    Albion still open?
    How are the conditions, if anyone knows (and assuming it is still open, of course). The weekends looks good for a mountain bike ride. :thumbsup:

    Thanks.

    Hey Tom, I rode there last Friday and conditions were pretty good. The frost was starting to get into the ground in spots, but overall, things were quite good. I rode the whole black loop with no real issues in terms of conditions. There was no one at the entrance, but that's pretty normal for a much of the season depending on what time you go. You should be good to go.

    Thanks mtbmeister! I will go there Saturday morning for a ride. I need to show some love to my mountain bikes. It has been all road for me. And indoor riding, of course. :)

    Don't forget to head into Palgrave as well. Caledon Cycling has been doing a lot of work in there lately. Reroutes and new trails. And perfect conditions :D

    I never rode Palgrave. Maybe it is time! Are the trails marked?

    Definitely worth the extra couple minutes up the road. Not sure about the marking though but I've never been lost there. :thumbsup:

    Rode Palgrave this afternoon. Conditions are great and So are the reroutes and additions. Well done to those that contributed to that. The trails aren't marked really, but with what they did, it's easier to follow a loop. Problem is that if you haven't been there, you could miss a couple entrances. Give yourself some time. It's too bad there's not more there as its easily covered in less than an hour.

    Albion, and anywhere else for that matter, "never close".

    Went to Albion today, the road to the chalet is closed, but otherwise still no problems getting on the trails.

    Was about an inch of snow on the trails today. First time riding single track with snow. Fun but slow and slippery. I can see this being great training for 'staying light on your bike'.

    Lots of trees down today, some pretty large ones too.
