    There has been some talk of a Dirty Don Ride – a long ‘end of season’ ride where we ride all the dirt in the South, East, West and apparently some of the uncharted North. I think this will be a long (6ish hour?) ride at a moderate pace. All are welcome! The date being tossed around is Sun, Oct 26th, with a 9:00 start, and a rain date of Nov 2. I live a short distance from the trail, and will host an apres BBQ.

    Who is interested? Does that date/time work?

    Yes, but we have to lose the ‘end of season’ designation.

    Sounds cool. Different meet up points would be cool for people to meet up who can’t do the whole thing.

    Work Sundays 🙁 . I’ll check the schedule at work and if someone’s able to cover my shift, I’ll try to take the day off.

    For some idea of what’s involved, here’s my Big Dirty Don Ride from Labour Day 2012, and 2013:

    @ Nick Boers – damn, nice rides Nick. So what did you do after lunch?

    @ Cracker – my bad. Mod, can you edit the subject line?

    I get that there is a big of a legacy that I am elbowing in on here, but having discussed the idea on and off for a few weeks at group rides, I felt like trying to get the wheels in motion. Some og riders that know the North trails would be awesome, and would be nice to ride with some of you guys. Figuring out the route should be interesting as well – the 2013 ride looks pretty good but seems like we should be including Motown. Maybe continue the East branch South from York Mills/Don Mills instead of the Guildwood bit? Will need to include Climbmax and Smith’s Edge as well!

    Here’s all the stuff that we usually ride on Tuesdays and Thursdays, including Smith’s Edge and Boomerang. It’s all nicely put together so we can use this as a starting point and add more stuff in the East (Warden Woods?) and North (Charles Sauriol to Lawrence?).

    Approximately 40km, took me 3.5 hours.

    There is the Halloween ride on November 1st so it may be good to have the rain date the following weekend.

    No worries about the legacy, like I said good on ya for organizing a BDDR. don’t think we’ve had one for a while.
