    I know it's only January but I've had an unexpected and very speedy recovery on my left ankle injury - thought I'd be in a cast and crutches until March following my surgery but now I've been "let out early on good behaviour" and am starting to walk so all I can think about is the upcoming riding season. I heard that this year's Bethany will offer new challenges, give us something to dream about while we wait out the cold :)

    Lots of new ground to be covered in this years event. We will venture west of the starting location for a section I've nick named "The Western Warm Up". We will also head a little south to complete a loop around Mosport. Look for some interesting challenges in the way of hills to climb and some new road allowances to explore.

    The Adv route will be significantly revised as well.

    We will have to see what the weather holds for us this winter (yes we still have at least two months of winter left). With some luck it will be dry in early April so we can pre-ride the new route.

    If anyone has some knowledge of the roads in the area that were not on last years ride..now is the time!

    Looking forward to the 2017 version - let's try and keep the loop one way!?

    Would like to join this ride this year but would be coming solo. Is there generally a group to tag along with? Thanks.

    There has never been any shortage of bundling solo riders or simply tacking into other groups. Don't worry, you won't be alone.

    We will soon post the advertisement and sign up details for this event. You will be able to register online via a web site called "live laps" which is regularly used by clubs for this purpose.

    Look for the announcement in late feb early march. There will be a new adv route this year as well as some fun added events for all.

    I wasn't there last year but the two years I went, I was solo. I had no trouble meeting people and riding with a group. If I can get another bike I will be trying to make it this year.

    Well I just picked up a dr650. Some of you may remember the "vanilla ice" klr250 I was on a few years back. Look forward to joining the ride again.
