Slow as Molasses - Trail Ride
Tuesday, May 16, 2023, 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Registration is required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
The ride for Tues 16 May will depart from the K&P Parking lot on Unity Road. We will ride North to just past Harrowsmith and return, a distance of some 30 km. See you then! The rides are ideal for those new to cycling or have not ridden for a long time. The pace will be dependent on the skill level of the riders but can be expected to slightly quicken as the summer progresses.
Rides will take place on the K&P or Cataraqui Trail departing from various points. We will never ride on the road. Duration will be a group decision but should be around 90 minutes for the first few months with a coffee stop halfway.
The best bikes for these rides are the trail/mountain types with their bigger tires providing more traction. Road bikes while not ideal for this type of riding, are better than not coming out at all. E-Bikes are also welcome as long as riders adhere to the group's pace. Helmets are Mandatory!
Riders should be familiar with Ontario's Safe Cycling Guidelines ON Safe Cycling and bring the following items with them on the ride:
- a cell phone, preferably with the "what3words" app installed
- a copy of the ride route (printed or downloaded to a device of their choice)
- a spare tube, pump and repair kit
- sufficient hydration and nutrition
- health card
- document showing address and emergency contact information
Accompanied children are welcome and encouraged. The idea is just to get out and have a bit of exercise. The Slow as Molasses series is expected to start in late April.
