SUNDAY CYCLING ROUTES EXPLORING THE BEAUTIFUL ONTARIO COUNTRYSIDE FROM NIAGARA WINE COUNTRY
TO NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY
Join us to cycle on paved rural “roads less traveled”. There are two, often three, choices of routes and distances. These are tourist class rides typically in the range of 60, 75, or 90+ kms. You should be comfortable riding in a small group or occasionally on your own. Speeds are typically 20 to 26 km/hr, and groups of riders might choose to occasionally regroup or not. The ride leader usually rides the long distance route (if there are 2 route options) or medium distance route (if there are 3 route options) and there are no sweeps.
START TIMES FOR 2020 will be:
April 05 - June 28: 10:00 am
July 05 - August 30: 9:00 am to beat the summer heat
Sept. 05 - October 18: - 10:00 am
Please check this web-page regularly to plan your rides. Any cancellations or changes to the schedule will be noted in the "Upcoming Events" section at least 18 hrs. in advance of the ride.
NEED TO KNOW:
You must wear a helmet to join any TBN ride, and you must be ready to show your TBN membership card to the ride leader. If you are not a member, you will be asked to sign a waiver and pay a $5 non-member fee – if possible, you should register and pay online in advance – follow the link on the event page for each Sunday’s ride.
Starting this year, Country Cruise ride leaders will no longer bring paper maps and cue sheets for riders. Please print and bring your own. You can also download the route to your smartphone or GPS device.
