This week we will depart from the Yarker Cat Trail Parking Lot (38 Sidings Street) at 0930hrs and ride west to the trail’s end at Strathcona (km100 of the trail). On return we will stop at Abrams Bakery in Newburgh for a coffee/ice cream. Total distance will be 28km.      A leisurely weekly ride of 20 to 30km (group consensus) with a coffee/ice cream break in the middle. This ride is ideal for those new to cycling or those getting back in the saddle after a few years away. All rides will be on either on the K&P or Cataraqui Trail. We will never ride on the road. Pace will be 10 to 15 km/hour and each week we will depart from a different trail parking lot. Junior participants are warmly welcomed and encouraged to ride along. See you then!
