Event Description

I wanted to Organize a BCC Club Ride(Must be a Member and have Signed Waiver and Paid Membership) that had our families meet us at the destination for a BBQ and Winery Tour.

How it would work:

BCC Riders Leave at the Crack of Dawn(Like Usual) end up in Jordan at the Upper Canada Cheese Company. Families would leave later and meet riders HERE(Upper Canada Cheese Company). We all Indulge in a BBQ and have Wine and Cheese!

Here are the FOOD Details:

$25 Per Person(1 Burger)/$30 Per Person(2 Burgers)

This includes:

1 Local Burger with Smoked Comfort Cream on a Caramelized Onion Bun
Sauteed Onions
1 Serving local Ice cream (see below)
Use of our picnic area, including field for Childrens games
Tent - as you saw
1 staff member to co ordinate
Complimentary Cheese tasting

Toute Sweet brings her cart and will mix to order. She will have 2 flavours (your choice, we can provide the selection to choose from) and with these two flavours, she will bring 4 add ins to compliment - say grilled peaches with Niagara ice wine - or raspberries with sparking cave springs and choc chunks...or just kid friendly ones....

Here are Route Options(By Paul van Dongen & DY):

1. LONG(Plus Hills) - 175kms

2. MED(No Rattlesnake) - 160kms

3. SHORT(Along the Lake) - 140kms

4. Short Course 90km
Flat as a pancake and 90k from MC Pk. Add 20 from L&L and that's 110... totally doable.
I've done it before. It goes along Lakeshore to Burlington (same as Short Option), then left and across the lift bridge, then follows the Waterfront Trail, which is very well marked. It avoids the Service Roads when it can, which is why it seems a tad convoluted, but it really is a no-brainer. At Beamsville it goes over the bridge then hooks up with Green Lane, meeting up with everyone else.


DATE: Sunday August 30th 2009 - ALL DAY EVENT

There will be a Lake Route(Directly there).... In the Process of designing it. Not as scenic but shorter. Also, if you plan on going, but are not sure of a way back, I will be starting to ASK Members how much extra room they have....

Cheers,

Dan.

FYI, there is a GO train service on weekends and holidays during the summer from Union with a few stops including St. Catherines and Niagara Falls. It only runs a few times a day, but if the spouse is unavailable its an awful lot cheaper than a taxi home. :-) HTH

Dan- great idea. I can maybe help with some of the logistics- just let me know what you need. Not sure how inclusive you want to be with regard to families?(You've seen our 2 little ones and they are a lot of fun but a lot of work!) If you want to include young kids in the mix some of us can maybe help with that as well. DaveO.

I have never ridden to Niagara on the lake before but I am sure the scenery will
be very beautiful. Throw in the bbq and wine at the end is like icing on the cake.
In my case my wife won't be able to meet me at the arrival in Niagara so is there
any possible alternative besides GO train service to go back to Toronto?
Thanks Dan for arranging the event. I think this event is going to be a hit with
members.

Hey Dan!

Maureen and I will participate and help organize if you want. I enjoy a nice glass of wine and Maureen will drink anything alcoholic (including condensed Lysol spray in a baggy). If there are any riders who don't want to ride the whole distance (140 km?) Maureen will likely be driving part way and meeting us en route for a 60 - 80 km ride.
Let us know what we can do.

Cheers,
Bob.

So, Ottawa plans have changed, and I have been green-lighted for the event! Yipeeee!!! The boys will be meeting us in Niagara, and I'm sure that there will be a need for MUCH wine by that point in the day! :)

Arrrgh, may need to do a double C that day. Won't leave me much time to get ready for work on Monday. If anyone can persuade Lesley to come out and pick me up, I certainly don't want to be the thrid guy on what sounds like a lot of romantic trips home.

Melani and I are interested. Mel would do a shorter ride, maybe start at the end and ride toward the group. Anyone interested in joining her?
With the bike rack on the van we carry 4 bikes and some people back plus shuttle clothes both ways. We will confirm closer to event.

Hey All,

Update: Can`t Serve Wine etc. Cause of Permit Problems and Red Tape. But I have surprises in store... Stay Tuned!

Here are some Pics I took Yesterday!

My wife just brought the gold cheese back and it's wonderful. The trip will be worth it. Looking forward to all the fantastic food after this epic.

Hey Dan, are there vegetarian lunch options in place of the burger? Jamie and I are both vegetarian. Just wondering.
