    This  delightful ride is postponed from last Sunday.  It starts at Aldershot Go station and follows quiet roads to the Royal Botanical Gardens. We then ride around Hamilton Harbour. After the harbour, there are approximately 10 kms through the centre of Hamilton to reach the east end of Hamilton and the entrance to Confederation Park and the Hamilton Beach Trail.  From that trail, we cross into Burlington and end at the Burlington Go.  This will be an all day ride, probably ending at 4:30 pm. (early supper afterward for those who wish).

    After the Ride: Join us at "The Express" restaurant (Italian Bistro with pizza, pasta, salads)   http://expressrestaurant.com/burlington/menu.html  on Lakeshore Rd. in Burlington before we go to the GO Station. It has a large patio but we will need to reserve. If you would like to join us at the restaurant, contact Sandra by 5:00 pm, Friday July 1st at: leisurewheeler@tbn.ca

    There are washrooms at Union Go and Aldershot Go.   At 18 km we can stop at "Grandad's Donuts" to buy a morning snack.

    STARTPlan to meet at the YORK concourse for the GO train at Union Station at: 8:30 am

    We will take the Niagara Excursion Train which leaves Union Station at: 8:51 am. It arrives at Aldershot at 9:39 am This special train is preferable because it has bike racks on the lower level of some cars. The return train from Burlington is not a special Niagara Excursion Train and will not have bike racks.
