Caution note: there is a 1.6 km busy stretch on County Rd 2 heading north starting at km 8.6. It's largely downhill and there is an extra lane or good paved shoulder for most of the distance. However, in some spots the paving is a bit rough or narrows. Thus, proceed cautiously. Consider proceeding in small compact groups so that the vehicles are spared the challenge/frustration of passing long strewn out groups of cycliists. Emphasize your presence with a rear flashing red light.
A 62 or 88 km ride from the village of Ashburn through the Oak Ridges Morraine to lunch at either the Nestleton Country Store in Nestleton or the Wolf Run Golf Club just after Janetville.
Meet for a 10 am departure at Ashburn Community Park on the west side of Ashburn Road, 200 m north of the main intersection (map). To get to Ashburn drive east on Hwy 401 to Brock Road, north to CR5 at Claremont, then east to Ashburn and north to the parking lot.
