If you have not yet ridden with me, to ride on this event you MUST answer the following questions in the AFFIRMATIVE. You can do so by copying and pasting the questions into the notes sections of the sign up page:

If you can be a carpool driver and transport at least one passenger and their bike, please do sign up. You will be guaranteed a spot on the event!

This is a lovely, relatively easy ride along the shores of Lake Simcoe from Keswick to Sibbald Point and back. We can add a loop if some or all of us have extra energy. We will have lots of beautiful views of the lake and it is quite flat. While we will use mostly relatively low traffic roads, please do not sign up if you are not safe riding in traffic. We will find a beach to eat our lunch, and if it is hot enough, go for a swim too. When did this ride a few years ago on a very hot day we swam three times.

Once we are back in Keswick, we can stop for refreshments/dinner at the Orchard Beach Lakefront Bar & Grill and its great patio.

We will meet at Don Mills Subway station at the passenger drop off area at 10 am

#### If you are a driver, please indicate how many passengers and bicycles you can take. ####
