We can log virtual rides!
I entered my name on two rows in the spread sheet: one for virtual and one for in real life.
Remember, if you have a Strava account you can link to it from your name.
It is the OSCC 30 Days of Biking Challenge. Starting on April 1st try to cycle every day in the month of April. It does not have to be a long ride, just do it. Then post it here;

We originally thought that the ride had to be real, be we since read that virtual rides are OK too.
Of course, outside is better.
Our ride leaders are getting ready for the 2022 season. There are many events already on the calendar and more will be added soon. Most rides will start in the first week of May.
We’ve updated the group riding guidelines on this page.
Grey County Cycling & Trails Master Plan – Public Consultation to close August 14
Grey County has been developing a cycling and trails master plan over the past number of months. In the spring an open house at the county building allowed interested parties to view maps and make suggestions. Bryan Plumstead, Manager of Tourism – Grey County, sent an email on July 31 stating:
“Grey County is moving forward with our Draft Cycling & Trails Master Plan, and is notifying all partners that public consultation will close August 14, 2020.
Comments and feedback can be made through an on-line form available on our Master Plan Initiatives Page, or can be sent to the undersigned.”

You can review and comment on the master plan through the link in Bryan Plumstead’s message: Master Plan Initiatives Page, This is your opportunity to share your views and influence our riding in Grey County.
Also, more recently related to our first OSCC gravel ride, there was correspondence with Sarah Johnson, Intermediate Planner/Forestry-Trails Coordinator, who shared:
“Currently, we are considering some different options with regard to trail maintenance, we have not confirmed at this time what those might be. In the past, we would stone dust a section on an annual basis, we have also more recently re-graded the trail, without the addition of extra materials.
I would appreciate knowing what our trail users think, if you had some suggestions please feel free to pass them along.”
