Intro: Lotsa twisties, quick elevation changes, awesome vistas, driver-demanding! It is not for any faint-of-heart passengers, but we do consider safety first, and ahem the rules of the road. :shock:

This one is a bit different from our typical cruises as it can be a high performance run. I've seen speed bikes do this one occassionally (and a Fiero or 2!).
It will take place through Halton Hills, Flamboro, Milton areas etc., with an optional late lunch stop at the end.

***Please make sure your lights, horn, wheels, brakes, suspension & steering are in good working order.***
Minimal breakfast & barf bags are suggested, but hopefully not required.
We do pull some g's on this one. Anyone who's done this one before can attest!


Mission: Hook up with fellow Fiero enthusiasts & fans for a very non-leisurely cruise from Caledon to Milton area, criss-crossing some really picturesque Escarpment country!

This Tour includes scenic areas, lush hill & valley areas, nature areas, fast curves, steep hills & countryside.
Parts of this route are popular with car clubs, cyclists and bikers alike. They need to watch out! (jk), let's consider to be considerate.
There are many curves, hills & straight open stretches on this route for all to enjoy!
Usually I also do this drive in the fall, as it is quite picturesque in September/October/early November with all the leaves swirling around in my dust.

WHEN: this Sunday September 28th, 2014
TIME: meet up at 9:00 am, depart at 9:30 am.
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 classic cruise nights on Friday evenings should know where this is.)

Official Googlemaps addy is:
3135 Argentia Rd
coords: 43.597836,-79.788716

Please be food & gas filled so we can leave at 9:30 am sharp. It's best to gas up first, then meet up.

Who's in? ...any Fiero friends you know that also have 'sports cars/motorcycles' are welcome & invited. Let's see if they can keep up. :roll:

I'll monitor the weather as the date approaches& make a final call on it on Saturday. If it doesn't happen for whatever reason, I'll reschedule it, so don't despair! :lol:


Here's last years info 4 this run: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/092950.html

RATE ME IF YOU LIKE MY CRUISES!!!
1985 RED & SILVER CUSTOM GT 2.8 V6...IT LOOKS NICE!

Original 18" x 8" Motegi Roja's, 225-40-ZR18's front, 265-35-ZR18's rears, coil-overs, KYB shocks & struts, 2.5" drop, K&N filters, Holley side scoop, upgraded front & rear sway bars, poly, fully loaded, tinted, & some other nice custom stuff...

1985 GT SILVER CONVERSION PROJECT, 3800 SC SII powered, doesn't look as nice (yet), but it sure goes!

I am in

I am going to pick up Lunatic on the way, since his car won't be ready before the second coming of Christ....

I propose starting around Lowville, work our way up through Campbellville, and have lunch or dinner near Rockwood

Just let Nick do his thing boys. He is very good at this and puts in a lot of effort. This cruise is a blast! I have done it with Nick several times and it never disappoints. I hope to be along for this one as well

YA, sorry I don't have time to scout a new route this year, so i'll stick to the one we've been doing for the last few years.

If you haven't done this run, Im pretty confident that you will not be disappointed.

I've had complaints before that some passengers have gotten 'too dizzy' during this ride...

Hope you make it Dave, this one's for you buddy!

We do stop at least once during the run for a stretch, bathroom break etc.
