    Is this an official ODSC event? I had held off on my first year of membership given the cancellation of this years rides, and was going to jump in next year. That being said, I would be more than happy to contribute if this is the case. Thanks, and looking forward to meeting the gang.

    Sure, it's a semi official event: we have held a late season event like this for the past 15 years at least. Don't worry about getting a membership this late in the season, you can just pay $10 as a non-member at the ride. I will post more ride details tomorrow.

    As mentioned in the top post we will be hosting the Super Sunday on October 4th 2020.

    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. Due to Covid we cannot rent the hall this year but we can use the parking lot as our staging area. The building will be locked so no bathroom facilities for us to use.

    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. Two years ago 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. Novices riding on street tires should probably wait for another ride to get exposed to riding with the ODSC. Knobbies will get through the ride no problem.

    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. Because of Covid we will eat lunch somewhere along the trail (not in a restaurant), so bring your own lunch.

    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.

    More details will be published closer to the date.

    Please post your intentions here so we have an idea of the group size. We may have to limit the number of riders according to provincial limits on group sizes. See you all out there!

    I'm down. Based on how cold is that day I will either ride the BMW or trailer the Husqvarna. Look forward to it

    Awesome! I am going to try and be there. Might have a non member buddy come along too.
    Been watching for another group ride. The last one was a blast.

    There is a gas station and variety store 1 km south of Walsingham at the corner of hwy's #59 & #24. Please be ready to ride at 10:00. Please have your gas tank full.
    I have not rode the entire route so I can't give anyone a total distance or total time but my estimate is around 200 Km's and with a couple stops perhaps we will be 5 hr's. Maybe longer if too many people decide to lay down for a bit.
    Also we will be playing follow the leader so that tends to slow things down a little as riders have to make sure who ever is behind them see's them turn the next corner.
    Let's hope for good weather.

    I'm riding the Kawasaki. It's feeling lonely and needs to get out for a good run. And this way it's easier to keep my speed down when leading.
