Ride for Heart

This is not so much a single group ride as an opportunity for people to arrange to bike with people who will do the same distance at the same speed. Swap information in the Comments and make clear plans regarding a meet up spot.

    I'm doing the 75 km route, so I'll need to start between 6am and 6:30am. I have not ridden my bike as much prior to this Ride for Heart as last year's, so I'll aim for 20-25 km/hr.

      Hyedie, you're such a trooper doing it on your fixie!!

      June 1, 2014

    • Hyedie H.

      Thanks Mike! While my time/speed was slightly slower than last year, I feel really accomplished!!

    The ride was great this year. One of only two Ride for Hearts where the weather was nice. Unfortunately, I rode alone as I was too slow for the fast riders and too fast for the slower riders.

    I want to do the 75k at about 27-30km/h avg pace. Any takers? 6:00 start.

    May 28, 2014

    • Joe S

      I think you averaged a bit higher than that. ;)

    Great Ride on a beautiful day. I had a blast and beat my past year's performance. It was great to meet up with the group at the start of the ride and run into some of you at the rest stops. Next week we do this with live traffic, yeah?

    I did 50k, great ride!

    Great ride, great weather, couldn't have asked for much more. :)

    Great ride

    At risk of being repetitive, if you're doing the 75K, meet at the fountain at around 6am at the T intersection of Saskatchewan and Manitoba: https://goo.gl/maps/Zpe88­

    We can figure out groupings based on projected speed at that time.

    • Andy Z.

      I'll be there with wheels on.

      May 31, 2014

    • Donald S.

      Not sure I'll be there by 6 AM, but dn't wait for me. Looks like we won't get rained on for once!

      May 31, 2014

  • Mike

    I will do 75 with someone... Let me know where to meet

    May 31, 2014

  • Shahid

    Anyone doing 50km starting 8? We could make a group. My average 15-20 km/hr.

    May 31, 2014

  • Andrew

    I will start at 8am with my other group...

    Does anybody want to trade donations? I'll donate an equal amount that anyone else donates to my Ride for Heart fundraising campaign to their fundraising campaign of choice, up to a grand total of $300. If you want to trade donations, just reply to this message with the amount and a link to your donation page. You can donate to my campaign at http://support.heartandstroke.ca/goto/andyz

      I'm sending a donation back to you as well.

    • Andy Z.

      Donald, thanks so much!

      May 28, 2014

  • Jane

    Hi I do 25 or 38km, 15-20km/h, , start at 8am, :)

    May 28, 2014

    • Shahid

      I'll be doing 50 starting at 8. Not sure if I can switch to 75, if I feel up to it.

      May 28, 2014

  • Denise I

    Just want to mention that Burger Day is taking place on June 1, noon to 5:00 pm at Fork York. I was very tired after the Ride for Heart last year, so I will need to play it by ear, but it is very tempting. More info at http://burgerweek.ca/burger-week/day/.

  • Shahid

    Hi Sarthak: If you like we could form a group with others starting at the same time. I believe one has to arrive an hour earlier to pick up the kit.

    May 28, 2014

    • Sarthak K.

      Hey, just checked my registration and realized that i was in the early start group.. so sorry..

      May 28, 2014

  • Shahid

    Anyone doing 50km starting at 8? My average is 15-20 km/hr.

    May 27, 2014

  • Joseph

    Im doing the 50km with a friend early start at 630 am. I think were going to aim for around 18-20km/hr since my friend is a new rider.

    May 26, 2014

  • Mike

    I'll be doing the 75k ride. My GF will be doing the 50k ride. Going to try to start as early as possible. Did we want to meet at the fountain again this year at the T intersection of Saskatchewan and Manitoba? https://goo.gl/maps/Zpe88

    May 20, 2014

    • Mike

      I've done it before! Not the most fun on the hills though.

      May 20, 2014

    • Joe S

      Ride your single speed!

      May 24, 2014

  • Jane

    I did 50km last year. There were turnaround points at 25km, 38km, and 50km. This year, I might do 38km. I am wondering how the meetup is going to meet?

    May 21, 2014

    • Denise I

      You should state when you plan to arrive and how fast you will go. Then, hopefully, someone will match you and you can make arrangements on when and where to meet to ride together.

      1 · May 21, 2014

  • Shahid

    I'll join at the starting point.

    May 20, 2014

  • Sarthak K.

    I am doing the 50km one.. so excited about the opportunity to ride on Gardiner.. :)

    1 · May 20, 2014

  • A.J. P.

    Will be doing 75 km. Have a new bike; hope to average 25 kph. LOL.

    1 · May 20, 2014

    • Mike

      Since the Gardiner will only be two lanes, take advantage of the slipstream when everybody is starting off together!

      1 · May 20, 2014

  • Shahid

    The 75k is to where and back?

    May 20, 2014

  • Donald S.

    I'd like to meet up with everyone before the ride, but I'll be doing the ride itself at my own pace. I'll be doing 75 km.

    May 20, 2014

  • Sam

    I’m interested in the 75km ride.
