GHRC History … in the making
Golden Horseshoe Riding Club or GHRC was born when Jim (Ram) Marlor and Jim (Phoenix) Kerr, decided there was room for a club that was more concerned with riding motorcycles and having fun than politics. The clubs we have been involved with in the past have always been fun, we are sure they still are but another club gives everyone another night to ride and riding with friends is always fun.
Ram and Phoenix both have a background in running family oriented motorcycle clubs in the Hamilton area over the years and on April 16th 2012 decided it was time to start a motorcycle riding club that was about fun, friends and safety. Since most of our riding and friends are in the Golden Horseshoe area, it made it simple to come up with a club name.
What makes this club different?
I guess the answer to that is our members.
The GHRC was founded on the principal ‘less is more.’ We do not want to be the largest club, we want to be a good club. A club that puts its members first and members who are loyal to their club.
We have a cap on our membership and if the GHRC opens other chapters, they will have a cap on membership as well. So, if your looking for a club that cares more about its members than the numbers of members, we might be the Riding Club your looking for.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Golden Horseshoe is a subregion of Southern Ontario, Canada which lies at the western end of Lake Ontario with outer boundaries stretching south to Lake Erie and north to Georgian Bay. The region is densely populated and industrialized. Most of it is also part of the Quebec City – Windsor Corridor and the Great Lakes Megalopolis. With a population of 8.76 million people in 2011, the Golden Horseshoe makes up over 26% of the population of Canada and contains more than 68% of Ontario’s population, making it one of the largest population concentrations in North America. Although it is a geographically named sub-region of Southern Ontario, the Greater Golden Horseshoe is also used today to describe the metropolitan region that stretches across the area in totality, including smaller centres outside of the core region.
The core of the region starts from Niagara Falls at the eastern end of the Niagara Peninsula and extends west, wrapping around the western end of Lake Ontario at Hamilton and then turning northeast to its anchor city Toronto (on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario), before finally terminating at Oshawa, just east of Toronto. The wider region spreads inland in all directions away from the Lake Ontario shoreline, southwest to Brantford, west to the Kitchener-Waterloo area, north to Barrie, and northeast to Peterborough. The whole region’s area covers approximately 33,500 km2 (13,000 sq mi), out of this, 7,300 km2 (2,800 sq mi) is covered by the environmentally protected Greenbelt.
