Polar Bear Ride

The temperature was a chilly minus 4 degrees when I crawled out of bed last Sunday morning to prepare myself for another Ride Day. By the time I left the house, it had risen to the dizzy heights of zero with ice still on the puddles. Imagine my surprise to find eleven hardy souls ready to ride and enjoy each others company on a beautiful cool sunny day in Muskoka. The initial decision was to keep the ride short but the ride up Coopers Falls Road and 118 into Bracebridge for a coffee stop soon changed to a normal Sunday ride of around 300 kms which took us up through Rosseau, Minet, Port Sandfield and lunch at Bass Lake Restaurant. Then on through Bala, Torrence and down the twisty Muskoka 13 to home. Great ride, Great company.

Cool Weather Riding

Our Sunday rides are still providing us with very pleasant weather although a touch cool when we leave home. Last Sunday we had an amazing 15 bikes show up for the ride to Fenelon Falls with another three that turned up late and unfortunately missed the ride.
With the cooler temperatures, the rides will become a little shorter with perhaps more frequent stops to thaw out. To remain more comfortable, dress in layers and don't forget that throwing on the rain suit does an great job of keeping out the cold wind.

The trip home took us along Muskoka 118 and south on Barkway Road to Coopers Falls Road through Washago, Rama and home. Thanks to the great turnout with a special thanks to the ladies that also showed up. Here are some of the pictures taken by Daphne, more can be seen by clicking on the Photo Gallery 2011.
