GTA FIERO CRUISE: CALEDON-HOCKLEY VALLEY-FORKS OF THE CREDIT by OHNIKO
Mission: Hook up with fello Fiero enthusiasts & fans for a leisure cruise from
Caledon to the Hockley Valley and into the Forks of the Credit area.

This Tour includes scenic areas, lush hill & valley areas, nature areas, curves, hills & countryside.
This route is popular with car clubs, cyclists and bikers alike. There are many curves, hills & straight open stretches on this route for all to enjoy! I usually also do this drive in the fall as it is quite picturesque in September/October/early November.

WHEN: this Sunday October 6th, 2013
TIME: meet up at 9am, depart at 9:15am.



WHERE: we will meet up in front of the old RONA parking lot (just past the East Side Marios) at the 401 & Winston Churchill exit. (Whoever has attended the cruise nights on Friday evenings should now where this is.)
Official Googlemaps addy is:
3135 Argentia Rd
coords: 43.597836,-79.788716

Our gracious hosts & fellow Fiero friends Tim & Leanne, have invited us for a kick off breakfast at 9;30 am at their house in Georgetown/Norval. 8-)
thank you guys in advance for having us!!!

Their address is:
10364 Winston Churchill Blvd , Norval

So the plan is to meet up at our initial point @ Winston Churchill & Argentia and then proceed to their place right after, or if you like just meet up at their place. 8-)
I will go to the first meeting point in case anyone wants to follow me to their place.

I'LL keep an eye on the weather forecast 4 Sunday & will make a final yaye or nay later on Saturday. Typically, 30-40% pop is a go for me & I also look at the regional coverage & any frontal passages/pressure tendencities etc etc... :ugeek:

Great pictures! Had to do a double-take on the last one though. For just a second it looked like somebody very short was standing on the hood of the first black one.....

Anybody remember Tim Conway's 'Dorf on Golf'? :lol:

For anyone meeting us at Tim's place (our secondary rendezvous location), he says the house is on the lhs heading northbound (grey cape cod style)
and his orange vette will be in the driveway. Thanks Tim.

Just a clarification/confirmation please. I would like to attend with my wife if her schedule permits.

If we skip the early meeting/breakfast and meet up for the cruise only are we aiming to meet up with you for 10:30am or 9:30am? And at which location, 3135 Argentia or 10364 Winston Churchill?

I will be able to confirm closer to the weekend if we can attend and if we can if we'll make it for breakfast or not.

Am I allowed to invite a friend? They'd either ride their Harley or drive their Mustang 5.0. Not sure if he'd come but he's been talking about doing a cruise with me for a while.

we'd be meeting at Tim's place @ 10364 for 9;30 am & departing from his place at approx. 10;30 am.

the more friends/cars/bikes, the merrier, we don't discriminate too much...lol (ok, ricers....maybe!)

this may all be for nada for this sunday...weekend 4cast looks like crap as of now...keep posted! :|
