Maxbimmer Autumn Cruise 2012: Sunday September 16th
 
Date: Sunday September 16th
Time: 11am meet - 12pm SHARP cruise departure (you're not there, too bad!)
Meeting Place: Dave & Busters parking lot
Address: 120 Interchange Way, Vaughan


Time for another run around the Muskoka region! As above indicates we'll be meeting in Woodbridge for an hour of chatting then depart northbound. The full round trip back to the Toronto area is around 400km. As I did for the Spring Cruise I will create a Google map of the route and have copies for everyone at the meet spot.

News:
- the last 1/4 of the route is different than last year's. Several new twisty and scenic backroads have been found and implemented into the old basic route.
- there is a lunch stop, a coffee stop, and a dinner stop. We never drive more than 1.5 hours without a break to stretch our legs, regroup, and use the facilities.
- the lunch and coffee stops are 30 mins each and I will give a 5 minute warning before leaving each stop.
- dinner will take place at around 5:30pm. Your choice of either Boston Pizza or Regatta Steakhouse which sit next to each other right on the water in Gravenhurst.
- if you stay for dinner, expect to return to the GTA at approximately 9pm. If you skip dinner but do the full cruise route you will be in the GTA by 7:30pm. Distance from Dave & Busters to dinner stop = 245km; distance from dinner location back to D&B = 145km.

Here's some great pics of last year's event taken by our ex-photog qimis (thanks Len!):

Unfortunately it's on the same day as Trullium autoslalom.

BMe30 09-06-2012 01:27 PM

Razkal 09-06-2012 01:32 PM

Count me in! It has been a while...

can't make this one.. i'll be driving on the Tail of the Dragon with a bunch of friends for a 4-day (stag) get-a-way. Won't make the Autoslalom either. Somehow I think it'll be worth it though. :cool:*drink* *shiner* :D

He totally guessed my speed because I was going way faster than that. :D

Lol. I saw a piggy pulling over a sportbike at that SAME bridge stretch during my trip back in June.

Love to hear the details about that. I know what you mean.. I currently have a warrant out for my arrest in New Jersey State from the old DTMpower days. Not going there anytime soon!

The full round trip back to the Toronto area is around 400km. There will be a brief snack/lunch stop (30min) about an hour into the cruise, then the full 1-2 hour dinner at around 4pm. Return time to Toronto should be 7pm. As I did for the Spring Cruise I will create a Google map of the route and have copies for everyone at the meet spot.

Is it going on your record in Canada?

Don't forget to include Highway #13 after Orillia from HWY 11 north to Torrence and then on into Bala. Soft shoulders and lots of turns.*wiggle*

Update. So I drove the route this weekend to make sure the roads and open and in good shape. I made a few significant changes:

- the last 1/4 of the route is different than last year's. Several new twisty and scenic backroads have been found and implemented into the old basic route.
- there is a lunch stop, a coffee stop, and a dinner stop. We never drive more than 1.5 hours without a break to stretch our legs, regroup, and use the facilities.
- the lunch and coffee stops are 30 mins each and I will give a 5 minute warning before leaving each stop.
- dinner will take place at around 5:30pm. Your choice of either Boston Pizza or Regatta Steakhouse which sit next to each other right on the water in Gravenhurst.
- if you stay for dinner, expect to return to the GTA at approximately 9pm. If you skip dinner but do the full cruise route you will be in the GTA by 7:30pm. Distance from Dave & Busters to dinner stop = 245km; distance from dinner location back to D&B = 145km.

Overall I'm very happy with the road conditions as well as the new route additions. I hope that the new structured stop/break schedule will help alleviate some of the issues we've had as the cruise groups get larger and larger each year.

Southwood is one of the main reasons we run this route in that direction. But it is just 1 of about 6 great roads in the Muskoka Region we enjoy on this cruise. :)
