Riding from Cobourg – Saturday, August 18 – 10:30 a.m. start

Marshall and Barb – great smiles!

Barb and John will host a ride starting at 10:30 a.m. from their home. We’ll follow the East Danforth map, 50 or 33K with lots of options for longer or shorter routes. There will be an apres-ride bbq. Meat and veggie burgers, sausages, buns and condiments will be provided. You can bring nibblies, salad or dessert if you like.

We will cook and eat in jig time because the main event will be a Veggie Car Derby!  The following youtube videos will give you an idea of what you will be doing:



Get your thinking caps on and creative juices flowing.  Members will form teams of two or three to build a race car in a set amount of time and then we will hold races on a double section racing ramp.  A variety of vegetables, and wooden axle materials will be provided.  Participants may bring optional decorative fruits or whimsy.   There will be prizes.

    We are excited to do this too. John has built an amazing new racing ramp and we will be finding car building veggies and other goodies. It would be good to have some confirmations so we can plan our forays.

      We will be getting suitable (we hope) veggies such as potatoes, carrots and the like. If you look at the video some people use fruit to decorate so if you want to get really really creative…..
