Welcome to Sensible Social Cycling

2019 Sensible Social Cycling

Sensible Social Cycling is an NTSC Member-Sponsored Event – No registration fee and all are welcome! Come on out and enjoy a ride! Please ensure your bicycle is in good working order, bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a lunch/snack.

We will cycle on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays, meeting at 10:00 am, unless otherwise specified. A typical ride will wrap up sometime mid-afternoon.

Our Wednesday rides begin next Wednesday, May 15 with our Edwards Gardens – Bridle Path – Sunnybrook Park ride. 40km. Ride details are on the schedule.

Our Wednesday program includes both “Higher Gear” and “Low Gear” rides, just like last year. “Higher Gear” rides move a little faster than our Saturday and Sunday rides, so we can cover our usual distance between rush hours. “Low Gear” rides are more leisurely and are usually shorter. On some Wednesdays, we even have “Higher Gear” and “Low Gear” rides on the same day! So there’s lots of variety to choose from.

Our Saturday / Sunday rides begin on Saturday, May 25 with our “South Etobicoke Ramble”. It’s a 30km “low gear” ride so we can get our riding legs back in form.

Most of your usual favourites are back but we have a few openings for some new rides if you would like to volunteer to lead your favourite ride. Just let me know I’ll see if we can add it to the schedule. New ride leaders are always welcome.

We have one weekend ride this year, on Saturday, June 15. It’s part of Brian Dyce’s Spring Hiking & Cycling Weekend, in Midland. This ride works as either a day trip or a weekend trip. If you’d like to come for the weekend, you need to book through Brian Dyce right away. [email protected].

Thank you to all of our volunteer ride leaders for offering your time once again this summer.
