Wed July 3 - Jim Pare’s Hasting Ride

18 cyclists met at Jim’s home on the Trent R 3 km east of Hastings on another ideal day for cycling. Pete Gardner arrived after we had left Jim’s home & realizing that he could not cross the river on the pedestrian bridge decided to ride to Campbellford but did return for lunch. Jim led us on the rough TCT into Hastings, across the river on Bridge St, east on Front St to River R, down Park Lane to the LHTCT. West on the TCT to the Asphodel 3rd line where Lloyd & Conrad continued on the TCT & the others rode uphill , across Cty Rd 2 to Westwood with a right turn on to Centre Line for a medium grade hill climb to continue east on the slight undulations of Centre Line to Asphodel 7th Line. South on the 7th across Cty Rd 2 to River Rd returning to Jim’s for a delicious BQ lunch & swim after a 32 km ride.
