Official Road Rides have ended for the 2014 season.
The Tuesday night road ride is a core road ride. It is often the largest single gathering of WCC riders.
For many riders, this is the fastest, hardest ride of the week. Groups ride in tight, fast, rotating pacelines, over a short course (14km) up to 4 loops.  For the novice rider, the Tuesday Group Ride may only be 1 loop. There are 5 levels (or groups) which are formed before the ride.  1= racer…..5=novice.
In all cases, the Tuesday Group ride is designed to improve fitness levels and enhance group riding skills.
Novice riders will need to graduate from the Wednesday night Novice Road Ride prior to attending the Tuesday night ride.  All riders must abide by the Highway Traffic Act.

WHEN:

Tuesday night rides begin Tuesday April 8th, 2014 (weather depending)

WHERE:

The Erbsville Church at 6:30 (6:00 after labour day).

Arrive 10 minutes early for announcements and to find your group.

We’ve added variety to this year’s routes:

We received feedback that people wanted to try different routes this year and we’re rotating the schedule!  (See below) So, we looked at alternative routes to spice things up.

We defined 2 new routes.

1) BAMBERG LOOP/GREENWOOD HILL

“Hard and Hilly”. The 2011 Provincial Championship course. Combines the best of the old “short” loop course from years gone by (Kressler Hill & “the three sisters” on Weimar), with the new features of the route out to Wellesley (Greenwood Hill and the rollers and final climb on Hessen Strasse before Moser-Young). We expect it to be the most challenging loop yet. Just look at the profile of the course.

2) HAWKESVILLE LOOP 

“Sufferfest” Hill Repeats. The 2014 KW O-Cup race course. 9.2km with multiple climbs up Hawkesville.

APRIL – BAMBURG/GREENWOOD HILL LOOP
MAY  6 & 13 – HAWKESVILLE LOOP
MAY  20 & 27 – BAMBURG/GREENWOOD LOOP
JUNE 3 & 10 – HAWKESVILLE LOOP

NOTES:

  1. There is a chain across the entrance and exit of the church parking lot which was put in place to deter trucks from using it as a turn around. It is not locked and we are welcome to park at the church. Please put the chain back up if you are the last to leave.
  2. You MUST be a WCC member to ride.  Please affix your 2014  “WCC member sticker” to your bike and or helmet to designate you are a paid member.  This ensures we all have insurance extended to us through the Ontario Cycling Association.
  3. Please remember it is your responsibility to ensure that you are able to ride a minimum distance of 30 km and be able to repair your own flats.
  4. Given the length of our route and the speeds that we achieve, hybrid bicycles are not recommended for the Tuesday Night Ride.  “Aero-bars” are not allowed in formation riding
