    The forecast for Saturday morning is mid twenties with partial sun. Perfect!

    This ride is for anyone who wants to get out on your road bike but at a more relaxed pace then the intermediate ride. We are going out towards Linwood and back around through Wellesley. Our route will take around 2.5hrs

    Here is the proposed route:

    You should be comfortable riding in a group (or have gone to the “Learn to Group Ride” on Wednesdays). This is a “no-drop” ride so come out and join us! http://waterloocyclingclub.ca/road/rides/wccsaturdayfondo

    New to the club? Check out our ride guide:

    This is an official Waterloo Cycling Club ride and you must be a 2017 member of WCC. Register here: http://waterloocyclingclub.ca/membership

    We’re meeting at Sobeys at Columbia and Fischer-Hallman at 8:30am with the other group rides.

    See you then!

    Great group of 11 riders today!
    We worked really well together by keeping a rotating pace line for a good portion of the ride. With the heat, it helps to stick together to conserve energy. Near the middle of the route, Peter got a flat and he changed in a flash – like a pro! I hope to be riding with him when I get a flat 😊. Near the end of the route, we had a fun time sprinting down Greenwood hill. Then for the final push, we raced along Berlett’s. It was a really fun group ride with a great group.
