I'm coming up on the weekend of the 9th to spend a couple weeks in the Orleans area. I'm trailering my bike up to do some riding with a good buddy of mine from Stittsville who runs a Veradero. I was going to post up and see if there was anything going on while I was there so this is perfect timing.

Keep me in the loop!!:hurray:

Calabogie Area Back Roads Ride

I have posted in the past for Stromtroopers to do some back roads rides but did not get any takers. I have many routes with excellent options. I live in Pakenham and ride to the west all the time. I have put a fair number of Km's of gravel / dirt road riding on my Strom and would be happy to run a little workshop for people wanting more experience. Lean angles / tire pressures / braking etc.. Not that I am an expert but part of my 35 years in the saddle has included a circumnavigation of Australia when the top 1/2 was not paved and just recently a Trans Lab trip.

Let me know if people are interested and we can set a date for the weekend of July 9th. That or I can tag along on someone else's route. It will be stock tire friendly and ridden at speeds that are safe and comfortable for all. Paul

I'd love to tag along if you've got room for another. I've done the Calabogie loop a few times on my new wee (love the 511 route). Some new roads would be a nice change.

Sunday July 10th Ride

OK Sunday it is. I have a route in mind that I will scout out tomorrow for distance, conditions, rest stops, food etc. I have ridden almost all the roads before. I will track it and see if I can send it via e-mail to folks who have GPS.

I will start a separate post on the ride. Meet in Almonte at the Tim Hortons.
Say a 10am departure. Gather at 9:30 or at 9:00 am for a breakfast chat.

Right now I have us heading up back concessions to Pakenham, Cedar Hill Rd / Bellamy / California Rd / New Rd / Little Green / Campbells / winding south to Dalhousie / back to Poland / Hopetown / Clayton / Bennies Corners / Blakeney / Almonte. Lots of Options to extend or shorten.
