Got out on the Fat Bike last night and again this morning.
Cleared of a few felled trees (thanks hydro!) and running frozen, but well rutted from our CX friends doing what they do, not much concern on the big tires, but regular mountain and CX bikes may get hung up a bit.
Same as the Flats. Frozen and fun.
Still free of the ice sheet that it…[Read more]
@fasttimes – Make sure you follow the directions about bedding those studs in. I’ve got two friends that didn’t and had studs flying out of them in a real hurry.
@soban that looks super fun, but I think that pace may have something to do with all your effort over the last year!
My rig is really just an evolution this season. Elliptical chain…[Read more]
Out on the Fat Bikes last evening and the trails were thoroughly frozen up by 7:00 last night. If the forecast holds tonight and Thursday are going to be pretty much perfectly frozen dirt as well.
Prime. Everything has wholeheartedly died back, sight lines are as good as they get and even the frozen ruts aren’t too bad. Worth noting the Bell…[Read more]
I’m reading between the lines here and assuming you mean you’re contemplating the new M685’s…
I’m a big fan of the 3.8’s this time of year for all the reason I mentioned above about hard packed… There’s not much in the way of snow, so it’s more or less magic carpet season on the Farley EX until we get our first real good snow storm.
I did…[Read more]
You bet. I’ve got some time scheduled to go through a season debrief later this week and I’ll be sure to express the continued and growing desire to see more TTF’s. I’m certain the ladder skinnies of old are thoroughly out of the question between their maintenance requirements and the nightmare that bruce county went through with theirs, but…[Read more]
Just got off the road home and the snow falling on the 401 across the top of the city is just melting and making a proper mess of things up here. I’m not sure if the ground is actually frozen or if it’s just going to be getting wet and slick as well, but gonna take a pass in favour of hopefully riding in the morning after the overnight lows
I’ll preface this all with you really have to chose which hill you want to die on in these scenarios.
Based on your photo I’m looking at less than 2 minutes to undo the work you’ve done to close the line. The debris may be plentiful, but it’s light weight and easily removed by an individual.
IF you want to close that off in a more effective and…[Read more]
On foot this morning things were very bipolar on the Sunnybrook loop. Either clear and super dry or slick wet leaves holding water. The end of Roller Flowster and start or Foreplay appears to have gotten a serious rework I hadn’t seen mentioned. It looks a lot faster with a ton more flow.
With the additional rain that started coming down this…[Read more]
Plenty of leaves down nearly everywhere keeping things a little more slick. Overall conditions were excellent and I’d highly recommend getting after it before the rain if you can.
Excellent and clear of leaves, the water in the crossing as you leave the parking lot is a little deeper than it has been recently
The cold overnights finally have…[Read more]
Crushed to be out of county for this one…
Additional recommendation – Bring what you need for any potential repairs. Tube? Sealant? Chain Link? We had some down time last year with flats and other mechanical shenanigans that I’m sure everyone (especially mechanics) would be pleased to avoid.
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]
