July 04/15: 98 Kms; # Hrs 07; 555 Metres; Seven Riders

Well, hello again. Still on the theme of end-times. That triptych could be improved (heresy, no doubt) by the addition of “biking”. Well, that’s a stretch but one must fill the void as best one can. This morning we did just that. Here’s Sunday’s attempt:

Meet at Stinsons White Lake Road at 8 am 8 am and ride to Renfrew via Russett and Anderson Rd to Miller to Lockwinnow, Gillan, etc to Tims for coffee; Home via Bruce St and Castleford, RR, etc for a total distance of 70- 75 Kms; or, 90 kms if we extend it down Garden of Eden to Storyland (TBD). Either way, this is not a long one and there is some very nice new pavement on Lochwinnow and Gillan. And, of course, GoE is a beauty all on its own. You just don’t want to miss this one. It’s Sunday and we’ll take some pressure off the pedals. If you haven’t been out in a while, this is the one – light and easy. Let’s enjoy what should be a glorious morning cycle, albeit shorter in distance. But, hey, not every ride needs to be the full Monty.

Now, that’s not saying to-day’s was but it was uptempo. Fortunately, the conditions allowed for a good pace without too much effort. ML kept us honest and JG ran off the front, requiring some chasing down by KO. But, it was all fun, especially Stonecrest. You just should have been there. Hope to see you tomorrow.

Just a reminder, it’s steady as she goes. These are group rides. Solo riding is for the week days. Weather 18 C, with winds N/NW of 15.
