200K in a Day Courtice to Bath

Do you have the mojo to cycle 200 kilometres? That’s right, 200 km from Courtice to Bath, Ontario, all one way going east with a nice breeze behind our backs. This ride takes us through some of the nicest scenery in the province. Ride through Port Hope and Cobourg and stop for lunch in Brighton, cycle  through Prince Edward County and take the free Glenora ferry across the water to the Loyalist Parkway, this ride has it all. We will finish at The Loyalist Golf & Country Club in Bath, and after a well deserved shower and lunch, we will be whisked back to Courtice in a school bus. Please bring an old blanket to help pack your bike in the bus. Tom & Cliff will drive the SAG vehicle and provide water, eload, gummies, bananas & watermelon. Bring a change of clothes and shoes for the bus ride back, as well as your own food for the ride. There is a limit of 20 riders for this ride and you must be a registered member in good standing. Please be serious when you sign up because space is limited. So get training today and join us for a great time. Special thanks to Cliff Bruton & Tom Moffatt for making this ride a reality this year.
