Ontario ride this Sunday? (Aug 24th)

Anyone interested in a ride? I'm in the early stages of putting together a route. Nothing too serious, probably just some of the old favorites North of here.

So, I made up 3 different routes. They are all about the same length but some are shorter, timewise, as they use more of the 400 to get North.

This is the full, long route.

You're in K-W country, home of Zdeno Cycle.

http://www.zdenocycle.ca/

"Zdenos is one of the largest tire dealers in Canada. We stock such a wide range of brands and sizes, over 3000 tires on the shelf at any one time, that other dealers buy their tires from us! We carry Dunlop, Michelin, Bridgestone, Avon, Pirelli, Metzler, Continental, Maxxis, plus brands and designs that you've haven't even heard of yet, including all the hard-to-find sizes. Our everyday deep discount prices, MINIMUM 25% DISCOUNT ON ALL IN-STOCK TIRES, means that you won't get a better deal no matter where you go. Give Al a call for availability and prices, we know you'll be pleasantly surprised!"

They'll slap a new rear hoop on that puppy faster than you can pull out your VISA. It only hurts for a little while (I'm on my 3rd rear for this season....OUCH!).

I'd love to join you but I have already made plans to wisk the little lady off to Niagara Falls. I value my life too much to cancel on her.

I only get my bike tomorrow evening, and I'm still a new rider (in Canada at least) so I'm going to learn the bike first, get some more solo experience then hopefully before the season ends, get a few group rides under my belt...for which I think I am going to need to find a pretty forgiving group !!

Sounds good. As we get closer to the day we can decide on meeting place and time. Gonna depend on how big a group we have.

Wow, I figured you to be a "for sure".

How was the end of the PA adventure?
