    Humber River Autumn/Winter Riding

    Days are getting shorter. By the time we get home from work and get geared up, it's dark.
    This evening's ride conditions were superb. And every ride is such a cool adventure

    Look who we spotted eating fallen apples on the trail! Didn't want to get too close but he allowed a few pics and then returned to the mighty Humber River.

    Glad we took that window of opportunity and rode last evening... today is a soaker. It's a trick not a treat

    Saturday could be promising and this Sunday might be better

    the trca cleaned all the metal junk in the pool... hmmmm wonder if we can add it as a trail feature?

    and interesting factoid of the area was that the "forest rangers" where filmed in the surrounding area along the humber river.

    We rode the local Humber River trail, that we've done so many times before (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter). Every ride on these familiar trails is always different and amazing. Today, the air was crisp (4C); the trails were leaf covered, hard and dry.

    <a href="http://photobucket.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1278.photobucket.com/albums/y511/mudbunny1/DSC01821_zps0475b5fe.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo DSC01821_zps0475b5fe.jpg"/></a>

    There were several trees down, thereby changing the trail and creating new possibilities. We played on one of those fallen trees.

    Think I'm going to head out there this week and try out those trails for a change of pace. How slick does it get in this wet fall weather we've been having?

    I've been riding Durham forest Glen Major area a few times a week as the drainage is excellent and soil always firm.
    Made the mistake of hitting up the Don on Wed thinking it might be ok. Took 2.5hr to do a 40min loop and a solid half hr of pressure washing to get that nasty clay off LOL. Going to write that place off till spring.

    I can;t believe it's still autumn because it sure felt like winter again today. More snow (about 4cm) fell over night. Temp during our 2.5 hour ride was -6c and wind chill -12c

    Looks like cotton

    Brrr, Judy, you and Chris were considerably more hearty than I today. I was out late last night and couldn't get up the gumption to go ride. Big shock compared to last week's ride in short sleeves.

    Hi Drew, it was cold especially the windchill... but I chose my layers well. I was warm and comfortable, except for my face on the ride back on the road.

    we are lucky to live in an area with a lot of trail options.I prefer riding outside my front door anytime, so it is not so bad. also with fat bikes nowadays it adds a new dimension to the season (henceforth my latest build).

    A nice afternoon ride today. Saw lots of animal tracks and the Humber is forming a base layer of ice.

    We celebrated the 1st December. A bit more milder than yesterday, but foggy. We didn't lose any ice on the river

    Today in Music History:

    THE DEATH OF PUNK IN TORONTO
    It was billed as “the last punk rock concert in Toronto.” During this week in 1978, the Last Pogo was held at the Horseshoe Tavern on Queen Street West. On the bill were some of the best bands from the punk scene that had been pogoing and spitting and bleeding their way through the city’s downtown music venues over the previous few years: The Viletones, Teenage Head, The Scenics, The Ugly and more.

    When a riot broke out and the cops shut the whole thing down, the show became something of a Toronto legend – a quarter of a century later, it’s still a famous story – Colin Brunton filmmaker

    Nice ride along the Humber River today. -6c and windchill -12c. The ground was frozen solid and the leaves crackled under our tires. 2 more weeks before the first day of winter!

    We rode for 2 chilly hours... there were a few snow flakes

    ^ Nice! Finally frozen in the GTA. It's been freeze/thaw mud for almost 2 weeks.
    I got out today also. Durham/ Walker woods was fast and frozen solid. Next best thing to dry summer days.

    Glad you had a good ride as well, chuck!
    Trails were fast and the wind chill wasn't as noticeable in the forest (and I wore the right layers )

    yup, as long as we don't lose the ice in a warm spell. but even if it warms up everything in the forest and pathways will ice over so it's a win win no matter what the weather does. flagged the road bypass trail also this weekend, will be a sweet hand cut trail project for the Nashville track. though still digging the hawthorn out of the fingers...

    Was thinking about you guys today.
    Hiked from Twyn rivers rd to the lake on the Rouge river. Was almost a 20k hike round trip. Besides a few coyote and deer tracks I was the only prints.
    Only open water was near 2 sets of falls and tiny so it's a solid trek all the way. Might try the bike on it before the warm spell hits near the end of the week. Just not sure about the ice without studs. It's flat enough to skate.

    Nice pics Chuck!

    Studs are better on ice ... but give it a shot. They do help with control and cornering
    We still need a few more days of deep freeze.
