Fun Video

You may recognize the guy in the video.

Found this and figure in the summer why not start thinking about fat biking.

 

No matter what you find in the forest or parking lot, you never know, it could be ridden and fun for someone.

 

Cheers

Saturday Equestrian Event Notice

August 10th, 2017 by in Everything

Hey everyone, just a quick note to let anyone using Dufferin Forest on Saturday  (August 12th) that there is an organized group equestrian event planned for that day (Trail Ride for Breast Cancer).  I had a nice chat with Debra who organizes the event and the route will be following the Pink Loop of the equestrian marked trails.  The single track does cross this trail in various places and runs parallel at times, so please exercise caution (and ring your bell or make your presence known) as you approach the equestrian trail or see a rider. If you don’t have a bell we encourage you to get one as it aids in notifying other users of your presence, much better than yelling!) They are also doing a food drive for the local food bank so if you would like to donate feel free to drop your food donation off at the “south” parking area. As a mountain biker you will be well received. Thanks in advance for co-operating with this event.

Sausage Suit ITT & Kampout – Save the Date

August 10th, 2017 by in Everything, Links

SSITT & Camp Out 2017!  Dufferin Forest Trails. 

That’s correct, back by popular demand, Team Van Go will be hosting the camping again, after the race.  Bring your BBQ, pitch your tent (or trailer, or Van!) , have dinner then enjoy the evening around a campfire.  Sing some songs, enjoy trail stories and meet some new people!

We have use of a large grassy area with plenty of room to camp for the evening after the race. And it’s free with your entry fee!  Portapotties from the race will be on site still, so no worries there.

 

Date:  October 14th, 2017

 

Registration is not yet open, but will be soon.  Once registration opens we will let everyone know!

 

SausageRider

 

The premise of the SSITT is an individual start with 30 seconds between each rider….no mass start, no crowds!  This also means lots ‘o single track, not so much double track. Options for the Bike are 15km or 30km (approx.).

 

The course will be a single lap (16km) or two laps (32km) of the single track exclusively in Dufferin Forest.

 

Did you do the race last year???? Well the course is going to be the same, so compare you lap times from last year…. Try and beat yourself!!!

 

For anyone wanting to see what the course looks like, below is the gps link. (Sorry for the choppy looking gps)


Remember the key to this is have fun and above all, have a lot of fun.  (and enjoy a beer afterwards)

 

Please no drinking and driving.

 

If you have questions pertaining to the camp out, please contact me through the CONTACT tab at teamvango.ca

 

Hope to see you out there!

OCTRA trail maintenance assistance

August 3rd, 2017 by in Everything

Hey everyone, don’t know if anyone is around to lend Mike from OCTRA a hand Friday morning.  He is riding the “pink loop” on an ATV (you would get to hop on the back with him) to clean up any debris in order to provide Debra’s Ride For Cancer a clean loop next weekend for their fundraising event. I believe it’s just the pink loop which is about 10km long.  A great excuse for a Friday tour of the forest with Mike!  If you are interested let me know.  He is likely leaving at 9-9:30 Friday am.  Thanks! Johnny
