NOTE THE ATYPICAL STARTING TIME
The route follows the new, wide, protected bicycle lanes on University Avenue, and the section of Lakeshore Blvd between Stadium Road and Windermere Avenue that is closed to traffic on Sundays, then switches to The Queensway and follows some long, straight sections to Oakville, many of which can be safely cycled at the Tourist B pace (24-28 km/yr).
There are two options in Oakville (marked on the route map): stopping at the Tim Horton's for the usual 30-45 minutes, or having a longer brunch at Dar Nabati (we should arrive just as the restaurant opens, at 12:00). The restaurant can accommodate 8 people outside, and a reservation has provisionally been made for 8 (there is also indoor dining). Please inform the ride leader if you would like to have brunch at Dar Nabati, who will let you know if there is a space for you outside.
The return ride follows, in part, a more meandering route.
PARKING: For those arriving at the starting point by car, there is Green P parking next to the Bedford St subway exit.
ALTERNATIVE STARTING POINT: Those who wish may join the group at the SE corner of Windermere and The Queensway, where we will briefly regroup. We will arrive no sooner than 10:00. There is Green P parking near Windermere and Lakeshore for those arriving by car, and there may still be places to park for free on Ellis Ave and perhaps elsewhere. If you wish to start at the alternative point, please inform the ride leader so that we look for you when regrouping (but we will not wait if you are not there).
If you have not registered for the ride, you may NOT join the ride.
