The Road Ahead : Upcoming Rides
WHAT'S GOING ON AROUND AND OUT OF TOWN
- AN ONGOING REVIEW OF CYCLING EVENTS IN AND NEAR KINGSTON
Kingston's annual Cycling Week is coming the first week of June - actually starting on the last day of May. Precisely, the dates are Sunday, 31 May to Sunday, 7 June. The Velo Club's annual Roll-In Breakfast for cycle commuters will happen on Wednesday, 3 June. It's an early morning event (7:30 to 9:30 a.m.) at Princess and Clergy Streets. Show up and lend a hand greeting cyclists and promoting Kingston's best (and only!) recreational cycling club.
On Sunday, 7 June, South Frontenac will hold its first ever cycling festival, the Tour de South Frontenac Cycle Fest. South Frontenac Rides is the new group organizing the event. They're also mapping out a series of ride routes in the area. The festival will take place in Sydenham.
Right after Cycling Week we gear up for the Kingston Family Cycling Festival at the Rogers K-Rock Centre. It's where the various cycling groups (including shops) come together to promote recreational cycling. This event has grown since the first one in '13. New groups are already coming on board. The KVC will be on hand. Show up, help promote the KVC - and take a spin on Cycle Kingston's Cycling Skills Circuit on the ice pad (it's okay - the ice will be gone). The Festival will happen on Sunday, 14 June, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
