    I live at Whitney and Mericourt. Check out our yahoo club (harp_mtb -Hamilton Area Ride Post).

    http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/harp_mtb/

    We'll be using this club come the good weather to annouce rides or arrange spontaneous outings on sunny afternoons, especially Fridays.

    I am looking to starting a regular Wed. ride with a group of laid back people. I know that Freewheel does there Wed. rides, but I miss the laid back ambience of the old "Spin Cycle" rides.

    Post up on harp_mtb or drop me an email if you want to ride

    Teebor, I kinda like that little bit of single track across Lawrence Rd. from you up to the Kenilworth access. I think we should have stuff like that right across the city along the escarpment. I was going to bring up the subject at the next Hamilton Cycling Committee meeting on March 30, but a grudge match hockey game has come up that I can't miss, so I can't make it to the meeting. I'll send them an email and see what happens.

    it was actually with the McMaster Cycle co-op. We went down the rail trail, through dundas valley, came out in ancaster, and then down part of the Radial-Trail, and back towards McMaster through the rail yard. i dont remember the exact details of the route we took through dundas valley to ancaster though.

    My gf has been riding with them all last summer. I sent her to freewheels' womens' learn to mountain bike clinic-one in may(04) i believe (as girls hate learning from guys - we ride different - do yourself a favor and send her - best $50 i ever spent) The ride is challenging but not difficult - its always in the dundas valley - its all about having fun. I ride with a group of roadies outta westdale on wednesdays. Plus i know how freewheel frowns on hardtails! lol

    South mountain here. I started riding last year, and would like to step it up a bit this year. I'm also thinking about a road bike.

    In Waterdown - Moved here from Dundas

    Ride the Waterdown trails and Kelso a lot. Used to ride the Valley and the MAC campus but I haven't been in the valley for a while and the MAC 5-0 has been asking bikers who are doing anything interesting like stairs or drops to take a hike. Also, does VInce really ride a 29" hardtail on group rides?
    The more you give'r the more fun you have!

    Actually a 29" HT would be a perfect bike for the valley trails...which is what they do on their mid-week group rides...

    Nice to meet you. I'm up in Freelton. I ride Waterdown most of the time because it's convenient and its awsome. I like to get out to Kelso on weekends. I bought a seasons pass at Blue for this summer so I'll be up there on weekends hopefully. ...can't tell what type of riding you're into but my rig weighs about 45 lbs so if your into xc I guess I'll be eating your dust.

    My two cents....

    I'm at Kenilworth and Main in East Hamilton. I really miss the Red Hill Creek trails. Not terribly challenging, but good for a quick after work ride.

    As far as womens ride groups, I think there is a group at Kelso on Wednesday's. Atleast last year there was.
