Saturday I rode from Kennedy station to Ashburn, a rogue ride with a few team members from the Friend’s for Life Bike Rally. We were originally slated to ride up to Belfountain (my favourite ride), but I was convinced to do a side ride. Needless to say that once the bike rally is finished I WILL be doing the Belfountain ride!!!
We set out from the station at 8am and made our way through the city and out into the beautiful countryside and the Rouge Valley. Aside from a few climbs, this route was relatively flat! Flat rides are not my ideal as I like the hills, but, with the heat on Saturday, I didn’t mind at all. We had a quick break at a small country store in Ashburn where everyone refueled!
I’d done this ride a few weeks back in gloomier conditions and actually quite enjoyed myself this time around and, more importantly, no injuries or wrong turns to report this week!
Next Saturday is the ride to Keswick. I’m looking forward to this ride as it’s the last of our training rides before departing for Montreal on the 25th.
