So, we begin again. Will there be ribbons this year for anyone? Ribbons are good but rubber on the ground is better. It’s a new season and time to acquaint ourselves with the mechanics of group riding. Safety is all. Ride competently and maintain a sound bicycle. Does your water bottle fit your bottle cage? Is your saddle bag secure on the rails? Little things these, but important.

Please re-read the Blog disclaimer.

Here’s the tentative plan:

Meet at Stinsons at 7:30 am 7:30 am and ride to Renfrew.

Here’s the Route: Ride to Renfrew via Russett, 508, Goshen,  Gillan, Hall, Opeongo, 132 and then back into to Renfrew to Tim’s on O’Brien Rd for coffee after 45 kms; then, home via Whitton, Gillan, Lochwinnow, Stevenson, Campbell, etc for a total distance of approx 73 kms.  As usual, it’s steady as she goes, with minimal delays on the road. Bring gels, bars, water, electrolytes, etc.

NOTE the Venue and Time: Stinsons on White Lake Rd for 7:30 am departure.

Temperature will be quite cool to start but then warming up to 12C; wind SW at 15, with gusts to 25.
