BAKERY RIDE, Saturday, June 1, 2018
Edmonton is blessed with an abundance of traditional and ethnic bakeries, and we will enjoy a few. We will be exploring the NE part of Edmonton, so we’ll meet on the north side of town. I’ll pick up some donuts to go along with your mid morning (or early morning for some) cup of coffee. There is a Second Cup just across the parking lot. We will be leaving at 10:00 am SHARP, so arrive earlier if you plan on a morning snack, say 9:30.
We will be meeting at the office building where I sometimes work, so there is lots of parking. It is the black 5 story twin towers at 14310 – 111 Ave. It is just west of the Space Science Centre, across 142 St. We’ll park on the east side of the building.
We will be riding on city streets, and bike paths where convenient. The group should stay together for safety and to be sure nobody gets lost, so will likely be a slow rather than fast pace. We’ll ask someone to act as a sweep to help keep us together. Oh, remember to bring a pannier or two , or a backpack to take some home some pita and goodies to enjoy at your leisure.
We will stop for lunch likely about 12:30 to feast on baked pita, and then continue our quest for more decedent pastries. Even if you are on a diet, come out and enjoy a day of exercise on your bike. We will likely be back to the start point at 2:30 to 3:00.
