Let's meet downtown for the Slow Pokes and go to island

  • July 14, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • bottom of Lower Spadina and Queen's Quay

Spadina Wave Deck there is a lovely bench to sit at, see picture.  We "could" take water taxis $10 each over to island escaping the big ferry line ups and drive (hang out, eat/drink) leasure bike around the island, this is just an idea...Ferry ride back is free, even if taxi would not be.  .  We can decide/flip a coin where to go from there.  As I replied to some who wanted to go West on Lakeshore, there is Indy car race, so the traffic is bad... let's not worry where we will go... where ever our wheels take us :) if you drive on Spadina to the bottom, you will end up right at this bench :)

      You have my cell so text us. We may not respond right away. But I will try to text you where we are before 1pm. Then you can decide. Island is only a ferry ride away :)

      Hi Frank, can you delete the picture of yourself with Hot Gen from the group pictures? it seems you are on every event, eventhough you had not attended, but you posted the picture, it has nothing to do with this trip (at least). thank you.

    Any idea how many are bringing their bikes along? I certainly am. If everyone is bringing a bike, I guess a few of us would have to wait, till the boat comes back.

      Dear Shahid I know as much as you do re: who is bringing a bike. But I do "assume" everyone. Unless someone wants to run ... Yes. We will wait and wave...

    Ten people its perfect. No more guests please. We want to have a small fun group. If we decide on taxi that I just spoke to few min ago. They usually take two-max 3 bikes at a time. They have two boats! $10 is to get us to island. Ride around. Have lunch. Beach. Bring a tower, bottle water, sun screen SPF helmet/hat. Taxi won't be busy around 11-12. We can get back for free on ferry. Otherwise $10 to get back (again). Nice breeze by the water. Looking forward ...we can make alternate plans. But we can bike around city anytime! We have full day, lets escape the city. Break the piggy bank :)

    I suggest for members to post their pictures, as it's safe and also respectful towards others. Thank you.

    Hi Beata: I would like to ride to Port Credit from anywhere along Queens Quay W. It's beautiful along the waterfront trail. I am not into endurance biking but more leisure. I average 20km/h. Sunday forecast is sunny and any time suits me.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
