No, please visit the link below or look under Events for N.E.V.A. 14.
We will be in the Berkshires of Massachusetts the first weekend in August.
Great weekend, great riders, all around GREAT time. I promise you will enjoy. We are thankful to have a large Canadian contingency for these events.

Count me in. I'm taking Friday Aug 1st off. If there are strommers heading through Buffalo that day let me know so we can hook up. It will be great if we can make a grand appearance with a large group. This rally can also be put on the meeting agenda of the SW Ontario group to discuss further

I guess I should have specified what border crossing I will be using. Either the one in Ganonque or Brockville would work for me. I am likewise taking Aug 1st off and plan to leave around 7 or 8am.

I will be going from Buffalo on Friday morning. Will be a boring ride to get there taking I-90. We can meet up in the Tonawandas or Pembroke Service station if you like.

I'm probaly leaving the same time or sooner. I don't know if it's feasible meeting up along the line, Would you be getting on the I-90 at some point

That sounds good, I plan on taking the I-90 to get there as soon as possible, maybe getting a ride in down there later in the day. As for the Ontario riders, maybe we can meet up at my place in St Catharines (only 1 Km from the QEW)

hoping to avoid interstates That may change as the time gets closer but my experience on them is very limited and there just seems to be much nicer roads to ride!

Neva 14...

This will be my 3d NEVA outing . The small group I will be riding with will leave from Newmarket on Wednesday , 30 July , pick up another rider in Peterborough , and wind our way to Lake placid for an overnight .
Last year , I set up a GPS route using TYRE , with the map set to the greatest magnification , so I could choose from the faintest lines on the map . Thus , every turn was a crapshoot , every road a wonderful surprise , which often had Philstrom and I shouting with glee in our helmets .
We crossed at Kingston , on the Wolfe Island ferry , and travelled briskly on the slowest route possible .
If I recall , Phil , with his injured ankle ( not my fault - HE chose that day's route ) , only declined one road - south of Port Perry , where the pavement became a goat track , and disappeared into the forest .

Alex

Not all my lucid moments are consecutive .
