Welcome to the inaugural Sunday Rec Ride. It’ll be good to see all the riders joining us from other rides and all the new members. We meet at 9 am at the Ashburnham Ale House on Hunter St in East City.
The purpose of this ride is to offer a recreational and slower pace alternative to some of the existing Sunday rides. We will be focused on being able to increase our distance over the season. Rest assured, things will start slowly/gradually. We want to give everyone time to build her/his confidence and fitness.
All Rec rides are no drop rides – we will move at the pace of slowest rider. The goal of this rec ride is meant to be an introduction to adding distance to your weekly riding. That said, over the season speed may vary at times due to the routes/terrain we are riding and the conditions we are riding in (e.g., heat).
The PCC would like to remind riders that there will be a strict enforcement policy on valid memberships — no membership, no ride.
Planned route for May 6:
We will head up towards Bridgenorth via Woodland and then back through Lakefield and along River Road. The ride will be approximately 53 km.
