Ride the Valley on Saturday, September 9 at Valley East Days!
A full day of riding in the Valley area with 3 rides starting at 10 am, noon, and 2 pm. Do one, or two or all three! We’ve done these rides before on our Thursday evening rides and they were designed by our rider leader Phil who lives in the Valley and knows all of the great spots to tour. But Phil might just throw in a few little tweaks this year.
We’re starting from the festival grounds at the Hanmer Shopping Center. Meet at the corner of Elmview and St. Anthony and look for the Bike Sudbury flag. Our ride leaders will be there starting at 9:30 am to set up and get the waivers signed. We’ll have a bike pump too but can’t do any bike repairs, so make sure your bike is road ready.
We’ll have some water and snacks, but suggest you also bring your own.
RIDE #1 – 10 am
A 30.7 k ride to Capreol and back – all road riding except we’ll ride the new trail along the waterfront that is really worth seeing. Tour the historical downtown, ride by the Capreol Railroad Museum and the BNCC cricket ground – the only official cricket field in the city.
RIDE #2 – 12 noon
A 23.6 km ride that tours Val Thérèse and Val Caron, and then the rural areas including some farmland to the west of the Valley along Martin Road. All road riding.
RIDE #3 – 2 pm
A 24.5 km ride that tours through Hanmer, Val Caron and Val Thérèse with a mix of urban and rural views. All road riding. And a stop at beautiful Kalmo Beach on Whitson Lake – bring your swim suit for a quick swim!
