    Long Sock Classic

    It's this Saturday. It's 60k of sweet singletrack in Ganaraska Forest. The first place prize for each category is a giant home-baked cookie. What else could anyone want?

    Who is in?
    Strava made me do it....

    Unfortunately I will not be recovered from the 8 hour race. At 52 I need a couple of weeks to recover from such a brutal race.
    My rides:
    Lynskey Ti Pro29 SS
    RM Suzi Q 90 RSL
    KHS Team 29
    S-Works Roubaix
    KHS CX 550 cyclocross

    not recovered? Ride with friends, BBQ, awesome socks (just arrived) who needs to recover? Ok, I may be completely biased.

    Just thought I would let you guys know that due to babysitting-availability-schedules, the course is 99% marked, the leaf blowing is done, the downed trees have been removed be chain saw fairies, as I am not allowed to use a chain saw there, and the distance markers should be up tomorrow.

    Sorry... having seen the finest of English electrical work. I prefer to travel in vehicles that come in diesel, of Germanic manufacture, and if possible mounting points for medium caliber automatic weapons.

    I'm in for the full distance. Looking forward to I haven't rode Ganaraska in a few years. I'm really glad the extended cold spring has kept the PI at bay.

    And want to ride, you will have no problem with the full distance.

    I'm in. Last minute decision after the 8 hour as I want to get a bit more racing before heading to the Mohican 100K in a few weeks.

    First time riding in Ganaraska, so that's exciting. Will probably be on my new bike too!

    Thanks, but I think I'll keep my 60k effort for the Pauls Dirty Enduro later this season.
    Will be nice to drop the hammer again, can't wait!!!
    First race as a 40 years old...
    But it's still early to make the final decision about the distance.

    Second that.

    Plus the conditions will be better.

    Oh...and to avoid having a meeting with that evil minded Murphy. Bring spare brake pads and such as well.

    Craig and I are in as well! We are making our debut in the Ganny, neither of us have ever ridden there before. Looks like we'll be seeing a lot of friends! Looking forward to it! It will be a great tune up for the Mohican and awesome start to the long weekend!

    That would be an option too, a really good one, but I'm dancing on a fine line at home already so I don't want to push my luck too far…

    What's Gana like terrain wise?

    I was told its super sandy and similar to Mansfield on the single track (small punchy climbs with lots of flow?)

    Throw some Poison Ivy into the mix.

    We have rented a cottage about 20 minutes from there this summer. Is it always advisable to ride with long socks in there? I plan on spending some substantial time in there this summer.

    It's a good idea to break out the long socks in the Ganny. It's prolly not bad now because of the cold spring we have had but as the weather gets warmer and the foliage grows, the long socks are a good call. Also, wash off the shoes and the sidewalls of your tires when you come out, in case they pick up some PI.

    Doubt there will be much undergrowth happening yet. Trails all around are still clear of things like nettle and poison ivy.

    Get out and race now it will be worse in 3 weeks I predict.

    The Ivy juice is on the whole plant including stem. You can get it in the winter. I got cocky last weekend and wore short socks and picked up a few ivy dots on my legs. Yes, I was riding in the Ganny.

    We ride there all the time. Are you cottaging on Rice Lake? See new Ganaraska FB page if interested.

    Thanks. Good to know. If anyone can point me to a decent set of maps, it would be much appreciated.

    Paul's Dirty Enduro is marked 15, 30 and 60 km. from the forest centre. There is really no maps that show you are "here". Any maps that do exist are now out of date because if new trails and 12 km of new single track this year. There are also the motorcycle trails that are fun to ride as well.

    A GPS and a compass may not hurt.

    This may help map

    quick note on the poison ivy. It is always there. I have been out this week though with long socks and working for a while and nothing happening (and I am now super sensitive) the only spot is from getting on work gloves and then touching my stomach...
    for the race there will be sunlight so wash away.
    It is there, but WAY better than normal.

    and for maps, there are also a bunch of strava segments going on if that helps. The printed maps are ok, but getting out of date as Len is building...
    hope that helps someone!

    Bring up your fatbike as they really flow nicely on the motorcycle trails.

    Hydration packs and Bodins that carry water mixed with whatever powder they have found that their stomach can handle under stress.

    Then copious quantities of Belgian Ale post race.*

    I'm curious to hear how it went today also, I was hoping to go race but just couldn't manage to line up the sun, moons and work... but do have the day free tomorrow so think I may go and check out some of the course.

    Great day on the bike, but let's just say that I was not quite as recovered from 11 rigid, gearless laps at last weekend's epic 8 as I thought....
    Strava made me do it....

    Course was fast and fun. The double track was a bit too fast for my gearing but the singletrack sections were awesome. It was nice to be back at the Ganny.

    My legs were cramping up a bit at the end of the first lap and I was getting a bit cold so I called it a day thinking if I went out for the second lap I'd start suffering and the fun factor would plummet. The burger and the beer at the end of the ride were delicious.

    Probably a good choice. First lap was super fun for me, second lap was a cramp-fest. Poor Unglued had to hear me curse like a sailor when I cramped up. Thanks for the encouragement Unglued!!

    Was my first time at the Ganny and first time doing one of Dan's races. Overall it was a super fun time. Loved the trails there and thought Dan put together a really good, tough, but fair course with a great mix of everything.

    My race went well and hit my goal of keeping it steady, but come the last 5 km, I was cooked. Rode my new 27.5 hardtail and give it a big thumbs up.

    Yes, Dan put on a flawless race as far as I'm concerned. Very smoothly run and fun course.

    Sounds like you guys had a great race/ride! the weather was perfect for it! I'm pretty stoked for my ride tomorrow.

    Unsure if we will do the Paul's Dirty Enduro 100k course (if it is still marked) or the Long Sock 100k, there is 3 of us going. For the Long Sock if you guys don't mind me asking, was it 2 loops? trying to figure if we need to schlep enough water with us for 100k.

    The Long Sock course was two 32km laps.
    Also about 15k in it comes pretty close to the GFC.

    Great day on the bike!!!
    Trails were perfect, nice and tacky almost no sand whatsoever. I made the right decision to do the half only, and left everything on the course.
    Weather was on the chilly side a bit, but we didn't have to deal with rain ( or snow ) at least.
    Right now I'm drinking my podium beer: Thornbury Apple Cider..

    2 laps. 66 kms. It was another glorious day of racing/riding/trash talking/cramping/swearing etc. Not necessarily in that order either.

    Great job by Dan and his team and super fun people on two wheels. Ganaraska is amazing. Nothing short of amazing.

    Don't think the first 40k of the 100k Loop is marked, Be aware that section is used by dirt bikers. And if it is wet enough that section turns to a basically a grinding paste which will eat brakes, drive trains, bearings, and such. Keep in mind that the water table is still high even if you can't see it.

    Super fun race - Dan killed it yet again!

    First time at Ganny, loved it! Reminded me of Mansfield with more climbing, conditions were awesome!

    First lap was pretty good, slammed two gels and some shot blocks on the second lap and survived with a little pain - was surprised how much they helped!

    Was surprised to get on the podium of the 65k - pulled a good lead on the second lap then a guy on a nice s-works dually got some second wind and started hunting me down on the last 4k, held him off by 45-50 sec or so but it was like a game of cat and mouse for that last bit.

    Slamming a podium cider right now - best podium award ever!

    Thanks Enduramil - one of the guys has to bail a bit early I think, so will do a mix of both courses I think.

    Sounds like everyone had a blast yesterday though, too bad I missed it.

    I stopped and changed them after the first lap, just to be safe, hence why you beat me.

    Had a great time yesterday even though I suffered pretty good by the end with my lack of fitness. Always a great event that Dan outs on.

    Great ride! I had such a hard time deciding what to wear! The Sun kept coming and going.

    This was my first of Dan's events too, first MTB race ever actually and it was fantastic. I did the full marathon and hurt the whole way.

    You were looking on the wrong side of the GC plus Unglued was still hurting.

    You made me carry extra pads for nothing.

    With the snivelling one would think those pads where 5 pounds a set.

    All is good. I have dispatched a travel pack of tissues for Oggie by FedEx which will help him to gently wipe away any snivel residuals.
