Rode the lower loop and partial upper. Trails are running well overall. They need a ton of work but running well. Someone cut a big bell ringer out at Rathburn and Centennial Park Dr. Thanks!
Hi @singleandfixed I’ve ridden that bit of rail trail a few times. It’s not the best section in my opinion, mostly with regards to views and variety of terrain. It does get interesting towards Peterborough however, with big trestle bridges,
Here is a link to a small trip we did a few years ago. We began from the ballpark at the head of the…[Read more]
@tpratt just raised the bar to the next level. Completing 16 Grind laps in under 8hrs. Thats 76km with 3500m of climbing. Huge!
I was following his efforts all day and he crushed it. I was dying after 10 last year so can fully appreciate what it took to get each meter after that. Following a long recovery from a nasty crash at the endure…[Read more]
Rolled through earlier this week. Rode top to bottom and conditions were good. Thanks to the riders cutting back the overgrowth in the northern loop. We’ve still lost a bunch of trail but its nice to see some effort put forth by others.
Myself and a group of buddies are looking to tackle my idea of an Ontario Triple Crown style ride tomorrow if the weather cooperates.
The ride is outlined briefly in previous posts but it essentially links three of the best climb/descent zones in the Blue Mountains. I’ve actually incorporated a fourth ascent/decent but we may opt out of that as…[Read more]
Hey @8eas It’s actually shocking how well it pedals. This is what most surprised me about the bike. I didn’t buy it with this aspect in mind at all really so that was a nice surprise. It climbs like a beast with tons of support. There is a firm feel and it goes when you hit the gas. It’s a hard bike to categories in that sense. It’s a mid…[Read more]
Welcome to RFG @singleandfixed Thanks for reporting the fallen tree. Rode the whole loop today and saw the tree in question. There are a bunch in there that I need to get to, but simply haven’t had time. There is a tone of work to do to get those trail rolling well again.
It will take many hands.
Over the past few years I have been assembling, what I think will be, an amazing Ontario bikepacking adventure. The loop consists of a roughly 400km pilgrimage through Muskoka’s rugged shield. Loam, slabs and remote lakes.
This was on the calendar last fall but the snow came early. I’m down for some weather but this is a pretty exposed and…[Read more]
Ive always been a fan of high pivot bikes. Ever since those early years ridding Bromont with the Balfa crew, i’ve loved the concept and how the bikes worked for my style of ridding..
The high pivot is making a bit of comeback. Anyone following the past few World Cup seasons has surely seen Amaury Pierron laying waste to the gnarliest tracks…[Read more]

Sad news. We’re not invincible. Thoughts go out to the riders friends and family.
Took a lap through the whole loop last week. Very badly overgrown, particularly in the north section, where we are loosing trails again it’s so bad. Some trees down, one HUGE one in the south that is bigger than my saw can handle. The rest I should be able to remove.
To tackle the growth in the north will take a few guys. I have tools and…[Read more]

Sounds like a fun trip. There are trails in Kincardine. The Bruce site has some good options as well. Carrick Tract is fun. You can also come back part way, but not all the way to Three Stages, and ride Kolapore.
Looks like you had an amazing trip @nyby Stoked for ya!
@dirtseeker and I are heading out Tuesday-Thursday to do the RFG bikepacking social loop. 3 days, 2 nights roughly 350km If anyone would like to join, let me know. I’m doing it on a mountain bike this year.
Also, 65 tear old rider just pre-rode the BT700 and smashed it in 72hrs.…[Read more]
Was out with the Dundas valley builder this weekend and he indicated the trails are still wet. Christie is closed even last I heard. As is the Hydrocut. I haven’t been to Puslinch in a few weeks but it is being ridden. I think if given a day to dry up it should be ok. Three Stage is ok up top depending on the day but wet at the bottom still.
