Ride Reminder – Friday, June 30

Dog's head

Friday’s ride starts from the Port Hope Town Hall and will follow the Osaca Outing route that offers two options: 46 and 34 kilometre. There is no host, so do print your map.

Note that A Dog’s Purpose will be playing in the bandshell area across from the Town Hall.  This could be a fun activity to do after the ride, weather of course permitting!

Please comment to let riders know by 10:00 a.m. on Friday if you plan to ride. Comment as well if you’d like to hang out afterwards for the movie in the park. We could order pizza from Jim’s and eat it in the park.


Ride Reminder – Tuesday, June 27

This is a whistling duck!

Klaus is our host for this Tuesday’s ride that will follow the First Half Flat! route from Gosport. Choose from 56 or 44 kilometre routes.

Meet at the parking lot of the Whistling Duck (formerly Dougalls) at 75 Harbour Street. Lunch will follow there.

Use the comments to let your host know if you plan to join the ride so he can forewarn the restaurant of rough numbers.

Ride Reminder – Tuesday, June 20

From your hosts:

The ride on Tuesday, June 20, will start at our home, at 10am and will follow (trying again!!) my favourite route which takes you East and UP Shelter Valley Road and King Road. A relaxed ride with time to look around and no high speed lineouts (!!). Maps will be available.Following this there will be complementary burgers on the deck. Contributions of salad or dessert will be appreciated. Bring your usual personal effects.

See you here

Jacquie and Brian

If you’d like to download your own map, you can now find it on our Local Routes – first one under Cobourg.

Advance Ride Reminder – Tuesday, July 11

This is an early invitation to the Tuesday, July 11 ride that will take place at Sue’s cottage on Balsam Lake (see ride calendar for the address). The ride will start at 10:00 as usual. Sue will provide maps.

You’re welcome to arrive on Monday, any time after 11 am if you want to stay overnight, and/or you can stay over on Tuesday night.  According to Sue, there is lots of room in the cottage, or lots of lawn space if anyone wants to camp.

If you plan to join this ride, please make a comment on this post. Let Sue know if you’ll be staying over on either night and whether you’ll want to stay inside or camp.

More details will be provided a week before the 11th in the official Tuesday post.
