Labour Day Weekend Ride - Frontenac Region

I have never been on these roads near Kingston and want to check them out. I'm riding out of Mississauga, so this will be a full day for me - maybe 12 hours and 1000km, unless I pitch a tent in the area the night before. If you have ridden with me before - you know what to expect.

Date: Most likely Saturday, September 3rd.

Meeting Spot: 8am - probably in Kaladar at the Shell station. Unless I camp near Kaladar the night before (and pass by Calabogie on the way), I can meet up earlier with anyone along my route to the area and would leave Mississauga around 6am - or maybe a bit earlier to hit up a nice road or two on the way to Kaladar.

Pace: Fun in corners and responsible/respectful everywhere else.

Lunch: Pack a lunch/snacks and we'll find nice spots to eat by lakes or rivers. No plans to stop at a sit down restaurant.

Route: Since I have never been on these roads, I can not vouch for the road quality of any of them. I'm on street tires, so no intentional gravel here. Google Maps only allows a certain number of points, so the route is in 2 parts - totaling about 7.5 hours, plus time getting to and from the area. I'm hoping to have gas every 200km or so, but I don't know the area... If you want the GPX file of the route, send me your email address.
Part 1: https://goo.gl/maps/ih6aYHg2xmL2 - about 3hrs - starting in Kaladar
Part 2: https://goo.gl/maps/A7WiaZ2jZNy - about 4.5hrs - finishing in Kaladar

If you are interested or have suggestions, PM or post up.
Cheers!

Your going to enjoy Desert Lake Rd, and Battersea Rd from south of Battersea to Jones Falls is very entertaining. Enjoy both have a few rough technical pieces. Enjoy

Shut up and ride!!

Sweet, thanks guys. I think I'm going to take the Friday off and ride around Calabogie on my way to pitch a tent at Desert Lake Campground. I hope the weather cooperates.
