Bike ride to Sydney

I will be hosting a 4-5 hour bike ride from Saanich Municipal Hall to Sydney pier starting on the Galloping Goose and then joining the Lochside Trail.  It will be about 50 km. This is the first event I've hosted, so I'm keeping it small.  There will be stops along the way at Matticks Farm and Mitchell Farm.  This will be an easy to average ride, perfect for those who dislike hills.  Please bring a pack lunch or you can buy a snack in Sydney.  We will have half an hour for lunch as we  aim to be back at Saanich Hall by 2:30-3:00.

Please bring:

A spare tube for your bike and a helmet

lunch, water, snacks

rain jacket

    Can't make it on Sunday mornings as I go to church then. Perhaps some might be scheduled in the afternoon with a pub stop?
