    Nice ride, except a little rain. Big crowds, but well managed. Lot's of people watching! Plenty of vendors and food lines weren't bad either.

    Thanks to everyone who joined the ride to Port Dover. We had 12 people go. As usual we hit heavy rain in Canada for about a half hour. A special thanks to Chris G for leading us to Port Dover with a nice route and to Kevin for the help getting back to Rochester. Kevin , Bob, Tom and myself came back to Rochester last night. The rest of the group stayed in Canada.

    We will be leaving McDonalds promptly at 8:50. If I remember correctly the bridge crossing is $3.50. Last year we found parking at a marina only 1/2 mile from downtown. They charged $5.00 per bike. I am packing food and beverages to avoid the long lines at the concession and restaurant areas. Remember Passports or Enhanced Drivers License and a full tank of gas.

    Really wanted to go but not going to be able to make it.

    The shame is that there isn't another summer Friday the 13th for a few years. Have a good time!

    Chris, Sounds good. We will meet you at the Village Inn. We will leave Rochester at 8:50

  • Chris G

    ok here is the plan , Meet Joy and I at rte 104 and 98 at the village inn, we will be on the right on the 104 side of the village in. If the group leaves on time you should be there at about 9:20. From there we will leave right away and take 104 to indian hill rd, to upper moutain rd, to lewiston bridge. We will stop at Tim Hortons just b4 the bridge for a quick break. Then over the bridge onto 405 to qew for 1 exit to rte 89 to 406 to rte 20, 20 to silver st (rte 65) to smithville rd (rte14) to 3 to 6 and into portdover
    Mapquest says its 133 miles from kendall and 2hr 50 min, any ? or comments ask now not when we meet fri morning.

    Update-- I asked our esteemed past R2R Organizer Chris if he would lead the group to Port Dover. Happily he said yes. Chris is setting up the route now. We will still meet at McDonalds and I will lead the group to a point west of Rochester to meet up with Chris and Joy. I will lead the group back to Rochester from Port Dover unless one of our group wants to do it. Hopefully we can finalize all the plans by tomorrow night. Remember that a Passport or Enhanced Drivers License will be required.

      You should look into it at the DMV Kev! I don't think it's a long process! You might right be able to get it in time! Check it out!

      I think you can do it on line too.

    Had a lot of fun with the R2R folks at the September 2013 rally (my first big bike rally) despite the awful weather in the US (it was a nice fall day in Canada). Would like to get back again, and in nicer weather, but I believe I have conflicts this time around. I'll know more as we get closer to the date.

    You've got plenty of time to get an enhanced license or a passport. Everyone should check this town/rally out at least once - no other event this size this close to Rochester.

    An Enhanced Drivers License cost $30.00 and takes about 10 days to receive.

    Hi David, You're welcome. Looking forward to many R2R Meetups this coming season. I thought I would get the ball rolling early. Can't wait to get back on two wheels.
