POSTPONED TO OCT. 21 - Annual Autumn Foymount cycle

sam. 21 octobre à 16:00

Fuseau horaire : Paris (GMT+02:00)

Cormac Park

NEW DATE - SAT. OCT. 21, 2017

It is time for the annual Autumn cycle up and down the hills of the Foymount area.  This year I have a new new route that will be approx. 77kms

This ride is for cyclists that are comfortable cycling on hilly roads with traffic and can cycle for 4-5 hours.

This ride starts outside of Ottawa, near the village of Cormac (about 20 kms west of Eganville, down Hwy #512), at 10:00 AM. We will start from a small municipal park, called "Cormac Park", about 500m East of the village.  Google says this is a 1 hr. 45 min. drive from the St. Laurent shopping centre in Ottawa, so plan to leave accordingly.

Our anticipated pace will be 23-25 kms/hr (slower when going up the hills and way faster when going down).

There are no public bathroom facilities nor stores for food purchases, that I know of on this route.  There may be a corner store in Quadeville but not a guarantee.  So stop in Renfrew or Eganville for your bathroom break and please come prepared with all the drinks and food you will need for the ride.

If there is interest, after the ride we can stop in Renfrew for a bite to eat.  The Rocky Mountain House has pretty good Schnitzels.

Ride sharing:
If you need a ride or can offer to share a ride, post a comment. Hopefully another participant can help you out.  Don't forget to chip in a few dollars for expenses.

The route:


All Events, Outings and Activities posted on the Ottawa-Gatineau CYCLING Meetup are entirely at your own risk. They have inherent dangers that may result in extensive costs, serious and life impacting illness(es), serious and life impacting injury(ies) and even death. The website is simply a means of bringing people of similar interests together and the Hosts are simply looking for people with whom they can share the Events, Outings and Activities they enjoy. Organizers and Hosts are volunteers, not professionals. The Ottawa-Gatineau CYCLING Meetup does not check or review their experience, their training, their backgrounds, nor their ability to guide any Outings they post. Hosts only have their own personal experience and training to draw upon with respect to the Outings they post. When a Host posts an event they have only volunteered to guide the "Gathering of Attendees" through the Outing - they are not assuming responsibility for your health or safety, nor do they necessarily have rescue, first aid, CPR or medical training.
