The Cycling Club has been organizing Sunday bike rides throughout this summer and are now winding down for the season. You are invited for a special ride this Sunday along the Cambridge to Paris Rail-Trail.
The 18 kilometre (11 mile) trail follows the Grand River through lush Carolinian Forest with spectacular river overlooks en route. Posts mark each kilometre from Cambridge. The trail is level, finished with fine gravel, and provides an easy path for cyclists and hikers.
The Cambridge to Paris Rail-Trail is owned and operated by the Grand River Conservation Authority and follows the old roadbed of the Lake Erie and Northern Railway between the City of Cambridge to the Town of Paris. It was opened in 1994 and was one of the first Ontario abandoned rail lines to be converted to recreational trail use.
This will be a family-friendly bike ride and will include a rest stop (including water, fresh fruit and free cheers) at the halfway point (9 km point).This is a dual length ride meaning you can choose between the shorter 18 km route or the longer 36 km route. Both routes start together and ride together for the first 9 km until the rest stop.
Go to the Cycling Club website and learn more about where to meet, what to bring, etc.
Load up your bike and come for a beautiful autumn ride!
