Riding though Algonquin this Sunday July 29th?

Anyone feel like a run though Algonquin this Sunday? I'd include 507, Peterson Road, and a number of other nice roads. My GPS suggests it would be around 500 to 550 km depending on the exact roads we took.

Ideally I'd want to eave pretty early Sunday AM.. it should take most of the day according to my GPS.

I guess it depends on who can come. If I was going myself I'd leave Mt Albert area (east of Newmarket) 7-8ish or maybe earlier, but I would welcome company and would be happy to leave later.

My hope was to get back before the worst of the weekend traffic started heading back.

Tom, what route are you taking North? I'm trying to get free for the day and I'm thinking about where I'd meet up with you.
