    Unfortunately, the tornado heavily hit the Gatineau Park trails that the NCC intended to officially open up to mountain biking this year. I'm hoping that they will be cleared in time for fatbike season, but I expect the NCC will delay the opening of those trails to regular mountain biking until next year.

    I believe some western greenbelt trails near Arlington Woods were also hard hit.

    As far as I know, most other trails in the Ottawa/Gatineau area are ok, aside from some downed trees.

    I haven't heard from anyone in the mountain bike community that was directly impacted, aside from power outages. There were a few "close call" stories, including my own: we heeded the tornado warning and delayed driving to a friends for super that evening. If we hadn't, we might have been in the path of the twister that barrelled down St. Joseph in Gatineau.
    Mountain bikers are generally a rational bunch...until someone moves a rock on our favorite trail and we lose our minds - LMN
