CE PARK LOOPS
August 1 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Join Common Empire for a weekly loop of the Gatineau Park, followed by river beers! The purpose of this ride is to have fun and connect with the National Capital Region’s cycling community. We ride rain or shine!
This is a loop of the Gatineau Park. There are lots of hills and opportunities to go fast. Please take the first two hills easy to let yourself warm up. For the Spicy group, feel free to skip the lookout as you may want to go full tilt back to the bottom.
In the event that your group breaks apart (which we are trying to avoid), there will be some regroups in a few key sections on the loop. These will take place at the top of Pink Lake, P8, Half way up Fortune Rd and at the Champlain Lookout. Try to keep everyone together as you ride, you will be faster as a group!
For your first CE ride, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to go through riding safety instructions. We also will ask that you join the chill group to learn how we operate our pelotons.
Post ride beers: TBD
We break up the ride into categories and groups of 10-15, to ensure you’re riding in the right group, while keeping it as safe as possible. The goal is for everyone to have fun no matter the pace of the ride!
A – Fast – This is a fast paced group however there will be regroups throughout the ride route. Avg speed 30-35kph at the end of the ride.
B – Medium – Tempo (medium paced groups at traffic lights and stops – keep everyone together). Avg speed 26-30kph at the end of the ride.
C – Chill – 25kph (if requested)
WHAT TO BRING:
We hope to see you there!! :
