Saabs Winter Tour 2023–City and ‘Burbs Edition

January 29 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm EST

Free

We will do something a bit different in this late and wet winter. We will tour through the city and suburbs on interesting roads that you may have only been on if you live there!

Our starting point is the parking lot for Amesbury Arena, 145 Culford Rd.

  • If coming from the west on the 401, go south on Black Creek Drive, turn left onto Lawrence Ave W., and turn right at the second traffic light onto Culford.
  • If coming from the east on the 401, exit at Keele, go south to Lawrence Ave W., turn right on Lawrence, and turn left at the second traffic light onto Culford.

The parking lot is just past the arena on the left-hand side.

PLEASE ARRIVE BY 10:45 AM for the driver’s meeting! We want to depart at 11 AM sharp.

We should be done in approximately 2.5 hours, at 1:30 PM. The end point is Stonehooker Brewery, on Lakeshore Rd between Dixie and Cawthra, which brews and sells a bewildering variety of beers, and can supply you with cans or large or small growlers.

Some of the the Tour’s highlights are listed in this post.

Please also note the following:

Please bring clothing and footwear suitable for the weather and short walks (10 to 20 minutes maxiumum) on park paths.

Although this tour is all on urban streets (with a stretch of freeway driving), there are many steep grades and sharp curves on the route. Good winter tires are strongly recommended.

All welcome, but if you are not a member of the club we would appreciate you considering joining.
