Aug 12 - Pete MacLoghlin’s West-end ride

 23 cyclists, including Gordon Powell for his 1st ride, turned out for this 35 km ride. From Pete’s home  we cycled thru the Mapleridge subdivision to Dobbin Rd south over the Parkway to Whittington Dr & down to Elmdale Rd past the Sysco plant for a moderate hill climb followwd by a downhill run to Brown Line. We cycled west on Brown Line to Springdale before returning east to Airport Rd, over Hgw 115 to Beardsmore Rd which eventually takes you to Monaghan Rd where we regrouped beside the Otonabee R. We then wound our way on city streets to Lock St for a ride around Little Lk cemetery before cycling over the pedestrian bridge to the RGWT then north to the London St bridge taking the Jackson Cr trail back to Pete’s home for a poolside lunch where Burton McCelland treated us to a tasting of his medal winning ciders & wines.
