Group rides

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I was wondering if anybody is interested in group rides around Southern Ontario? I haven't seen any topics or threads on this...
I saw already 2 riders from Brampton, 1-2 from Mississauga, there are other 2 in Burlington on the forum map.
I would be open to the idea, weather permitting, after work, some farmland sightseeing or coffee hops from THs to THs.

Great to see you already created the post. I was about to create one. 
I am a new rider in Canada so I am taking it slow right now. I don't ride to work yet. The only time I get out is on weekends. I usually go towards the Forks of Credit and adjacent areas. I try to keep off the highways since I don't like to keep riding 100+ all the time and moreover without the windscreen it is a struggle to remain on the bike. lol. I love riding in the country side, with twisty, open, scenic routes. I will share some routes today once I get some time in my office.
 
I am not sure about this weekend since I have guests coming over. Maybe on Sunday I might get a chance. Nevertheless, let's keep planning some group rides or TH meet-ups before the end of this riding season.

Nice, I am away this weekend too. I took 403 today, first time highway, boy, is this a fast bike ! I didnt even realize I was doing 130+ on the ramp where the 403 meets 407 eastbound, i freaked out. I simply didnt feel it, on this bike, all my previous bikes would scream at that speed. I slowed down and learned the lesson.
Wind is kinda unbearable at that speed, and I find the wind noise very bad, I wonder if it is my helmet or this is the way it is on the naked bikes..

Hey guys if you are free, next Wednesday (June 22) there is a meet at Appleby Crossing (Corsa Motocicletta) from 6-9 in Burlington. I plan on doing a short group ride around 4 then heading over to there. You guys are more then welcome to join. It will be a easy pace ride around the area. Let me know who ever is interested. If you can't make the ride you should try to make the event. It will be fun.
