The 'long' group of eight had a swell ride also! The roads in and around Fonthill never get old, and the twisty-turny, undulating Hollow Road is always a treat. Thanks to all for making the trip down, and a big thanks to Jim Wadleigh for leading the not-so-short ride.

Thirteen rider started this annual ride, roughly in two groups.
Group Animal, consisting of starting riders Jim, Jeremy, Anne, Karen, Larry, and Claire, finished with 111.05km, 633m climbing in 4 hours 15 minutes, for an average ride speed of 26.16kph. The extra 7 km and extra climbing can be blamed on Garmin (or, more likely Machine-Operator Interface, a term from Jeremy)
Awesome sights along the way, including giant ships, truly enormous hydro works, and miles of ripening grapes. Migrant workers on mountain bikes travelling at Islands speed, nice little snack stop at Zooma Zooma in Jordan, and good teamwork were highlights for me.
Thanks James Stewart for leading this annual event.
I have only one question..... where was everybody?
Maybe next year

Thanks Wilfred. Good luck to you and all the club members riding Centurion this weekend.

Wilfred

That's a mighty fine route you got there, James. Brother Ron, Bille and I will be battling it out up at Blue Mtn so we'll ride it another time.

Hi,

I'm looking at getting a ride from someone for the long ride on Sunday.

If someone can text me that would be great.

I'll echo that sentiment Jim... shaping up to be a great day!

By the way, anyone fancying some post-ride deliciousness on Sunday should consider hitting up the Avondale Dairy Bar for some thick, rich, old-timey milkshakes! You'll find it at 461 Stewart Road, south of Carlton, about a 10 minute drive from the park.

In speaking with Jim Wadleigh, who will lead the shorter ride, we decided to switch it from the originally advertised 77k route to this newly drafted 102k route. The intent is to minimize exposure to Niagara Falls tourist traffic and maximize exposure to some beautiful, escarpment roads. Feel free to contact Jim directly (jimwadleigh@rogers.com) with your shorter-ride questions, or to reserve your spot in his car!

Jim Wadleigh

If anyone wants to carpool from near Exhibition Park, I have room in an Outback for 4 total with bikes (three in a Thule upright roof rack, one inside) and kit.
Just send an email to jimwadleigh@rogers.com to confirm. We will meet at 0800h, load up, have an espresso/latte, and leave by 0830h.
I will be leading the 77k ride, so we should be back by 4PM or earlier.
Rain or shine.
Last minute, call or text 519 830 8919

John Tait

Daryl Leblanc

I am in and I can drive 1 or 3 others depending on if I take my car or van.
