GTA FIERO CRUISE: CALEDON-HOCKLEY VALLEY-FORKS OF THE CREDIT by OHNIKO
Mission: Hook up with fellow Fiero enthusiasts & fans for a leisurely 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.)

TIME: meet up at 9am, depart at 9:30am.

Any hints or thoughts on where?

I don't want to miss this one if the weather cooperates.

Looking forward to meeting some of you folks.

I missed the last one, so I'd like to try to make this one.

If it's up to a vote, I'd prefer a more leisurely drive, like the Niagara trip, though don't rule out a more fun drive on my account. My rear pads are reaching end-of-life, and while they're not gone yet, I wouldn't want to do much "spirited" driving with them. I'm planning on doing a brake upgrade this winter, so I don't want to drop money on the current brakes in October...

Weather seems like it might be decent.. but that is almost a week away. They sometimes have a hard time telling the weather as it happens.

If it's warm and I'm around in time (what time planned start?), I'm up for a drive.
Need to check the car a bit though - been sitting for nearly a month, and when I moved it last month it sounded a bit rough (misfiring?).

I wouldn't mind getting mine out for one late run before it goes away.

Weather has promise for the weekend.

Well here is a thought for consideration in that no one else has anything to offer.

We meet up at Harveys, Jane and the 401 (Home of the hot ones), and if we aren't shot or car-jacked, cruise over to Standard Auto Wreckers, walk on over the Diner down the road for a nice patty melt with fries and gravy and a Diet Coke, and just take the bus home.

Just a thought.

ha ha, good one!

I've updated the 1st post with the details for this Sunday. Looks like it'll be a very nice fall cruising day.

here are some links with some previous pics etc:

I anticipate a lot of fall tourists out there this weekend, so It'll be a very leisurely tour.
Last time I passed through the Cheltenham badlands a couple of weeks ago, it was packed with nowhere to park,
so it may just be a drive-by at that point instead of stopping for a look.
We do usually stop in Hockley village for a break and maybe also in Belfountain Village & Glen Williams to do some
damage in the glass blowing shop...
