Hi everyone,

Paul and I have had a few discussions about this.  As per his original post in this group, the official BCC Hillicious rides will take place on Thursday mornings.  Because a number of riders have requested a Thursday evening option (change is very hard for some of us!), I plan to post a regular informal ride on Thursday evenings, starting sometime in late April/early May.

Please click on the above link to inform yourself of the limitations of an informal ride.  They are NOT club rides, and are NOT covered by the insurance pollicy provided to all OCA-clubs and OCA club affiliated events.

Hi Peter et al
If Brimley is too crowded now on Thursday evenings, why not try out Lawrence and some of the Don hills? I'm sure there's a good route to find that can incorporate Lawrence,the Bridle Loop, and that obscenely steep climb from Sauriol up to Wynford.

^^^ that is a very good idea :)

Redway Road is also a good one, and not a lot of traffic I believe once you're down there.  Might be another option.

Alternate routes keep things interesting!  Thanks.

I personally don't have any issue with traffic on Brimley (it helps that I commute to work by bicycle, so I am used to riding in heavy traffic), so I am planning on featuring the "classic" Brimley ride at least every second week.

Thanks for keeping an evening alternative road ride open, Peter. BCC is awesome because we nail group assembly.

Having a few options is excellent, thanks for the organizing gents!
