Fun TVG Swag!!

October 2nd, 2020 by in Everything

TVG now has it’s own face covering, neck warmer, headband, “head warmer” (under your helmet)….(like a Buff).

Great for lots of stuff.

If you donated $25 or more to TVG in 2020 you get one for free! If you want one, just donate $25 or more to the cause.

Come see me when in the parking lot and let me know you qualify as I’ll have them with me. I’ll see how many folks I can get them to this way and if I need to I may consider mailing some out (only if required ). You can also pick one up on some one else behalf if you know they donated.

Hi everyone, please be advised that as of Oct 1st hunting is permitted in various County Forest Tracts including the Main Tract.

There is no hunting allowed on Sundays in the Main Tract.

Please wear bright colours, make your presence known and be aware of your surroundings and if you take your dog, best to get a hi-vis vest for them as well (hunting for coyote and fox is permitted from now until may 31st).

Stay safe and enjoy the trails!

Fun Fat Bike news!!!

September 14th, 2020 by in Everything

Hmmm, what’s this all about???

It’s been floating around out there…Mansfield Outdoor Centre will be opening this year for Fat Biking on weekends! We’ve been working with them on grooming techniques and MOC single track trails and they are set to go this winter.

The end result will be approx 5-7km of groomed MOC single track, 30 plus kms of groomed MOC 2 track and then you can still access the 18km’s of groomed single track in DCF. No more freezing in an unplowed parking lot as there will always be somewhere inside to change and grab a bite or refreshment.

Lots of details to come in the next few weeks.  Is it too early to get excited about Fat Biking???

Feel free to pass this on to anyone that you think may be interested.

 

Sunday Ride…Hardwood Hills

September 8th, 2020 by in Everything

As a bunch of us are doing the Epic 8 next week (2 TVG solos, two TVG teams of 4 and a guest solo….so far!) we are going to ride HWH on Sunday.

2 pm start. Anyone is welcome to join in. This will be weather permitting so if rain is in the forecast for Sat/Sunday check for any updates to make sure it’s still a go. No news is good news.

Airport Road Closure Notice

September 7th, 2020 by in Everything

Just a reminder to anyone travelling Airport Rd next week. Airport Rd will be completely closed from Sept 8th-Sept 11th inclusive from Dufferin Rd 17 (lights in Mansfield) to Dufferin Rd 21 (flashing light north of River Rd, old Foxy Burger Rd).

 

These directions are coming from the South.

The best way to get to DCF will be to turn left (west) at the lights in Mansfield and go to the 4th line. Turn right on the 4th (north) and go to the 20th Sideroad (River Rd). Then turn right (east) on the 20th to Airport Rd and turn right (south) on Airport Rd to DCF. It will add 10-15 minutes to your drive.
