Riding from Wilmot Conservation Area – Friday, September 4

Mich and Mel are hosting Friday’s 48-km ride in the Newcastle area, beginning at 4:30. Their invitation is below.

The ride will be the July 24 ride backwards. We will end with the bike paths and start with the Lakeshore. Very flat. The climb out of Bond Head being the worst.

Parking will be at the same spot as July 24 at Wilmot Creek Conservation area at the south end of Toronto Street (note it is currently under construction, so you have to go through the Port of Newcastle subdivision to reach the parking.)

There are no facilities there but should be ample parking and room for chairs afterwards.

Maps will be provided at the start. Below is an image and if you’d like to print out your own advanced copy, just click on the image.

Note: Barb provided on the Facebook group some very specific directions to get to the starting point which might help anyone who wasn’t at the July 24 ride:

South on Mill Street which becomes Port of Newcastle Drive, right on Milligan and drive to the end which is the south end of Toronto Street. Or, sometimes we just drive around until we see a bunch of cars and bikes!

And last but not least, if you have not yet ridden with the club this season, remember to bring a signed copy of your COVID waiver.
