Alas, the weather did not cooperate last Tuesday, so Marshall is going to try again. If this posting looks familiar, it’s because it’s an exact copy of last Tuesday’s. The only difference for next Tuesday’s ride is that the weather is going to be awesome, right? Over to you Marshall.
Although Mother Nature seems a little slow of the start line, it’s that “blossom” time of the year – i.e., time for the Ganaraska Freewheelers’ 6th annual “Port Hope Blossom Ride”. Yes, it’s been 5 years since we headed out from the Port Hope Town Hall on our first blossom ride ending with an amazing time on The Beamish patio.
Come on out this Tuesday and join your biking friends on this annual fun ride. The route has been changed up a bit this year, but we’ll still be hitting all the usual “not to be missed” views – Baulch Rd lilac tunnel, Loyalist Road and 4th Line apple orchards, Bethel Grove hills of lilacs, Vimy Ridge lilac show plus climb and the amazing fields of lilacs at Cranberry Road and the 401.
All ending with lunch at The Beamish, hopefully on the patio.
Ride details at a glance are:
- Start location: Port Hope Town Hall (Victoria Street Ball Park for the non climbers)
- Time: 10:00 a.m.
- Distance: 58 kms with 3 shortcuts of 39, 45 or 50 kms
- Lunch: The Beamish (hoping for patio weather)
Here’s hoping that Mother Nature AND the Weather Gods are with us on Tuesday.
