The Routes
 This week's routes will start in nearby Odessa, and head north up into the farm country of Lennox & Addington County. The B, C and D routes will take a refreshments break in Yarker (see the picture below of the now crumbling old mill in Yarker), while the A route will stop at the always welcoming River Bakery Cafe in Tamworth. All of the routes will return past our local cheese factory in Wilton established in 1867!

Car Pooling Please consider!

Post Ride Refreshments We'll head into the friendly Jiffy Grill in Odessa for some post ride chatter and refreshments.
