This is a repeat of the Hydro Fields & Bungalows ride held on July 21 with the inclusion of the DVP and some changes based on suggestions. Most noteworthy change: there will be no sweep to bring up the rear, and the expected pace will be 22 km/hr. We will stop briefly at optional exits marked on the map to regroup.
Experience the biking infrastructure of Scarborough. Majority of the route will be bike friendly or empty residential streets, but biking on major streets without a bike lane will be necessary. See the revised route map here: http://goo.gl/maps/37kgf
We will be travelling 22 km/hour without a sweep. Riders should be prepared to tackle hills. It is a long and winding route so it is essential that everyone be able to keep up.
