Let's Go Riding!

Today is the 7th Annual ATV Ride in Support of the Holmes Foundation. There's not a lot of internet chatter about this event right now. Last year, the event was very publicized, but this year it's been rather quiet. I did find this photo on an ATV enthusiast webpage:

There's also this short snippet from the Midland Freepress:

The annual ATV Ride in support of the Holmes Foundation will return to Springwater Township this year, with a portion of the entry fee going to support the foundation’s goal of ensuring residential construction is “done right the first time.”
The ride, which is organized by the Ontario Federation of All Terrain Vehicles (OFATV), will take place on Saturday, May 11 and will launch at 9 a.m. from the Township Administration Centre at 2231 Nursery Rd. Participants will have the opportunity to meet the foundation’s namesake, professional contractor and TV personality Mike Holmes, before heading out on a guided ride through the trails and forests of Springwater Township.
The Township of Springwater is excited to host the annual event for a second time, showcasing Springwater’s amazing trail network. The ride promotes the Holmes Foundation and its partnerships with schools, businesses and governments to raise the reputation of skilled trades in Canada.
Lunch will be served trail-side and the day will wrap up with an after-ride reception at Horseshoe Resort.
For registration information and rules and regulations, visit the OFATV website,, or call Rhonda Broderick, president of the Central Ontario ATV Club at 705-429-3822 or email:

I'm sure there will be some more information about today's events, as well as pictures and video in days to come! Hope the weather's nice for everyone. Stay safe and get dirty!
