    • Col. Sam Smith Skating Trail

    Hello Ice Skaters,

    We are skating at Col. Sam Smith Skating Trail this evening. It is located south of Bloor St. and the end of Kipling St. at the lake. The skating trail and parking lot are on the east side of the road. By TTC, take subway to Kipling station and then take the Kipling bus 44 south of Bloor St. (ask the bus driver for the bus going south of Bloor St.) We will head out for dinner after skating. Rides to dinner will be arranged.


    Host for this evening is Fred Lee.

    For first timers to Friday evening ice skating, a TBN membership is not required. We skate on public rinks. Admission is free to almost all rinks. A few rinks have skate rentals. We skate for about one and half hours and then head to a restaurant near by for dinner.

    • Tim Hortons, 2245 Yonge St

    For Sunday, January 20, the weather forecast is indicating 5 to 10 cm of snow the previous day, and on Sunday, cold temperatures (-18C to -16C), 30 Km/h NW winds, with gusts to 45 Km/h. Please check the website after 8 AM on Sunday, just in case this walk is cancelled.

    Due to this potentially nasty weather, I plan on walking in a mostly southerly direction, in locations where buildings should provide some protection, and will stay close to subway stations to make it easy to leave early. I also plan on having a few breaks at indoor locations where we can warm up.

    Meet at 10 AM at the Tim Hortons at 2245 Yonge St, on the east side of Yonge just south of Eglinton, near the Eglinton subway station. We will walk mostly down Yonge, then Bloor towards Spadina, and ending in Chinatown, a distance of about 8 Km. We can end there, getting on a Spadina streetcar, or walk to St Patrick station (8.7 Km), or Dundas station (9.4 Km).

    The planned route is available on Ride With GPS at: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29191158

    The approximate distances to early exits and break locations are:

    0.0 Km - Eglinton Station

    1.4 Km - Davisville Station (early exit)

    2.5 Km - Tim Hortons, 1521 Yonge (coffee/bathroom break)

    2.6 Km - St Clair Station (early exit)

    3.4 Km - Summerhill Station (early exit)

    4.0 Km - Rosedale Station (early exit)

    4.8 Km - Bloor/Yonge (break & early exit)

    6.0 Km - St George Station (early exit)

    6.6 Km - Sid Smith Hall (bathroom break)

    8.0 Km - Dundas & Spadina (lunch stop & exit to Spadina streetcars)

    8.7 Km - St Patrick Station (exit to Spadina Subway Line)

    9.4 Km - Dundas Station (exit to Yonge Subway Line)

    There is currently a scheduled subway "late opening" from Osgoode to Bloor-Yonge, in case that affects your travel plans, but please check https://www.ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Subway_closures/index.jsp for any changes.

    Non-members are welcome. This is an official TBN event, so they will be asked to sign the waiver form, but, like all winter walks, will not be charged the non-member fee.

    If you have trouble finding us at the start, please call me on my cell at 416-917-8866. If I don't answer, try again, as I may miss the first call.

    • Hornell, New York, USA
    Register



    In each of the last two years, a group of Wednesday Wheelie types have headed down to Hornell for some cycling in the northern Allegheny Highlands (click here for Wikipedia article). The Highlands are part of the vast Appalachian Mountain Range of the Eastern United States and Canada. In less technological times they posed a significant barrier to land travel in eastern North America.  In our era, they are a hidden cycling gem - great scenery, terrific roads and, best of all, lots of challenging hills. We are therefore now scheduling two Hornell outings for 2019 - once in the spring and again in the fall. The spring outing will be from Tuesday May 14 to Thursday May 16. If you think you might be interested in joining the Wednesday Wheelie Hornell peloton for this outing, please read on. In 2018 some of our friends from the Niagara Freewheeler also joined us. We hope that some of them will be back with us in 2019, and perhaps also a few friends from elsewhere.

    Accommodation We will be staying in the Econo Lodge (website) in North Hornell which is a short distance south west of the Finger Lakes. Please call the hotel directly at 607-324-0800 to make your reservation. Tell them that you are part of the Wednesday Wheelies group and ask them to put you in the "New Building". It's a separate structure of 18 large rooms, all of which are non-smoking. If you run into any confusion trying to make your booking, we suggest you call back when Eric is on duty. There are also about 50 additional rooms in the other buildings. You can expect to pay around $60 per night, including breakfast. Don't try and use one of the many of the online booking options as you may actually pay more, and you probably won't be able to ask to be put in the New Building. We suggest you drive down on the Monday evening and stay through until the Thursday morning. However, if you want to come for either a shorter or longer stay, no problem. 

    The Scenery As mentioned above, the region is very hilly, and so not for the faint of heart (sorry). You may wish to consider using a granny gear bike. There are some really long beautiful remote stretches on all of the routes. It will be impossible to avoid enjoying the scenery, even when you are climbing! You may even decide that the scenery is spectacular. Be sure to bring along some sort of camera device.


    The Rides We've plotted hilly rides for the first two days. On the third day, there will two around a lake options - one flat and the other hilly. Click here to see RWGPS plots of the rides (click on the "Show all on map" button in order to see the big picture). The RWGPS link includes some other options for anyone choosing to stay longer than three days. As the event approaches, we will refine parking lot information, refreshment stops and other details, and some nits will be fixed. Start times for the rides will tentatively be 9:30. There will be a short drive to the start locations on the first two days, and a slightly longer drive to the start location for the rides around the lake on the third day. 



    After Ride Socializing and Dinner Each day after the ride, we will meet in the parking lot outside our rooms for some after ride socializing and rehydrating. We will generally head off as a group around 6 pm for dinner at one of the local restaurants. 

    Flexibility Since we all be staying in the same hotel and will likely be a fairly small group, we will have the flexibility to change details to suit the circumstances (e.g., start times or restaurant details).

    Weather and Cancelling Your Hotel Reservation Click here to check out the weather forecast for Hornell (this page also includes also includes links to 14 day and 7 day forecasts). If the weather looks like it will be really lousy, you will be able to cancel your hotel reservation without penalty up to 11 am on the day before your scheduled arrival. If we have one bad day of weather, Corning is a very touristy town about an hour away that's worth a visit. Of particular interest is the Corning Glass Museum (website) where you can learn all about glass making and how Corning developed Pyrex, Corelle, fiber optic cable, gorilla glass and other game changing technical glass products. Another bad weather day option would be a visit to Ithaca and Cornell University.


    Driving For driving directions, click here. Google Maps estimates the driving time to be 3.5 hours in good conditions. Of course, there is the border and possible traffic delays. Hence, we recommend that you drive down on the Monday evening. In order to avoid roaming charges on your phone, you may wish to download the Google Maps sections for the area before leaving home. This will allow you to put your phone in airplane mode after crossing the the border. In addition to using Google Maps to get to the hotel, you will also find it useful for finding parking lots, restaurants, etc.

    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.

    Suggestions or Questions If you have any suggestions for changes or refinements to the proposed program, we will be very happy to hear them. Also, if you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact us.

    • Collingwood
    Register



    In 2017 and 2018 the Wednesday Wheelies left the "safety" of our Toronto area countryside and headed up to Collingwood for three days great riding and socializing. In 2019 we'll be heading back to Collingwood on 
    Tuesday June 12, Wednesday June 13 and Thursday June 14.

    Collingwood has some great hills with fantastic road surfaces (click here for some examples), and so there will definitely be some hill climbing during this event. However, there are also some trail riding options for the less vertically inclined. In addition, Collingwood has a terrific selection of hotels, restaurants, shops and other facilities. We'll take advantage of some of these amenities during our visit.

    We realize that a multi-day midweek event is difficult for the working members of our group (sorry). However, we hope that the event will be sufficiently attractive that at least some of the working members will be enticed to make the event part of their annual holidays.

    The event is a Wednesday Wheelies event. However, we will be delighted if other members of the TBN join us. As the time of the event approaches, the details below (e.g., routes, restaurants, etc.) will be refined and finalized.



    The Routes
    All the routes are available on RWGPS. If you would like to see a consolidated map of all of them on RWGPS, click here, and then click on the button at the bottom left titled "Show all on map".

    • After socializing (say around 6:30 PM) we suggest you head off to dinner in groups to one of the following restaurant options (or if you want you can just stay at Kelsey's):
      • The Northwinds Brewhouse and Kitchen. Check out the following link for a description of the great food offerings and the numerous beers brewed on site (link). The Northwinds is ranked number 1 in Collingwood restaurants on tripadvisor (tripadvisor reviews).

      • RWGPS and PDF links:  click here
      • An alternative route for anyone interested in staying off the roads is the Clearview Trail which goes along an abandoned rail corridor. It heads south east out of Collingwood into the countryside towards Stayner. To see the route, click here and then click on the Clearview Trail box on the right. The route is 14 km from end to end, although you can turn around at any point. The route is suitable for road bikes.
    • After Thursday's rides, we will head home.

    Accommodation You are on your own in finding accommodation. Because the event is a midweek event before the start of the school summer holidays, our understanding is that you should not have any difficulty in finding accommodation and that the prices should be reasonable. The choices in Collingwood range from backpacker dormitories to five star luxury hotels. And of course some people may be lucky enough to be able to stay with family or friends who have a property in the area.

    Although we will not have a headquarters hotel for the event, we have done a little bit of digging around for options. The Luxury Inn, Comfort Inn and Days Inn are all centrally located, modern and reasonably priced. The Luxury Inn will likely be the cheapest. With luck, you may be able to get mid week, pre season pricing at the other options. The Milestone Motel is an old style drive up. It may be a little cheaper yet. It's well located and has very good reviews.

    Everything is Optional If you choose to participate in the event, it will be totally optional as to whether you ride all three days, and attend all the social functions. If you wish to have a non-riding partner join you, terrific. And if you wish to play golf or participate in some other activity, no problem. Our big picture goal is simply to have an out-of-town cycling meet-up in June in a lovely location where there will also be opportunities for socializing.

    Registration If you think you will likely participate in “The Wednesday Wheelies Go to Collingwood”, please click on the button at the left and register as soon as possible (including for your partner, if applicable). If you change your mind at any time, not an issue. Just let us know at wedwheelie@tbn.ca and we'll delete your registration. And if at any time you have an idea for enhancing the fun factor of the event, please let us know. We want to make the event a highlight of your 2019 cycling season!

    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.

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.

    • Hornell, New York, USA
    Register



    Our fall outing to Hornell will from Tuesday 10 to Thursday September 12. Hornell is in the northern Allegheny Highlands (click here for Wikipedia article). The Highlands are part of the vast Appalachian Mountain Range of the Eastern United States and Canada. In less technological times they posed a significant barrier to land travel in eastern North America.  In our era, they are a hidden cycling gem - great scenery, terrific roads and, best of all, lots of challenging hills. 

    Accommodation We will be staying in the Econo Lodge (website) in North Hornell which is a short distance south west of the Finger Lakes. Please call the hotel directly at 607-324-0800 to make your reservation. Tell them that you are part of the Wednesday Wheelies group and ask them to put you in the "New Building". It's a separate structure of 18 large rooms, all of which are non-smoking. If you run into any confusion trying to make your booking, we suggest you call back when Eric is on duty. There are also about 50 additional rooms in the other buildings. You can expect to pay around $60 per night, including breakfast. Don't try and use one of the many of the online booking options as you may actually pay more, and you probably won't be able to ask to be put in the New Building. We suggest you drive down on the Monday evening and stay through until the Thursday morning. However, if you want to come for either a shorter or longer stay, no problem. 

    The Scenery As mentioned above, the region is very hilly, and so not for the faint of heart (sorry). You may wish to consider using a granny gear bike. There are some really long beautiful remote stretches on all of the routes. It will be impossible to avoid enjoying the scenery, even when you are climbing! You may even decide that the scenery is spectacular. Be sure to bring along some sort of camera device.


    The Rides We've plotted hilly rides for the first two days. On the third day, there will two around a lake options - one flat and the other hilly. Click here to see RWGPS plots of the rides (click on the "Show all on map" button in order to see the big picture). The RWGPS link includes some other options for anyone choosing to stay longer than three days. As the event approaches, we will refine parking lot information, refreshment stops and other details, and some nits will be fixed. Start times for the rides will tentatively be 9:30. There will be a short drive to the start locations on the first two days, and a slightly longer drive to the start location for the rides around the lake on the third day. 

    The Highlander Perhaps the routes we have plotted won't be enough for you. For the truly inclined at heart, click here to read about the Highlander. It's a charity ride of 163 km with more than 2600 metres of climbing! It takes place on the weekend following our event. There will likely be a number of our cycling friends from the Niagara Freewheelers participating. It's a terrific event definitely worth considering. 



    After Ride Socializing and Dinner Each day after the ride, we will meet in the parking lot outside our rooms for some after ride socializing and rehydrating. We will generally head off as a group around 6 pm for dinner at one of the local restaurants. 

    Flexibility Since we all be staying in the same hotel and will likely be a fairly small group, we will have the flexibility to change details to suit the circumstances (e.g., start times or restaurant details).

    Weather and Cancelling Your Hotel Reservation Click here to check out the weather forecast for Hornell (this page also includes also includes links to 14 day and 7 day forecasts). If the weather looks like it will be really lousy, you will be able to cancel your hotel reservation without penalty up to 11 am on the day before your scheduled arrival. If we have one bad day of weather, Corning is a very touristy town about an hour away that's worth a visit. Of particular interest is the Corning Glass Museum (website) where you can learn all about glass making and how Corning developed Pyrex, Corelle, fiber optic cable, gorilla glass and other game changing technical glass products. Another bad weather day option would be a visit to Ithaca and Cornell University.


    Driving For driving directions, click here. Google Maps estimates the driving time to be 3.5 hours in good conditions. Of course, there is the border and possible traffic delays. Hence, we recommend that you drive down on the Monday evening. In order to avoid roaming charges on your phone, you may wish to download the Google Maps sections for the area before leaving home. This will allow you to put your phone in airplane mode after crossing the the border. In addition to using Google Maps to get to the hotel, you will also find it useful for finding parking lots, restaurants, etc.

    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.

    Suggestions or Questions If you have any suggestions for changes or refinements to the proposed program, we will be very happy to hear them. Also, if you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact us.

    • Marche Restaurant, Brookfield Place, Yonge St
    Register

    This will be our last get together before the long coffee break of the Canadian winter. We'll at the “Marché Restaurant” in Brookfield Place (formerly BCE Place) on Yonge Street just north of Front at 9:30 AM. Please register at your earliest convenience. We need to get a reasonable fix on numbers in order for the restaurant to set aside the appropriately sized room for us. Please also feel free to register your partner for the event.

    We are again structuring the event as a brunch. The idea is to get in and out of the restaurant before the crush and chaos of the lunch hour. Socializing and coffee drinking will start at 9:30 AM. As we feel hungry we will head off to the various stations to pick up food. Because we will be in and out of the restaurant before the lunch hour, the restaurant will be able to give us a private room.

    To register, simply click on the "Register" box in the blue area to the left and follow the instructions. Problem with online registration? Send an e-mail to wedwheelie@tbn.ca and say you are coming. Need to cancel for whatever reason? No problem. Again, just email us at wedwheelie@tbn.ca.
