Update 6am: A mainly sunny day awaits in Armstrong. Temp at 9am is 13C. See you at Starbucks at 7:30am or Tim Horton’s at 9am!
Please note: Due to the IPE Parade the area around the park in Armstrong will be busy. We are meeting at Tim Horton’s (2101 Harding Road) instead. It’s a left turn off the highway just before you get to Armstrong. It’s easy to spot, easy to park and is on our route.
We would like to propose a special ride from Armstrong this coming Saturday (Sept 1) … breaking up the long weekend a bit! Now that the smoke has cleared and the temperatures are perfect for cycling, we have to take advantage of it!
The route will be like this one, unless there is consensus to modify: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/48216749
It is roughly 79km and does NOT include the Grandview Bench (some might choose to include it …).
We would start the ride at 9am from Tim Horton’s. To encourage car pooling (and caffeine up!), we will be at Starbucks on Leathead/Highway 97 at 7:30am. Please meet there if you have space for other riders or wouldn’t mind catching a ride!
The weather forecast is for mostly sunny and up to 22C. If there are concerns about the weather, we make a final call on Saturday morning (the cancellation would be posted to the blog by 6am).
