Sunday ride 1PM, Mansfield Outdoor Centre

January 19th, 2020 by in Everything

MOC is open today for Fat biking so we are going to head there for a ride. Parking is at the Main Lodge and it will be $15 for a day pass. They groomed late last night/this morning so hopefully the trails will have time to set up by 1pm.  This will be a 2 track ride as all the single track will likely be a bit buried.

1pm start time and you can bring a snack and beverage to enjoy after in the Main Lodge.

Sunday Fat Biking -Mansfield Outdoor Centre is open for Fat Biking!

January 18th, 2020 by in Everything

Hi everyone. If you are looking to get a ride or ski in tomorrow Mansfield Outdoor Centre is opening their trails for Fat Biking tomorrow (Sunday). They are grooming the ski trails tonight and will have a section beside that for Fat Biking. There should be 25 plus km’s of trails groomed. The Dufferin Forest Fat Bike single track is under a bunch of snow and may or may not be passable until we groom again. You can give it a try if you like.

Parking will be at the Main Lodge (not the Field Centre) and a day pass is $15 for as much riding as you like. You will have access to the Main Lodge to get set up, warm up between outings and chill out afterwards. You will purchase your pass there.

This should provide a great option for groomed trail riding.

Bring you Fat Bike and skis is you are adventurous!

Saturday Ride 11AM/Trail Condition Update

January 17th, 2020 by in Everything

11am start on Saturday.

All 18km’s of single track is freshly groomed so hopefully if we get out at 11 we will be ahead of the big snow fall. Trails should be awesome tomorrow. I put up the orange cone this afternoon to discourage riding the trails as I just finished grooming and they are still soft. They will set up well tonight so if the first person out tomorrow could move the cones that would be great.

I did the Stick and Lolli twice. Why? To try and break up and pack in the ruts that someone left behind from the other day. If we could all pay attention when we are out there especially after we have just groomed. If you are leaving imprints deeper than an inch, or you can’t make many of the climbs without spinning and walking, the groomed trails are likely too soft. There is lots else to ride that we don’t groom. These ruts where visible even under 5″ of fresh snow.

Thanks and see you tomorrow!

 

Trail Report

January 16th, 2020 by in Everything

Trails are back up and good to go. Groomer was out today again and 80% of trails are all freshly machine groomed. The weekend should be great and we’ll need to see how much snow we get on Saturday.

Have fun!

 

Weds update****trails are soft!!***

January 15th, 2020 by in Everything

Sorry about the lateness of this but I just got a call from the Forest (well actually Chris!) and the trails are softer than expected. We likely will not be riding single track tonight and may have to find another option out there. I’ll still be showing up and we can check it out from there and try and find some 2 track to ride to save the 1 track.

See you1

 

Trail Condition Update

January 14th, 2020 by in Everything

Chris and I got out for a ride last night…

Trails are all in great shape, all “bike groomed”. Every trail has had traffic on it and is all ridable. The Yellow ski trail is also machine groomed and as they are not being used for skiing yet they are great for a Forest Tour.

One of our hard working groomer crew is out as we speak so there will be some machine groomed single track by the end of today and another crew member cleaned up a bunch of debris that came down from the ice. That is going to be amazing!

Hopefully winter sticks around and things begin to remain consistent.

12:30 Sunday ride

January 12th, 2020 by in Everything

Now that we have snow again Karen and I are going to head out at 12:30 for a ride. We have about 2-3 inches of fresh snow and we are hoping it has stuck to the awesome base that Chris set down last week.

Weds Ride and Trail Conditions

January 8th, 2020 by in Everything

There will be a ride tonight at 6pm. Lots of fresh snow since the weekend and one of our awesome groomer crew did a marathon night groom last night. All FB trails except Stick have been machine groomed and should of set up nicely last night. So ride them while you can…more rain and plus temps coming….Grrrr! At least there will be a great base packed in.

 

Trail Conditions-Jan 3rd

January 3rd, 2020 by in Everything

Trails are in great shape, but really soft as yesterday, last night and today are all above zero. If possible, please avoid trails today as you are likely just going to rut them up. It’s going below zero tonight so trails should be amazing for the weekend. Any ruts will just freeze into the trails and are extremely difficult to get rid of once it does get below zero.

Thanks!

 

Saturday Ride 11am-DCF

December 27th, 2019 by in Everything

Off we go for a scoot tomorrow, 11am start. It’s going to go below zero tonight so we’ll see how it goes tomorrow. Studs will likely be an asset and we’ll get a ride in…not sure what we will ride but I’m sure we will get up to something.

I got out for a hike (and some trail work) today and there definitely is a complete range of trail conditions from pure ice, to snow to dirt.
