    For the last three years, the Wednesday Wheelies have left the "safety" of our Toronto area countryside and headed up to Collingwood for three days of great riding and socializing. In 2020 we'll be heading back to Collingwood on 
    Tuesday May 26, Wednesday May 27 and Thursday May 28. We will also have a second outing to Collingwood in the fall.

    The event is a Wednesday Wheelies event. However, we will be delighted if other members of the TBN join us.



    The Routes
    The routes are all available on RWGPS. If you would like to see an interactive RWGPS consolidated map of all of them, click here, and then click on the button at the bottom left titled "Show all on map". There is also an image of the consolidated map at the bottom of this web page.

It heads south east out of Collingwood into the countryside towards Stayner. To see the route, click here and then click on the Clearview Trail box on the right. The route is 14 km from end to end, although you can turn around at any point. The route is suitable for road bikes.
      • After Thursday's rides, we will head home.

      Accommodation You are on your own in finding accommodation. Because the event is a midweek event before the start of the school summer holidays, our understanding is that you should not have any difficulty in finding accommodation and that the prices should be reasonable. 

      Although we will not have a headquarters hotel for the event, we have done a little bit of digging around for options. The Luxury Inn, Comfort Inn and Days Inn are all centrally located, modern and reasonably priced. The Luxury Inn will likely be the cheapest. With luck, you may be able to get mid week, pre season pricing at the other options. The Milestone Motel is an old style drive up. It may be a little cheaper yet. It's well located and has very good reviews.

      Everything is Optional If you choose to participate in the event, it will be totally optional as to whether you ride all three days, and attend all the social functions. If you wish to have a non-riding partner join you, terrific. And if you wish to play golf or participate in some other activity, no problem. Our big picture goal is simply to have an out-of-town cycling meet-up in June in a lovely location where there will also be opportunities for socializing.

      Registration If you think you will likely participate in “The Wednesday Wheelies Go to Collingwood”, please click on the button at the left and register as soon as possible (including for your partner, if applicable). If you change your mind at any time, not an issue. Just let us know at wedwheelie@tbn.ca and we'll delete your registration.

      • Hornell, New York, USA
      Register



      For the last three years, a group of Wednesday Wheelie types have headed down to Hornell for some cycling in the northern Allegheny Highlands (click here for Wikipedia article). The Highlands are part of the vast Appalachian Mountain Range of the Eastern United States and Canada. In less technological times they posed a significant barrier to land travel in eastern North America.  In our era, they are a hidden cycling gem - great scenery, terrific roads and, best of all, lots of challenging hills. We are therefore again scheduling two Hornell outings for 2020 - once in the spring and again in the fall. The spring outing will be from Tuesday June 16 to Thursday June 18. If you think you might be interested in joining the Wednesday Wheelie Hornell peloton for this outing, please read on. In the past some of our friends from the Niagara Freewheeler also joined us. We expect that some of them will be back with us this year, and perhaps also a few friends from elsewhere.

      Accommodation We will be staying in the Econo Lodge (website) in North Hornell which is a short distance south west of the Finger Lakes. Please call the hotel directly at 607-324-0800 to make your reservation. Tell them that you are part of the Wednesday Wheelies group and ask them to put you in the "New Building". It's a separate structure of 18 large rooms, all of which are non-smoking. If you run into any confusion trying to make your booking, we suggest you call back when Sabra is on duty. There are also about 50 additional rooms in the other buildings. You can expect to pay around $60 per night, including breakfast. Don't try and use one of the many of the online booking options as you may actually pay more, and you probably won't be able to ask to be put in the New Building. We suggest you drive down on the Monday evening and stay through until the Thursday morning. However, if you want to come for either a shorter or longer stay, no problem. 

      The Scenery As mentioned above, the region is very hilly, and so not for the faint of heart (sorry). You may wish to consider using a granny gear bike. There are some really long beautiful remote stretches on all of the routes. It will be impossible to avoid enjoying the scenery, even when you are climbing! You may even decide that the scenery is spectacular. Be sure to bring along some sort of camera device.


      The Rides We've plotted hilly rides for the first two days. On the third day, there will two around a lake options - one flat and the other hilly. Click here to see RWGPS plots of the rides (click on the "Show all on map" button in order to see the big picture). The RWGPS link includes some other options for anyone choosing to stay longer than three days. As the event approaches, we will refine parking lot information, refreshment stops and other details, and some nits will be fixed. Start times for the rides will tentatively be 9:30. There will be a short drive to the start locations on the first two days, and a slightly longer drive to the start location for the rides around the lake on the third day. 



      After Ride Socializing and Dinner Each day after the ride, we will meet in the parking lot outside our rooms for some after ride socializing and rehydrating. We will generally head off as a group around 6 pm for dinner at one of the local restaurants. 

      Flexibility Since we all be staying in the same hotel and will likely be a fairly small group, we will have the flexibility to change details to suit the circumstances (e.g., start times or restaurant details).

      Weather and Cancelling Your Hotel Reservation Click here to check out the weather forecast for Hornell (this page also includes also includes links to 14 day and 7 day forecasts). If the weather looks like it will be really lousy, you will be able to cancel your hotel reservation without penalty up to 11 am on the day before your scheduled arrival. If we have one bad day of weather, Corning is a very touristy town about an hour away that's worth a visit. Of particular interest is the Corning Glass Museum (website) where you can learn all about glass making and how Corning developed Pyrex, Corelle, fiber optic cable, gorilla glass and other game changing technical glass products. Another bad weather day option would be a visit to Ithaca and Cornell University.


      Driving For driving directions, click here. Google Maps estimates the driving time to be 3.5 hours in good conditions. Of course, there is the border and possible traffic delays. Hence, we recommend that you drive down on the Monday evening. In order to avoid roaming charges on your phone, you may wish to download the Google Maps sections for the area before leaving home. This will allow you to put your phone in airplane mode after crossing the the border. In addition to using Google Maps to get to the hotel, you will also find it useful for finding parking lots, restaurants, etc.

      Registration If you think you are likely to join us, please click on the registration button on the left and register as soon as possible. If you change your mind at any point, not an issue. However, it will be very helpful to us if you register so that we have a reasonable sense of our likely numbers.

      Questions If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact us.

      This week's rides start in Campbellville, and go to the Lowville Golf Club for lunch (website). The Club is on Britannia Road on the right, one driveway past Conservation Halton and 400 metres before the church at Guelph Line where we used to turn left to descend down into Lowville.

      Our fall outing to Hornell in 2020 will be from Tuesday 10 to Thursday September 12. Some of us will also be staying on until Saturday September 14 to ride The Highlander (see below).

In less technological times they posed a significant barrier to land travel in eastern North America.  In our era, they are a hidden cycling gem - great scenery, terrific roads and, best of all, lots of challenging hills.

      The Highlander Perhaps the routes we have plotted won't be enough for you. For the truly inclined at heart, click here to read about the Highlander. It's a charity ride of 165.6 km with 3041 metres of climbing! It takes place on the Saturday following our stay in Hornell. There will likely also be a number of our cycling friends from the Niagara Freewheelers participating. You can register on the day of the event so you don't need to make a commitment until you see the weather and how you feel. Because the ride is so challenging, the number of participants will be quite modest (unlike many charity events). There will be several well stocked food and drink stations along the way. You may get very tired, but you definitely won't bonk. There will also be a dinner at the finish.



      After Ride Socializing and Dinner Each day after the ride, we will meet in the parking lot outside our rooms for some after ride socializing and rehydrating. We will generally head off as a group around 6 pm for dinner at one of the local restaurants.

      Caution note: there is a nasty left turn on both the medium (km 53.6) and long (km 86.6) routes. It's where you turn left off Appelby Line and cross over to Side Rd 2. The turn is on a bend and so there are visibility issues in both directions. Consider pulling over to the right side of the road and stopping so that you can look carefully in both directions before crossing over (the "Safer Left Turn").

      A ride from Campbellville past Waterdown, with lunch at the Lowville Golf Club (website). The Lowville Golf Club is on Britannia Road on the right, one driveway past Conservation Halton and 400 metres before the church at Guelph Line where we used to turn left to descend down into Lowville. The Club has sandwiches or full meals. The long route may also wish to stop at the Carlisle Golf Club (website).

      Meet for a 9 am departure from the New Ball Park in Campbellville. The entrance is off Reid Road just after crossing over the 401.

      For the last three years, the Wednesday Wheelies have left the "safety" of our Toronto area countryside and headed up to Collingwood for three days of great riding and socializing. In 2020 we'll be heading back to Collingwood in both the spring and in the fall. Our fall outing will be on 
      Tuesday September 29, Wednesday September 30 and Thursday October 1. 

      The event is a Wednesday Wheelies event. However, we will be delighted if other members of the TBN join us.



      The Routes
      The routes are all available on RWGPS. If you would like to see an interactive RWGPS consolidated map of all of them, click here, and then click on the button at the bottom left titled "Show all on map". There is also an image of the consolidated map at the bottom of this web page.

          • An alternative route for anyone interested in staying off the roads is the Clearview Trail which goes along an abandoned rail corridor. It heads south east out of Collingwood into the countryside towards Stayner. To see the route, click here and then click on the Clearview Trail box on the right. The route is 14 km from end to end, although you can turn around at any point. The route is suitable for road bikes.
        • After Thursday's rides, we will head home.

        Accommodation You are on your own in finding accommodation. Because the event is a midweek event before the start of the school summer holidays, our understanding is that you should not have any difficulty in finding accommodation and that the prices should be reasonable. 

        Although we will not have a headquarters hotel for the event, we have done a little bit of digging around for options. The Luxury Inn, Comfort Inn and Days Inn are all centrally located, modern and reasonably priced. The Luxury Inn will likely be the cheapest. With luck, you may be able to get mid week, pre season pricing at the other options. The Milestone Motel is an old style drive up. It may be a little cheaper yet. It's well located and has very good reviews.

        Everything is Optional If you choose to participate in the event, it will be totally optional as to whether you ride all three days, and attend all the social functions. If you wish to have a non-riding partner join you, terrific. And if you wish to play golf or participate in some other activity, no problem. Our big picture goal is simply to have an out-of-town cycling meet-up in June in a lovely location where there will also be opportunities for socializing.

        Registration If you think you will likely participate in “The Wednesday Wheelies Go to Collingwood”, please click on the button at the left and register as soon as possible (including for your partner, if applicable). If you change your mind at any time, not an issue. Just let us know at wedwheelie@tbn.ca and we'll delete your registration.

        Caution notes: please ride single file on the paved shoulder on Aurora Rd between McCowan Rd and Highway 48. Please also take extra care as you go south on Highway 48, and then turn left/east across Highway 48 onto Lakeshore Rd.

        Time to get ready for winter. This will be the last official ride of the season. The  ride will start at 10 am from the Victoria Square Community Centre, just east of the 404 on Elgin Mills Road.

        The maps and cue sheets indicate that the designated lunch stops for the rides are at two golf clubs. However, the golf clubs are unlikely to be open at this time of year. Thus, we suggest you stop in either the Musselman Lake area (the short route) or Mt. Albert (the medium and long routes), or you can bring a lunch or snack with you.

        Register

        This will be our last get together before the long coffee break of the Canadian winter. We'll meet at the “Marché Restaurant” in Brookfield Place (formerly BCE Place) on Yonge Street just north of Front Street at 9:30 AM. Please register at your earliest convenience. We need to get a reasonable fix on numbers in order for the restaurant to set aside an appropriately sized room for us. Please also feel free to register your partner for the event.

        As in the past, this event is a brunch. The idea is to get in and out of the restaurant before the crush and chaos of the lunch hour. Socializing and coffee drinking will start at 9:30 am. As we feel hungry we will head off to the various stations to pick up food. Because we will be in and out of the restaurant before the lunch hour, the restaurant will be able to give us a private room.

        To register, simply click on the "Register" box in the blue area to the left and follow the instructions. Need to cancel for whatever reason? No problem. Just email us at wedwheelie@tbn.ca.

        Some other text with Shift-Return results in an HTML <br> tag. As the paragraph gets larger, Wild Apricot will fill in the text to fill the size of the "browser", large on a full screen on a computer, but result in wrapping of text within the paragraph. After the Shift-Return,(and the forced <br> tag)
