    Anyone up for a Sunday morning ride? Toronto

    Just wondering if anyone (hopefully more than 1 person) is interested in riding this Sunday morning. I'm thinking an 8 or 9am start time. Not too sure on distance but no more than a few hours in duration. I don't have a lot of group experience so I'm not sure about pace... I'll go with moderate to be on the safe side.

    I'm open to suggestion as far as the route goes. I'm at Bathurst/St.Clair but will travel just about anywhere in the city (within reason).

    Why don't you join the Heart and Stoke bike ride along the DVP and Gardiner Expressway? It's on Sunday morning starting at the Exhibition Place. Start times range from 6:15 to 8:45, and distance range from 25 km, 50 km or 75 km. This will be my first 75 km ride in many years!!

    What if we haven't registered or raised any funds? Just looking at the site and I don't think it's possible to simply ride along or even join at the last minute. Looks like you have to fundraise and pay a registration fee.

    It's a fun ride -- when else do you get a chance to ride along two smooth freeways through the center of downtown Toronto?

    I just registered last evening. There is still time today to register. Based on the numbers there last night, I expect there to be a good turn out.

    If you can register for an early start, do it. Too crowded at the start otherwise. We're doing 6:45 am 75 km

    Ahh, I would love to do this but there's no way I can get over to Yonge and Eg and get back for work this afternoon. Shoot, that would have been really be great.
