Ghost Towns Ride May Long Weekend

Hi Guys,

As I noticed there seems to be quite a bit of interest in checking out these abandoned places I finally decided to make some time for a ride. The details are yet to come, but I have compiled a list of 4-5 Ghost Towns west of Simcoe, south of Georgian Bay (north of Orangeville) that should make the ride fun but not overly complicated for a first outing. I am going to focus on the logistics (hiking, route, locations, info) but would love some help if somebody with more experience with group rides could co-lead this trip. Please let me know ASAP if you can commit to this job.

While at it, could we take a quick vote on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday ride? I am thinking of meeting at Square One at 10AM. Please reply with your interest/commitment in this thread, and enter the day preference in this doodle (you can select multiple days if they all work for you):

******** PLEASE FILL THIS OUT ********

I would lock the day in by this Wednesday so we can all commit and make arrangements.

PS. Tentative list of destinations:

Have you decided on which one you plan on going to?
What do you want the co-lead do?

I can help if nobody wants to. You will have to tell me the route

I'm down! Do you have a route planned, for those of us that may not make it can venture off on our own?

Hi all,
Weather seems to be good and Saturday seems like the right day to do this. I say we meet Saturday at 10AM (let me know if you prefer earlier or later) at the Chapters' at Sq. One in Mississauga. Since it's few of us, we can convene on a preferred route together on Sat morning. Please confirm that you are coming and PM me your phone number and email - I'll reply with those details.

My schedule's super touch-n-go for the time being, but PM enroute!

I ride a GS500 (2nd bike) so as far as pace goes, I abide by speed limits for the most part. I am not sure about any off-roading but my front fork is crap for that. There will be some walking involved (aka. hiking) but Ontario is not known for its mountains. I expect a couple hundred meters to be involved. I personally would try to avoid freeways for the most part as they tend to be sort of boring on a motorbike when sticking to speed limits. However, jutting out of town on 410 should not be a problem. I don't think we'll be taking 400.

Please confirm by tonight (so I can let everyone know if the deal is off).
 
This looks pretty fun, I would definitely be interested, would like to know more info soon though. Despite the cold, I'm down if you're down!

I plan to be there(leave without me if I'm not or if I'm late, I don't like holding people up). Probably more reasonable than the Maine trip I had planned for this weekend. Does chapters have a parking lot at square one?

You guys don't ride like bandits, I hope.
