From Brian H:
As most of you know I am the Friday Ride Coordinator until at least the end of this month. Although I organized the ride last Friday and will do so again this coming Friday (details below), it would be wonderful if there were volunteer Ride Leaders for the three remaining July Friday rides (July 16th, 23d and 30th).
At least for the month of July we do not expect members to host rides from their homes; rather, it is simply a case of “choose a starting location”, “choose a route” and figure out what, if anything, to do after the ride. Couldn’t be simpler!
Details for Friday July 9
This Friday, we will follow the Pretty & Easy route that is listed under Osaca on our Local Cycling Routes. However, we will not be starting the ride in Osaca! My preference is to start at the Sylvan Glen Conservation Area. My only concern is that the parking area there is not that large and that it might be a little crowded with people swimming in the river during this hot spell.
I plan to monitor the situation over the next two or three evenings and I will post an update later in the week. An alternative would be to start from the Port Hope High School, as suggested by the police officer last Friday. So, the route is fixed but be sure to check back on Thursday or Friday for a confirmation of the starting location! In any event, you may wish to bring something along for the apres-ride festivities. I will, of course, bring the “loo tent” 🙂
