There are many large parking lots on all sides of the RIM Park Manulife Sportspex. We will meet in the southeast corner of the eastern parking lot, near the sideroad between the parking lot and the outdoor soccer fields: exact meeting location

Most of this ride is on flat trails that wind through neighbourhoods, beside treed areas, beside a large school yard, beside two small ponds, beside a small creek, and along more connecting trails. There is one small hill, a few residential roads, one traffic light intersection to cross a busy street, and then a second hill (a bit bigger) before we join the Walter Bean Grand River Trail for the last km of the ride before we stop for a rest time at the halfway point (beside the water).

Yes, this ride is on a long weekend -- Join us! :-)
