Hello and welcome. This is your place for information about weekend cycling in and around Arnprior. You are welcome to join us but please read the disclaimer first. We’re just a bunch of recreational cyclists who like to ride and enjoy the charms of the countryside and the good humour of each other’s company. In other words, it’s all about cycle, coffee and conversation. Can’t beat that. There is certainly room for you and your good humour, too. We always try to live in the moment, to take nothing for granted, to be thankful for life, “to breath and smile.”

Any other events, let me know.

Here’s the tentative plan for Saturday:

Meet at Stinsons on White Lake Rd for 7:30 am 7:30 am start and ride to 1) Burnstown via Campbell Dr, Braeloch, RR, Thompson, LW, Gillan, Barnett, Burnstown (Km 42); home via White Lake, Waba, Conc 9, WL Rd to Stinsons for a total distance of 72 Kms. NB: no coffee stop on Saturday until we get back to Stinsons. 2) Ride to Wellington Park for a 10:40 start and then to Clay Bank Park (6 kilometres with the Big Relay Baton).

This route is mostly flat, except for the section from Renfrew to Burnstown. We have no training goal for Saturday other than to spin the legs and get some kilometres. Plan is to keep the effort moderate. Ask yourself, “where else would you rather be?”

As usual, it’s steady as she goes, with minimal delays on the road.

Weather: 14C – 21 C, mainly sunny, winds west 15. POP 10%.

Caveat: All this subject to change based upon the turnout and the weather and rider consensus.
