Riding from North Cobourg – Friday, May 25

A Randy among three roses

Former GF members Randy and Anita will host Friday’s ride from their home North of Cobourg Their address is in the Ride Calendar.
Start time: 5:30
Route: We’ll take a route that travels up to Rice Lake via Lander Rd. In Gore’s Landing where the decision to make it shorter (29k) would mean turning south on Burnham and riding all the way back down to Smylie Rd. It’s a fast, mostly downhill 10k! The longer route carries on along Rice Lake Scenic Drive to Harwood and then beyond.
Dinner: Traditional potluck. (Don’t forget plates, cutlery, and BYOB)
Rumour has it there might be a bonfire after dinner. No promises, just sayin’.

    Hey everyone, if weather permits a bonfire after the potluck, you might want to bring a lawn chair.

    Thank you so much, Anita and Randy, for an absolutely wonderful evening filled with great riding (I REALLY liked that route!), excellent company (what a turnout!), delicious food and, of course, the best beer in Ontario! It was so generous of you to do this for us. We really miss not having you in our club. Next Friday’s ride is just down the road (chez Barb and John) from you 🙂

    As you undoubtedly know by now, I am looking after the Friday evening rides until the end of July when Peter takes over the onerous task. Club members have been wonderful at hosting this year and we only need six more hosts (five Friday evening hosts and one Saturday / Sunday morning host) between now and the end of my watch. Either you can host a ride from your home or from any other location in our riding area. Either way you need to decide upon a route (which could simply be one of the many routes available on the Wonderful Website!) and either provide (paper) maps or ask folks to download them. Most members who host rides from their homes also host a pot-luck supper afterwards, but this is not essential. Alternatively, you may elect to host a ride from a location other than your home and simply arrange for somewhere for folks to eat (restaurant, pub, picnic, etc.). Also, July is my stay-at-home month and if you would like to host a ride from your home without the hassle of planning a route I would be delighted to look after the riding (route planning, ride leading, etc.) aspects for you.

    The following rides need looking after as of May 25th, so step right up and volunteer for the good of your Club 🙂

    Friday June 8th

    Saturday June 16th or Sunday June 17th (you get to choose!)

    Friday June 29th

    Friday July 6th

    Friday July 22nd

    Friday July 29th

    If by the Tuesday before the ride no-one has volunteered as host, then “Plan B” will kick in. In that case, the Website will say that the ride has no host. However, a starting location for the ride will be announced on the Website and a route map will be posted. It will be up to the participants to figure out where to eat after the ride. One of the Friday Coordinators may, or may not, be there. Thanks to the generosity of our members we haven’t actually had to enact “Plan B” yet this year. Wouldn’t it be nice to keep it that way 🙂

    Hosting a Friday ride can be quite painless – all you have to do is to email me at bhedney@gmail.com and say “I’ll do it!” and I will take it from there 🙂

    I am adding this as a Comment to the May 25th ride information. I will also ask Ruth if she would be so kind as to make it a separate Post.
