Three Bridges Road Bike Ride

Here is a beautiful route and not as hilly as some around Waterloo. A GREAT Sunday afternoon tour.

40 KM:

Start at Sir Jam

R on Herrgott Road go past St. Clements
R on Boomer line

R on Ament line
L on Herrgott  – across Hesson Strauss which then becomes Maple Wood Rd through Paradise Lake

R on Erbsville Rd back to Sir Jam.

Well we learned some things today:

-Bring an extra phone – have each others numbers
– bring an extra tube
– bring cash so you can buy maple syrup
– charge down the hills so you can attack the next hill
– don’t be afraid to power your legs and keep cadence fast while you do it. Burn is good.
-Change gears a lot and anticipate when you need to change them on the hills so you don’t loose momentum.
– No body gets left behind
– wave to cars and thank them for moving over by a wave or thumbs up.
– have fun
– bring food.
– you can do more than you think

We had an adventurous day. Two chain derails, one flat tire, one water bottle crash with a car and one water bottle lost. Otherwise is was just a lovely ride with a great group of people.
