Thumbs up

I will put the date on my calendar. I know plenty of back roads if there is a desire for some. Route looks fine to me.

Sounds like a great way to clear the cobwebs from the long winter. I would be interested in joining up for the ride.

Yeah, I'm interested. Closer to home than either St. Jerome or Barrie, which I was also considering for that weekend. Out and back the same day makes this the ride of choice for me, this year anyway.

A bit of gravel or dirt road would make it even nicer. I know a little stretch or two. Vstrompaul knows many. (But, I'll go with the consensus on this).

Oh, my cobwebs got blown away nicely today. Nice ride, barely wet at all; but we never saw the promised 14 degrees either.
