Mid Movember Muskoka Monday

The weather looks to be really nice this coming Monday - sunny and maybe a high of around 15! So this will probably be the last of the long rides for me this year.

If anyone wants to join, I'm planning on hitting up Southwood Rd, Peninsula Rd, McDougall/Hurdville Rd, Bunny Trail, 520, 518, Swords Rd, 141, Butter n Eggs, and Coopers Falls Rd.

Meeting spot: Innisfil Beach Rd at the Tim's/Shell just east of Hwy 400 - leaving at 9am.
Lunch: Packing a lunch to save time and screaming heads in Midlothian looks like the perfect place to stop for lunch!
Route: Google Maps says about 7.5hrs and 550km - round trip to Innisfil.
Pace: Fun in the corners and responsible everywhere else (not for new riders).

Here's a rough route: https://goo.gl/maps/KNSZmXvoFH82

I'm coming from Mississauga and prefer to not be riding in the dark, in rush hour traffic, after a long ride.
If anyone interested wants to meet up earlier so we can finish earlier, I can be at Innisfil as early as 8am.

Cheers!

nice plan

I won't make it but do have a great day. Ride safely, maybe even slow down a bit, eh.
Thanks for posting the idea.

Thanks. I'm looking forward to it and checking out some spots I have not been to in a while. It will be a long day but a good way to wind down the season.

Have a wonderful time! I wish I could ride with you,
but I am many many kilometers to the south.
I enjoyed October in Ontario, and saw lots of
colourful leaves, but now I am in Sarasota FL,
where the license plates change color about now.

Best wishes,
Keith

Would have been good to have you along. There is always the annual spring ride to count on.

As for tomorrow, I'll check back tonight around 11pm. If anyone does want to come I can still meet up at the meetup spot as late as 9am or earlier if it works for you.

But, if no one posts up that they are definitely in by 11pm tonight, then I will still head out, but I'm going to leave about an hour earlier to maximize daylight.

Cheers!

Great - We are going to meet up at a Tim's on Weston Rd @ 401 at around 7:30. Can you make it to the Innisfil Shell a bit earlier? We should be there around 8:15?
Sent you my cell # too and I'm on a orange 650 w/ orange helmet.
Cheers!
