CE PARK LOOPS

June 18 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

DESCRIPTION
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!

THE ROUTE
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.

REGROUP SECTIONS:
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.
