Thu-Mon, 17-21 August, 17:00 – 17:00 RIDE: Gay Pride Montréal. We had a really good time with this last year and there's a lot more to do than we did last year, from amusement parks to shopping and art galleries. Like last year, there will be two groups going up and coming back: highway riders and country riders -- everyone makes their own accommodation plans and we'll use What'sApp or SMS to arrange meet-ups for breakfast to chat about the day's plans. If you can, go up on 17th August (Thursday) and come home 21st August (Monday). It's a straight shot there and back -- about 9 hours (at the speed limit) including gas-ups, food breaks and the Canadian/United States border. RIDERS: If you're riding with us, meet at Lexington Candy Counter at 8am for breakfast, 9am kick-stands-up. If you're NOT RIDING, just meet us up there on Thursday night -- riders and non-riders welcome -- you can even take the train if you like! Remember: There is FREE MOTORCYCLE parking in Montréal in special areas. Gay Pride Montréal information: www.fiertemontrealpride.com/en/pride/
