Well, this is exciting. Before it gets too cold, the Century Club is going to be making one last group ride.
On October 12th, we have a scheduled a brisk – in temperature, if not pace – 50km ride from Waterdown to the beautiful Wellington Brewery and we will celebrate with a tasting of delicious, local microbrews.
The space is limited; the tasting room holds only 50 people, so sign up early. Tickets are 20 dollars and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to our team’s fundraising effort.
Sunday I made the trek down to Niagara Falls for the first #RTCC Training ride. I picked the 50 km ride, but a wrong turn made it a nice and breezy 61. I’d guess there were about 150 people out, with rides ranging from 25-75 km, and the weather was perfect.
Congrats – and thanks – to The Ontario Ride for the excellent support on the ride. All intersections had people stopping traffic, and the tent had drinks and snacks.
Honestly, it’s easy to be thankful when you are out in the sun, but the couple of hours flew by as I met people and we shared stories about fund raising, fighting this disease and the small talk that we often take for granted.
