Hey,

Just curious if anyone else from these boards are in the Ottawa area? If there is, come spring it might be nice to go out for a ride... figured I would check!

Cheers,

Dave

Is Kitchener close enough? lol. I'd love to organize an Ontario ride this spring, maybe meet some members of the board!

I go between Ottawa - Peterborough quite a bit.... not usually out to Kitchener though. An Ontario ride would be interesting though!

I'm planning on driving to work sometimes, go in early and come out late. Rush hour driving in Montreal is crazy. Anybody around Hawkesbury?

I might be up for a ride towards Montreal area once the weather gets nice, it's not that far :)
Once things start getting nice we should organize some sort of a ride... it seems like there are at least a few of us in the general area!

I'm pretty sure that can be arranged.

If everything goes according to the plan, I should get a new/bigger apartment before the end of April, with enough place to keep a couple peeps overnight. If I get the benediction of the mistress of the house ;)

I'll keep you posted.

I'd love to come down, but hopefully it's not in May as I'm fully booked! I'll be on Montreal on the May 24 weekend for my bachelor party, but I won't have my bike :(

Show up in Montreal, smoke many cheap cigars, get ripping drunk, and have my buddy's parade me around various strip joints while making sure to not do anything my fiance would hate!

Ooooh, wrong city then man ;)

Try to parade on Ste-Catherine from St-Laurent eastward until De Lorimier

And change the cheap cigars for the hookah lounge on St-Denis. Ever tried a hookah cafe ? also referred as Sheesha or Narghile cafe

There's La Boom that you can visit too, though the real entertainment is right under there Chez Paré ;) For the girls, you can always send them at the Club 281 the equivalent for ladies.

If it's a warm sunny day, do show up on mount Royal, there'll be many, many peoples there. ;D

Oh and to buy beer, ask for a depanneur. To buy spirits, learn these 3 letters : SAQ (Société des Alcools du Québec)

One last tip : Don't turn right on a red light on the island ! It's the equivalent of going through a red .. outside the island is fine ..
