Sept 15: Tom’s Armstrong Classic – Another favourite!

Presented by Tom Ferguson:

Armstrong Classic on September 15th (weather permitting)

We will meet at 8:45am at the Memorial Park in Armstrong (where the Century Ride starts); you should be ready to start cycling by 9:00am.  Please try to car pool to Armstrong with other cyclists if you can.  The park washrooms will be open.  Remember to bring enough food and drinks for the ride.  There will be a resupply at Farmer John’s in Grindrod (at 63km); they have drinks, snacks, ice cream etc. 

The ride is approximately 80km with 815m of vertical gain (see GPS here).  There is an option at the beginning of the ride to add another 10 km (with a little climbing) for those keen and interested.  We would regroup on Otter Lake Road. 

After the ride, for those interested, we will meet for lunch at Spallumcheen Golf Course.  They have decent food with a nice sitting area outside. The easiest way to get there is to drive south on Otter Lake Road.

Watch this blog for a last update on September 15th at 6am to confirm (or cancel) the ride, based on weather.
