Cycling from Port Hope Town – Friday, May 4

Join us Friday for the Hope to Hamilton ride taking us North to Rice Lake and back to Port Hope. There are two shortcuts to this 50-kilometre route, reducing the distance to 36 or 32 kilometres, and removing a few climbs.

Please comment by Friday morning if you plan to join the ride. Those participating can decide a dining option. Brain H. will no doubt be watching the weather report and use the comments to update you, should inclement weather require a change in plans. Let’s all hope for blue skies!

    Weather permitting, I will be there!


  2. BrianH says:

    This is our first “un-hosted” Friday ride of the season. The only real differences are that there will be no official Ride Leader to act as your friendly tour guide and you will need to fend for yourselves regarding somewhere to eat after the ride. Having said that, it is not too late for someone to volunteer to look after this ride. Since the route and starting location have already been determined, all you would have to do is to turn up and figure out the dining arrangements. Anyone wish to volunteer?

    I should be there for the ride!


  4. Jennifer says:

    I hope to ride, not sure about Andy as yet.

    I may or may not be home for this,,,Olympus Burger is my preference if anyone is asking ,,,,rain, rain keep away!


  6. BrianH says:

    It is 7:30AM and the good news is that the rain has stopped…….however, Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for this afternoon calling for very strong winds with gusts up to 80 km/h. Yikes! To make matters worse, there is the chance of a thunderstorm along with these crazy winds. I am planning to go mountain biking this morning as I don’t think the conditions will be conducive for riding this afternoon / evening. Now, Tuesday looks good 🙂

    It is 8 AM and the good news is that the rain has stopped; however……Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement calling for very strong winds as high as 80 km/h for later this afternoon. And, to make matters worse, there is also the possibility of a thunderstorm thrown into the mix! Personally, I am plannng to get my riding in on my mountain bike this morning as it would appear that the conditions may not be conducive to enjoyable (or even safe) riding at 5:30 PM. Now, Tuesday is looking good 🙂


  8. BrianH says:

    I commented twice already, but those comments seem to have vanished! I am mountain biking this AM and in view of the forecast I am riding tonight 😔


    • BrianH says:

      Oops – that last comment should have read that I am NOT riding tonight!


    • BrianH says:

      In case you are confused, my two messages from earlier on Friday have now found their way on to the site. My fault as I used an email address that the system didn’t recognize and, consequently, they had to await moderation.
      Did anyone ride last night. Environment Canada’s “Wind Warning” was certainly warranted in my opinion. It was crazy out there!


  9. Barbara Spencer says:

    Spencers are taking a pass on this one although an 80 km tail wind is tempting.


  10. bradyperkin says:

    Really windy up north by us so I am NOT coming either. No doubt some brave souls will venture out……..


  11. Sue Pott says:

    Too windy for me. Hopefully we can do this route une autre fois.


    • BrianH says:

      Yes, it’s crazy out there right now (7:15 PM). I can’t imagine trying to cycle in it! I think we should do this lovely route the next time we have an “un-hosted” ride.
