    You will need an OFTR membership for the D/S or Aggressive Ride.
    OFTR sections can be bypassed on the D/S ride.


    Please arrive gassed and ready to go.
    The meet point is just north or Orangeville.
    Gas up on your way through.
    Lots of places for breakfast in town and two good breakfast places just north of mono plaza (Barbs Country Kitchen , seen on the food network) and the Nifty Nook.

    Lunch stop is Creemore, there are a number of Restaurants in the town . Riders are on their own for lunch.

    After lunch return to mono plaza via GPS route.

    There will be no sweep riders on this ride.

    This is a GPS route. While I’m the ride organizer, there is no official ride leader. Riders typically break up into smaller groups and ride together. Single riders typically have no trouble hooking up with a group to ride with. Usually based on ability or bike size.

    From memory last year there were 3 routes, Adventure, Dual Sport and Aggressive. Is this the same this year? I may be interested in the ADV route this year and just doodle along on the Vstrom as I am still recovering from a bad shoulder injury.

    Routes will get posted. Usually riders get together at the start point. Ones without gps will join a group. It seems to always sort itself out.

    If you are new the sport and are on the fence go out to this ride! Great area for riding in, with a good mix to get your feet wet on.

    Looking forward to this ride. Is it okay to park a truck for the day at the start location. A buddy and I are coming up from south of kitchener and don’t really want to do the ride up and back on the bikes.

    Also we’ll be looking to join up with someone on the aggressive loop if possible.

    Yes, that is about it. If you have an Oftr membership the route will go through some SCF tracts. We also have some singletrack for bikes under 500 cc

    I am an OFTR-SCORRA member and I wanted to go on this ride. If I pre-pay the $10 by paypal, can I get a copy of the gpx for the 2018 Aggressive ride (to the extent that it is different from the 2015 Aggressive ride?
