Ride to the Corduroy



Ahaaaa..., the Cord! I was a member of BEMC back in the early/mid 70's, but in the car side, with the Canadian Winter Rally. But I remember a lot of talk about the Cord back then. Nice to see that BEMC and the Cord are still alive. :congrats:

Very much alive it seems. Blair Sharpless, Bill's Sharpless' son, now runs the Cord with the help of many volunteers. It would be nice if we could get a few of our RTE guys together for this ride. There will be a BBQ lunch when we get to Gooderham, the start/ finish for the event.
