A group of us go riding on Saturdays (a few klr's are usually there FYR), mostly light offroad trails and dirt road type of terrain. We normally leave from Merrickville or Carelton Plave depending on the route. If this thread is alive I will post prior to the weekend for those who are new to the area or for those who arent but are looking for someone to ride with. Tick tock, 3 months till riding season starts up, look forward to seeing you folks again

Thanks Deadly. Id love to explore that neck of the woods. This thread will be tucked away and ready to be activated when the time is right
Speaking of time, I thumped up and down my street with the bike today. I actually made 2nd gear (as opposed to my first ride in the backyard, pic included) and washed the front tire out.

Out in Renfrew here, usually get out to do some good riding and know most of the roads around Renfrew, Eganville, Bancroft areas. I tend to avoid the usual bike roads (like Calbogie to Grifith) because they start to look like a wasp-nest in the summer there are so many bikes. Prefer to be out on the roads where no one else is. I am planning on organizing a pavement - mostly gravel ride some weekend that will do a big loop starting somewhere around Arnprior and cover about 400-500km.

I'll Let everyone know when I've got something... Got to do some practice riding this spring as a buddy and I are goin' to Inuvik this summer!

I'm in the Elmvale acres part of town and I would love to join you in a nice ride on the Quebec side.
I have maps!

Here is a great map book site.

http://www.backroadmapbooks.com/inde...&region=quebec
I found these at the Rideau Centre in a small gift shop. Should be some in St-Laurent and Bayshore.

It's incredible to see the difference between Ontario and Quebec on a map. Quebec is all squigly (squigly=fun) and Ontario looks like a game of tic-tac-toe.
Just the round trip to Vals-des-Bois is a fun ride. About 3 hours.

By the way. How the hell did you pull off a r12000gsa for Christmas?!?!

Those map books looks great! Good reason to use the map pocket on my tank bag. I also have a handheld GPS with street and topo maps. Will be anxious to mount it to the bike as well.

I can guarantee I will never have a surprise like that again. There are a lot of women in the house and my wife understood the hormonal balance and the dream.

Is there an Ottawa area/West Quebec site for posting/planning rides? Will this thread suffice? I know ott.motorcycle does it but it seems mostly sportbikes.

At my house, the hormonal balance and the dream only exist after a good match. Too many females under one roof.

Understood. My young girls are under 10. I know what is to come and it scares me but I try not to think about it.

I figure we can this thread. Perhaps a winter meet up over some malted beverages is in order.
