This is one of those wonderful Ganaraska Freewheelers routes that always prove to be well thought out, and take in the best roads. Since we’ve been seeing a lot of Cobourg lately, we’ll try a Port Hope start and see some new scenery. It’s a 42km route with a shorter 24k option. If you want to add some distance, you could start in Cobourg and ride to the start point rather than driving. So far the weather is showing 8° and sunny. Not bad for November!
Start time: 10:00am
Start location: The Town Hall in Port Hope
Route: The Perrytown Pedlar route map here
So, what do you say?
I hope to ride
I really want to ride but I have a client coming at 11:30 so…maybe what I can do, since the ride is close to where I live, is ride the last part of the route first, meet up with you at town hall at 10:00 and then ride with you up to the 4th line at which point I will leave you in order to get home in time to work. It means that I won’t be with you for long but at least it will inspire me to get my tush out the door for a ride. It looks like a nice route though; Hopefully I can do the whole thing some time before the snow flies. By the way, I’m pretty sure that Grist Mill Rd, between the 5th and the 7th line is a dirt road so be forewarned. It’s very beautiful though.
I’m still thinking about it if the weather is OK. If I do go, I’ll be riding from Cobourg, then most likely doing the short route as I have a meeting to attend in the afternoon.
It is looking a bit cool for the morning tomorrow so I will check the winds and see if I am going or not. Friday will be a little warmer yet so I may wait.
Unfortunatley, I’ve suddenly some down with a cold, my first in years, and I’ve been blowing my nose like crazy all afternoon. Not sure how that would translate to a bike ride but I can guess! So I’ll go to bed early tonight and see how I feel when I wake up in the morning, then decide whether to ride or not.
I will not be riding this morning.
Is anyone else riding this morning? Wondering if I should bundle up and head out…..
Decision made…..I’m staying home with my son who’s home sick today.
