    Yep...its a leash for my dog when I'm on the road or elsewhere that I need to keep him close by.
    Also great for getting a tow!

    BCD, any idea when the Barrens should be OK to ride? How much warm weather do the earthen sections require before it's rideable & not just rolling thru mud?

    The Barrens is rideable now Kris, we were hiking there last weekend. Would have biked it but my son is visiting from Victoria and he doesn't ride!
    These are from late March last year, similar to what it's like ATM with a bit more snow still in places ( last year was low snow winter)...

    ...and late April might be better, give it a week or two!
