    I appreciate you doing all this work.
    I partook in the last one you had 2 yrs ago.....

    My only complaint is that you go through all the effort of providing a screen shot of the routes from Googlemaps, but no GPX file or Googlemap link to download.
    I say this as I did the "One of my Favourite" routes around Bobcaygeon and Bancroft, but I missed pulling over for 2 of the 4 stops and didn't get credit. The 2 motorcycle shops I got, but didn't understand that I needed to pull off for the 2 remainding.

    Hey Brian, all good. I too had a similar situation myself on the weekend. Turns out the android version assuming u were using android phone did not have the latest version of the app. All this to say not to worry go to cannonball rides website send me your mailing address and I'll send you a patch at least. I am going to add this week printable maps, google map link, and of course GPX file download option. lots of riding time left. I'll make sure with your details to get your name into the draws for goodies, okay. This will once again be as simple as let's go for a ride, have some fun and get in on the cannonball rides movement. Not everyone wants to just go for a ride to Tim hortons and call that a ride, if u know what I mean. I had a blast doing this exact ride on the weekend. Completed in 3.55 hrs, but for me anyways the trick was leaving early. Cottagers started moving on hwy 28 about 9.30am. By then I was almost done. Look forward to your reply.
    Cheers David

    Hi David
    You adding the GPX files and all is great, it'll make life much easier for us simpletons.....(me..LOL)

    Don't worry about the patch, I enjoy the rides, just as you do. I appreciate you putting me into the draw.

    Once again, thank you for putting in all the work that makes this happen.
