I'll be leaving, with couple of friends, from Toronto this coming Friday (June 7-th).10 am. Meeting point Tim Horton at Weston Rd and 401. On the way to Combermere we plan to hit Rd. 35 some off road trails, 507, Elephant Rd & Peterson Rd. To name few. Accommodation - Stevenson Lodge in Combermere ON. I've already talked to the owner and there is no need for reservation. Cabins are available and they charge just over $30 per person, per night. We hope to get there around 4-5 pm. The plan for Saturday is to ride The Highlands. Mostly 500 series roads including 508 (Calabogie Rd.) & 511 plus some gravel and fire roads. Departure time 10-10.30 in the morning from Tim Horton in Barry's Bay, what should work for you guys from Ottawa if you want to come just for Saturday riding (or for GTA riders if you leave Toronto early morning). After exploring beautiful roads of Highlands around 4-5 pm we will be having lunch/dinner in Tavern Restaurant in Wilno. After that you still have enough time to go back home or to stay overnight and go back next day. Anybody interested in joining us please confirm your attendance and location you choosing to meet with us. Oh yes - did I mention that seems like this weekend we are going to have a perfect weather for riding? Hope to see you guys and have a good time riding together.

Have a great trip! For how long are you going? Alone or with company?

daytime highs are around 6-9c most days, so I shouldn't completely freeze shut
