The 29th Annual Mini GO Ride - Covid-19 Virtual Version

So, we've laughingly decided to call this event two different names...

The 29th Annual Mini GO Ride

- and/or -

The 2nd Annual Mini GO Ride - Covid19 Virtual Version

You are totally welcome to choose either of the two, LOL. Wait, we are just joking!!! They are both referring to the same event.

The first 25 registrants who donate at least $25 will get a $10 gift certificate to the Neebing Roadhouse.

It's been over a year of Covid and the vaccines are starting to show us a light at the end of this loooong Covid-19 tunnel.

As we have last year we will be asking riders to please adhere to the rules of all levels of governments.  As we all know, the rules change frequently so please adhere to rules as they stand on the day that you ride. 

WHAT: The Mini GO Ride (MGR) is a fun, non competitive bike tour of approximately 10, 20, or 50km on the back-country roads of Thunder Bay and Oliver-Paipoonge Township.

WHEN: From the day you sign up/donate to the last day of July 2021. The event will start in mid May and the months of June and July to allow more opportunity for safer spacing between riders.

Please ride in the daylight hours.

WHERE/ROUTES: You may start the Neebing Roadhouse or anywhere along the route. (see below section on WHERE TO PARK) BUT - if you can't make it to the route then you may ride anywhere you want. Even in another city, province or country!!

All three routes start at the Neebing Roadhouse to:

SHORT ROUTE: to Candy Mountain Road then turn around (12km)

MEDIUM ROUTE: along Candy Mountain Road to Hanna Road then turn around (19km)

LONG ROUTE: to Hwy 588 for the long route (50km).   The routes are well marked CLICK HERE TO VIEW OR PRINT ROUTE MAPS

SET YOUR OWN ROUTE: If you just can't get to the Neebing, then ride anywhere by golly, yes... anywhere.  Anywhere includes Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, North America, and lastly, anywhere in the WORLD!!

The routes are marked with temporary white paint showing arrows at each turn. The last arrow will be marked with a number which indicates the distance to the next turn. Each arrow has a signature marking of an upsidedown letter “u” at the bottom of the arrow.

WHERE TO PARK: You may park at the Neebing Roadhouse or at the Kamview parking lot as long as you follow the current Covid-19 restrictions,

If both of the parking lots are full, then park anywhere else along the route that is sensible, safe, courteous and lawful and simply start and end the ride from where you are parked.

 

COVID RELATED CHANGES

1) This year's ride will span several months because we cannot anticipate what the restrictions will be in effect. So, by spreading the event over several months we hope that there will be some periods of time when we are allowed to participate.

2) If you ride with a group, you must still practice safe physical distancing.

3) Usually, we gather as a group inside the Neebing Roadhouse, but not this year.  Usually we give munchies along the way, but not this year.

 4) You may start and end anywhere or at the Neebing Roadhouse or Kamview parking lots, but if there are many vehicles in their parking lot, you may park and ride from anywhere on the route (see "WHERE TO PARK" section)

 5) During the ride, we will ask riders to allow adequate distance when passing another rider. You must be careful of traffic when passing. And we ask that anyone who is passing another rider to let the person know that they are passing, and we also ask that the person being passed to slow down a bit to allow a quick pass.

 6) This year our online registration will be by donation only. You decide how much to donate. Tax receipts will be given for donations of at least $20.
