*2021 Update: We are currently looking for a new coordinator for the 2021-2022 season. If you are willing to volunteer please contact Colleen Wilson-Dick or Ilene Rushefsky Charland, Activity Co-convenors.
The Saturday Social Cyclists is a group for more experienced cyclists.
Rides will be every Saturday, beginning at 9:00 am - 10:00 am in May, until temperatures rise. All rides will be on paved roads, with some larger hills - Epping, Beaver Valley, 19, Pretty River Valley etc. The season will start off with warm up rides, that progress through the season to longer and hillier rides.
These rides explore the lovely countryside via main County Roads. We will have half way breaks (more or less often) at a coffee shop. Typical Distances are 45-65 km - and occasionally longer - at a typical speed of 20-25 km/h from May to October - weather permitting.
Rides will start in various locations so transporting your bike will be necessary. Details and directions of routes will be sent out via email. Rides vary with respect to sweep and regrouping practices.
We will be asking each participant to lead 2 rides over the season. We have developed a number of rides that we can share with the leaders or the leader can choose their own ride. We also plan to have at least one away ride - Manitoulin Island or Prince Edward County.
