I’ve seen them in two locations generally. The “Fish ladder” on the souther end of Crothers Woods (it’s marked on google maps) and up at the end of Motown. I’d assume that the banks south and north of the milwood bridge would be a good spot to see them as it’s fairly narrow and relatively shallow though I’ve not spent much time there outside of winter.
This is just a particular section of the ridge. The vast majority of the skinnies are long gone and anything newly constructed on the ridge and spoken of in public forum can expect an extremely swift demise. If you’re keen to find the features in the Don I’d highly recommend catching the Tuesday Night ride as it’s the quickest way to finding a…[Read more]
On foot this morning everything low in the valley from Eglinton to Pottery was still highly saturated and resulted in a lot of walking out in the open fields. If I was riding today I’d likely (if the forecast holds) be looking at the flats, boo trail (river adjacent only) the swamp skipping across the river into the parking lot for serena gundy…[Read more]
I’m gonna be “that guy” because I’d actually love to see your event be a huge success. I’ve seen some of the photo’s from the past events and it sure looks like a great time. Huge thanks for putting it all together over the years.
Managed to dig this up from a previous event, do the details still looking like this?
And by showing up. I’m…[Read more]
First ride in far too long and this evening was outstanding!
Tacky goodness. only wet spots were where the water crosses in volume
Same story, Tacky and amazing
Ideal. Reconstructed berm and table top are flowy, but table top could be longer! Ridiculous shit teeter totter is back upright and still a busted POS, worth avoiding and boosting the…[Read more]
I agree with the later half of this wholeheartedly, but believe we can change that. Unfortunately (for the former half) there is a map, and we communities need to embrace that like we have done here on RFG and use it to better and grow our community. I still need a quick tutorial on how to embed maps with reports and such, but I’m extremely…[Read more]
Hey @noremac11 This kinda sums up what the hold up is on more progress to a large degree.
Additionally the Ridge as we know it is on the low priority end of the spectrum with the overall design. It is a trail, it runs well, and requires relatively minimal maintenance. From my understanding the initial work to develop the path system accessed…[Read more]
Hard to explain how stoked I am to read this. I know it wasn’t the easy choice, but I think it’s the best one and one that helps build a community and draws in more folks to the conversation. rather than creating even more “pokemon go” riders glued to their phones trying to sort our their route.
Have you poked Brent about getting some RFG tags in…[Read more]
Small losses, small victories.
Looks to me like the intended path sets a bridge in place that will open access to STD’s that is otherwise significantly less traveled. Additionally it looks like it’s opening up some of the terrain on the Linkwood side of the river north of Mowtown. I’ve been watching this develop at it’s standard glacial pace and…[Read more]

Agreed with @fasttimes on avoiding the Fuel. Those proprietary shocks aren’t a whole lot of fun to deal with a decade later and a fair while beyond seeing Trek move to other designs. My take away from my experience with the Specialized FSR linkages of that generation was that it pedaled particularly poorly unless it had a functional brain shock…[Read more]
Someone more Shimano savvy might correct me in this, but the J04C pads (finned, metal, XT etc grade) are the ones to go for. They tend to outlast and out perform the G04S. Aside from that getting your brakes bled by a qualified/trusted mechanic with some frequency tends to make a very real difference. I get someone more qualified than me…[Read more]
Everything was pretty prime this morning.
Catalyst – Hero Dirt
Rimjob – Some greenery is starting to grow back in, but still completely viable
Party Atmosphere – checking all the fast fun and flowing boxes
The Swamp – So Dry!
Woods Gundy – Couple new stone side booters are super fun, but not to be confused with the non-booter rocks
SHT/SSHT -…[Read more]
IF the weather predictions are to be believed, we’re in for some weather shortly with it clearing up shortly after that…
We’ve got a man on the ground down in the valley to report post “weather” conditions for this evening too. Hoping for minimal precipitation here, I wanna ride bikes!
WOW did that radar/forecast ever miss the mark… Sunny Drive home at 5:30 and now 6mm of rain in 30 mins with a massive storm front that ought to last most of the evening… hope everyone is dry (physically) and enjoying beverages as responsibly as possible.
Looks like minimal if any precipitation leading up to 7pm and while there is a high probability of ~1mm/hour from 7 on I’d hazard a guess that the canopy can handle that. With the sun out and the wind up a bit earlier today I’d even bet the ground could handle 1-2mm before it started to get questionable.
Might not make it for 7, might not make it…[Read more]
The much needed rain is all but absorbed. Conditions last evening were as close to perfect when moving as it gets, stop and you found out how humid it was in an instant.
The Flats: On the side of overgrown
The Ridge: Absolutely mint
Boo: Excellent as usual
The Swamp: Dry, not even sure what to say about that
SHT/SSHT:both clear and…[Read more]
