Important note. There will be TWO meetups for this ride. One to catch the 7:20 GO train back to Toronto, and one to catch the 10:30 train. Please only RSVP to one of them!!
Both groups will stay together until Port Dalhousie. At that point, the 7:20 group will bike directly to the train station in Niagara Falls, while the 10:30 group will continue on to Niagara-on-the-Lake and visit some wineries and have a relaxing dinner overlooking the Falls, most likely at Milestones.
Unfortunately for the 7:20 group, it won't be a full century (100 miles) unless you loop around Niagara Falls a few times.
Part 1 to Port Dalhousie
Part 2 to Niagara Falls via Niagara-on-the-Lake
This ride is for experienced cyclists with good equipment. If you're not able to bike 25 - 30 km/hr you will have to proceed on your own. There will be plenty of drop out points where you can catch transit back to Toronto if you run into mechanical or health problems. I'll give out my cell phone via email a day before the ride, if you run into problems, please text me. I'd like to keep stops to a minimum and to what's listed on the map/below. Also, if you want to join the ride at a point other than the start, Humber Bridge, or Port Credit, let me know where to expect you, but be warned, we may be far ahead or behind schedule.
