Around Lake Simcoe

Riding days maybe getting scarce but last Thursday the temperature hit a balmy 25 degrees so 6 members took off on a Circle the Simcoe Ride lead by Bram who had suggested this ride to me some while ago. Great job and also real nice pictures thanks to Bev and Ron Hare. More pictures by clicking on "Photo Gallery 2012"

Fall riding at it's best

Another great Fall ride last Sunday to the Badlands south of Orangeville. Weather started out looking pretty grim but we knew that going south or west, we would have a dry ride. Not only was it dry but the skies cleared just south of Barrie to add a little heat from the sunshine. Thanks to the 16 members that showed up and also to the "Pilgrim" for suggesting and leading this ride. Great job.

Three hardy types heading out for a chilly ride on Thanksgiving Sunday. Looked like two big patches with heated grips and heated seats and one little patch that froze her bee-hind. Hope this is not an indication of what we can expect for weather as we head through October and November. Everyone keep your fingers crossed. Thanks Blanka for the pictures.

Fall color ride to Algonquin Park

Despite the gloomy weather forecast, last Sunday morning in Orillia presented itself as clear skies and calm winds so the hasty decision was made to make the trip north through Algonquin Park to see the Fall colors. The sunny conditions lasted almost to Huntsville then changed to overcast skies and light drizzle but somehow didn't dampen anyone's spirits.
Fall colors in the Park were at their peak, the best I've ever seen, pretty difficult to capture the sight on camera but thanks to some of our members, they gave it a good shot.
One little hiccup was when we arrived at Whitney for lunch, they were all out of gas. Fortunately the fuel truck pulled in while lunch was being served.
By the time I went through Orillia on the way home, the evening sky was ablaze with color promising a beautiful day to follow, an end to a perfect day with great companions.
Thanks to all those that participated including Steve and the Pilgrim that lead this ride and to Karl that served as Blocker and Tail Gunner. Here are some of your pictures, the rest can be seen in the Photo Gallery.
