Well, I made the right call, I think, this morning. Hope you agree.

How did you spend the morning? I made use of  my found time to cut my hair with one of those hand-held home clippers. It comes with many attachments, all of which are of no use to me. I basically set the clippers to the ‘closest’ position and shave away, so to speak. Now, this didn’t take a lot of time but one doesn’t want to make a mistake. And, now that I’m finished, it looks rather good, actually!

Okay, enough with the frivolity. We’ll be on the bikes on Sunday. There is no question of that. Sunshine will greet us at the door in the morning. The temperature will be cool and it will be windy. You will need a gilet if not a jacket.

And, so begins the donning of the gear for the next few weeks until Thanksgiving, when we’ll probably end the group rides until next April.

If you haven’t seen the last 8  kms of the Vuelta Stage 14, check it out on Steephill. This race just gets better and better. To say that it was exciting, is an understatement.

Here is Sunday’s tentative plan:

Meet at Stinsons on White lake Road at 8 am 8 am and ride to Haley’s Station via Burnstown, Opeongo, McNaughton, Butler, Hwy 60, etc; Home via the Four Crns and Storyland for a total distance of approx 100 kms, with some moderate climbing on the route. This is another of our great training circuits. It will put us in good stead for the MEC 100 next weekend. The wind will be tough, so all hands on deck. If you can make it, that would be great.

Get out and ride your bicycle.

Don’t forget to register for the MEC 100 September 14.
