Sunday Ride 11am

December 15th, 2018 by in Everything

We are going to start tomorrow’s ride at 11am. Forecast is well below zero tonight so hopefully the trails firm up overnight. It should be 0-2 degrees during our ride so the trails shouldn’t soften up while we are out there. If they are not suitable to ride then we will hit the fire road. See you!

 

Weds Ride report & Weekend thoughts

December 13th, 2018 by in Everything

As we expected, trails were great last night. There were 13 of us out on Fat Bikes and put in a 22km single track ride. Trails were fast and hardpacked. We got about an inch of fresh snow overnight so that should make it even better.

Friday and the weekend is going to be tricky…daily high temps from plus 4-2 between Friday and Sunday. Not too cold overnight as well, barely below zero, except Saturday night-low of -4.

As always please respect all the hard work we have put in snowshoeing and pulling a tire around 17km of trails to groom them out to what they are. Ruts (even small ones) are easy to leave when above freezing but are very difficult to get rid of when it freezes. Our advice for the weekend would be to keep an eye on the hourly temp forecasts and ride in the morning when the temps are cooler if required. We will likely wait until Sunday for our group ride as Saturday night is the coldest. It looks like it may be a beautiful weekend!

Monday Ride/Trail Condition Report

December 4th, 2018 by in Everything

Chris and I got out last night for a scoot and had a great ride! We didn’t know what to expect but everything was in excellent shape. Mostly snow covered, some dirt trails (along the ridge and other random spots) and very little ice (one really slick spot right at the first few turns in the single track).  We rode everything but Ken’s & Steve’s and it was all fast and fun.

Looks like a great week ahead and the weekend looks perfect so should be a great time for an awesome group ride.

Enjoy!

This week’s activities!

December 3rd, 2018 by in Everything

Rides are posted, I was out yesterday for a run on the double track. Still snow on the single track so trails should be good for Fat Bikes…no skinnies please! Hopefully we get a touch of snow this afternoon.

Trail Conditions/Weekend Riding

December 1st, 2018 by in Everything

I was out yesterday for a ride. Trails are in absolutely great shape after all the snowshoeing & grooming efforts combined with a good number of consistent fat bike riders. There is several inches of packed snow with very little ice.

Having said that it’s already above freezing this morning (8:30am) and just getting warmer (plus 2 today and plus 10 tomorrow!).

It would be detrimental to the trails to either ride or hike them this weekend. Riding and hiking the trails will just leave indentations that will freeze in the trail and they are tough to get ride off. You may be able to get in a Fat Bike ride this morning before it warms up too much. Sunday…no way.

If you are ever on the trails use the 1/2 depression County Code of Conduct ByLaw rule which states if you are leaving more than a 1/2 depression you are to refrain from using the trail. There is still lots of winter ahead!  Thanks for respecting all the hard work put in by everyone so far.

Weds ride update/info

November 27th, 2018 by in Everything

Chris and I got out for a ride last night. We stuck to the double track as things were a bit soft. Still got a 90 min ride in. Regarding Weds ride…we should be able to hit the singletrack as temps should be at the freezing point. How will it go?? Not sure as we did get a bit of snow so likely it will be a ride-and-groom. I’d advise bringing along snowshoes if you have them just in case as we can always get a good grooming hike in as well. See you Weds night!

 

Trans Epic–We’re going!

November 26th, 2018 by in Everything

Looks like there are a few takers for the May Pennsylvania stage race. Monica is joining me!  Other friends of TVG and locals Linda, Craig and Luke are going as well for the 5 day race. There have been a few others thinking about it and it’s looking like a possible good group heading down for Friday to Tuesday for some fun pleasure riding and cheering us on. Monica and I are both signing up at the Dec 1st slot and likely travelling down on the Wednesday and returning Tuesday (racing goes weds-mon).

I’ve been communicating with Ryan the race director and they are incredibly accommodating for both us racing and those spectating. He’s given us lots of options for food and camping.  If you have any questions or concerns let me know and I can forward them on to him.

Heading out for 1pm to ride a bit with snowshoes in backpack, then switch to snowshoes and pull the groomer for a bit, then back to riding! Feel free to join in…
