Ride Description: This ride is a classic! It is a 60km+ ride that takes you along cottage roads, provincial parks, a nasty highway, and a few surprises. We will be riding at a cruising pace which gives everyone a chance to chat (six feet apart) and enjoy the last days of summer. The route is about 40-60% on hard packed gravel or trails and there are not a lot of services en route. We will stop in Ma-Me-O Beach but the shop there was closed last time. As a result, please plan to pack sufficient fluids, a snack, etc. for the route. There are few tricky corners so generally we ride as a group. Those who want to add about 10 km are encouraged to play ‘beat-Frank’ on two designated sections. Please note, this is a non-supported ride in remote rural areas.
