Departing Upper Canada Village at 10 and heading toward Cornwall via the Long Sault parkway. Park in rows 7 or 8 at Upper Canada Village; near the highway. Possible stop at the Ingleside Bakery for a snack on the way as it comes highly recommended, but I have not tried it yet. The distance is around 84 km and the speed will be between 23-28 km/hr on the road depending on the group. Due to the restrictions in place all social distancing protocols will be maintained. This event is weather dependent and will be cancelled if chances of rain are high. I will monitor the weather and post by 7 AM on Sunday if it is a no go. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/10025297?fbclid=IwAR2p14N_h6cmlgfO6YOVy2mYzruuuhRuiEHUt3SvjWlYwIKtzQp_-n2JuoA
