    TBN Kick-off - Short Urban Roller


    A shorter Urban Roller paced ride for those who may need to get back a bit quicker than the Humber College ride will allow. This ride will follow the same route as the Humber College ride, but will split off from that group shortly after we cross Weston Road and the railroad tracks, at Gary and Oak. If you find yourself going through the parking garage, you've gone too far. We'll take a short tour through Weston, then return on the trail from Eglinton and Scarlett Road.

    We will leave after the breakfast events, say 10:30ish.

    Non members can ride for free, but need to sign the waiver form. All participants are required to wear a helmet.
