I've entered this event every year, since it's inception. My son has joined me for the last few and we always have a terrific time! This year, we entered early and are really looking forward to the date. I was a bit surprised at our monthly Ganaraska CVMG meeting this evening, when our Treasurer reported a less than full entry list. Organization is superb, the roads are lovely and the meals and comradarie just add to a delightful day. Yet, over the years, the event is supported by a total of only 60-65 individual members. The club's best kept secret??
Understanding the Callander is extremely full, I'd encourage Southern Ontario riders to join in the fun. And bring a friend! Rallies and Shows abound, but this is our singular, "Giro Style" road event. It's only as competitive as you want to make it, and most of us are just happy to find our way back for lunch and dinner...... don't keep missing the best CVMG event of the year. Phil and his Team do an awesome job and deserve your support. If you have any suggestions to help the event grow, I'm sure they'd be happy to hear from you. Thanks, and see you there. More Comments??

Well John, I think you keep going back to try to repeat your win of the first year. PS I'm riding a BSA 350 this year... Charles Earp
I will be attending the Ganaraska 250 for the third time this May. I am surprised at the lack of enthusiasm for this event. It is well organized and is a chance to actually ride one of my pride and joys. I get to ride on fabulous roads that are off the beaten path. Standing around at a rally, drinking beer and telling lies of your misspent youth may be fun but it lacks the feeling of accomplishment you achieve from riding in a "Giro". If you think it is too far to travel to this event, consider the fact that I come from Alberta to attend.
Charles..... I wish!
Gord...... thanks for your support and enthusiasm. See you soon! John D.
Ganaraska Section Treasurer, Dave Smith, sent out a reminder today. Entries should be in to him by April 24 to assist in final plans for the event. See the website <Ganaraska250.ca> for details and come out for the best CVMG day of 2017!
This is a fantastic event, wish that I had a ride to participate....
Come on Guys as the Salvation Army Says "Come and Join US " Don,t be shy its your club make the most of it while you can ! Support those who put the Tremendous effort and time into these events .
I,m 85 this year , entered and finished All but the second stage year before last so far and thoroughly enjoyed myself , If I can do it So can you ! you don't Have to Win you know !
Its Fun , Interesting and you may learn something about yourself even ! Who cares if you get lost , There,s someone to pick you up hell we all make mistakes get out there and enjoy the fresh air , hope to see you ?
I'm a relatively old, newbie to the group but there's no doubt the 250 is a great day out, I volunteered last year and thoroughly enjoyed the collection of bikes and camaraderie second to none, oh, yes the food was great too.
I've signed up to ride my 69 Commando this year, I've secured all my fillings and am looking forward to the day out and all that goes with it, rain or shine.
Come on guys take the challenge.
Great roads for sure, missed it last year although not sure if I can make it this year. We are getting busy at work and my shift means Friday nights so unless we have a Friday off which means a day shift for me I'll miss out this year again.
I won't know for sure until a week before the event,If I'm off,I'll be there Sat morning
I'm another one that would love to make this event but being that its 550 km's from home its a big commitment. A full day needed for getting there and another for getting home. Still I'd like to be there this year but won't know if I can make it for sure for a few weeks.
Maybe I should pay my fee and hope it works out.
For those who've been there; what can one expect for the agility tests?
And are there any 80kph posted roads involved?
