Eleventh Annual Ride to commemorate Godefridus ( Fred ) Verbakel ( 1953-2010) Brother of John. Held first Wednesday of August annually . Enjoyable ride witrh lots of hills and great stops at Nature’s Corner Bakery in Fenwick and Bench Brewing Co. in Beamsville
We thought this day might not come but we are happy to say we are looking at getting our 2021 cycling season kicked off with a Canada Day ride on Thursday July 1 starting at 9:30 AM sharp. The starting point is
Ramblin’ Road Brewery Farm
2970 Swimming Pool Rd, La Salette, ON
They are open on Canada Day and we are welcome to park there for the ride, and stay for food/beverages on their picnic tables after the ride.
If it rains ( hopefully not ) we would do the ride on Saturday July 3.
The plan is to have a recreational speed ride of somewhere between 45 and 55 km as many members may not have been riding a great deal so far. The goal of this ride is to get together again as a group and gauge who’s interested in getting the season underway.
If you are considering joining the group on July 1 please contact me directly at email@example.com by no later than Thursday June 24. Once we get a critical mass by June 24, the next step would be to officially join the club before riding. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Hoping to see you there.

As we all know, the 2020 season did not materialize. However, the Club executive are optimistic that better times are ahead and we are hoping to begin the 2021 season by July 1st, when it is safe to do so. Online 2021 season membership registration is now operational.
In the mean time, as Spring weather conditions arrive, we are encouraging all past and prospective new members to prepare for the upcoming season. We believe that bike shops are experiencing issues with parts supply delays. So, arrange to have your bike tuned up and ready to go as soon as possible! In addition, riders will need to get their fitness up to par, so get those solo rides going as soon as you can!
The 2021 Weekly and Special Ride Schedule is now available here or on the Ride page. Please note that there may be more rides added later. Check back occasionally. The Wednesday Recreational Ride will start in May. New members should read Riding in a Group.
