    Caution note: there is a nasty left turn on both the medium (km 53.6) and long (km 86.6) routes. It's where you turn left off Appelby Line and cross over to Side Rd 2. The turn is on a bend and so there are visibility issues in both directions. Consider pulling over to the right side of the road and stopping so that you can look carefully in both directions before crossing over (the "Safer Left Turn").

    A 61, 78, or 108 km ride from Campbellville past Waterdown, with lunch at the Lowville Golf Club (website). The Lowville Golf Club is on Britannia Road on the right, one driveway past Conservation Halton and 400 metres before the church at Guelph Line where we used to turn left to descend down into Lowville.

We will even go in to see the control tower! The route has been revised a bit (again) this year to avoid the road construction that seems to sprout like mushrooms.  Lunch at the Wendy's under the end of the north runway.

    Want to explore some new riding areas in Ontario. On July 10 and 11, we are going ride out of Welland. On the Wednesday, we'll work our way down to and along the shores of Lake Erie. On the Thursday, we'll explore the Niagara Escarpment to the west of St. Catharines. If you are potentially interested, please read on.

    Accommodation We'll be staying at the Niagara College residence on the Wednesday evening. The rooms can accommodate two persons and are in pairs with shared washroom facilities. To book your room, call the college at 905-732-9700 and advise them that you are part of the Wednesday Wheelies. The cost per room (including for a second person in the room if applicable) should be around $85. The address of the residence is 110 Niagara College Boulevard, Welland, ON L3C 7L4.

    The Rides Each day there will be a short option and a long option. The Wednesday rides will start from the college at 11 am. The Thursday rides will start from the college at 9 am. To see the routes, click here. To see all the routes on a single map, click on the button titled "Show all on map". In the coming weeks, we'll be refining the route details and adding the short routes.

    After Ride Socializing and Dinner After the ride on Wednesday, we'll be heading to the Smokin' Bhudda in Port Colborne for some after ride summer socializing and dinner. The restaurant is in the old Port Colborne train station adjacent to the Welland Canal. To go to the restaurant website, click here. To read the Trip Advisor reviews, click here.

    Why Not Niagara Falls? We have intentionally avoided Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. The two towns and the roads in that area are quite busy and therefore less than optimal for cycling. 

    Driving Driving time to the Niagara College residence should generally be between 1.5 and 2 hours. For driving directions, click here.

    Registration If you think you are likely to join us, please click on the registration button on the left and register as soon as possible. If you change your mind at any point, not an issue. However, it will be very helpful to us if you register so that we have a reasonable sense of our likely numbers.

    • Parking lot east of Stouffville Arena -- access from Millard Street

    Beat the summer heat on a 64km adventure north from Stouffville, with a coffee stop at Annina’s Bakeshop (reviews) in Goodwood on the way back. 

    There is a 2km stretch of well-packed gravel at 32.8km, as you turn left onto Ashworth road. You can avoid that by heading further north to Zephyr Road, turning left there and then heading back along Concession 4. The detour adds 11km, and a few big hills.

    NEW START POINT

    Meet for an 8:30 am departure at the parking lot a block to the east of Stouffville Arena. To reach the lot turn north on 9th Line in Stouffville, and then right at the lights onto Millard Street. Turn right again at the first stop sign (this is technically Edward Street, but the only sign that's easy to spot is one for Bramble Crescent on your left). The lot is on your left. 

    Two things to note: 

    Bramble Crescent is a d-shaped road -- you will turn right at the east end of the crescent, which is the second time it intersects with Millard Street. 

    You can't reach the lot from the south by car from Main Street. You do need to approach it from Millard Street.

    Bonus: The parking lot is a short walk (or a very short ride) from the excellent Red Bulb coffee shop, which opens at 530am on weekdays, and makes a perfect pre- or post-ride stopping place. Walk south from the parking lot until you get to the coffee shop, which is on the intersection of Main Street and Edward Street.
