Things are really starting to take shape for the RFS 2012 in Tudhope Park.
One MAJOR change this year is the parade. Due to the major expense and challenges of having the ride leave Toronto on saturday morning, we have moved the Parade to Orillia. The kick off location is just 10 minutes from the park and we are planning a (approx) 90 minute parade route that will take us through many of the towns and circle back into the park. Great news for all of us that usually get up and head down to Toronto. We get to sleep in a bit this year!
I'll post up most details as they become available.
Ride for Sight Announces New Kick-Off Location!
This year, Ride for Sight’s Kick-Off Motorcycle Parade will depart from Orillia’s Lakehead University – just a short distance from the main event venue at Tudhope Park.
Over the past few years, it has become more and more challenging to maneuver the massive Ride for Sight parade out of Toronto’s city limits. As our participation continues to grow, it is the perfect time to move the parade route out of the downtown traffic and on to the beautiful, open roads surrounding Orillia.
Leaving from Lakehead University on Saturday, June 16th at 10 a.m. sharp, the police-escorted parade will take riders along some of the prettiest roads in Orillia cottage country, before arriving at the main event in Tudhope Park.
With the route located in and around the event site, parade riders who usually come for Saturday’s celebrations can now join us for all of the fun and entertainment on Friday, without having to make the long highway ride to the Kick-Off point on Saturday morning, like in prior event years.
We encourage all riders to join us on Friday and make Ride for Sight 2012 a full-weekend experience! For those still joining us on Saturday, parade registration and a light breakfast (for all parade riders) will be available at 8:00 a.m.
