    Northumberland Humbler July 5th

    Northumberland Humbler Northumberland Forest


    Dan's race in Northumberland would be almost half way between Toronto and Kingston. Which would make it the event where those from Eastern Ontario face off between these of Southern Ontario. And a first chance for those wanting to race at the finale in Kingston to see who from Eastern Ontario they may be up against at the end of August.

    Got my BB changed to the new Chris King one, adapter arrived this morning from California (gotta love UPS sometimes!) looking forward to it!! woohoo!

    Also trying out a new Ivy Block product (Ivy Block itself seems to be discontinued) new product is by Core-Tex (Leader in Outdoor Protection | Professional Skin Protection for Harsh Conditions | The Best Sunscreen SunX 30 | Coretex Products, Inc.) Ivy X, applied as a pre-treatment barrier, to be washed off after.

    The catch is finding it, I think it may be found in more industrial supply/safety places, I happened across some samples from a friend, not quite sure where they got them from.

    It is not an OCup course. There is no Commissaire measuring sock lengths and searching for hidden motors.

    Nope you won't have fun.

    Keep in mind that Northumberland Forest is sandy and deciding to Chamois Up on site will increase the odds of issues.

    Velominati ? Guest Article: Saddle Sore Galore or Taint Misbehavin?

    Also poison Ivy around so again same problem.

    Both are trivial issues that are easily solved with the right equipment choices.

    Nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    Is it common practice for you to drag your shorts along the ground before putting them on?

    i am here today to confirm the authenticity of the above statement.

    my first time at Northumberland trail system - and it is AWESOME. Fast, flowy, exciting but keeping you honest all the time... Great mix of ups and downs and only few double track connectors - great for passing and hydrating... those of you who have not ridden this area, and can make it happen - do not hesitate. it was worth the trip from Toronto.

    Dan put on a great event, again. everything ran smoothly and food/refreshments were excellent.

    but as always - nothing beats the great MTB crowd that gathers at these events. it was great to see all the familiar faces and exchange usual pleasantries.

    Wanted to stay to cheer Lenka in but had to leave early as my ride needed to get back for some concert tonight.

    And the logging shrapnel section brought back memories.

    RE: Northumberland Humbler July 5th

    What osokolo said. I couldn't do the race but happened to be driving by on Sunday so i thought I'd check out the NH forest for the forest. It was indeed fast with excellent flow, especially since most of the race signs were still up. It was the most fun trail I've ridden this summer so far.

    Exactly....to the letter what Oggie said! (Besides, I have trouble coming up with my own stuff...). Dan, well done!!
