We will be departing the Crimson Ridge parking lot at 6:30 pm and head Westbound on Fourth Line until it curves into Allens Side.  Continue South to Third Line and continue to the Carpin Beach Road Junction.  Turn North on Carpin Beach and then left back onto Third Line (I know its a very weird intersection…but you should all be familiar with it by now).  Continue West on Third until it curves downhill to Townline.  Continue South on Town Line to Second Line and then ride an out and back out to Gros Cap.  Turnaround and come back the same way.

Depending on the numbers I will split groups up accordingly.  We will keep things civilized on this first night.  Faster Groups should be ride a sociable tempo (let’s say 30-32ish) and slower folks in the 25-28 range.  The goal is to re-acquaint ourselves with our carbon and/or steel and/or titanium and/or aluminum steeds.

The fine folks at Crimson will accomodate us with good food and drink apres ride.


First Thursday Night Road Ride of 2016 is set for April 7th.  Our rides will Rendezvous at Crimson Ridge Golf Course for 6:30 departure.  Course description will be posted prior to the ride.

As per the related news item, you must have your SCC membership before the ride.  We will not be accepting membership forms and payments at the ride so if you intend on riding please get your membership at our participating bike shops.  You will not be permitted to ride among the Club without your membership.

We have worked out an exciting new partnership with Crimson Ridge Golf Course and this will be our Rendezvous point.  After the ride we will have exclusive access to Tent Facility beside the club-house and a dedicated server for post ride food, beverages and socializing (same sort of arrangement they have with their weekly golf leagues but without the funny pants).

Our first ride will primarily be a moderately paced social ride.  I realize that has a different meaning for different people but for the Thursday crowd I’d say this would be a range between 27-33km/h.

After the ride I will outline my plans for the ride format for the season when we gather at Crimson.

If you intend to come or have any questions please send me an email at so I can give Crimson an estimate of the numbers.
