Here are the details of our Canandaigua ride below:

[A] 3 ROUTES TO CHOOSE FROM
1. 15(ish) miles – from downtown Cdga to Ononda Park, W Lake Rd
2. 22(ish) miles – from downtown Cdga to Bristol Lodge, Seneca Point Rd
3. 45(ish) miles – from downtown Cdga around Cdga Lake (west to east)

[B] ROUTE DETAILS
   1. Ononda Park – rolling from our start location (see below), we’ll turn onto Parish Street, then onto Cty Rd 16/W Lake Road for a leisure ride flat nearly all the way – except for one short hill – to Ononda Park – left side of road. If this is your chosen route, you can enter the park and find the snack table near the lake with water, oranges, CHOCOLATE (of course) and other stuff. Then you’ll turn around and roll back to our start location. (There is a hill going back.)

2. Bristol Lodge – rolling from our start location (see below)  we’ll turn onto Parish Street, then onto Cty Rd 16/W Lake Road for a leisure ride passing Ononda Park (stop of shorter ride – #1 above) and climb to Bristol Lodge.  You have a choice of climb – Miller hill (passing Miller nursery and staying on W Lake Road and then turning L at top onto Seneca Point Road and rolling to Bristol Lodge on right) *OR* turning left onto Coye Road and while flat for a bit, will have to shorter but still good climbs. At top of Coye Rd, you turn left and roll to Bristol Lodge on the right.) Stopping here for snacks – oranges, chocolate (of course!), water and other things. This group will turn around from here and head back home to our start location.

3. Around Canandaigua Lake – rolling from our start location (see below)  we’ll turn onto Parish Street, then onto Cty Rd 16/W Lake Road for a leisure ride passing Ononda Park (stop of shorter ride option #1 above) and climb to Bristol Lodge. You have a choice of climb – Miller hill (passing Miller nursery and staying on W Lake Road and then turning L at top onto Seneca Point Road and rolling to Bristol Lodge on right) *OR* turning left onto Coye Road and while flat for a bit, will have to shorter but still good climbs. At top of Coye Rd, you turn left and roll to Bristol Lodge on the right.) Stopping here for snacks – oranges, chocolate (of course), water and other things. From this stop (ride #2 option above turns back home from here), this group will continue down Seneca Point Road to Hicks Road for a gorgeous climb back to County Rd 21. Maps will be provided at ride start for the rest of this route that rolls down pass Monica’s Pies and across to the east side, through Middlesex and back north ultimately hugging the shores of Canandaigua lake and into downtown Canandaigua.
