Upon arrival, riders will have the option of joining rides of 5, 20, or 40 km around the Sydenham Lake area, participate in canoeing or kayaking on the lake, take a casual bike tour along the Cat Trail, or a walking tour of historic Sydenham. There will be a free bar-b-cue for all to enjoy in the late morning/early afternoon. The KVC group will return to Kingston by bike, leaving around 2 PM. Riders can also choose to drive to Sydenham, and join activities there.
