Montreal area off island ride 10 June

Thinking to make a run on 10th June from the same Rigaud rest area (GPS 45.469017,-74.254673) to the antique fair at Centre d’action Ste Anne de Prescott Ontario (GPS 45.443753,-74.471031).

Roads are good once in Ontario and not too many hills for the lower HP bikes, distance from rest area to fair is only 20km. After checking out antique rural stuff we can go for a longer ride and head up back past the biker bar in St.Eugene.

Lots of goodly open stretches of road if you need to stretch your ped's legs and see just how well she goes on the flat straight with no traffic.

How many miles is that as I'm just a Dumm ol'yank who don't know these things ?

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

20km is only 12.5 miles, which is obviously not far, but some people in Montreal would have to travel 80km or 50 miles just to get to Rigaud rest area. Last fall 5 people made it out for a short poutine run (and Lance did not make it).

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

Don - get Deezy and also bring BadBob - make sure you bring extra back packs so we can load you all up with poutine mix to bring home!

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

I can snuggle into a suitcase if I have to, but I'd want some female companionship in there if I were in too long.

I sorta would like a window to look out of too.

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

No guy's this would be Epic Journey time and do a 6000 mile ride there and back again ;something even ol'Bad Bob and Billbo Baggins would know about !~

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

Bump in case anyone is interested - the weather is going to be good on Sunday and there is no protesters to disrupt traffic off island and get all the car drivers impatient and pissy.

Fair starts at 11 oclock at the Centre d’action in Ste Anne de Prescott Ontario.

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

Wow, that would be fun, truck not running well or would consider it, what are regs concerning bringing a moped into the country in a truck? Both are registered and insured in MN. I would love to meet and ride with you.

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

I plan to be at the Oxford Mills rally for vintage bikes near Ottawa July 7, later in the summer also have a run to a beer micro brewery, also a run out to Rigaud for the hotrod show in August, a run to a vineyard in early fall, fall leaves colour run in October.

I am going to these events anyway so if people want to ride along they are very welcome to come along.

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

As long as you have a valid plate, registration and insurance you are permitted to trailer the bikes into Canada, ride them, trailer them home.

Re: Montreal area off island ride 10 June

I plan on being in MTL later for work, probably mid July or end of summer. Any chance for loaner?
