Jacquie & Brian are hosting next weekend’s ride and want to make sure you have plenty of advanced notice to mark it on your calendar. Here is their invite:
The last ‘Friday’ ride of the year will be held next Saturday, 29th, starting at 2pm from the home of Jacquie & Brian Neale.
We will do my favourite, much repeated, route along Lakeshore, Grafton, Shelter Valley, Community Centre, (through the parking lot to avoid Payne), Greer, (watch that corner !!), Brook N and home.
I will have maps for anyone unfamiliar.
Following will be a sumptuous pot-luck dinner, courtesy of you.
See you there.
Sue will be hosting this Tuesday’s ride at 10:00 from the Orono Community Park.
Lunch will be at the Fire Hall Bistro (5304 Main St, Orono). Please comment to let Sue know if she should count you in the numbers.
Sue will provide maps.
Don’t forget your mittens!
Get ready for some peak Autumn views south of Millbrook this Sunday! Mich and Mel are hosting this Sunday’s ride commencing at 10:00 a.m. from the Farmer’s Market on Dufferin Street in Millbrook.
Potluck picnic to follow, but if you haven’t joined us for this ride before, be advised that the made-to-order pizzas are a popular choice for your main course.
Mich has a route prepared south of Millbrook and will have some maps available for the ride. Keep your eye on this post as well over the next couple days – we may be adding it.
It’s our second last end-of-week ride for the season – hope to see you out!
Gail L., one of our new members, is hosting tomorrow’s ride out of Millbrook at 10:00 a.m.. Park by the rink in Millbrook and plan to lunch at the Pastry Peddler (17 King St E, Millbrook). Please leave a comment if you plan to join the ride!
The route is one Sue created earlier in the season that was a hit! Maps will be provided.
Welcome to our new member, Susan who most of you have met on the many rides she has joined so far this season. She is hosting her first GF potluck lunch, to follow a 10:00 a.m. ride from her place in Cobourg this coming Saturday. You can find her address in the Member Directory. Here are her words of welcome:
Looking forward to having the group here on Saturday morning. I think it would be easiest if everyone parked at the elementary school behind my house and we can leave for the ride from there. Afterwards it is just a short walk through the school yard to my house.
Re: potluck, I will provide some BBQ’d chicken etc. if others can bring pot luck.
Just a heads up that I do not yet have a stove in my kitchen (not for lack of trying). I have a microwave, induction hot plate (thanks to Barb and John) and a large toaster oven. Crockpots would work as well.
We will be doing the “Hilly 55er”. According to Marshall, it has something for everyone – distance and hills for the crazies, Cornish Hollow Road which everyone should ride this time of year and loads of opportunities to short-cut into any distance one desires.
I am new to the area and I am also directionally challenged as well as a slow cyclist so someone else will have to lead the outing.
A hearty welcome to our new member Liz who will host Tuesday’s ride, starting a the Bewdley Arena at 10:00.
We will do the Scenic Ride with a lunch destination at 1:00 pm at Rhino’s Roadhouse.
Liz will bring lots of maps to give out. Please use the comments to let Liz know if you’ll be joining the group!
Katherine is hosting her annual Freewheelers’ Thanksgiving celebration, starting at 5:00 p.m this Friday. We’ll follow Katherine’s Ride (36 or 52 km), built by Brian for ride’s from Katherine’s! Here are your hostess’ words of welcome:
Just confirming that I went on a turkey hunt and have acquired a 30lb birdie. Hoping many can come Friday for the ride at 5 pm and the festivities afterwards. Richard is also doing his infamous ham and I hope that people will bring their usual fabulous contributions.
Extended family and friends also welcome but would like to get an idea of numbers…. just in case back up bird is required.
So as the lady requests, please use the comments if you plan to join us!
