Join us for a fall ride on Sunday, October 22nd!
This 43KM gravel bike route in Belleville is the best way to take in fall views just outside the city. The length is approachable (it won't take all day) and there's a great balance of flats to climbs for those who want to dip their toes into some elevation gain (we’re already planning a post-ride pint at Meyer’s Creek Brewing!)
What’s an Adventurer?
bayofquinte.bike’s Adventurer routes are established gravel routes with consistent climbing, and the possibility of multiple challenging climbs. Expect up to 1:1 elevation gain vs distance travelled.
We'll meet at 9:00 AM at Foxboro Public School parking lot. Heading out from Foxboro, the route will keep you on your toes with a mix of paved surfaces and unpaved backroads. This is a mid-length ride that’s perfect for someone looking to challenge their past kilometres and get a real payoff for their climbs while making the most of beautiful fall days. There is a gradual off-road climb on Dutch Girl Road near the end of the route.
The anticipated riding time is approximately three hours at a casual pace. This is a “no drop” ride, which means that no one will be left behind at any point. You can expect many different paces throughout the ride, so you’re sure to find great folks to enjoy the route with.
We always require every rider to RSVP for bayofquinte.bike 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 allows the 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 each ride.
Not sure you're riding? It's ok to wait to RSVP until you make the decision. You can RSVP right up to the start time 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" so that we don't wait for you at the starting point.
- Riders must RSVP in Ride With GPS and be members of bayofquinte.bike. All riders must have the route accessible via their smartphone or GPS device. Rocking a flip phone, no data plan, or a device-free life? You can print the cue sheet or download the route for offline use.
- Riders must bring their own bike, helmet, water, tools, tube, and snacks.
- All bikes must be in excellent working condition on arrival and should have gravel or mountain tires, and be equipped with front and rear lights and a bell.
