Spectacular route, people, weather, and love the patio at the coffee shop in Sutton!  Wow to Christina, you rode really well, and Dan the man, nice sprint up Musslemans hill.

After you guys turned on Elgin Mills, Paul and I tuffed it out going south into the wind along 9th, thanks Paul for the pulls.   I think 9th is too rough and busy for a big group.  With the construction on durham 30 and ressors, it seems there is a lot more traffic on 9th.  Better to take 10th to 7 and cross over to 9th.  9th is 4 lanes south of 7 and smooth.  Or maybe go back to one of the older routes, Kennedy or Warden S.

Rest day today, we earned it.

 

I hope everyone got a rest when they got home, I did!

That was an awesome time. Thank you to everyone for coming out and providing such good company. I finally made it to Simcoe this year. Thanks for suggesting a long ride on such a perfect day, Dan. It was almost too nice out yesterday. I took in so much sun I'm looking a little like a lobster on the arms!

What Dan did on Ninth Line was something special. I'm not sharing another Clif bar with you if you're gonna go ahead and utterly obliterate me afterward. If you're about to bonk, maybe I'll have a fighting chance next time. :)

Alex, those north-east roads up through Ravenshoe, Mt. Pleasant, and Sutton were amazing. Great tarmac, scenery, and a nice change from the straight line riding of north-south and east-west roads.

Jeff, always a pleasure and definitely agree about Ninth Line north of 7. Oh, and I might have to don you the Zen master of BCC. :)

Peter, hope you were able to make it home alright from St. John's Sdrd.

Until next time indeed!
