Cambridge, Ontario riders?
I did a forums search for Cambridge and found nothing. Anyone from around there? I'm at the UWaterloo School of Architecture down in Galt. I've never seen any other cyclists when I do my short downtown -> HWY401 Cedar Creek Rd loop in the evenings.
You never see other riders. ? I see numerous riders on my evening rides.

Try riding Blenheim road. It runs paralell to Cedar Creek rd. It turns into Roseville rd when you get out of Cambridge. Blenheim rd starts at Grand Ave near the dam.
If you are new to the area and would like some routes in the area, let me know. I can give you a few decent rides. What area of Cambridge do you live in?
Highway 24 is nice...upto Guelph
I live in downtown Cambridge (Galt), right next to Blenheim Rd, actually.
I've been living there since Sep 2006.
Come out for this and you'll see lots of cyclists: http://www.cambridgetourdegrand.com

I'll be out for that one as well as the Manulife Ride for Heart.

Thanks! I'm in San Francisco until May 1st. I'll stop by Cambridge Cycle when I get home.
Que CERA, CERA
Gears and Grills is now Grand River Cycle (new ownership, I think) and no longer sells barbecues.
I live in Kitchener (study at the UW main campus, actually). I may do the Tour de Grand, not sure yet--I would want to do at least 100 km if I go, and am still in the process of working up to that distance comfortably. The routes are posted on Bikely.com if you want to check them out (look for other routes in the area as well while you're there).

Yeah, I saw that the other day when I drove by.

If you're a student you'll probably want to hook up with a group that doesn't cost any money. Give them a call first before showing up on their ride night if it's a concern.
