Our annual spring kick-off ride will be happening in a few weeks and I can’t wait. In honour of Ontario’s ultra-boring Paris-to-Ancaster race we will be riding the alternative Not-Paris-to-Ancaster event (sometimes known as le Tour de Muffin).

The ride starts in Caledon East and follows the local rail trail West to Winston Churchill boulevard and then turns north for a long gradual climb up the escarpment. It then turns East through Belfontain and a wicked hair-pin decent past the Forks of the Credit river. A few Km further along it starts to zigzag South and East eventually returning to the rail trail for the last blast back to Caledon.

The total distance is around 50Km with the pace varying from easy to sprint-a-licious. However, nobody is ever left behind (apart from Dave and his flat tubeless tires). This year we are going to head over to the Hockley Valley Brewery for post ride refreshements.

The ride happens on Sunday, April 22 at 10:00am sharp! Meet at the (former) Lil’ Miss Muffins roadside coffee shop adjacent to the rail trail in Caledon East.
