If you haven’t had a chance yet to bring out your wheels and enjoy some spring cycling, take heart – Brenda and Wayne are hosting our kickoff ride of the year, followed by a traditional potluck.
Join us at their home in Baltimore as early as 1:00 p.m. rain or shine for a 2:00 p.m. start to the ride! We’ll be following the Spring Fling – only we are starting and ending at Nagle Road. Distances are 32, 41, and 45 kilometres. Hardcore spring riders will also have the option of adding Bickle Hill Road! For anyone wanting to do just a short loop (ie. shorter than what is shown on the route map), it is quite a nice ride into town from our house along part of the waterfront trail and back along Elgin Street or Densmore Road to Nagle Road and home.
Remember to bring your potluck offering, beverage of choice, plates, glasses and cutlery. And pray to the weather gods!
Important Note: are asking riders to arrive as early as 1:00 pm so that we can ask you to sign a new waiver for the 2019 season. In our first exec meeting this year, we identified a date problem with the forms you all completed at the AGM. We took the opportunity to make some other improvements to the form and will bring copies for you to sign. Alternatively, you can download the new form here, sign it, and bring it along to the ride. Our new secretary Brenda and VP responsible for safety, Pete, will have copies available, receive your signed form and make the process speedy and painless. If you have completed the new forms already at home, you can come at the regular time for the ride – though you’re still welcome to come early to reacquaint yourself with your fellow riders. Guests are welcome – they too will need to sign the waiver.
We look forward to seeing everyone after a long white winter.
