Thanks for giving everyone a heads up!
Unfortunately I encountered this closure while out for my afternoon ride today… there were no warning signs on the trail so only when I arrived at the fence just before the climb up to Loblaws did I find out. I thought it inconsiderate that they decided to close both the Loblaws climb and the trail…[Read more]
@ Mr. Smith
Too bad it isn’t possible to down vote posts here… Your trail work I enjoy immensely, but your posts here are childish and abusive and do nothing to garner this respect you think you deserve.
Any thoughts on trail conditions today? I check out the Loblaws trail head yesterday evening and a guy just coming off the trail reported muddy conditions in a few spots. Surprising considering how cold it was.
I went out for a paved ride today, but couldn’t resist checking out parts of the dirt trails to see if things were dry enough yet. Rode Rabbit’s Run end to end, and it was in very good condition, and only got soft at the archery range end. Boo trail beside the river is in prime condition. Didn’t attempt the Ridge, but did check out the…[Read more]
Rode tonight 7pm starting at Pottery Rd. The Ridge, Bunny Run, Boo, Swamp, Woods Gundy, Secret Hidden Trail were all very rideable. Surface was sandpaper like with scattered ice, but I never slipped or spun a wheel the whole ride.
Checked out the trails tonight with the fat bike. The trail from Pottery to Cricket tree was mostly packed down with a few icy spots here and there. Had to walk a few hills but mostly due to not having figured out the optimum tire pressures for the first half of my ride.
Some trails have seen no bike traffic and looked impassible, such as…[Read more]
What a difference a day makes. Rode last night and found the trail in surprisingly good condition all the way from Pottery Rd to Sunnybrook. A couple of puddles here and there such as the downline at Pottery and the entrance to Swamp trail, but nothing that couldn’t be avoided. Rabbits Run was in amazing condition and almost completely free…[Read more]
So a short walk up the trail from Pottery Rd trail head was enough to determine that riding the Don tonight would not be recommended. There was no standing water, but the trail was quite slick in spots and the off camber sections had the potential to be dangerous if grip was lost. Perhaps after another day of drying out and assuming we don’t…[Read more]
Oh the cold weather riding isn’t usually a big problem for me… I know the drill and have all the gear for that. Its more dealing with those snow/thaw cycles that we typically get during Toronto winters. The Don clay base can make things really treacherous when you foolishly try to get in a ride and its a bit too close to the melting…[Read more]
Hey, appreciate the updates. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get out yesterday before the rain started and now the weather isn’t looking too good for a while.
Much as I’ve grown to hate winter, the best scenario would be what we had in 2015 where snow came in January and didn’t melt for 2 months. That made for an truly amazing winter of fat…[Read more]
