For some of us, a part of our journey together as a team includes participating in Practice Rides leading up to the September event. Riding together gives us an opportunity to train together, hang out after over coffee and test our personal fitness prior to the event. For anyone looking to ride the 80 km event for the first time, we highly recommend at least joining us in Collingwood on August 25th as we ride the ride day route.
The scheduled practice rides for Chain ReACTion are posted below...
Saturday, June 2nd 50-60 km ride (2-1/2 hour ride)
Saturday, July 7th 70-80 km ride (3-1/2 hour ride)
Saturday, August 25th 80 km Collingwood course ride
The first 2 practice rides will accommodate a 40 km ride for those interested. Please let us know ahead of time if you intend to ride with us and what distance you plan to ride. The June and July rides start at 8am sharp so please arrive for preparing at 7:30am. The ride in June and July will start and end at the Gordon Home (contact us for details).
Our Collingwood ride begins by meeting in the main parking lot at the Village at Blue for 8:30am with take-off at 9am. Our Collingwood ride always ends with a shared meal and reflection on the ride. Count on this fully supported ride taking 4+ hours.
ALL PRACTICE RIDES ARE RAIN OR SHINE! All rides are "no drop" meaning that we all ride together as a team or wait at the next intersection. Come prepared!
