    I’m in for what should be a steamy ride this evening.

    @gravityalan beers on you!

    I’ll be the slow damp husk of a dehydrated man off the back, if this “heat warning” actually takes affect.

    Hey guys I’m looking for a group to ride the DV with. How many kms is typical? Are the Thursday rides anymore relaxed as far as pace? Thanks!

    Hey @odin333 – I can say that this is a great group to play bikes with. Typically the rides are around 25k or so. Recently the group has been a bit speedy, but don’t let that dissuade you, as we love showing new folks the trails and don’t mind waiting.

    Thursday can be a bit of a slower pace depending on who shows up for the ride.

    Marko – way to soon too soon to make that call. I’m the slowest in the group and I, like you, felt bad that “they” had to wait – then I realized they don’t care. You’re not asking much of this group at all. Come out Thursday night so I have someone “not fast” to ride with.

    Good meeting you on the tail end of the ride, I’ll provide the après next time 😉

    Should be a beauty evening for a ride ! (and more importantly, apres).

    Hey guys! I’m new to this thread – and to mountain biking. In fact I’ve never tried it before, but it looks awesome and I want to give it a shot.

    Can anyone here recommend a good place for renting a mountain bike? I’d like to try it out a few times with a rental before I commit to purchasing my own bike. For reference, I live near Danforth and Coxwell.

    Happy trails!

    Fun ride last night. I uploaded some of the photos from the GoPro – it was a bit too dark to get any really sharp ones but they captured the action pretty well:

    Haven’t gone through the video yet but I’ll post some of it as soon as I can…

    @a-hill these are bonkers, thank you so much! The night photos look like Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    Well worth the trouble!

    Although this one by @whisky_cactus sums it up for me.

    Thanks @micah356 – if you have time that would be awesome. I’ll find a place to upload it so you can grab it.

    Here is the onboard view of SkyPilot:

    This seems way less scary in the video. The quality and stillness is amazing though!
