Route A - Legion to Lockport and back

The introductory or slow ride

Distance: 39.6 km

Sprint Locations: None

 

A good introduction to riding in a group with FOG.

 

Up Main and then past Larter's along River heading north on the west side of the Red River to the old Skinners. Return by crossing the Red via the bridge over the locks, take the first right after that (Hwy 204/Henderson Hwy) and head south.

 

The entire group rides to Lockport before continuing on to longer and faster rides. The ride is kept to approximately 30 kph until Lockport (somewhat faster if there's a strong tailwind). The jump in pace after Lockport can be quite dramatic so if you are struggling to that point you should turn back here. Everyone will stop at Skinners to divide into groups. There will be a short break where you can assess your options. NOTE: There is no formal ride back. Sometimes one or two riders may turn back at Lockport, but that is not a certainty. The route back is very straightforward though.

** Roads are not closed to traffic. Riders must always put safety first. Do not cross the centre line of the road. Cars may back out onto the road or slow suddenly to turn.
