    Just finalizing the Falls Tour for April.

    There are 18 waterfalls, only 3 straight roads (longer than 2 km), 1 Great Lake, and 9 ascents or descents of the Escarpment. It's clocking in at 199 km (Campbellville to Burlington...normally a 20 minute drive).

    I'm examining how to get group access to all the waterfalls, so stand by on that one. It will be totally big bike friendly, in fact, you can negotiate all of it on a street bike. (But don't forget your kick stand support if it's "soggy" out). There will be multiple bail points, fuel stops won't be an issue, and as many Timmy's as you can possibly tolerate (since the first one was created in Hamilton). Depending on group turnout, we'll try to have a few minutes at each waterfall. We'll have to see how that goes.

    Hello All!
    I’m Tom, a new member, 32-years old based out of Shelburne. Looking forward to coming out to some rides when the wife and kids allow me to. I’ve been trail riding a MX bike for about 10 years, got my M2 and first blue plated bike about 6 months ago to legitimize my fun!

    OH, man, Tom! You are our hero!

    Do you know how many times we pass around/through/over Shelburne on our rides?

    Now we have a place to put the feet up, have a cold beer, power wash our bikes, maybe do a little laundry, top up the tank, and camp out, if need be...I mean if you don't have a spare room or two.

    Welcome to the ODSC.

    Haha @brucedwilson I figured I was in a hotspot, especially for the Orangeville-Creemore tour. I’m sure you’ll all find the sleeping arrangements in my garage just as comfortable as I do when I annoy my wife haha. Concrete pillows and beer blankets!

    I knew I lived in a good area for DS riding as I’m forever crossing paths with you folks when I’m touring in my truck. Last year I setup a “No Exit” tour with my Toyota buddies, and every 10km or so we’d get passed by DS riders, whom made me very jealous haha. Areas like “the waterfall” on First Line just NE of Honeywood, The Orchard (closed now) in Hornings Mills and the Garden of Eden are all spots I frequent on 4-wheels, quite looking forward to a new perspective.

    We’ve only been stuck in the snow, but not on 5th line.
