Hi folks - this weekend we have our first ride of the autumn season - and the forecast looks stellar at this point.

Saturday's ride is entitled, "Hillsvale - Beaver Bank".  Link to the route is

Note that the ride begins and ends at the Sunnyside Mall parking lot in front of the Second Cup coffee shop - please park any vehicles away from the buildings so as not to inconvenience the businesses inside.

Scheduled distance is 102km.

We'll head out on the Old Sackville Road bypassing Lower Sackville, then make our way to Mount Uniacke and Lakelands, where we turn onto the South Rawdon Road to (not surprisingly) South Rawdon.  We then head up Route 14 and turn onto the Beaver Bank Road, where, after the 6.5km of crappy pavement, we will enjoy the smooth tarmac to Beaver Bank and back to Bedford again.

We'll have a store stop at the midpoint of the ride, and we will attempt to conduct this ride at a moderate pace (you know who I'm talking about...).  Feel free to invite a friend or two on this ride as it should be a nice day out in the countryside.
