Freewheel Cycle is delighted to announce we are expanding our group ride roster this year and with it, a new ride leader!
We are pleased to be offering weekly “Town & Gravel” casual rides as well monthly Social Rides, led by the unendingly energetic Lisa Clarke. With her passion for cycling and heartfelt encouragement for novice riders, Lisa is always happy to welcome new people into life on two wheels. Her love of the sport and infinite enthusiasm will lead the charge as she takes on the new role of Social Ride Leader.
These casual rides are for adults of all ages and fitness levels, riding all kinds of bicycles. We will ride out from the parking lot behind the shop (accessed from Cross St) and tour an accessible route through beautiful Dundas at a social, conversational pace. Aimed at the casual or newer rider, these rides are intended to be accessible to all interested people riding a variety of bicycle types. Each ride will last about an hour and culminate at a local culinary destination near the shop.
Our first monthly Social Ride will be on Saturday May 13th starting at 10am. At a leisurely pace we will explore the unique beauty and culture of Dundas. We will end our meandering pedal enjoying the hospitality of Scott Barnim at his beautiful studio located in his 1850 stone house and stable. Scott is brewing us a big pot of tea and goodies. Relax after our ride and enjoy Scott’s fabulous pottery studio hometown hospitality, and inviting front porch and garden.
