Founded in 1987, Great Pine Ridge (GPR) is one of the largest sections in the CVMG. The Section currently has more than 100 members and more than 400 classic and vintage motorcycles. GPR represents CVMG members living in Scarborough, as well as Durham and York regions north of Toronto.
The Great Pine Ridge name is derived from the pine forests that abound along the Oak Ridges Moraine, a significant landform in Southern Ontario. The moraine gets its name from the rolling hills and river valleys extending 160 km from the Niagara Escarpment east to Rice Lake. It was formed 12,000 years ago by advancing and retreating glaciers.
GPR Section is very active in the motorcycling community. By hosting and participating in a number of events, members further the aims of the CVMG, to ‘…promote the use, restoration and interest in older motorcycles’.
Being part of the CVMG, the GPR section is a not-for-profit organization.
Shows and Displays
Members have displayed their motorcycles at a number of events, such as: the Toronto Motorcycle Show (Enercare Centre), Copper Kettle Classics (Creemore, ON), the CVMG National Rally (Fairgrounds, Paris, ON) and Brits in the Park (Victoria Park, Lindsay).
GPR Section meets for breakfast every Sunday morning (year round) at Famous Sam's Restaurant on the north east corner of Stouffville Road and Woodbine Avenue (just east of Highway 404).
There are also regular Section meetings. The purpose of these meetings is to socialize and to transact any Section business. During the winter, meetings are held at the Highland Creek Legion starting at 7:30PM. During the riding season, meetings are held at various venues. See GPR's Events Calendar for more information and the dates of upcoming meetings.
Famous Sam's is the departure point for many of the GPR section rides. We ride to most shows and displays, as well as a Fall Colours Tour and a ‘Green Lane Tour' which takes us on the lesser travelled roads of Southern Ontario

In his place, the Executive agreed to appoint Jason Hart, current Correspondence Secretary, as interim President for the remainder of Brock's term.
