Local Trail Profile
Up to the Challenge...
Meeting the People on Your Trail
Did you bike your 150 during Canada’s 150? Seventy-five year old Jim Bauman sure did – he averages at least 5000 km per year on his wheels. No that is not a typo – Five. Thousand. Part of that was indeed the entire G2G Rail Trail and he generously shared his experiences with us.
As a member of the Easy Riders cycling group and a cycling enthusiast extraordinaire, Jim is out on the trails or the roads almost every snowless day. He has always enjoyed biking, and has often done longer trips with his wife and friends in West Virginia, around Lake Ontario’s 120km Waterfront Trail as well as touring around Lake Erie and the P’tit Trail du Nord in Quebec just to name a few.
Jim discovered the Kissing Bridge Trailway (KBT) nearly 25 years ago when he and his family moved spitting distance from it and he’s been a regular on the trail ever since. He’ll often ride from Elmira to Guelph or Millbank, meeting at the turnaround for a meal date with his wife before heading back but until a G2G newsletter about #Canadarides150 and the IPM by the trail in Walton this past September hadn’t realized riding the entire G2G was a possibility.
Although he has done over 100km in one day on paved roads this past summer he decided to break it down in chunks.
The first leg was McNaught Line to Blyth and contained one detour that has since happily become unnecessary with the opening of the Blyth Brook Bridge in the fall.
Going from Blyth to Goderich he was able to experience the unique vista from the Mennesetung Bridge overlooking the Maitland River and out to the shore of Lake Huron.
Elmira to Millbank is old hat to Jim, but the next sections from Millbank to Milverton and the on to Walton were more of a challenge and also provided the most memorable moments of his G2G ride. Since he completed his ride there have been more bridges installed at Monkton and Millbank making the route more easily passable by bike but at the time he roughed it over a few fences and detoured again in Walton. It was also on the Perth Harvest Pathway that he shared the trail with a group of Mennonite children on scooters with fat tires as well as a herd of sheep!
After completing all sections of the G2G Jim shared his journey with us and made suggestions for improvements along the trail to ease the passage for future riders, including himself – he plans on doing the whole trail again in a two day trip as soon as it is fully connected.
Thanks Jim – Happy Trails!!
Milverton Kiosk Project Completed
In early December with the help of local Steward Group – The Milverton Lions Club, the installation of another kiosk was completed in Milverton at the trail-head located just off CPR Drive. This kiosk will enhance accessibility to the trail and help to promote, educate and increase public use of the Perth Harvest Pathway section. Once all phases are complete with signage and maps, trail users who live in or visit this community will be greeted with information about the trail, way-finding information for the area, and a resting point. This project was made possible with a grant from our partner the Stratford Perth Community Foundation through the International Plowing Match 2005 Fund.

1st Annual G2G Fall Colours Ride
Sunday October 22nd, 2017, G2G proudly hosted its first Fall Colours Fundraising Ride for Hospital and Hospice. Thirty-four riders took advantage of the gorgeous weather to cycle 28km and raise nearly $11,000. Twenty percent of the funds raised will be put towards the trail while the remainder to the essential works of the AMGH Hospital Foundation and the Huron Residential Hospice.
Hardworking volunteers from G2G, Stratford Perth Community Foundation and Milverton Lions Club joined forces in early December to build and install a new kiosk for your information and resting pleasure! Maps to follow later this year…
Just a quick “humble brag” to remind you of the three new bridges that were installed along the G2G last year in Walton, Monkton and Millbank. Plans are underway for even more bridges over the next 2-3 years as we keep moving forward to our ultimate goal: 147 km of fully accessible, safe and healthy rail trail. In case you wanted to see it again, here’s a link to our video of the Blyth Brook Bridge in Walton. Enjoy!

pub carols with the orange peel carollers Sunday December 17th, 2017 from 2-5pm at
the KIWI, 47 dickson st, cambridge (galt)
Following a time-honoured tradition from the north of England, a group of local friends under the banner of the Orange Peel Carollers will be gathering on Sunday, Dec. 17 at the KIWI to sing what are known as Village or Pub Carols.
These carols are not the standard Christmas stock we hear piped into every mall; they are often more boisterous and secular in nature than the familiar fare.
They have been preserved in the pub environment in several Yorkshire villages for at least the past 200 years. In some cases, these carols were frowned upon by the church of the time, and dropped from the order of service. They were sometimes retained by only one congregation, village, or family and were held with great pride and even jealousy. Pub carols are regaining popularity in England.
The Pub carolling tradition in Canada was started in Ottawa around 1990 and has proven quite popular there.
The song book the group will use for several of the carols is a publication from the Ottawa Folklore Centre entitled The Canadian Pub Caroller. It combines traditional English carols with some long-forgotten early Canadian hymns and carols.
The Orange Peel Carollers like to think that they are doing their part to maintain the tradition and help it take root our local area.
Most of the carols will be unfamiliar to modern ears, but with their folky sound and rousing choruses, some are very easy to learn. Other songs will be more familiar, but with a twist.
If you would like to hear more, or better yet come out and sing along with the group, they invite you to join them at the KIWI, 47 Dickson St, Cambridge (Galt) from 2 P.m. to 5 P.M. A
dmission if Free, but donations for the carollers are welcome.

BULLYING ENDS HERE SHORTLISTED AS A ‘TOP TEN’ CHARITY FOR ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY
Public Encouraged to vote for Bullying Ends Here through Industrial Alliance Website
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 8, 2017
Vancouver, B.C. – Bullying Ends Here and its founder, Tad Milmine, are asking the public for their votes, as the organization vies to win the #1 spot and a $125,000 prize, courtesy of Industrial Alliance, among a group of “Top 10” not-for-profit organizations from across Canada.
For the month of November, the public is being kindly asked to vote for the charity they believe is the most deserving of $125,000.
Bullying Ends Here President and Founder Tad Milmine says: “Thanks so much to Industrial Alliance for this phenomenal opportunity. It is an honour to stand alongside these 9 organizations, each of whom is doing critically important work in communities across the country.”
He adds: “Winning would allow Bullying Ends Here to spend more time in communities, speaking to youth. It would help us reach those that need it most and it would allow us to continue with not only changing lives, but saving them, so we would appreciate your vote.”
Since starting the organization four years ago, Tad has shared his anti-bullying message with over 250,000 youth around the world and has combatted bullying in all forms across the country.
Tad adds: “You can vote once per email address and every vote truly counts. Being able to continue to reach youth and discuss the topics of bullying is invaluable. With your vote, you can help inspire and save these children.”
To encourage voting, Tad is also offering an exciting prize pack to one lucky voter.
About Bullying Ends Here
Calgary Police Constable Tad Milmine spent his teenage years a victim of bullying. In 2011, after reading about the suicide of 15-year-old Jamie Hubley, an openly gay Ontario youth bullied relentlessly for his sexuality, Tad was inspired to take his personal struggle public. He is the founder of Bullying Ends Here and travels across the world speaking with young people about the real effects of bullying. He has spoken all across North America and Europe and has reached close to 250,000 youth in person.
