Another nice turnout. A little slower average pace due to the big north wind, but good pulls on the front kept us moving.  We can overcome the wind, but still need to find a way to turn lights green! 

Fun descent as a group on Norfinch - fast - fast - fast. Love the big grin by Jamie at the bottom of Russell Hill-Boulton.  Topped off with fast down Rosedale Valley Rd and the sprint up River. 

Hope everyone had a good time, I know I did.

 

Any thoughts on the start point?  Would in front of the Princess Gates work better?

How about the route change to Norfinch?

Now that looks like a good route! I'll have to geto out on one of these Tuesday night rides... maybe next Tuesday!

I'd like to thank everyone for a great ride last night. My legs feel like bags of rock salt (in a good way).

Love the Norfinch downhill!

Awesome ride and turnout, thanks everyone! Nice pics, Jake. I'm trying to remember what Alex and I were talking about... looks kinda intense. That last pic did turn out quite well lighting-wise.
Meeting at the Princess Gate also has my vote.

For the route, I drafted something I felt might work but would like to hear some feedback because I don't know that area well and don't know how people feel about losing the Marlee sprint. I feel this avoids the on and off ramps of the Allen/401 a little bit. Anyway, here it is.

Might be worthwhile to just go straight over to Bathurst along Sheppard. There seems to be a lot of stop signs in the one posted above.

Comment by Paul McKeever on June 28, 2012 at 2:38pm
And keep the sprint we should. I had drafted something very similar but scrapped it fearing the Dufferin/401 interchange. I suppose we can try it next week. I doubt it‘s worse than Keele.

tonite (thursday) will be the test as to how much Tues actually beat me up!! awesome "recovery ride" after the 1/2 iron!!

Hey Alex and Paul,

I think this could be made simpler and still good

Turn right off Norfinch / Oakdale, onto Torbarrie (the turn is just before Sheppard.

Continue South on Torbarrie to Wilson

Wilson East to Dufferin

Dufferin S to first right south of 401

over To Caledonia

Caledonian to Castlefield

Castlefield to Chaplan

 

Looks okay!

Thanks, Jeff. Looks pretty good and is much simpler.
