N Sydenham Spring Tune-Up Backroader

Sunday, May 4th, at 10:00 a.m. Meet at the Leith Bridge

It's time to dust off that backroad bike (hybrid or MTB) and connect with nature... see the daffodils popping up, feel that cool crisp spring air and smell that aroma of that decaying groundhog on the side of the road.
Therefore I decided to host a ride looping around the north end of the former Sydenham Township. It will include a bit of pavement, but mostly gravel, dirt or summer roads. It should cover around 50km. or so. Not a race, but just a fun ride.
