Milton Squared

Sunday August 23, 2015 10:00 am

67/85/110 km

Remote rural roads and plenty of fresh country air. Long ride Kilbride, Lower Base Line, Hornby. Short and medium rides just west of downtown Milton.

Starting Point: Aberfoyle GO Park and Ride at Brock Rd. S. and McLean Rd Puslinch. Tim Horton's nearby.

Description: This new ride goes in a big square around Milton for the long route, and just west of downtown Milton for the short and medium routes. The ride features long stretches where you can get your mojo going for speed.  

 

The short route veers at 21k at Derry Rd, then goes up Tremaine to Campbellville Rd. The medium and long are together until 44k, where the medium goes over to and up Tremaine Rd to Campbellville Rd. The long route goes down Bell School Line and eventually wends its way along Lower Base Line to Sixth Line. Note – there is no place for water/food for a long stretch between 22k and 70k on the long route, so make sure you fill your bottles up at Kilbride Country store!

 

All rides are routed to go to the Halton Country Golf on Sixth Line Nassagaweya, where we can lunch at Finnegan’s Irish Pub (alternative earlier lunch spot for the longs is at Hornby Glen Golf bistro/patio).

 

Apologies for 2km of hard-packed dirt road (Gilmour) at the start. The mapping showed McLean Rd going through to Victoria from Brock, but yikes - it doesn’t! So I had to route across Gilmour over to Victoria.

 

After the ride, check out the Aberfoyle Antique Market just up the road at 57 Brock Rd. S. $2 admission.

 

I look forward to seeing you at this ride! Cue sheet and map links below from ridewithgps and PDFs attached.
