This training loop is a fairly flat tour through classic rolling farmland punctuated by the scenic mill town of Chesley. Head east across busy Hanover, and then north at Canadian Tire, crossing over the Saugeen River, and straight on to Conc. 6. Turn left (east) and proceed to the stop sign at Grey Rd 3. Turn left, heading north on Grey Rd 3, which is dead straight and can be busy, but traverses classic mixed pasture land and forest. Turn right after the second “S” bend to continue on Grey Road 3, one concession north to Grey Rd 25. Heading west here brings a nice descent, then a little climb before level country. In Scone, the Harley Blues Café (when open) is a nice rest stop, and there is a small park on the left, just past the bridge to get down to river level. Another option is Chesley, which has some great restaurants, and Klage’s mill makes another scenic stop. Heading south from Chesley is a straight run along Sideroad 30, a quiet road with rolling countryside interspersed with marl lakes closer to Hanover. When you reach the airport, you’re almost home, head south to Grey Rd 4 and back to Hanover.
