Kevin & Anita Miller -- register at firstname.lastname@example.org
Location / Time: Meet at the Shapes / Peavey Mart strip mall at the SE corner of Nairn Ave & Panet Road at 9:45 AM, and be ready to start cycling at 10:00.
Route, 30K distance. The first 2K is by far the worst cycling ... single file south along Panet Road and then Dugald Road until we cross Lagimodière Blvd. The next 28K is mainly on asphalt pathways and a few residential streets ... except:
- 2K is in the Transcona Community Bioreserve, which has a well-packed fine crushed limestone surface, and
- there is a fun 1K section on a smooth grass/dirt berm that runs parallel to the east Perimeter Hwy and floodway. Anita can lead a boring bypass on residential streets if requested.
Off-road multi-use pathways include: Crossroads Trail, Marianne Cerilli Trail, Devonshire Park Pathway, Veteran's Trail, Park City Pathway, Transcona Trail, Southeast Transcona Pathway, Pandora Pathway, Old King Street Trail, and South Transcona Community Path.
We will present some oral information and interpretation about Transcona history and geography during the ride.
The ride will finish by 2:00 PM. If we're running late, we can shortcut a couple kilometres in the NW part of the route.
Lunch: 20K into the ride at 165 Whiteway Road (our house), in the sunroom, kitchen, and/or patio beside the sunroom. We have organic Goodland apples to eat or take home (bring a bag). Bike parking is in the back yard with us. Washrooms are available in the house.
Bring: Lunch and your name tag.
