A fellow fat biker and I decided since we work close to University Lake we might as well make our own single tracks going through the woods so we could have more technical trails to ride that are close enough to ride during lunch or after work. So far we have put in a couple miles worth, of course they get snowed on often so maintaining them takes a lot of work with just two people on snow shoes. Anyhow, here is a sneak peak at a little bit of our trails. When I find time to do some video editing I'll post up a better video.
Nice guys!... I work real close to that area as well. I'll have to check out your work..
Thanks, They need some work. We haven't gotten out as much since last weeks dump. We started walking them again but they weren't very rideable yet. I'll see if I can post a garmin connect link to give a better idea of where they are located. Other people have started walking them or skiing them once in awhile too which is cool. They are pretty random trails though so don't expect them to end up in a logical place! But they are all pretty short and won't take you but a few minutes out of your way! They are slow and technical and we are having fun just seeing who can touch down the least or get through the fastest. Watch for moose, there are a few that I have seen out there every single day I've ridden there.
Oh and feel free to bring your snowshoes and fix any spots you see fit!
Trails are solid! we rode them today, they are technical and narrow. Here's a better back that includes our two new sections we put in this week. They will be rideable till the next big snow! On a bad note, I ripped off my derailer today, not sure what it snagged on either.
trails were ridden again recently after the light dusting of snow. Good to see someone is finding and riding them. I started punching in a new section with snowshoes today. Should be done by the end of the week. Riding the same old ones again today after work to keep everything packed in!
Good stuff, I snuck out there around noon. I approve.
Bonus was seeing a little owl (Boreal owl I'd guess) hanging out in one of the trees while I was exploring.
Glad you enjoyed. I saw your tracks after work when I went to ride. Thanks for starting to ride in some of that light dusting of snow.
I snowshoed in a new section today and it links with several of the other trails. See if you can find it! It's packed down and ready for riding! Probably going to add in several others next week or make a longer one.
Extended out one of my favorite trails with the help and suggestion of another guy I bumped into out there while snowshoeing, he was out there helping to pack stuff down as well! Awesome!
This trail now is almost a mile of continuous single track- it parallels/by-passes the main powerline trail along University Lake.
So if you want to take out some of your boring straight line ride as you are going by, hop on this trail and have some fun!
