Hi Brian,
The problem with the coupon is that it applies AFTER 5 PM on Saturday. In the past the majority of the group are interested in an afternoon activity and an early dinner as even those coming from Toronto have an hours drive to get home.
This cheap arse has gone after the dinner.......but then it is not a group outing.

Thanks for clarifying Phil. My bad....and attempt at being cheap

Yep, I'm planning on it, as long as travel weather is not too awful.

Got it figured out. NOT the Int'l Bike Show at Exposition Place (which is where i was going to go) but the Bike Show at the Int'l Centre (north side of Pearson).
Arizona B&G sounds great ..................

After QEW what's it going to cost me to take the 407 to the 403? Will i have to throw any toll booth money for the 401 up to the airport?? Guess if traffic not a big mess I'd just do QEW to the 427. Of course need the obligatory Tim Horton's stop in Grimsby. On a Sat AM in winter I'm planning about 1 hr 45 min to get to Int'l Centre from Ft Erie.

Jeff

Hi JeffH,
Yes travel time should be less than 2 hours at that time of day.
Plenty of Timmies before Grimsby if you need an earlier stop.
So far only 407 has tolls.
I would stay on QEW to Hwy 403 at Oakville ( Ford Plant) to 427 North and take the Airport (1st) exit to Airport Road up to International Centre.
Free Parking but can be very busy and a bit of a walk in the cold.

https://www.google.ca/maps/@43.70326...8586,17z?hl=en

While International Centre is located in Mississauga it may show up on some GPS maps as Toronto.

Phil
