Many thanks to all the Cruise the Coast sponsors for inviting the Ontario Barn Quilt Trails to participate at the big motorcycle show in January. The waterproof map showing barn quilt trails in Ontario’s Southwest is a big hit with motorcyclists looking for the best rides. Tourism marketing groups were well represented at the show, so Mary and Denise made the rounds, encouraging them to support and promote trails in their regions.
