2024 Update: We need a new leader for the Recreational Cycling activity. After many years of leading the group Caroline Bacher is ready to hand over to a new leader. If interested, please contact Caroline, who would be happy to share all her information, routes etc to whomever steps up!
In 2023 the original Recreational Cycling group split into two groups. The e-bikes cycle on Monday (and are now known as the E-Bikes + Others) and the Recreational Cycling group moved to Wednesdays.
This is easy cycling along local trails and country roads of Thornbury, Meaford, Collingwood, Blue Mountain and Wasaga Beach. We try to avoid steep hills but sometimes have a few little ones to climb. Hybrid bikes with various speeds are preferred as they have wider tires than a road bike.
We usually begin in the month of May and have a meeting to review bicycle safety. Our rides take place on Wednesday mornings beginning at 9:30 a.m. (depending on the weather we may start at 10:00 a.m.) We cycle for an hour and a half then have a coffee at a local restaurant. Since we begin our rides at various locations it is imperative that you have transportation to get your bike to the starting point.
We sometimes venture further afield just to add some interest to our rides. For example, in the past, we have driven to Midland, Anten Mills and Owen Sound.
Information about the individual rides will be sent weekly by email to all members of the group and includes a link to register. Make sure you always bring your PROBUS emergency contact card with you!
