    I'm from Windsor ON, the flattest land in Canada (atleast the praries have a slight roll to them). In fact the only hills in town are the two former city dumps that they turned into parks....

    Complain bitterly? Hey, I never said anything about that. I guess I can peg you at early 40's, or mid/late 30's with kid(s).

    yeah, theres so much development going on right now in newmarket. at least rogers reservoir and the scouts area past that hasnt been developed yet, its good for some riding, but theres not a lot of trails. but theres still always ravenshoe forest, and durham forest and stuff.

    ive found lots of good trails in hamilton though, not really technical single track or anything, but enough to satisfy me.

    Yeah, Ravenshoe is a pretty good place, though it is sort of hard to get to without a car, lol.

    There used to also be some decent trails out near Lake Wilcox next to the new Bayview Ave expansion/extention. I'm not even sure if those are still there though as I havn't been around that area in 2 years.

    Used to live in Hamilton up until 5 years ago, the best trails out that way are in Waterdown, it takes about 20-30 minutes to ride to Waterdown from downtown Hamilton. There are some decent trails up around Ancaster and Dundas too.

    Here in Toronto the best trails are in the Don Valley, if you have trouble finding them just hang around long enough and follow the other mountain bikers they will most likely lead you to them. Or just ask.

    This should be a very interesting thread you started, trekracer8000.
    Sorry didn't mean to put words in your mouth

    I don't usually comaplain outloud since no-one cares anyway but after some nice falls my wife gets a good dose of whining. And no I am only 29 but I am back in saddle after a 6 year break and a pair of screwed up knees.

    Ironicly riding is making them feel better in the long run, less popping and swelling on the off days... good thing I love to ride

    Where do you ride around there? I have to work in St. Marys every now and then but when I've taken my bike along the only place I've been able to find is Fanshawe Park in London and it's not terrific

    Any insight would be great. Thanks

    Yeah well I've been holdin' out waiting for a REAL forum - Lower Canada - haven't I? It's probably too subtle to actually happen so I guess this forum will have to do.

    I seem to be the only one from Quebec... Maybe it's because we have some great forums to discuss on...

    I've never been further than Ottawa to ride... in a couple of weeks, we're racing at Albion Hills for the 24 hour race of "Hot August Night"... I can't wait... And it better be HOT!

    You're not the *only* one from Quebec. Looks like we frequent the same forums, I usually lurk over at some of the other sections here but saw that you were the last one to post in this one. Figured I'd peek in and see if it was you.

    Do you mean PILOT?

    Is spelling important for pileits?

    I can not speak for every PILEIT, but spelling is something I certainly attempt to do well.

    My job description is to take product (corugated boxes) and PILE IT in a certain pattern for one customer or a certain slightly different pattern for another customer.

    Get the picture now? I do not like my job, but it pays (well) and provides opportunities for humour.
