Okay-hello. I suppose, like me, you are more relaxed this week at this time vs last week at this time. No RCLT or big tour this weekend. Still, I think we will ride a few kms. Here is what I’m thinking. It’s the Arnprior-Calabogie-Norton Rd-Pucker St-Burnstown Rd-Arnprior circuit, similar to what we rode last September. Total distance is 107 kms, with about 800 metres of climbing. We will stop for coffee at the Neat. The total climb is more than the RLCT. No flies on us, I’d say.  Route and time and venue to be posted on Friday afternoon, once i get a better read on the weather and wind direction. Pace will be relaxed, with the odd surge but nothing crazy. We want to have fun–right!

Expect a low turnout, since some of the lads are away/not available-Keith, Peter, others? Still, give it a thought.

For those not wanting to join us, you might want to consider the rides at www.mmbm.ca scheduled for Saturday.

Create account at , log all your riding miles- RLCT included- for the month of June. Lanark is ahead right now, the MAFIA could really pull Renfrew up to them.
