I'm going to head up to Bancroft on April 2nd assuming no snow and ice issue. I can't go on the 9th as I will be in Mexico (destination Wedding) and the following weekend is Easter.

I would happily go up the 23rd as well.

Oh. THAT Spring Ride.
I was hoping to hear about the ride from Barrie to Muskoka.
Enjoy Bancroft.

I was looking forward to the spring ride North of Whistler through Pemberton, and on to Cache Creek, on the Duffy Lake Road. >:)

Mayhaps even a province name in the title?

We used to put a province name in the thread titles, but now that there is a Vancouver thread or Victoria something something, pretty much everything else is about Ontario.

I'll try to make it out to one of these spring time rides.

Are there details on this Spring Ride? One day? Hotel? Route? Only people named Tom?

We still have 2 feet of snow in Ottawa so it better warm up quick if Bancroft is to be rideable.

I flew over Thunder Bay and Soo and Sudbury yesterday, which was the first day of spring, and the ground looked plenty white to me. If enough snow melts to make the land dark, it will absorb radiation and warm, in a cumulative manner (the faster it goes, the faster it goes). The whiteness went all the way south to Lake Ontario, and past it until clouds hid the ground.

The day before that, I had an outdoor family picnic at Granville Island in Vancouver, so winter may be over out there.

But for Ontario and Pennsylvania, it appears that Punxsutawney Phil foresaw extended chilliness with uncommon acumen.

Best wishes for the expedition to Bancroft.
