Good morning All,

Saturday Ride/Trail Report

April 11th, 2019 by in Everything

We got out for our Wednesday night ride last night to scout things out. We rode everything but Ken’s/Steve’s trail and happy to report that this Saturday will be “Skinny Saturday”! Time to put the Fat Bikes away….

There was still a bit of snow in places but nothing that wasn’t manageable and the trails are dry enough that there shouldn’t be any damage caused. Please be careful on Ken’s/Steve’s as I can’t comment on those trails.

Saturday’s ride will start at 11:30. It is suppose to be a beautiful day so come on out for a ride. If you wish, bring a snack (lunch?) for afterwards as we will likely hit the patio at TVG headquarters afterwards. We will likely do the Sausage Suit Course (which is next weekend!!!) which has been redesigned for 2019 to include even more sweet single track! See you there…yeah SPRING!!!!!

Don’t ask me why this is in a foreign language, the link will take you to an English website!?

Shawna’s B-day Ride

March 28th, 2019 by in Everything

Good morning all!

This coming Sunday will be Shawna’s bday ride. Come on out at 11am to enjoy a tour through Dufferin Forest, as Shawna regales us with stories of bike rides past, and how back in her day Mountain Bikes had Cable disc brakes, not this new Hydraulic style, or when suspension was 4″ not 6″ etc etc etc.

Cheers

Friends of the Dufferin County Forest Meeting

March 23rd, 2019 by in Everything

The County held it’s first FDCF meeting on Thursday night. What a great turn out! Our County Forest Manager estimated there were about 40 people in total that attended. It was a great “meet and greet” and the County supplied refreshments and snacks (and cool vests as well as lots of other goodies!). There was lots of good discussion and positivity during the evening. It was a great experience having all user groups gather together to show support for each other, the County, the Recreation Policy and most importantly, to display our love and appreciation for the Forest. There were members from several social cycling groups and from several equestrian groups represented. I’m sure that moving forward all these groups can provide support for each other when the need arises. Thanks to everyone that came out and to all others that have signed up but couldn’t make the evening and most importantly, to the County for allowing us the privilege of enjoying the County Forests.

“Many hands make light work”.

Trail Update

March 21st, 2019 by in Everything

Trails are now snow, ice, dirt, slush and everything in between. At this point you can’t really hurt anything and hopefully the Fat Bike season is almost over. So feel free to ride even if they are mushy.

Now we will need to pay attention to mud and soft dirt trails. Please follow common sense and don’t leave ruts in the dirt. They stay with us for a long time.

As the trails open up, if you notice anything that requires attention please contact us through the “contact” tab and let us know. Thanks!

Wednesday Ride

March 19th, 2019 by in Everything

Plus 10 tomorrow. Not sure how riding will be, likely pretty soft and/or ice. I may just go for a hike (my legs could use the break!), maybe walk and scout out new trail (Ralph’s Trail and Max Connector). See how the day goes…still 6pm start for what ever you choose to give a go.

Planning a ride for 2pm on Sunday. Below zero for the weekend so we will find something to ride for sure!

Friends of DCF Waiver

March 13th, 2019 by in Everything

It’s come up a couple of times now so I’d thought I’d post up a clarification…If you have signed up with the County to be a FDCF and completed the original application form you would of hopefully received an e-mail several weeks later about signing an additional waiver. Some folks have thought that they already did that with the application but this is required as well as a supplement to the original paperwork. I’ll include an attachment here. Just double check that you have competed it and sent it in. The first meeting is next Thursday & spring is coming! Hope to see you at the meeting.

Trail Conditions/Weds Ride

March 13th, 2019 by in Everything

Chris and I got out for a ride Monday night and had one of our best winter rides. Trails where hard packed and not very icy. Only bad thing was someone hiked the stick out and back while it was warm and left deep footprints the entire way. We actually diverted off and took a different way home. Too bad…

Tonight (Weds)…not sure what will happen it will completely depend on conditions. Worse case the snowmobile trail is packed solid but it may be a bit icy which is only an issue if you are “studless”. We’ll see.

I shouldn’t have to say it but as always with the temps warming up let’s not rut up the trails. There still is some below zero temps in the forecast so we are not done Fat Biking yet. See you!
