Getting a "head start" on the Fall Color Ride.

Last Sunday was sunny and warm and an ideal day for previewing the Fall colors along some of the best riding roads we have in this area. Lunch was in a pretty crowded restaurant in Dorset, lots of other bike clubs, but service was excellent and with a smile. Ride continued through to Dwight and down the beautiful Portage Road to Baysville. Thanks to Ron Hare for the excellent ride he organized for us and also the following pictures.

What a Weekend ????

Last Saturday was the Midland Toy Ride which turned out to be one lonely ride for the few that showed up for a good soaking. It was raining when we left Orillia, rained harder as the day progressed, rained harder still on the Toy Ride, continued raining while eating a great lunch of bacon on a bun, then eased up for the ride back home, wouldn't you know it !!! Thanks to a hardy bunch that braved the weather.

Next day was a complete turnaround weather wise, mostly dry although cool, to say the least. Fantastic ride with a real nice bunch of people stopping at Norland for an excellent lunch. Then the big surprise came with an invite back to Ron and Jan's home for coffee and some good music with Ron on guitar and Dave on drums. Where did all this talent come from ????  Good work guys and thanks so much for the hospitality. Thanks also to Ron Hare for organizing the ride and the pictures.

Fish n Chips anyone.

Another great turnout on a dismal day for our Sunday ride to the fish ladder in Thornberry. Seemed like fish n chips was the choice of the day in the Bridge Restaurant. Good food and even better company. Thanks to Bev and Brian for the pictures.

Friday the 13 th. in Port Dover

Best thing about Friday the 13 th. in Port Dover is the Ride down there and back. Found some roads I'd never been on before and all the turn around's in gravel lots made for a little extra excitement. Great ride Ron including the reserved parking just for our Chapter when we arrived in Port Dover.
Slightly frosty by the time I arrived home at 10.30 pm with 636 kms. on the clock. Not a bad days total. Thanks to Blanka for the pictures. Where does she find these people ???

Well, we sure have a good time don't we ?

Thanks to everyone that showed up for the last Gravenhurst Bike Night of the season. Rain somehow stayed away and we all had a great fun night together. I think a couple pictures were slipped in of another time but it's good to see them anyway. Thanks Blanka for the pictures and congratulations on winning the tennis tournament.
