Well it looks like you can travel to your favourite excercise riding spot.
Of course you can! We are all in this together right?
I believe having the right answers when questioned is the key to avoiding trouble, thanks for posting Don.
I will mention that over the last "stay at home order" I had traveled north to do some ice fishing (exercise) and there were police doing ride programs checking vehicle traffic on a couple of major arteries and asking questions regarding the purpose of my trip.
Just because they "can't" stop you doesn't mean they won't.
Stay safe out there guys, and use your best judgement.
The OPP was out on Old Wagon Road today. They pulled me over (they were on ATVs) on Black River Road.
They were just checking that my bike was blue plated, asked to see my insurance slip. No talk about stay at home or whatever.
Further down the road I saw some guys unloading green plated bikes so I warned them the coppers were out.
So is the falls tour still on if we maintain social distance? |It is still a form of exercising.
Hi Faze man. Given the lockdown situation the club cancelled the organized ride, it’s unfortunate but necessary.
You can ride the route yourself of course for your own fitness. I think I will sometime next week. Can’t ride in a group but riding solo is still fun.
yes, its too bad. oh well, solo riding it is
I know the ride is cancelled but was the gps route ever posted?
It wasn't posted. We can't as it would be traceable back to the club if things went south. I'm thinking if you travel from Campbellville to Waterdown and stay west of the Guelph Line, then hug the escarpment down Snake Rd. to Christie Lake to Sulphur Springs to Sherman Falls, you're pretty much duplicating the route.
I have the gps files from 2018. Has the route changed much since then?
Honestly, hardly at all. It may show Niagara area as part of it. I shortened it quite a bit this year...the issue is whether or not there's a lot of time taken up with visiting the Hamilton-area falls. The other option is to head to directly from Stoney Creek and the Punch Bowl to Dunnville/Port Maitland and come up the west bank of the Grand too as a return loop. It's still a lot of pavement. But there are gravelly bits.
I can confirm there will be Steel Bridges tour to kick off our semi open ride season. This ride will take place this Sat with the starting point at Puslinch. This will provide access to the usual crowd from the East as the meeting point is just off 401 Cambridge exit. This year, we will reverse the route.
I will be posting more details tomorrow . We will have some new variations to our rides this year due to the covid restrictions but rest assured we have been working to enhance our rides with the quite times provided. We will have some interesting rides to offer as restrictions permit. Stay tuned.
