I've wanted to do the ride for a few years now, but haven't ever been able to. The schedule looks clear this year and I am definitely looking forward to it.
I do have a few questions though. How would a guy from Whitby get there and home afterwards, I haven't really looked into it yet but that's got me wondering and how crowded is it draws a lot of people so I was wondering what the riding will be like.
Well it was a good day & it never rained. The slicks I put on made a big difference from last year's ride.
One problem I do have & a lot of folks would probably agree is that the left hand lane on the Gardiner should be for the faster riders. For the most part, families w/ smallers bikers usually stayed to the right, but several times I caught up to pairs of riders in the left lane just puttering along talking to each other. Roadies were trying to get by the guys, but there was only a couple of feet between the slowpokes & the cement median.
