The 2017 Wasaga Beach Motorcycle Rally will be held July 14 to 16. Enjoy!
How do you do summertime? Some of us spend every minute possible at the cottage. Others stay closer to home taking it easy and BBQing with family and friends. Then there’s that select group that I like to classify as the “beach biker.” Unlike the typical beach bum, the beach biker is able to maintain a fine balance between riding, relaxing and cooling off at some of Ontario’s most beautiful sandy locations. While the beach bum is found usually toes in the water, bum in the sand for the entire day, the beach biker is a bit antsier. They usually stay for a maximum of two hours, just long enough to get their beach fix before getting back on the road and off to the next destination.
The beach biker doesn’t bring tents, chairs, coolers or a grill. They bring themselves, their bathing suit and maybe a towel and sunscreen if they plan ahead. I, of course, am one of these beach bikers, and after touring around to some fun beaches in Southern Ontario last season, I decided to head north to check out an event that combined so many of my favourite things. The 2nd Annual Wasaga Beach Rally, held on June 15-17, was everything I could hope for: bikes, beach, BBQ, bands, and just an all-around awesome time!
