@nyby, might be interested in joining for another bikepack overnighter, would prob make own way back on day 2 in the name of time and family management just like last year, but as i havent done 100k in a couple years day one should be plenty of challenge for me. I’m putting it in the calendar and hope to have it locked in solidly within next…[Read more]
not to threadjack but question for you @fasttimes. i got a last minute morning job near kelso and was planning to ride there after work tmrw am. any reason to choose agreement forest? im happy to ride anything new and never been to either. any recommended routes/trails? I can piece a ride together on trailforks but figured you cant beat first…[Read more]
wow, nice surprise to see this is still going ahead!
My availability has shifted slightly, the family had booked sat away as i was going to be gone all weekend, but when this trip looked doa yesterday we made plans to do something together monday.
So as it stands, the most i could do would be Sat to Albion and then make my own way back…[Read more]
Going to try and expand my local riding beyond the don this year. Can anyone give suggestions on the best places to hit within an hour of Toronto? the tougher tricker and more technical the better…..
i just got word that i will be back in town from work on 18th so looks like i can make this work! havent done anything bigger than 50-60km days so far this year but have pushed to 100km in past on less milage so feel up to the challenge…..
great pic! this trip just keeps looking more and more amazing. I will know within next few days if i’m working out of town on 17-19th, which will dictate my involvement in the weekend…..even if i cant do day 1 I plan to find a way to join up, looks to good to miss
Yeah, driving down the DVP today I looked in the woods and saw slim to no chances of Sat being a go…..Im doing paris to ancaster on sunday so gonna have to take it easy on the ride and afterwards but look forward to coming down and shaking off this crappy winter season! look fwd to meeting some of y’all there
if i was shopping for a bike in ON and not planning to hit blue with it, the new rocky mountain thunderbolt would be top of my list…rode the optic at the don demo day last year and it was a great bike…but that thunderbolt just seems so much ‘moreish’
just logged in and saw this proposal, sounds amazing! i am freelance and work out of town last minute often so can never be sure if ill be available so far from the date, but this personally ticks all the boxes for bike adventures i’d like to take on this year so tentatively count me in! proposed elora route looks great, quite big days but s…[Read more]
what is “early”? i have to get my kids to school
in the am so between that and commuting over to the don im looking at 9:30 start, is everything warming and up and getting soft by then? im fiending like crazy to get back in the don
yes thank you trail fairies, never seen anyone all year but the foreplay/fiveplay transition makes it very apparent how much your work helps. yesterday was amazing, felt like the last man on earth in the don. prime conditions and not a soul to be seen, besides people yelling at dogs in the distance.
i noticed bunny poop riding smoother, put it…[Read more]
I owned a trainer in the
past and haaaaaated it, it was also way too noisy to use in a shared space at the time. I now have a garage i could set up in and am extremely motivated to keep my bike fitness up and hopefully improved over the winter season….but still hesitant to shell out for a trainer after my unimpressive initial experience with it.…[Read more]
Slayer is such a sick bike! demoed it in the don this week, despite some less than optimal tuning (loose headset that almost killed me off a jump) i was blown away by its handling….funny thing was though it felt like i was going down faster than i ever had, upon checking strava at end of run, i had no fastest times down, but plenty of pb climbs!…[Read more]
Wow, Barbados looks to have ON options beat on all fronts!
Puslinch about half the distance compared to turkey point so aiming for there….fingers crossed weather holds and can get first dirt run of year in tomorrow.
Thanks for the recommendations
Hey all, looks like tomorrow or thurs will be my only april day to go ride, where would be my best bet in and around an hour or two of GTA to have an inaugural run of the bike? not explored much of ontario so up for anywhere….
