So the time has come for a Cognoscenti Cycles weekly ride to be born. It's now September and cyclocross is right around the corner, so I've organised an Urban CX ride for Monday evenings. Next week on September 10th a number of us will be meeting at Bob's coffee shop which is on the corner of Christie & Davenport. Our departure time will be 6:00pm sharp as there's lots of ground to cover before the sun dips into the horizon. This is an unsanctioned ride and therefore is not sponsored by any particular cycling club. It's a "ride at your own risk" night. We'll be riding through several parks and ravine systems to get you comfortable on uneven ground and some dirt. A cross bike or a gravel bike would be your best choice for the evening, though a road bike with 28mm tires could work in a pinch. The pace will be quite civilised and the emphasis will be on navigating those paths and gravel sections with aplomb. Lights and helmets will be essential so charge those torches up to the max. We'll finish off the night in Forest Hill Village for ice cream at the Big Chill. Afterwards we can hit the Boxcar for beers on their lovely outdoor patio if you wish. I hope to see any and all who are up for a fantastic romp through some amazing ravines and parks.
