Okay, this may be a bit early, what with the latest fall of snow telling us that winter is not about leave anytime soon. Still, I thought the mere mention of some tentative dates might cheer you up and give impetus to your indoor training. Here is how I see the ride schedule:

March 30-31, April 06-07, 13-14, 20-21, 27-28—50/75 to 100 km rides each day;

May 04-05 Quyon 105 km/ Haley Station 100 km
May 11-12 Pucker St hills/ Pinnacle Rd Hill
May 18-19 Middleville Circuit 140 km/ Pucker St hills
May 25-26 Pembroke 170 km/ Quyon 105 km
June 01-02 anybody’s guess
June 08-09 RLCT

All subject to change and weather dependent.
Mixed in here will also be rides to Mountain Chute 120 Kms (Hills), other hill repeats, rides to Carleton Place and Kanata 100 kms, etc all to be determined.

Just a note for the April training rides, these are hit and miss because of the uncertainty of good weather. Regardless, be ready to ride 50-75 Kms right off the bat.

April rides will probably start at 10 am or earlier, if possible.
May rides will begin at 8 am.

Specifics (time, date, venue) for Saturday rides will be posted by Friday (the day before the ride); for Sunday rides, specifics will be posted on Saturdays.

Now aren’t you just pumped! hc
