Ride Schedule

Here is our Ride Schedule for 2018. This is a general guideline for the rides. The details in the weekly email override anything detailed here. Base your plan on the email, not this summary as there are lots of reasons that this schedule might change.

Monday – MORNING
Lake & Royal York: 5:40 am
Kingsway & Twyford: 6:00 am
Route: Let’s Go To The Mall With Robin Sparkles. 42 km. Am I the only one who loves Robin Sparkles? Does anyone else even know who she is? Either way, it’s a fun ride, lots of high-speed pacelines, and solid group riding opportunities.

Tuesday – MORNING
Lake & Royal York: 5:40 am
Kingsway & Twyford: 6:00 am
Route: Morning Explorer 37.6 km. Group riding skills, a couple of Hammerfest stretches on the Explorer Loop. Otherwise quite social.

Please allow until 7:50 am for our return back to Sanremo. Add to that your time for coffee and fritters, and then a ride home. We don’t want anyone to get into trouble for being late, and we don’t need to take any risks riding fast on the route.
