Trail Conditions

December 4th, 2020 by in Everything

The groomer got out today. I managed most of the Max trails, Ridge, Lolli, Trail to nowhere. I ran out of steam and did not get the max extension or the Stick. This was likely the toughest grooming session I’ve done. First tracks and heavy packing snow as well as lots of trees to clean up.

So Fat Bikes only please (no skinny’s and “plus size” is not a Fat Bike) and if everyone could pitch in and help clear up what’s still left on the trails that would be awesome! We’ll see how the stick is and decide whether it needs grooming or not.

It looks like this is going to stick around for a bit so enjoy the groomed trails!

 

Sunday Fat bike ride 1:30

December 4th, 2020 by in Everything

K & I are going to head out at 1:30 on Sunday for a Fat Bike outing. Should be a great day! As we have now groomed it’s Fat Bike time….

Wednesday night snowshoe

December 2nd, 2020 by in Everything

So we are going to play it safe and go for a snowshoe tonight. We got quite a bit of snow in Mansfield and it should be a really beautiful night out with clear skies and a partial moon.

See everyone tonight!

 

That’s a lot of snow! Wednesday Ride/Snowshoe?? Anyone been out?

December 1st, 2020 by in Everything

That’s a bit of change from Sunday.

I haven’t had a chance to get out and see how things are so I’m not sure if we can manage a ride tomorrow. If anyone has given it a go could you please let me know?

I’ll like likely post up something late day Weds so dust off those snowshoes just in case. I’ll bring the tire along for old time sake…old school grooming!

Dufferin County Survey

November 25th, 2020 by in Everything
Hi everyone, Dufferin County is currently working on a Tourism and Economic Development Strategy (we currently do not have one). There has been a fair bit of consultation done with stakeholders by the Consultants so far.
Dufferin has asked to have a survey completed in order to help with their branding. It’s really simple…10 questions and I was done in less than two minutes.
Please take the time to fill it out if you can. The objective from our stakeholder group will be to demonstrate how important trails are to us so try and fill it out appropriately. You do not need to be a resident of DC to fill it out. The more trail focus we get the better. The deadline is Dec 4th. Thanks!

Wednesday ride on Tuesday this week.

November 22nd, 2020 by in Everything

Hey Wednesday night folks. So we have gotten a fair bit of snow this aft/evening.

Monday is mixed snow & rain. Tuesday is clear and below zero all day. Wednesday is plus 4 and rain all day.

Based on this I’m thinking we would all have a much better time riding on Tuesday night and having our first official all Fat Bike ride of the season!

Same time… 6pm start. Hopefully this works for everyone. I imaging the trails will be really sloppy on weds.

See you Tuesday night.

 

Saturday Ride & Trail Update

November 20th, 2020 by in Everything

Sat ride at 2pm…Fat Bike, Skinny bike??? We’ll see. Trails are great…see below for update!

 

DCF Mansfield Trail update.
We got out today and cleared likely 15 or more (we stopped counting….) downed trees. I believe (hope) we got everything.
A huge thank you to everyone that has been pitching in demonstrating their care for the for the trails. The difference between Wednesday and today is amazing. It’s clear lots of folks have been helping clear up the smaller debris. Sections have actually been raked clean.
I’m very proud to be a part of the Dufferin Forest Cycling community. We have a such a great group of people who obviously love these trails and are not afraid of working hard for them and theses folks are from everywhere, not just locally.
Thanks to everyone who picked up a stick!
The trails are in awesome shape yet again….awesome!

Trail Report..

November 17th, 2020 by in Everything

I was out last night for a run and so was Karen. I ran the Stick and she was out on some of the Max trails.

It’s quite a mess out there after the high winds this past weekend. Luckily only a few “chainsaw trees” so far. It’s mostly small sticks and trees that can be moved by hand.

To get this cleaned up well (and save ripping off derailleurs) it will require a community effort. If everyone stopped their ride for 10 minutes each time they were out there and cleaned up a short section we can have this taken care of in no time. Karen and I both did a bit yesterday and I know others have started.

If anyone comes across larger stuff that requires a chainsaw, please report this back to me and I’ll try and get out to take care of all of them at once.

Thanks for helping take care of the trails!!
