Weekend Rides

Snow hasn’t hit the ground here yet, so let’s keep riding! And I’m putting a special Long Weekend Monday ride on the schedule too – weather permitting of course. Watch for club Twitter updates if anything gets cancelled.

The Saturday ride starts from near the Servus Credit Union in the Harvest Pointe shopping complex. Leaving 11am, it heads east, looping to Cooking Lake and passing by the Olympiette Centre on the way back. About two hours and just over 60kms. Please be careful crossing Highway 21 and 14.

The Sunday ride starts west of town, 11am at the Acheson PetroCan/Truck Stop area. Suggested 70km hilly Strava Route posted HERE: https://www.strava.com/routes/19516571

The Monday ride starts east of the city, 11am at the Ardrossan Rec Centre for a loop around the old Velocity Stage Race course. 66km Strava Route posted HERE: https://www.strava.com/routes/13143060

It’s the lack of faith that makes people afraid of challenges. If you don’t believe in yourself, who will?
