Bancroft Meet Sunday April 7 2013

Some of us are heading up to Bancroft on our Annual meet up on a new date Sunday April 14th, weather permitting (ie if there isn't too much ice and snow!) That is the Sunday after Easter. We normally meet at Thomas Oliver's Pub at noon but that is too be confirmed

Please note the location is the same but the name of the restaurant has changed. It is now:

South Algonquin Eatery & Pub
4 Bridge W, Bancroft, 613-332-3450

New owners, new name, new staff, new menu; but of course better food at good prices. I've checked and the place will be open and looking forward to having us, and all of our gear.

We (the Road Toads) have done this several years now and hope that you can join us! The location is on the northwest side of Highway 28 and highway 62 in Bancroft.

Here is a link to a Google Map StrView (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 is the one at the extreme East end of Port Perry on highway 7a on the North side near lake Scugog.

Here is Google Maps Street View:

It's quite possible that some might want to ride around afterwards but again this isn't an organized ride, just a great meet and greet where you can tell your exaggerated stories to a willing audience.

If you are planning on coming please mention in this thread so we can let Thomas Oliver's know how many to expect for lunch.

Any and all bikes and riders are welcome!


(Yes some of the above we copied and pasted from Last Year's meet. This isn't the Annual Barrie Spring Ride.)

2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 200,000+ km, 125,000 miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

So long as I get my new heated gear and controller installed before then I'll be mighty pleased to join you, as usual.

And there's a few new roads that I'd like to try... :biggrinjester:

I would definitely be interested in joining if I purchase a Strom by then.

If not I'd still be interested in joining with my current ride.

My best advice to any young person is to write down the top ten things you want in a partner, then become that person.
