Bancroft Meet and Greet April 13, 2014

The Annual Bancroft Meet and Greet is April 13th this year.

We will meet at noon at the South Algonquin Eatery And Pub (it used to be Thomas Oliver's Pub.) The location is on the northwest side or Highway 28 and highway 62 in Bancroft.

Here is a link to a Google Map Stret view (zoom out to get a sense of the location.)

This is not an organized ride, but rather a meet up. Some of us will meet at 9am at the Tim Horton's in Port Perry and ride up. This Timmies is the one at the extreme East end of Port Perry on highway 7a on the North side near lake Scugog.

Here is Google Maps Street View:

If you are planning on coming please mention in this thread so we can let
South Algonquin Eatery And Pub know how many to expect for lunch.

Any and all bikes and riders are welcome!

..Tom

To confirm, are the addresses as follows?
  1. Tim's, 1889 Scugog Street, Port Perry, ON, and
  2. SAE&P at 4 Bridge Street West, Bancroft, ON

I am sure about the eatery, but not the Tim's location. To join you I will have to be on the road shortly after 0730, and at that time of day I do not want to be thinking any more than is strictly necessary...

Might be able to swing it, depending on work and kid.


Duncan, if you're cool with it, we can ride over together.

I'm in , can't be any colder than it was last year ... that is , if the glaciers retreat enough for me to get the bike out of the basement and up the hill !

"Can't be any colder..." are you sure about that?

I know that feeling! Pretty much everry day for me!

Both of your adresses are correct. In both cases they are at the North West side of the intersections.
