An earlier version of this post was mistakenly set to “paid members only”. We’re sorry for the mistake: this is open to all members.

With a new season comes new routes to explore. If you haven’t logged in to BOQ.BIKE in your Ride With GPS app yet this season, you’re in for a treat: we’ve published a new Rambler and a new Adventurer route, both leaving from one of our favourite destination breweries. And we’re taking them for a spin this long weekend!

Fogorig Brewing is the starting point for our new Half Pint (27KM) and the Full Pint (61KM). The routes both maximize the incredible views surrounding Fogorig, travelling around the beautiful gravel backroads and multi-use trails that connect Campbellford, Frankford and Stirling.

This long weekend group ride will be guided by Laura and Adam. Choose the shorter route and follow Laura if you are up for a new elevation and surface challenge and anticipate your average pace being between 16-20KPH (or if you just want to enjoy a shorter ride). The longer route with Adam is a better choice for those who anticipate being able to ride a challenging gravel route with consistent elevation gain at an average over 20KPH. No one will be left behind (no-drop) but take care to choose your route with your own riding style, capacity and goals in mind. Keep in mind that both routes are over 50% unpaved.

What’s a Rambler?’s Rambler routes are established gravel routes that most likely have chipseal and unpaved sections. Expect lots of flat sections with some consistent climbing, as well as 1-2 challenging climbs.

What’s an Adventurer?’s Adventurer routes are established gravel routes that most likely have unpaved roads and/or dirt trails, with fewer flat sections, more consistent climbing and multiple challenging climbs. You may also encounter rare steep offroad climbs.


We'll meet around 9:30 AM at Fogorig Brewing in Hoards Station and the ride will depart promptly at 10:00. Please arrive a few minutes early to give yourself time to get set up. Heading out from the brewery, the routes will split, with the Full Pint riders heading south through Glen Ross onto the Lower Trent Trail. Half Pint riders are headed northeast, skirting around King’s Mill on some prime gravel roads and then looping back to the brewery.

The anticipated riding time for the Full Pint is approximately three hours. The Half Pint is expected to take approximately two hours. This is a “no drop” ride, which means that no one will be left behind, but all riders must be prepared with everything they need to have a comfortable ride, including loading the route on their smartphone or GPS device, as noted in the RSVP details. 

There will be pizza and a variety of snacks and drinks available for purchase at Fogorig starting at 12:00 when the brewery opens. Picnics are welcome, but please don’t bring outside drinks. Enjoy great company back at the brewery after the rides are finished.


We always require every rider to RSVP for group rides. This lets us plan ahead and know how many people to expect, but more importantly, it helps ensure that every rider who joins us is set up for success with event details and the route plan, as well as a basic understanding of the navigation tool Ride With GPS. The RSVP function in Ride With GPS provides your ride leaders a direct line of communication with riders so that we can communicate any updates you'll want to be aware of ahead of a ride.

Not sure you're riding? It's ok to wait to RSVP until you make the decision. You can RSVP right up to an hour ahead of the ride. If you have RSVP'd "Yes" and need to change your status, we'd appreciate if you take a moment to go back to the RWGPS page and change your status to "No".
