    The Torrance Barrens...sweet!! [o]

    I love this place....and not just because it's all rock, and therefore instantly ride-ready as soon as the snow melts! The Barrens has ambiance...and if you believe in animism, it has soul...

    Nice photos. Where is this? And what's the yellow thing going from your seat to your rear axle?

    The tow leash is interesting. Was the dog off leash on this ride?

    Yes, he is always off leash on the trails. I have several trail heads within riding distance of home and I use this to ride on the roads to get there. Or sometimes we just want to ride around town and its great for that! We drove to The Barrens but I just leave it on the bike although it only takes a few seconds to remove. Never know when it could be good to have, and adding a pound or so to a 38 lb Pugs....Meh, never would know it is even there!

    Great pictures. Definitely looks like fatbike country. We've got a lot of barrens here in NL and the fatty floats and flows fine in those conditions.

    Hey thanks! Heads up that Torrance Barrens is best in Apr > mid Jun, then from mid Aug until the snow flies. In the peak summer months the deer flies are horrendous, they love that open terrain especially when its hot and dry!!! I stay away and prefer forest trails with a tree canopy ( Buckwallow for example) at that time...just sayin'
