Maxbimmer Spring Cruise 2012: Saturday May 12th (GTA)
Happy 2012 driving season everyone. I'm once again gearing up to locate and lead you all to some of the best driving roads that Southern Ontario has to offer. I'm putting in some extra effort this year (new routes!) to keep it fresh and interesting.
Date: Saturday May 12th
Time: 10:30AM MEET! Driver's meeting followed by departure at 11AM SHARP!
Meeting Place: Kennedy Commons AMC Theatre 33 William Kitchen Rd Toronto
For those who have been to cruises in the past, you know what to expect. We have averaged ~75 cars per event for the past several years and hope to see a similar showing at Spring Cruise. We meet up, chat for a little bit, I discuss rules that the group mostly ignores later on...it's all a tradition. The route is going to be the typical ~500km affair so bring water, snacks, GPS, FRS radios, check the air in your spare tire, all the good stuff you would do for any lengthy roadtrip.
I specifically disliked the first ~150km of this Spring event ('09-'11 versions), so I drastically revamped it. We no longer drive on boring straight roads for the first 2.5 hours. I'm proud to say it's now a full day of great
roads and scenery.
Important notes (actually read them!):
o This is a full day event, we will not return to the GTA until 8-9pm.
o You will need a full tank of gas at the beginning of the cruise so fill up before arriving at the meeting spot.
o HAVE A VALID DRIVER'S LICENSE, CAR REGISTRATION, AND INSURANCE. OPP have visited us on this cruise, and really only ticket for a lack of these basic items. Driving on bald tires is another easy ticket to get.
o Dinner is at approximately 5:00pm.
o FRS radios will be used during this cruise, and are very helpful tools to have. Channel 6-9.
That's all for now, click attending if you will be joining us. Thanks!
