Well, it did rain after all; and, no complaints from anyone about the cancellation.

Here’s the tentative plan for Sunday, assuming wind is from the west:

Meet at Stinsons at 7:30 am 7:30 am and ride to Renfrew via Campbell Dr, Braeloch, Stevenson, Lochwinnow, Gillan, all, Opeongo, S. Mcnaughton, Butler, Hwy 60, Pinnacle, GOE to Tim’s on Obrien; home via Whitton, Gillan, Lochwinnow, Thompson, RR, etc. for a total distance of 100 Kms+-.

NOTE the Venue and Time: Stinsons on White Lake Rd 7:30 am, sharp departure.

Temperature will be in the low twenties; wind west at 15. Who wouldn’t want to ride in that?

As for the ride, it’s a slight gradient to Braeloch; a short, sharp snap up to the Valley Carver. That’s about it. It’s a pretty flat ride. Well, there is Pinnacle Hill, of course. Coffee at 72 kilometres, I think. As usual, it’s steady as she goes, with minimal delays on the road. Bring gels, bars, water, electrolytes, etc. Liquids will be a key element tomorrow.

Alert: Important information: These are ‘no-drop’ group rides. It’s steady as she goes (conversational style), except for the hills where it’s every man for himself. Regroup at the top. Honest effort required by all. New cyclists welcome.

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.  Langston Hughes
