Videos of Dufferin – Substance Projects

April 10th, 2018 by in Everything

Good morning all,

 

Was asked by Dan to pass along the below video of the trails at Dufferin.  Apparently there are a few large trees down, which he is hoping to have cleared today.

 

There is still some snow and ice, and well hopefully by the race it will be gone as we are expecting well above freezing temps.

 

And a reminder of what 3 years ago was like.


 

Cheers

XC Marathon Series: Homage to Ice

April 2nd, 2018 by in Everything

Well it is that time of year again, and the racing for 2018 begins.

As always we start with the XC Marathon series hosted by Substance Projects, the Homage to Ice, running at the Dufferin Forest.

Why would you race it you ask, well there are many reasons to.  I have listed them in order by number below….

  1. Because you get to ride your bike in Dufferin Forest, with orange arrows everywhere, and you wont in theory get lost!
  2. Because you will have fun
  3. Because of reason number 2
  4. Because it is an amazing atmosphere and you meet and see alot of new and old friends.
  5. Because Dan, Ron, Florance and the girls doing the timing booth make it so much fun.
  6. Because of reason number 2
  7. Because you get to ride your bike.

 

That should be enough reasons to do it.

How long is the race, well based on the website approx 1.5hr for half marathon.

Reminder, to please be mindful of the trails, if they are too soft, not only at Dufferin but other locations, to stay off and let them dry out, it will be way better for everyone!

Trail Update

March 28th, 2018 by in Everything

Good morning All,

 

Based on the trail conditions, and the reports from various people, tonight’s ride will most likely consist of fire-road and gravel roads.

With the melting snow and the rain, everything is pretty soft still.  We don’t want to go out and rut up the trails.

Recommend still riding the fat bike tonight.

 

Cheers

 

 

Team Van Go on Facebook

March 26th, 2018 by in Everything

Well with the ever changing world and social media, and the popularity of the Instagram account, we have started up a team van go Facebook page.

 

The premise behind this, is to allow everyone to put in feedback, and ride updates, post photos etc.

The website will still be the main place for a lot of information etc, and the Facebook page will allow folks to communicate.

You can click on the big F below to be redirected.

 

 

We want to reach out to more people, and promote what Dufferin County and the forests have to offer.

 

Cheers
