Cycling from Millbrook – Tuesday, July 9

Jen & TJ invite you to Tuesday’s ride!

Tuesday July 9th, we will meet at the Millbrook arena for 10 am to start our ride. Bring your bathing suit and towel because the creek is a perfect place to cool off like many of us did last year after our very hot ride!

We will lunch naturally at The Pastry Peddler in downtown Millbrook starting at 12:30 and onward. They are aware of various show up times since some may do the long route and some the short.

We are doing the Otonabee Twice route and TJ and I will have maps available day of as TJ is making a shorter route for people that don’t want to do the longer one.

A few of us are going to 4th Line Theatre after to see, “Bloom”. If any of you are interested in joining us, call the theatre and get your tickets and we will reserve seats for you and will see you there!

Hope to see many of you out like last Tuesday. Summer is here and the sun is out! Spin spin spin!

We’ll have maps available…options from 20 km flattish, 34 with some hills or 50 with more !

We all start together down highway 2 ( it is sort of unavoidable) and then can break off . . . heading down the lakeshore, up to St. Anne’s, or even beyond to Eddystone.

Cycling from Cobourg, Tuesday, July 2

School’s out for Summer! Jen and TJ are your hosts for our first July ride of the season Starting at 10 am on Tuesday. Their invitation is below.

On Tuesday, we will lunch at Julie’s Place in Cobourg on the corner of University and William. It is the old Let’s Eat. We will park kiddie corner at the old Home Hardware building centre, so we don’t clog up the parking lot at the restaurant, as it is very limited space. Our reservation is at 12:30, but they are aware that we will be trickling in as we finish our ride.

The route will be the Rice Lake Ramble, but instead of starting in Precious Corners, we will go up Ontario Street from the Home Hardware and stick together until at least Cornish Hollow.  There is not a short route (main route is 51km), but it can be shortened easily by not going as far north as Harwood.

Please indicate on the website if you plan to dine so that we may respectfully tell the restaurant how many of us we are.

Thanks and hope to see many of you out!!

Cycling from Port Hope Town Hall – Friday, June 28

For those of you who will be around this long weekend, join us at 5:30 for our Friday evening ride from the Port Hope Town Hall. We’ll follow the Beautiful Bewdley route.

Klaus is your most persistent host this Tuesday, tempting the weather gods to yet another duel.

Cross your fingers for sunny skies.

Cycling from Cobourg – June 21

Summer Solstice – is it safe to take our jackets and long pants off?

Barb & John will host this Friday’s ride – their invitation is below.

Join us for a Summer Solstice ride at the Spencer’s. That should guarantee a long day of sunshine and what better way to celebrate the longest day of the year than to ride and dine with friends?  We’ll do the East Danforth route.  If the route isn’t long enough (50 and 33 km) for some, there are likely ways to add a loop or two. 

The usual drill. 5:30 start, lots of parking in the driveway, bring your own eating gear and beverages.
