    There's no Place like Home for the Holidays [o]

    It was sunny, and above freezing in my hometown Niagara Falls this afternoon, so I rolled out on my CX bike to enjoy some of the nearby roads and trails.

    You can guess all you want, but I'm not sure I can verify the right answer. There's actually an alloy wheel on the Other side that would probably be a pretty good hint.

    Looks like you just got there after somebody finished driving their monster cross bike over it.





    Somebody should compile a collection of rusted out cars on singletrack. There are quite a few redneck parking jobs around Ontario.

    Yeah... with a 4 cylinder Chrysler engine.

    My guess, a Plymouth Acclaim.

    Glamourized K-car.

    Is that on (near) the Bruce trail between Bevan Heights and Queenston? If so I believe I know that structure - it is an old house and the owner's name is engraved in one of the stones or something like that.

    If it's somewhere else, then I've no clue. There are plenty of those sorts of sites around here

    It's the section of (Bruce) singletrack that you can pick up right across the road (York) from the Upper Canada Heritage Trail (near the golf course), and heads toward the bottom of the hill on St Paul.
