    I will be going on the rail trail this Wednesday June 23rd 2021. Will be leaving Cambridge at 9:00 am and start the trail around ( edit 11:00 am ). This ride is suitable for any size bike with a street legal plate. Will plan to have lunch in Port Elgin.

    Please indicate your intentions to ride. I will post more details tonight once my daughter is done using my computer for schooling and have more than a little phone to type on :rolleyes:.

    I'll watch for your "more details" Michel, but I will probably join you.

    I will start the ride at the trail head at 11:00 am Wednesday June 23. The location is just North West of Clifford on Huron-Bruce Road, just South of highway 9; it’s easy to find.

    This is suitable for all size bikes with a blue plate. Must be OFTR member to ride this trail. Please show up fuelled up and ready to go.

    The forecast is looking perfect riding, should be a good day!

    Great ride yesterday: perfect weather, not too much dust and covered lots of kilometres on the trails. There are so many fun gravel roads to ride on…We took a look at the burned out rail bridge in Paisley: it may not be a total loss, the bridge structure didn’t burn, only the top surface. Hopefully it can be repaired and not torn down.

    Thanks to John for showing us around!

    Does anyone know the state of the rail bridge and if there are plans for its' future?

    Nothing yet, too soon.

    On a related note, the club execs voted on making a donation to the Paisley volunteer fire department. I have been trying to contact them for a few weeks without success so far. Since the ODSC is a regular user of the rail trail we would like to help; I will keep trying.

    Does anyone know if they are still selling day passes to ride the Bruce Rail Trail?? I seem to recall this was an option in the past.

    No pass required but you must be OFTR member to ride it. Enjoy
