Ride participants should be reasonably experienced cyclists who are comfortable with group and pace line riding. This likely means you’ve been riding with Tuesday group 4, 5 or with the fastest group at the Wednesday novice ride.
Pace: 27 – 32km/h average. The core group of riders from 2012 typically averaged 30km/h.
Distance: Rides are typically 60 – 75km in length, with the possibility of milestone rides of 100km if the riders are preparing for an event.
When: Starting April 13th, please watch the website for potential varying start times other than 8:30 am. This ride will go most Saturday’s during the riding season, with the possible exception of long weekends or when other cycling events occur (such as Tour de Waterloo). Watch for forum posts in the case of extreme weather.
