Do you want to be on the list? Going to be a lot of fantastic riding!

Can't make this one, two week family holiday planned in June. Should be fun though.

In broad strokes here is how things are looking:

Day one looks to be about 350 kilometers in length, and a really good mix of every kind of terrain. Starts out with some of Jim's (Drif10) favorite twisty gravel in the morning. The afternoon has 3 notable water crossings with solid bottoms and one hydro line. A rail line and a few of the same roads/trails as last year.

Day two Flanny has us crossing via a small ferry into Quebec for a BIG day! Less technical but with greater mileage. A mix of sand and gravel roller coaster roads with some scenic slab twisties.

Day three will have two optional routes. A 'get me the hell outta here' awesome twisty slab route, or a 'more dirt please' route. Both will cross back into Ontario on another ferry just south of Ottawa.

Plan is to elminate the need for a standby list, we still have to confirm the camp grounds can accomadate 100 riders. Hope to have some gps files ready later in the winter, and we will pre ride it soon as all this stinking snow melts!
