Bancroft, Ontario Meet and Greet(s) April 2nd

There will be (at least!) two meet ups in Bancroft this spring.

Sunday April 2nd and tentatively May 13th. (The May 13th is Mother's Day so I could see the date changing.)

It will be the same as last year for meeting place and time so I will cut and paste Last Year's details below.

Please note this is not a ride, but rather a Meet and Great. Some people will meet at different places and ride together. I don't expect a huge amount of people for April 2 as for many it is early in the season but assuming the weather isn't horrible I know the most devoted, skilled, best looking, smartest, best riders would show on April 2nd.

..Tom

---------------------------------------------

We will meet at noon at the Bancroft Eatery & Brew Pub (used to be South Algonquin Eatery And Pub and before that 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 Street 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.)

If you are planning on coming please let us know in this thread so we can let
Bancroft Eatery & Brew Pub know how many to expect for lunch.

Any and all bikes and riders are welcome!

I'm still planning on coming up for this - weather looks to be great!
I might meet you folks in Port Perry for 9am, or go for a ride before and meet up in Bancroft.

I'll be missing this one. Working Sunday.

Enjoy the ride and get-together folks.

Looks like a decent day on Sunday.


Hopefully the rain washes away the salt (for those of you worried that your bike will instantly fall apart into a ball of rust at the first sign of salt. )
