Toronto to Port Credit - training for Niagara Falls to Toronto next weekend

G'day. A few of us would like to do the Niagara Falls - Toronto run next Sunday (Monday is recovery day...) This will be a fitness test and our goal will be to cover the 50km or thereabouts at an average moving pace of 20km/h. I'd also like to experiment with riding "pace line" as that'll help us conserve energy on the long haul.
We will definitely stop at Starbucks Port Credit. I usually stop for espresso at Felicia's and again at Cherry Bomb.
We'll leave from the Princes' Gates at 8:00AM and I expect we will be back by 11:00AM. I will head south on Christie from Dupont Street at 7:30/7:45 so PM me if you want to meet along the way.

    The forecasts I'm seeing call for clear skies at least until 10:30. If anyone still wants to do the run let me know.

      I didn't hear anything so I just ended up going to the beaches and doing hill repeats in the mid-morning. Super day for going up those hills near Vic Park and Queen.

    Is this ride still canceled? Because right now it's looking pretty nice outside...

    Seeing as it's almost 3 AM and I have yet to sleep, I have to bow out. I plan on running 5K tomorrow to make up for it.

    Hey Greg if the weather holds up, do you plan on cruising across the Lakefront trail at Exhibition Place, and then onto Lakeshore past Port Credit? I might show up about 10 or 15 minutes late and catch up with you on the way there.

    Again, depends on the weather and whether or not this ride is happening...

      Hey Fred, that was the plan but the weather forecast is poor. No ride tomorrow unfortunately.

    G'day Fred, good to hear from you.
    Folks, I'm going to cancel . Chance of precip is still 80% and forecast is for thunderstorms.

  • Greg

    It's not looking good for tomorrow. POP is 80% and they're calling for t-storms. If it stays above 70% it'll be wake up at 5:30, check the sky and check the weather radar.
    I'll post again this evening with an update.
