TVG will head out at 11:00 am Saturday morning for a ride. It will be just above zero when we finish so we should be good.
Let’s all keep a close eye on the warm temps and trail conditions over the next few days. The trails are in great shape at the moment. Once it starts getting above 2 degrees or so the snow will start to soften up and any rutting up will become frozen in overnight. So for the next few days plan your ride around the hourly forecast. Saturday won’t be too hard to manage, Sunday with a high of 8 is definitely trail trashing temperatures. If you are finishing up and you think things are getting too soft feel free to put the cone up to discourage others. Thanks from the groomer crew!Johnny in Everything
Wednesday ride is a go from DCF parking lot at 6pm.
One of the groomer crew got out today and got his “marathon badge” (it’s when you groom the entire 18km network (22.2km by the time you get there and back) in one go. Around 3 hours of work). Word is the trails are completely freshened up and will the temps dropping they should be slot track of Fat Bike trail goodness tomorrow. Yee-Haw… lets ride!Johnny in Everything
Trails were the best they have ever been today. I know I’ve said that I’ve had my best ride ever before (twice actually) but today took the cake. I met a lot of great folks out today as well. The trails where the fastest I’ve ever been on for a winter ride. An awesome day!!!
We have some overnight snow (3-5cms?) followed by rain and a plus temp day Tuesday. Please avoid the trails tomorrow and one of our groomer crew is going to try and regroom everything after the rain stops to pack it all in. Then back to sub zero temps Tuesday night. If everyone refrains from riding tomorrow and lets it set up overnight the trails will be awesome again on Weds.
Yeh Fat Biking!!Johnny in Everything
Fresh snow on Thursday and the groomer crew got right on it and double teamed to get everything groomed for the weekend. The 18 km’s of trails should be amazing!
Mansfield Outdoor Centre has groomed today adding in another 34km’s of Fat Bike goodness.
TVG will be riding from MOC this weekend, Sunday 2pm from the Main Lodge. Reminder $15 incl. tax for a whole day pass if you want to come earlier. We will celebrate the ride afterwards. Anyone can feel free to come out and help support MOC’s Fat Biking.
See you out there!

Hi Wednesday gang. As the trail network is not yet fully groomed we are going to start the Weds ride from the Mansfield Outdoor Centre at 6pm. Park by the Main Lodge (where the Epic 8 starts from). From there we will be able to get a decent ride in. And we get to start by climbing that super fun hill!!!
Also our weekend ride will be from the MOC on Sunday. Time TBA. They will have all their trails groomed for Fat Biking by then and hopefully DCF trails are all up to speed. I have groomed the MOC single track as well but it will still need another pass to be good to go. Hopefully by the weekend.
The whole groomer crew was hard at work today!
You can now check the status of the MOC trails on their website as they are now open for FBing most weekends.
