BMW with some Hondas

Me and 18 Hondas went on a bike ride yesterday, we ended up in Niagara but the video I took is at the starting point in Waterloo County.

Re: BMW with some Hondas

Nice video Gerhard! I don't get much opportunity to ride in your part of the country but probably will now. Could you post your route and info on your camera.

Re: BMW with some Hondas

Ridge Rd on top of the escarpment out of Hamilton is a nice road to take. Great scenery on top of the escarpment. Catch it at the top of the escarpment off Upper Centennial Parkway. Or you could get the best ice cream around at Stoney Creek Dairy then catch New Mountain road up the escarpment to Ridge Rd. (

At the end of Ridge Rd turn left and go north to the QEW (sorry, no easy way to get past St. Catherines) get on (don't go over the skyway) Niagara Stone Rd into Niagara on the Lake great ride lots of wineries with free sampling.

Re: BMW with some Hondas

Thanks for the comments. I don't know if we stuck exactly to this route but this was the plan when we set out as posted below. We stuck pretty close to schedule till we had lunch. Two fellows from St. Thomas and I (live in Huron County) broke off from the group at Cayuga. It was a fairly geographic diverse group, one rider from Bracebridge, Brampton, Newmarket, Hamilton, Sarnia, St. Thomas and a number from the KW area. The thing the group had in common was the Honda ST, I just traded mine a few weeks ago for the RT. The camera I use is a Contour HD, I don't think that model is sold anymore but they are marketing a replacement in the $200 range. I think the GoPro cameras provide as good or better video but I like the Contour form factor and mounting system better.

Re: BMW with some Hondas

Thanks Gerhard and Garry: I am off to Mapsource and route planning. I may get a chance in the next week or two to take a longer ride.
