Brekky in Quebec-y? 25km to Aylmer

I have picked Saturday August 10th at 8:30am. 

Meet on the trail by the water fountain on the Ottawa side of the bridge (I will try and be more descriptive if anyone is not familiar with this spot!) The ride is about 25km from this spot.

This is a fun ride I like to do so I was wondering if anyone else might be interested.

Over the Champlain Bridge and west on the trail towards Aylmer (nice views of the Deschenes Rapids)
Breakfast at Moca Loca in Aylmer! http://www.mocalocacafe.com/home/propos/accueil/
Down the big hill to the Marina, (whee!) and back on the path and over the bridge.

It is 35 km from my place (near Lincoln Fields transit station) and it pretty much flat. The riding takes me 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Would anyone want to go on a weekday morning? Early before work? The coffee is REALLY good!

      Thanks for hosting, Natasha, and for introducing us to a great little coffee shop. I hope you will organize another event soon.

  • Jillz

    Guess my sense of direction is really out to lunch, been trying to find you guys but no luck :(
    Next time...

    August 10, 2013

    • Natasha

      We've started! If you want to come meet us at the cafe!!

      August 10, 2013

    • Jillz

      I just got back home, didn't want to hold you up. If I couldn't find the bridge imagine me trying to find the cafe! Have fun. Better luck next time

      August 10, 2013

  • Jillz

    What time do you estimate we'll be back at the Champlain bridge?

    August 9, 2013

    • Jillz

      Perfect. Thanks. See you in the morning

      August 9, 2013

    • Natasha

      Maybe longer if anything? I didn't expect so many people to sign up! I guess some people might want to skip coffee if they have to get back faster. There's gonna be a line at the coffee shop, Ha!

      August 9, 2013

  • Julien L.

    I'm in Montreal. Thank you Natasha for organizing!!!!!

    BTW if the café is full the restaurant by the marina may have some space... if its open. http://aylmermarina.com/contact-us/

    August 9, 2013

    • Natasha

      Yeah! I didn't expect so many people to respond! I guess if people just want to keep going they can. We will see!

      August 9, 2013

  • Marianne A.

    How fast will you guys be riding? I can probably average about 18 km/hr. I don't want to slow people down.. especially knowing that I would be "standing" in the way of people's coffee! Or can the slowpokes just meet up with everyone at the restaurant? =)

    August 9, 2013

    • Natasha

      I don't know?! I wouldn't want to leave anyone behind! We could go in 2 groups I suppose, I didn't expect so many people to come ! Please come if you want, there's lots of nice things to see on the way.

      August 9, 2013

    • Marianne A.

      Okay! I'll see you guys at the base of the bridge.

      August 9, 2013

  • Marianne A.

    Love this combination: biking and breakfast!

    August 9, 2013

  • Albert

    No worries I'll keep you company - I don't plan on going too fast!! Actually, we really are not supposed to go above 20K on the bike paths (correct me if I am wrong). I do believe that peiple who want to go faster are supposed to go on the roads...

    August 9, 2013

    • Natasha

      No that's true Albert! Also it's a bit of a windy path anyhow.

      August 9, 2013

  • Natasha

    Here's the website for the cafe in Aylmer. It's a cafe with small breakfast things like croissants, english muffins, bakery stuff and some nice yogurt things. Not a place for a plate of bacon and eggs! Sorry if that's what anyone was expecting! I will send out an email to those attending later when I have a minute. Honestly I have never been here on a Saturday morning so I am not sure how busy it will be, I go during the week http://www.mocalocacafe.com/home/our-cafes/aylmer/

    Does the restaurant have outdoor seating? I won't leave my bike unattended.

    Hey Natasha, just wondering... The write up says 10AM, but the meetup says 8:30?
    ,

    July 29, 2013

    • Natasha

      Omg! Thanks. I did mean 8:30am. I don't even remember saying 10am in the write up. I will see if I can figure out how to change from my phone

      July 29, 2013

    • Natasha

      Thanks so much for pointing that out!

      July 29, 2013

    July 28, 2013

  • Natasha

    OK guys! Looks like there's interest in a weekend date. Saturday the 10th?

    July 28, 2013

  • Albert

    How about a weekend morning?- cant do it on weekdays...

    July 28, 2013

  • Jillz

    Sounds great, depending on the date

    Early morning weekdays is OK for me

    July 27, 2013

  • Julien L.

    I'd love to do the trail to Aylmer. Its very thrilling at night. I think all my weekends in August are taken up though. Plot it on Google maps to get distance and time.

    July 26, 2013

    • Julien L.

      Ah! So by brekky you meant breakfast! (i thought you meant break dancing :-) ). Sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately I couldn't join you for a weekday morning. But feel free to promote it for sure!! Good luck!

      July 27, 2013

    • Ghassan

      Great idea, but I won't be able to make it for weekday mornings. Any other time would be fine (weekday evenings, weekends).
