This ride might be a longshot, but who knows - nature might give us one more Sunday with decent cycling weather. If so, its one more chance to stop at one of the ride leader's favorite cafes. A 69-km variant (on 16th side road from Dufferin to Jane) and a 59-km variant (on 15th side road from Dufferin to Keele) are possible, and might permit a ride if rain is forecast but not until after a shortened ride.
If you register and then decide not to come, please cancel your reservation no less than 3 hours before the start time so that the trip leader can judge the degree of interest. The ride will be cancelled between 2-3 hours before the start time if there are fewer than 5 participants, or if the weather forecast is unfavourable.
A ride through suburban side streets and country roads to Kettleby, then heading back via King City (lunch at Roost Cafe pictured above).
Meet north of Finch Subway Station at "Finch" west parking lot on the north side of Hendon Ave, just west of Yonge St. Note the 10 AM start, as the early mornings can now be quite cold.
N.B. If you are travelling north on Yonge St, keep going past Finch Ave and turn left onto Hendon Ave. The parking lot is on the right near 18 Hendon Ave, North York.
At this time, we are not accepting Guest rider registration.
If you have not registered for the ride, you may NOT join the ride.
