    Once again we will be hosting the hosting the St-Williams Super Sunday, the date is Sept 29th 2019.

    The ride will start from the Walsingham town hall at the intersection of Hwy 59 and 6th Concession, south of Langton.
    Coordinates are: N42 40.6 W080 31.6

    This is a DS tour of Norfolk County back roads, allowances and some trails suitable for Big dogs on knobby tires. The trail sections can be bypassed.

    This is a fun and scenic DS ride for riders of all skill levels. Last year we had a GS 1200 on slicks complete the route, almost anything can be done on any bike with careful balance and judicious use of throttle.

    Our local guide in Norfolk County, Rick, has been busy laying an interesting route through the area. The route will be about 170 km total with a gas stop around the 100 km mark. Lunch will be in Turkey Point.

    Ride sign-in will be from 9:00 to 10:00 am and we will depart at 10:00. Please be ready to ride, gassed up, geared up and tires aired down.

    Cost is free to ODSC members and $10 for non-members. We will have coffee and doughnuts available during sign-in.

    More details will be published closer to the date.

    Please post your intentions here so we have an idea of the group size. See you all out there!

    Michel

    Rick will be able to answer that after the final route pre-ride. But it shouldn't be too late as it is only about 170 km this year...

    Rick will be better suited to answer that. I'm waiting for him to chime in here.

    For those waiting for a GPS route to be posted, I have some bad news: due to time constraints, there was no time to do a full pre-ride. But the ride will go ahead, Rick has the whole route in his head! The good news is we won't be distracted by silly gizmos while riding, we can just follow the leader and enjoy the scenery in all its splendor. Weather is looking fine at this point, perfect fall riding conditions.

    The hall will be opened around 8:30 Sunday morning; with sign-in from 9 - 10:00 am

    See you all Sunday

    Pre-ride is done. Trails are looking good. This year is a little shorter than other years. More trails blocked off and bridge closures makes it hard to justify cruising lots of pavement for short trail hops. So instead we tried to utilize as much of what we do have and cut out 75 Km's of pavement.
    We don't have a GPS track so it will be follow the leader this year. Gas stop will be at 105 Km's. Lunch at Turkey Point hotel.
    Please come with full tank. There is a gas station 1 km south of Walsingham. The hall will be open for before and after. It has washrooms.
    Bring the whole family. St Williams trails are only 2 Km's away with lots of parking for larger trailers. It has some easier trails for learning on but be prepared for some sand.
    See you Sunday!
