Print out the Life View Heights route (57- or 47-kilometre routes) and plan to have your cycling legs ready for Stark Hill.

Lunch will follow in the Marina café.

    We spent a couple of days checking out the route. Richard will not be riding as he has an appointment with his cardiologist. I will be cycling a short route not indicated on the map; it’s approximately 33 km, which entails a left turn onto Morgans Road from Lakeshore, then following the rest of the route.
    Serious road works are taking place on Mill Street leading to the Lakeshore Road which according to signage indicate road closure on July 26 and onward, so we should be OK, but you never know. Anyway whatever there will be the usual Road Diversion signs if there’s a problem. The rest of the route is fine, so long as you don’t mind some really bumpy sections … though views from Cons.Rd.5 are spectacular.
    Take care making the left turn from Durham Hwy 2 onto Bennett Rd. I actually dismounted and walked across using the pedestrian light …. it was the rush hour, lots of traffic. Also lots of construction on Bennett south of the tracks so beware of accompanying traffic.
    See everyone on Tuesday 😊
