Ladies Road Ride Cancelled Today

Hey folks!

Ladies road ride is cancelled today due to weather. Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!  See you next Monday!
Mark your calendars for May 28th 10am-4pm we will have some fabulous group ladies mountain bike rides starting at 2PM for the Sault Cycling Club Trail Festival at Hiawatha. Come join us for a day of bikes, food, music and local beer!

Adventure Ride #2 – The Sequel

IMG_5035 16_9

Monday June 12 – 6:30pm meet at Hiawatha parking lot by Soo Finnish building.

This month’s ride will be longer than AR#1 and feature more routes off the beaten track. Expect a mixture of double track, old logging roads, minor bush trails, beaver ponds and other natural impediments. This will be a casual, but challenging, group ride.

This ride is suitable for intermediate and advanced riders due to the distance (if you’re enthusiastic, you can do this!). The ride will be approximately 3 hours. Since I’m leading, you know there will be a photo gallery after the ride!

Bike Suggestions: Mountain bike or fat bike
Supplies: hydration and snacks, bug spray

Volunteers Needed

Hopefully, everyone has heard about the upcoming Hiawatha Trails Festival (an awesome day of bikes and biking for everyone).  The Festival is May 28 from 10am-4pm.  We need volunteers to help make the day a success and showcase the club and the trails.  Tasks include set up and tear down of tents and tables, ride leaders and sweepers, bike washers, mechanics (for basic bike checks, tire pressure and bike fit adjustments), ticket sales and BBQ meisters.

Message me on Facebook to get added to the volunteer list and for more information.



Road Ride Route – May 17, 2017

We’re going to swap the May 17 and May 24 plans since I’m travelling and don’t have sufficient time to plan a fun sprint/regroup route for tomorrow.  That means this week, it’s hills!

Reminder: Rides are now starting at Aweres School in Heyden.  Map: Google.

We may have a rainy night, so individuals will decide how many repeats to do.

A group: This will involve two loops (one for those who dissolve in the rain) down Hwy 552, across and up Bellevue Valley Rd, up Hwy 556.  Map: Google.  This was intended to be a drop ride, but given the weather, the group may decide otherwise by consensus.

B group: This will follow one pass around the loop that the A group is doing, and optionally (Hopefully!  Depending on weather, though) another pass down the Hwy 552 hill and back up the way we came.  The B group will be no-drop, but riders should feel encouraged to hammer the three main hills and wait or soft-pedal at the top for the group to catch up.  I’ll be coming off a long drive following a hard race, so I’ll be joining the B group again this week.

C group: If we have C group riders brave enough to ride in the wet, this group will do two to three laps of the Hwy 552 hill depending on pace of those who come out so as to arrange a finish time similar to the A and B groups.  The C group is always a no-drop ride.
