That’s right, EVERY Thursday at 7pm, Loblaws Redway Road Trail Head.
Now in its 12th great season!
I had hoped some of you would’ve removed your training wheels by now.
Pop a wheelie!
Yes, I’m actually going to ride tonight. Unless it rains too much.
See you out there!!
Agreed. Was still pretty muddy on Tuesday, but was great to be back up there.
This is my first time having a season pass, but I will also be away for at least six weeks of the season… So I have to get my laps in while I can.
Definitely wasn’t ideal conditions to be riding with Bontrager XR2s on the bike, but I made it work.
Looks interesting. I’ve recently (ie. today) become interested in this idea of overnight rides. So I decided to do one this coming Friday.
I find it hard to plan time for the longer rides in between other ‘bigger’ travel plans, but a single day or two is much easier.
Friday I’ll take the GO train in the afternoon to Hamilton, ride to Turkey…[Read more]
Out this morning on the boot pack and it is softening up. Today will be crucial with the temperatures dropping, whatever is rutted today is likely to remain rutted until this time next week (if one is to believe the forecast). If you can shuffle your day to ride after the temperature drop the reward should be real. Expecting fast and smooth…[Read more]
Fresh snow on glazed ice now. Studded tires (and footwear) are highly recommended.
It was slick to say the very least yesterday before the snow started and this is not likely to make it a lot better without a bit of packing. Expect conditions to be extremely slippery, not dissimilar to the wet leaves on slick clay effect we get in the spring and fall.
I recently did the Old Ghost Road in New Zealand. It was a hell of a ride to choose as my first ever bikepacking experience. Certainly will be hard to follow in Ontario, but it did totally sell me on the overall bikepacking idea.
I was staying in huts so didn’t need a tent. The middle part of that trail is pretty rocky and technical, so…[Read more]
A lot of my camping gear is due for replacement, so I’m using the downtime this winter to piece it all together with an eye to the light and compact for bikepacking.
What have you guys been using so far?
Can’t really say it’s got to do with the holidays, but got a “road” bike and back to the trainer for some structure over the winter. I’ve got my time split with about 75% of my time on the bike still occurring outdoors. I’m hoping to do some bigger longer rides out in the snow, but life tends to get in the way so getting the 2-3 hour rides in has…[Read more]
BT700 looks cool. Although I think calling it “great divide style” is probably a bit of a stretch! Hoping to do at least 2 or 3 good bikepacking rides this season, this will be on the list for sure.
I’ve been using a pair of these. They weren’t cheap, but three years later they’re still killing it..
One on the helmet, one on the bar. The remote is really handy for managing the battery. Flipping it to low while climbing or medium while just spinning along really helps. The high…[Read more]
FYI – this flyer showed up in my mailbox yesterday and a matching sign has been posted on the hill down from Horner.
It says the trail will remain open on evenings and weekends – I hope so because this is…[Read more]
Ha, Outside Van, drool…. we saw quite a variety of ‘rigs’ out West this Summer that had made the trek across the country. Those are by far the cat’s meow!
We opted for the Outback due to the 3.6 vs. the older 2.5 or 2.0XT in the Forester (the new 2.5 wasn’t out yet). Fully loaded with people and gear we felt that the extra ponies would come…[Read more]
