    We are thinking about turkey point. Trails are good in any weather and there is a beach down the road from the trails. 40 km of well maintained single track .

    I probably won't be able to make it down to Turkey Point but I certainly will participate in a "Global Fatbike Ride" up here in the Barrie area. I know a fairly large group of people here in Barrie and the Bracebridge/Gravenhurst area with fatties. Black Canoe Dog you in?

    Just bought one myself.
    Drove to Ottawa and bought it at Tall Tree Cycles. No one here in the Hamilton area could come anywhere near their price.
    Its cool riding through a soft spot on the trail and realizing you are actually improving the trail. Packs down the hoof prints and other tire tracks nicely.

    Honestly I'm afraid of riding one and liking it too much... then forcing my entire family and friends lists to go on massive rides through the wilderness while camping and fishing for hundreds of kilometers if they ever want to spend time with me again if I did get one.


    There's a point where bike lust ends, and wanderlust begins, and a fat bike makes that transition in seconds of thinking about it.

    I started collecting parts last spring knowing I wanted to indulge. I have had 2 rides on it so far and lov'n it. It's a spoiler, ruined me for my fs mtb bike. I don't know of anyone else around here that has one so it will be a solo ride on Dec. 1.

    I've been there, done that. Friends and total strangers will want to take it for a spin at the trailhead, all sorts of people will stop, stare, and remark. And soon you won't be alone!!!

    I recall one chap who had never been on one and took mine for a spin at Buckwallow on a Sunday, sent me an email on the following Thursday to thank me and and tell me that he had just bought one!!

    Cool...that's great news! When I get my season pass for skiing I'm going to ask Gravenhurst Nordic ( aka Buckwallow ) if they will let me onto their ski trails too when conditions are right.

    I will be riding on Saturday.
    Just deciding between riding up in Sauble beach ,or if there is a more local group ride happening. Is Turkey point still a go?
    Homebase is Paris.
    Either way rolling on fatties!

    Planning to take Fatty to the beach from Port Maitland to Mowhawk Point. Should be a neat mix of sand, cobble, bedrock, zebra mussle shell dunes, and high banks. Hope the winds stay light. With the low water levels there is lots of beach to play on. I had a great moonlight ride on Long Beach last night.

    @big hustler we met last year at the hydrocut, I have the gt fatty. There are at least 4 people I know of here in brantford with fat bikes and three others I dont know. Turkey point is good if youre interested its kind of sandy , this is where we go to ride when its raining.
    We are up for anything, the beach ride sounds good. How long a ride is Port Maitland to Mowhawk Point Smittyway?

    This will be the first time I will do this beach ride. I've hiked sections of it before. Fatties were new for my wife and I this fall. On the map it looks like approx 9km from port to point, add in some play time on the limited trails in Pock Point Provincial Park and it should be ok. I really like Turkey Point but it is 1.5 hour drive. This ride is 10 min down the road. This summer my wife an I are planning an over nighter out the south side beach of Long Point on the fatties.

    Rentals...

    If anyone is in our area and would like to join the BRMC ride in Bracebridge but doesn't have a fatbike, know that Muskoka Outfitters in Bracebridge has 9 ZERO 7 rental, and Algonquin Outfitters in Huntsville has Salsa Mukluk rentals I think!
