    Thornhill road cyclists?

    I've been riding solo for about 2 months now since getting back into cycling more seriously. I would like to meet some other cyclists in my area that would like to hook up for road riding.

    Weather permitting I usually go around 5 or 6pm Tue/Wed/Thu and around 8am (or so) Sat/Sun. If you're close to my area (near Promenade Mall) and interested please PM me.

    My goal is to improve my cycling skills and possibly enter club racing next spring/summer.

    You should check out the "doughnut ride". Those guys (and gals) work their way up from Eglinton and Laird and end up crossing Yonge st just North of Steels and continue west just past the Petro Can(?). I haven't done the ride in a few years. Can't remember what time they come through on Sat and Sun mornings. It is still pretty much a chill ride until Bathurst and 7 is hit, then it is on.

    Well the weather finally came around and I've been riding for 2 weeks now (both road and MTB). If anyone lives in Thornhill and wants to ride (esp. road) I'm opening to meeting.

    Sounds good... I'm not too far away (dufferin and finch). Would be interested in knowing routes out that way.

    I mostly stick to a big industrial area where there is little to no traffic (especially on weekends), the roads are fairly new and smooth and I can mostly avoid stop lights.
