Motorcycle Miles

Motorcycle season is upon us once again. Riders are itching to shake off the winter blues, the asphalt is warming up, the dry wind is creeping in and the changes riders have made to their bikes over winter have been flaunted. What can I say other than, it feels good to be back on two! Let us start off with a refresher of some common spots where riders gather to enjoy each other’s company.

A frequent stop for GTA riders is Burrito Boyz, Port Credit Tuesday nights from 6pm-11pm. The Burrito Boyz restaurant is located on 9 Stavebank Rd. N, Mississauga ON. Once you are in the area there is no way you can miss the location. The smell of Burritos will be in the air, music will be playing and the streets will be lined with bikes. If you come early enough you can take a walk down the Credit River canal at Snug Harbour or just sit along the water’s edge and relax. Besides Burrito Boyz there is a vast assortment of Cafés, Restaurants, Lounges or ice cream parlours to choose from so come out and indulge however you choose to. All are welcome.

From May – October we have #TheMotoSocial that takes place on the first Wednesday of the month from 8pm – 10pm. The first one has past, which was held May 3 2017 at Canary Dark Horse Espresso Bar located 416 Front St, E, Toronto ON. Locations of the social change so check them out on instagram @themotosocial or at their website themotosocial.com for details of their next event. Expect to see a wide variety of bikes, scooters, mopeds, Harley’s and more. This gathering has grown to the point where not only two wheeled vehicles show up but cars as well. This has become an event that is more about the relationships and interaction between motor vehicle enthusiasts than it is about the choice of motor vehicle driven/ridden.This is a very trendy crowd and there is no limitation to the kind of individual, group or families that are likely to take part in the night. This event has done its part to make a big city seem just a bit smaller.

Thursdays are infamous for L&L (Lakeshore & Leslie) 731 Eastern Ave, Toronto, ON. Typically a meet-up location for sports bikes and if you are familiar with Ontario riders then you know any Tim Horton’s is good for a bike meet-up. The FreshCo parking lot provides ample space for bikes to take over and provide quite the visual due to the mass amounts of riders that show up. After catching up with old friends and sipping on Dark roast Tim Hortons coffee, it is common to see some skilled riders leave L&L in fashion while showing off a little for the crowd.

There are many more meet up spots throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Try out one of these spots and by the time you leave you will have many more destinations to journey toward throughout the summer. While attending these locations it would become apparent to the most oblivious person that the bike community is one family held close together by a common passion.

Two wheels move the soul, one passion moves the family.
