    Nice evening for a ride on rest day.

    Mosquitoes still bad on the ridge but less buggy closer to the river. Deet required
    Snapped a few pics on the way back

    Roadkill... what road kill?

    Fun ride in Dufferin Forest on Sunday! We bumped into other local riders, equestrians and mushroom pickers... all were friendly and happy sharing the trails.

    Singlesprocket and I did a long exploratory ride. We found some old overgrown trails and had a blast

    I love the vivaciousness of the forest and trails... fall riding makes me smile

    I thought this mushroom I saw on the weekend was scary but that one is from an alien planet.

    Today we explored "the other side of Bolton". After a good morning run and kettlebell workout, we rode to north hill. Cool and sunny; trails were tacky in the sunshine and hard and dry in the shade.

    Crossing one of many bridges

    Rode the Humber River North trails. Mild weather.

    Today's Winter Solstice ride was local. Temps around 0c. Trails are fun and challenging. We don't get as much the foot traffic as in the west end of Humber trails.

    We met and chatted with a local photographer out with his puppy in the Nashville tract and taking pics of the beautiful scenery and wildlife

    Tested my winter ride set up: wider rims and studded tires for grip on the icy

    Today, after a brutal workout, we had another fun filled ride in the Nashville tract

    Ground is frozen, so traction was good
    Local Trail Rides-10897107_616337501828595_412034635059541209_n-1-.jpg

    Sky was grey and there were some snow flakes

    Nice to see you guys out enjoying the "off" season! Nice pics too. Obviously more snow is needed and hopefully will be here soon, but how is SS liking the fatty so far?

    nooo, don't need snow. not enough packing down in the tract. actually the fatty works pretty good in the conditions now. it's a good bush whacking bike. got lots of traction to ride over pretty stupid stuff. i did have to bump up the tire pressure a bit to stop getting pinch flats and for the road sections riding from the house. will probably get a suspension fork for the bike, jumping/drops (even small hits) is a bit jarring.

    time to stud up because it is icing up. finally we are getting some decent low temps -14c. the river is icing nicely, it shouldn't to long. the ox-bow's are thick enough though.

    How long did the stud install take? Been thinking of studding a set of Floaters for my fat bike.

    Unique, exciting ride today. We rode the Lake Ontario shore ice. Temp was -7c but windchill was -22c. Rode for 2 bone chilling hours but it was worth the thrill. Riding was challenging and diverse. Some soft sand, frozen smooth rocks, off camber chunky and glassy ice! Mix in steep grassy hills at the Waterworks and that makes ice biking incredible... thank you studded tires

    Another icebike ride today on the Humber River West in Clairville. Conditions were aces. Temp was mild and ice surface was very different in comparison to yesterday's ride on Humber north tributary. Wetter and slicker but no open spots.

    River passed the inspection. The verdict was solid

    be safe out there. in some areas it's unsafe to even walk because on the ice. studs are a must even when walking/bush whacking

    Going on two weeks without a ride either to much snow or to much ice or to sloppy to ride without trail damage. No happy medium here in KW. Come on spring!!!

    We didn't have to ride much distance to get a good workout. Our ride last Sunday in Clairville was about 16km.... however it was technical in areas

    When you're out ice biking, do you fall over much? I've never done it. I don't have studded tires. Just curious...

    If there is a bit of snow on top of the ice, you will have a bit more traction with regular tires.

    With glare ice, it's a crap shoot. Wear pads if possible because you will go down

    whew...

    a little bit of advice about a hand saw that can fit in your pack...

    Itís never to late to do trail maintenance as they sayÖ A fat bike just motivates me to do it in the winter. Well thatís not exactly true, I would do it on any bike. I like the winter to lay out alignments because you can really see the topography of the area where you have to work. The lack of foliage and the snow knocking down the weeds gives you a perspective you just donít have the warmer months. You can also see drainage problem areas with the formation of ice on the grounds surface. In really bad areas it looks like a mini glacier. Other then my flagging tape I picked up a basic tool to carry in my pack. Itís the Silky Gomboy folding saw. A slim light weight piece of kit that fits in the pack without taking up to much room. I tested the saw on a big maple blocking the trailn that was knocked down during the last icestorm. Most of the branches I had to cut through ranged from 2″ to 10″ in diameter. Cutting slightly green maple hardwood that is frozen can be a bit of a chore even with a chainsaw. The Gomboy went through it fairly well for a handsaw. It took a bit of practice to find the right amount of pressure to apply. Since the Gomboy blade is very thin you have to be careful not to bend it during your draws and pulls. It is also important to be aware of the limbs tension and compression as this will bind the saw. Cut accordingly, though I will be carrying some small plastic wedges that I have made to prevent this. Lastly always be aware of what you are cutting. Logs can shift and crush you, branches can drop and impale you. I must say that the Gomboy is a handy price of kit to have in your pack if you do any trail work.

    Awesome weekend riding. Saturday in Clairville and Sunday in Bolton


    The Humber West was combination of glare ice, thin crunchy snow, and drifting snow. This made riding slow.

    I guess I'm getting old! I fell the other day hiking the Bruce Trail...tried to step around the ice that was showing, only to be caught unaware that the fresh snow I stepped onto was a sheet of ice underneath, and I went down on my arm/shoulder. I was able to ride the day after, but it was a wee bit painful.

    Conditions around the banana belt were perfect this weekend BCD. Rode two different trail systems and both were perfect. Nice and fast and with decent temps. No jacket required for yesterdays ride.

    So much snow melted since last ride and the ground is still frozen so trails were still firm.

    Our highlights: 1) Spotting a large coyote running through the woods but couldn't snap a pic in time. 2) Crowsnest. 3) Finding a huge ice pond to play on! 4) Another fun filled day riding

    Trails were dry.
    Local Trail Rides-dsc01815_zps1tnaeob1.jpg

    Spotted the coyote running through this forested area after this pic was taken. It was quite large and it's silhouette resembled like a german sheppard ...so we suspect it might be a coywolf

    A walk with David Miller up the Humber River Valley | Toronto Star

    A nice scenic route to ride when the trails are too spongy and wet.

    Fun ride and get together in the Don. Trails were dry and hard. In our group 20 riders (12 HT! and 8 FS bikes) and one dog met up. Trails were dry and hard

    Thank you Mikhs! I was pleasantly surprised ...thrilled actually at how good The Mayor was on the Rocks!!! I was expecting something akin to my old Pugs, with lots of self-steer on the off-camber riding. Nope...Mayor easily went exactly where I pointed it, just like any mountain bike! The riding position, stem length, and bar width are spot on for me. I attribute the self-steer on the Pugs to the weight of the Large Marge rims. The 5" Bud & Lou tires soak up a lot of harshness of the rock riding in comparison to the 4" tires that were on the Pugs, all the while being inflated firmer and therefore rolling just as well or better. The bike is also 5 lb lighter than the Pugs was. Too bad I have added 5 lb to my own weight in recent years lol! Traction of course is 100% and boggy wet water holes...pffft!!

    Too wet for blue today so for a change of pace singlesprocket and I rode the Inglewood-Tottenham (60km round trip) rail trail on our ht's. The last time we did this was 2011. Beautiful scenery and the trail had a facelift!

    My wife and I were in Collingwood celebrating our anniversary this weekend. We were hoping to try 3 Stage for the first time, but it was hopelessly wet, so we aborted and tried Kolapore. Kolapore was crawling with hunters, so on to plan C. On our way back home we stopped off and went for a spin in Dufferin Forest. Conditions were great, but the leaves caused me to lose the trail on a few occasions. It was a very different ride than we were planning for at 3 Stage, but we still managed to break a chain, have fun and salvage the trip. Sometimes you just have to roll with it.

    Agreement Forest ride tonight. The doubletrack was swampy, but surprisingly most of the singletrack was rideable. Solo night rides are the best way to happen on local wildlife. In the past couple of weeks I have happened across deer, porcupine, rabbits, and a swarm of bats. Tonight I didn't see any critters, but heard an eerie high-pitched howling in the woods (guessing it might have been a coyote/wolf hybrid; certainly not a coyote or a dog).

    It was a glorious day for a local ride Still in recovery from +++ injuries so this tame ride was perfect. Trails were tacky, temps were fab

    Riding to the trails.... we encountered Tom. Why didn't the turkey cross the road?

    Hilton and the Agreement Forest are our home trails, we live only 20 mintes away. I ride them weekly. I love them, but understand that they are an acquired taste and not to everyone's liking. I do wish that we had some flowier trails close by to help ease my son into riding singletrack, the Hilton trails are a little too unforgiving of the inevitable crashes that happen when a 7 year old rides.

    Merry Christmas Cycleicious! Congrats on the new pack. I gave my wife an Osprey Raven for her birthday this year, and she loves hers. I am sure you will enjoy that for many years to come. They do fit really well. I'm looking for a Camelbak KUDU...for my birthday

    You guys have to come out to give the Agreement Forest a try sometime. It is some of the best technical riding south of Barrie/Collingwood. The winter riding in the AF is second to none.

    Conditions were pretty good, considering the time of year ... the usual muddy sections were little greasy but still ride-able. However, we were surprised that there wasn't more riders. We met 2 small mtb groups besides ourselves and exchanged greetings with several hiking/dog walking groups. We started our ride at 11 at the bottom and by 4 the cold front moved in and puddles were icing up just as we were getting back to the parking lot. It 's been over a year since we rode there last ... and forgot much fun it is.

    Night ride in the Agreement Forest yesterday. The trails were flowier than usual, with the packed snow filling the gaps between rocks. I cleaned some trails that I normally can't due to this, the technical difficulty of the trails was down a couple of notches. Traction was icy due to the extensive traffic, making the odd exposed rocks targets for some much-needed traction. As soon as I gathered some confidence and picked up speed one of my wheels would wash out and put me back in my place.

    Local Trail Rides-img_0675.jpg

    No takers on this skinny since it iced up, apparently.

    Local Trail Rides-img_0670.jpg

    Overall, a very fun ride, and I wound up riding far longer than originally planned. I only wrapped it up as the batteries for my lights reached critical.

    Saturday night ride along the Humber. Milder weather (0c) . Conditions were very different than last weekend. A bit of ice and snow on the trails. The river ice mostly gone. A beautiful night to ride, build a fire and look at the stars. On the ride back home we heard coyotes howling at the train!

    Sunday ride and trail work day

    We rode to and visited a different section of the Nashville tract . We were joined by another co-chair of the Nashville Tract Conservation Reserve to flag a multi use trail alignment for spring tail work by Kirby Road.

    We later rode to explore the North side of the Humber and check out the Oxbow to ride some ponds.

    That sounds awesome. I'm going to have to hit you up for a tour of that. Would love to join you and Blue. I'm taking it kind of easy. I took a nice tumble on ice on a night ride and just recovering from some serious contusions and twisted leg.

    Night ride this evening...I'm loving Saturday's ! We have done a night ride every caturday since Christmas.

    Every ride has been different. Tonight was mild and the trails in the Nashville tract was a mix of ground frozen and puddles. River was open water... opposite of last weekend
