NEW DATE: Bancroft, Ontario Meet and Greet **Sunday April 29, 2018**

The Road Toads Annual Bancroft Meet and Greet is Sunday April 29th this year.

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.

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.) Others coming from other areas will likely meet up elsewhere (and hopefully will post their meeting location in this thread.)

Here is Google Maps Street View of the Timmies in Port Perry: https://goo.gl/maps/Xnb5i6Xh2BF2


As we get closer I'll setup a poll to see how many will be coming so we can let Bancroft Eatery & Brew Pub know how many to expect for lunch.

Any and all bikes and riders are welcome!

..Tom

Awesome.
New/Used bike acquired, and at the moment, I'm off that weekend too.
I'm going to see if my nephew on his KLR wants to come as well.

Thanks Tom.

So far the schedule is clear for me, and I hope it stays that way so I can get out.
Thanks for organizing Tom.

I don't think it makes sense to have two organized events in our little neck of the woods so close together.
Personally, I'd rather just go to Bancroft for Tom's lunch.

And I just started a new job, so riding is going to be a pretty low priority for me this year.

But maybe a new thread can be started up to arrange something in June or July.

I agree Shane. I'll be there for "Tom's Lunch Run" on the 29th, then Romney W.V. on May 18-20 and NEVA which will be in Gravenhurst this year in July.

....So, June is wide open....other than Fathers' Day weekend of course!

Hi,
I haven't posted much here, but I've been on the Canadian OC Facebook page... I'm from Niagara Falls, but I'm looking to ride to either Montreal or North Bay that weekend and this isn't too far out of the way on the return from either, so I think I'll try to pop by and say hello!

Hoping spring finally shows up by then!
-Dan

I think that not every Stromtrooper in our little neck of the woods is going to Bancroft to have a lunch so why not to have a ride week after that?
