Eager April Tuesday Road Ride (April)

We're kick-starting our outdoor riding season by heading out each Tuesday in April, rain or shine, with whoever shows up. There will just be one group, going at a moderate pace (sportif) for about an hour of riding. Roll up to the shop ready to ride at 5:00 p.m. and one of us will ride with you.
Cancellation Policy: We plan to ride regardless of weather conditions, until it becomes a safety concern like in the event of a blizzard, thunderstorm, or torrential rain.
Tuesday Road Group Ride (May to August)
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Parry Sound Bikes
The Tuesday Night Road Ride has been going since Parry Sound Bikes opened in 2013. Every year it grows, but the intent remains the same: to get a group of people together for a social ride on some of the best roads in the area.
Cancellation Policy: The ride may be postponed due to inclement or forecasted inclement weather. We will decide at 3pm the day of the ride whether it is postponed to the next day (Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.). If the ride is postponed, we will post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. In the event of inclement weather on Wednesday, the ride will be cancelled for the week.
Prologue Group: 20-25km route at under 25km/hour
This is a no drop group open to all cyclists on road, gravel, or hybrid bikes (including e-bikes). There will be lots of re-grouping and some instruction through out the ride.
Sportif Group: 35-45km route at 25-30km/hour (often 2 groups: 25km/hour and 28/hour)
This is a “re-group” ride, where we will re-group at major intersections and turns. Recommended for riders on road or gravel bikes (including e-bikes). The focus of the ride will be on covering kilometers with group riding etiquette and instruction throughout.
Echelon Group: 50-60km route at 30+km/hour
This is the “fast” group, and it is a drop group. Recommended for seasoned riders on road bikes. The aim of the ride is to go fast, ride in a cohesive group and maybe go after some Strava segments.

6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Georgian Nordic Outdoor Activity Centre (Nine Mile Lake Road)

Due to the demanding nature of our local trails this ride is recommended for intermediate/ advanced riders on mountain bikes. This is a “re-group” ride, where we will re-group at major intersections and turns.
Cancellation Policy: The MTB Group Ride will go ahead if it’s raining, however it will be cancelled in the event of dangerous weather (lightning, high winds, etc.). We will decide at 3pm the day of the ride if it is cancelled and post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
