Hello Folks: Michel and Louis are co-hosting a group ride and pot luck from Newcastle on Sunday Aug 19th. This is a good chance to come and ride some new roads to the west.
Three routes will be available. We will all ride together for the first 12 kms along two nice bike paths. The first around the Port of Newcastle and the second behind Wilmot Creek.
Then the faster group will ride away to the hills to the north on a 96 kms route finishing with a ride along the lakeshore. We will do the famous Starkville Hill among others.
The medium group will do 57 kms. finishing with the same ride along the lakeshore. It will be a much flatter ride though with only gentle rollers except the only hill of note will be Starkville from the back side (much easier) with a great view from the top. This way you get to see famous Starkville and ride down it.
For those who want a shorter ride and completely flat there is a 40 kms option with a shorter ride along the lakeshore. There will be maps available for this ride.
Start time is 10:00 AM. Pot luck to follow. Bring whatever you wish, there is an oven available if needed to warm things.
The address is 24 Milligan St. , Newcastle, which is the first right when you come into the Port of Newcastle. Exit the 401 at Mill St. and come south, straight at the stop sign, and then into the Port of Newcastle subdivision.
See you all then.
