Summer Solstice Bikepacking Adventure, June 21st

Come out for a short overnighter on Friday June 21, and celebrate the Summer Solstice. This ride is 50km (100km total) of gravel with some pavement. This is a self-supported tour (bring your own food and shelter); if you need gear let us know and we’ll help you out. 

We’re meeting at 785 Highway 17 North around 5:30pm, and will be departing at 6:00pm. We will be back early Saturday afternoon. 

Please feel free to ask any questions. 

Hope to see you there.

Summer Solstice Ride

The Sault Cycling Club would like to announce the “Summer Solstice Weekend Ride”, June 22-23. This overnight ride will be on mostly backcountry and gravel roads, with a little bit of pavement.  

Further ride details will be released shortly, circle this date on your calendar fellow riders!

First Gravel Ride of 2019 – Monday Apr 29

I will be hosting two gravel rides each month through this season. These will be no-drop social rides because they can tend to get pretty exploratory sometimes.

For each ride, I’ll publish a rough outline of where we’re headed, but we may well decide “hey, that looks interesting over there!” so bring your sense of adventure. Also, bring lights. You never know how long we’ll be out!

A gravel or cyclocross bike is advised, but we’re an inviting crowd. If you can keep up on a mountain bike or have the handling skills to tackle our planned route on a road bike, then come on out and have fun with us!

Be sure to purchase your membership before the ride. I will not be accepting cash or cheques at the start location this year since we can now purchase memberships online as well as in any of the bike shops.

This week, we’ll start at 6:45pm at the R.M. Moore school at the corner of Base Line and Carpin Beach Rd where we’ll head up to explore Creek Rd (and hopefully make it as far as the beaver pond) before turning around and doing the same on Prince Lake Rd. If time allows, I’d love to check out Marshall Dr as well.
