Fat / Skinny Tire Trail Report

January 6th, 2014 by in Everything

Date: Sunday January 5th, 2013
Location: Dufferin Forest

Bikers: Tyler, Johnny, Chris
Hikers: Emily, Illona
Runners: Karen, Max

Even with the weather, we were able to get out and enjoy the nice day, or sun, snow etc, with a ride, hike and run.  The snowmobile trail wasn’t groomed, and there were a few sleds out packing it down a little.

The below picture sums up the ride though…..

It was a tough trudge through the snow, and to be honest Skinny tires may have been the better bet for the ride…. As the tires dug through the snow instead of the fat tires which were floating on the snow.

Our ride distance wasn’t great, but the leg burn was more than there…. we ended up finishing with 7.5 km, with a ride time of an hour…. Like I said, it was a slow chug… 
We had a special guest appearance from Yoda…..

Which then turned into a more formal gathering with a bow tie…. 
We did have a lot of fun throughout the ride though!! Once we hit the 20th side road we were able to skid along and have some fun…. 

Ride Rating: 2.75 out of 5 – just an above average ride…
This rating is across the board…. The hike was fun, but tough, and the run was fun, but tough…. 
So all in all it was a great workout day for everyone!

The hikers had a good hike, set out with the intention of being passed by the runners and/or bikers then would turn around and head back to parking lot. Everyone went on different trails in the end and the hikers got a call from the bikers ( in the parking lot, consuming an apres) wondering where they are…about 3 Km from the parking lot… All said and done the hikers did 7.6 Km!!
