Chapter 523 BBQ

Sunday October 3 is our Chapter BBQ. A short ride starting at Arby's at 10.30 am will end at my home in Coldwater for the BBQ. Spouses or a friend are welcome to this event and the cost is $10 per person. If you decide to arrive by car, be at the house about 1.00 pm.
The last mid week ride of the season took place last night with a great turnout of nine bikes plus meeting up with two couples that reside in Wasaga Beach which was our destination. The evening was quite mild with fairly clear skies, a perfect end to our mid week rides.

Algonquin Fall Colour Ride

Last Sunday saw thirteen riders turn out for the Fall Colour Ride up through Algonquin Park. It seems that once again I failed miserably to forecast the weather correctly, so despite my prediction of having a dry ride, we rode through fairly constant rain showers all the way to Whitney. Arriving at Whitney about 1.30 pm we found that the hydro had been out since 7.00 am, so NO gas pumps and NO food. The Rain Gods must have looked at this pitiful group and decided to not only quit raining at this point, but have a word with Hydro 1 and supply the hydro again to this small community. The Fall colours were spectacular and everyone appeared to be in good spirits so the ride home was down the Peterson Road, one of the nicest rides I have done. One country kilometer of gravel road, but the rest of the journey was fantastic. Thanks to the Ride Captains, Murray Beers, Steve Shane and Keith Leigh for a really great and safe ride. Thanks also to the "Eyes" at the rear, Steve Ballantyne.

Sunday Memorial Ride

In honour of our "Brother" David Keeler that passed away last year, sixteen members turned out for a memorial ride along the Forks of the Credit Road south of Orangeville. Also took advantage of what the town of Erin had to offer in the way of a lunch and shopping at the local bike store.

Wasaga Beach Wedding

Orangeville Bike Day

Following the SCRC Bash, it was off to Orangeville on a rather dismall day that turned into clear skies. Great company, good food and a successful ride. Thanks to Keith for some pictures, more by clicking on "Picture Gallery 2010".

SCRC Bash in Port Severn

The Sun Goddess shone on the Southern Cruiser's Riding Club for the BASH in Port Severn this past Friday and Saturday. Twenty of our Chapter Members turned out for this event which started with a corn roast on the Friday evening, then on the Saturday we enjoyed a spectacular ride up Cooper Falls Road through Bracebridge, Port Carling, lunching at the Bass lake Restaraunt and continuing through Bala and ending at Muskey's Motel in Port Severn. Chapter 523 had one successful pull in the Tug of War, not bad at all for a team that really hadn't prepared for this event. Several of our members collected door prizes to round off the afternoon. Great buffet dinner followed the games and prizes. Thanks to everyone that participated. For more pictures, please click on "Picture Gallery 2010". Also, thanks to Lou for some of the pictures.
