Bancroft (Ontario) this Sunday (May 14th, 2017)

A few of us are meeting in Bancroft this Sunday May 14th. If any of you want to meet for a bite and to say hello we would be happy to see you!

We would meet noonish at the "Bancroft Eatery and Brew Pub".

I plan on leaving the Port Perry Timmies on 7A at 9am if you want to ride along..

Thanks,

Tom

12 with chance of a shower? 1-2 mm?

A lot nicer than the rain I rode in every day last week!

Your definition of "nicer" is dodgy

The best days for riding are those with a chance of showers. It keeps the fair weather riders off the roads

Have a great ride Tom - I would come, but I have a prior commitment.

I don't see how.. forecasting 1-2 mm seems much nicer than 20 to 40 mm.

How is that dodgy?

I'm heading up with my friend Bruce regardless.. is anyone else (Apart for Macdoc) considering heading up? After lunch I'm heading over to my Mom's in Wilberforce so not looking at this being a day ride but rather a bit of lunch with one or more friends.

Port Dover for perch sounds a bit more appealing

sorry I won't make Bancroft this year

I just got home this afternoon from the Romney event. I stretched it into 11 riding days, many wet and cold, but enjoyable.

Maybe perch is more appealing but not the route there...
