On Sunday July 16, I'm going to head out for a long ride up to Calabogie to enjoy the really long daylight. Planning on hitting up lots of the best roads northeast of Peterborough, including Northey's Bay, Lower Faraday, Elephant Lake, 508, 511, South Lavant, 509, and much more.
Start: Leaving Mississauga at 6am to beat any cottage traffic heading east. I'm open to meeting up along the way if anyone is interested to join.
Meeting Spot: Port Hope for 7:30am - https://goo.gl/maps/ysbvikK98tH2
- This is at the Tim Hortons and there is a Petro Canada gas station close by for fuel.
Finish: Port Perry Tim's for around 6pm. I expect to be back in Mississauga around 8pm after the westbound rush hour is over. It will be a long day, but I take a break every 2 hours or so.
Lunch: I'll pack a lunch & snacks and take breaks beside lakes & rivers or something nice and scenic, to save time from long sit down stops.
Pace: I ride responsible on the straights, respectful in small towns and fun in the corners. I ride a V-Strom 650. If you've ridden with me before, it's the same sort of deal.
This isn't a ride for new riders as there are a good number of twisty roads. This isn't a ride for hooligans as I want to keep my license. This will be a long day at a decent pace!
- this is what I have in mind right now. Should be around 1000km give or take and only paved roads.
If anyone is interested, post up or PM.
