Here’s a peek at what’s going on this weekend:
Riders in British Columbia can get their kicks at the Greater Vancouver Motorcycle Club’s Routledge Run. There will be three courses this year, a scenic road route and two dual sport routes. The event starts 7 p.m. Friday night and runs until Sunday morning; it costs $60 per rider or passenger to sign up. That pays for two breakfasts, a dinner, a bag lunch, and your route sheet and awards.

If you ride a Harley-Davidson and you’d like to hang out with your fellow HD riders, the 24th Ontario HOG Rally runs this weekend Thursday-Sunday. The rally runs in Windsor, Ontario, this summer. You can find registration details here and a schedule of events here. There’ll be a poker walk (instead of a poker run ride), music, BBQ, and all the other stuff you associate with cruiser rallies.
If you’re in Alberta, you can ride with the Afghanistan Veterans Salute Rally, starting at the Edmonton Garrison at 11 a.m. and running 650 kms across the province, visiting CFB Wainwright along the way, and ending with a campout in Suffield. This event is intended to help veterans and the public share experiences, as well as a fundraiser for Friends of Veterans Canada and to raise awareness for the Video-A-Veteran for CASH Campaign.
