Hey! It’s that time of year again to go big and dirty! Saturday, October 22nd. 9:00 am @ Loblaws Redway.
All welcome (assuming you can ride/socialize for 7ish hours). Bring a lunch, snacks, lots of water and tools.
Rain date: Nov 5th.
Apres: My place! I’ll be hosting the apres again, and we’ll have heat lamps so hopefully we can do it outside. I will fully stock up on a fine collection of snobbish craft beers (and coolers for the Palm Bay couple?) so not to worry there, just please let me know if you are coming so I have enough. We’ll be grilling some of that glorious, infamous ćevapi while we wait for an order from Greenwood Smokehouse BBQ – this was a huge hit last year. We’ll aim for the order to be about $20 per person. Also, I live pretty close to the trails so people can feel free drop off clothes before the ride, so you can shower and change after if you want.
Route: TBD, but a route suggestion has been roughed out (similar to last year) with an emphasis on stringing together the favorites. Of course, it is not a dirty ride without getting your hands dirty a little, so expect a little bushwacking.

I will ride this ride, drink your beer, and bring $20 for BBQ’d goodness!October 6, 2016 at 3:55 pm #813470
Sounds good to me, count me.October 6, 2016 at 5:50 pm #813471
You are the hostess with the most-est! I shall ride until noon, but must attend Cask Days at the Brickworks in the afternoon. Sorry I will miss the edible part of the ride (again). The irony of my inability to drink anything besides Guinness or beer-flavored grapefruit juice is not lost on me…October 7, 2016 at 4:16 pm #813475
I’m in. I just heard about the BDDR the other day and am thrilled to have found the thread.October 11, 2016 at 1:37 pm #813750
IN!!October 11, 2016 at 3:07 pm #813751

I’m going to caskdays the night before, so, yeah…October 14, 2016 at 4:40 pm #813823
Sounds good @blurredlines @endurorider @grahamlockett @gravityalan @dexter01 and those that RSVP’d in person. The forecast is looking a tad spotty for next Saturday, but I’m still optimistic. Stay tuned.
Oh, caskdays and their poor choice of weekends. Note that latecomers could meet up en route at about 11:00 in Sunnybrook – if this is helpful, let me know. Any time after that becomes a bit tricky however.October 18, 2016 at 10:43 am #813849
@jcitizen: Erich and I are going to Caskdays the night before too! But we will be there at 9am, perhaps a little worse for wear, but still there! No excuses.October 19, 2016 at 4:24 pm #813877
Been keeping an eye on the weather and looks like we are a go for Saturday! It’s going to be a chilly one this year.
Erich and I are going to Caskdays the night before too
– I believe this is what high performance athletes call carbo-loading? Carbohydrates are important!
Note that by request from the purists (usurpers!) there is a change in the start location. We will now be meeting 9:00am at The Pottery Road Trailhead. We should be by the Loblaws shortly thereafter about 9:15 to pick up anyone that goes straight there.
We have an awesome route sketched out (about 65-70kms if all goes well). Bring a lunch, snacks, and lots of water as the fountains might be off already.
I have 14.5 confirmed for the ride, and 12 for the apres. Like I said before, we are grilling some post ride eats, but will order most of our feast from here: http://greenwoodsmokehouse.com/menu/. No one has RSVP’d about dropping off a change of clothes before the ride so if you plan on doing that, touch base with me to coordinate.
Looking forward to it!October 20, 2016 at 9:01 pm #813894

My real excuses are my children. Beat that!
And keep an eye out for me. We should be there at the 7pm start, so I might be a bit blurry after 830.October 21, 2016 at 8:30 am #813895
Going to skip the pottery meet up, but will see you at Cricket 930ish.October 21, 2016 at 9:54 am #813896
