    Winter Video Thread-

    With winter comes boredom and need of motivation. Especially if you are dreading the squirrel generator staring at walls going no where session.

    The rules are simple.. video. Cycling or endurance related.

    Still say footage in the late 80's was better. Look at Rooks rear wheel.

    Can't be thinking of the trainer already! With temperatures like we're having, I haven't even taken it out of the closet yet. I was out 3 times last week, and I am heading for my third ride this week if the rain stops tonight. I can't get over this awesome weather. I put together a fully rigid bike for Joyride, but the park is going to have to wait. Way too nice out there to ride indoors.

    I don't do trainers.

    Some of the best winter riding is at the Halton Agreement Forest near Milton. Get out there this winter if you haven't been!

    That is the best place to ride in the winter. Trails and temps. always seem to be prefect in there. Unfortunately I very rarely make it out there.

    Does anyone have a map of this area. I googled it, but I didn't find much. I want to check this out this winter. I gather there is parking?

    You can park at the Mohawk Race Track.

    Get in touch with Peter Weldon on the Defiant MTB group on facebook. He leads a weekly ride in there with the regulars and they always welcome new people to the rides. Parking is at Mohawk Race Track as mentioned and the rides start out from there.

    Thanks. Now that I see where it is exactly, Google Earth shows a parking lot off Campbellville Road as well. Is there a trailhead there?

    I will contact Peter and see what the group rides are about. I like exploring and playing on features when they are there. Not strictly into hammering through a place.

    The only parking lot off Campbellville Road as far as I know is Hilton Falls Conservation Area. There is indeed a trailhead there, but it comes with an entrance fee.

    As far as videos go I like to run through the Cyclingdirt archives. Some solid coverage of North American races from 2009. Including Kabush's win at Bromont.

    I have a bit of a personal issue with heights, so stuff like this always makes me pucker in all the wrong places. Cool looking spot though;

    <object width="640" height="360"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TaNBuqSuNqk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TaNBuqSuNqk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="360" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    No F'ing way would I ever ride that. A flat at the wrong time could be the end of ya, I just don't have that in me.

    Looks like fun, I need to add that to my vacation destinations. For me it's not too bad since I'm used to trails with lots of exposure and death drops, it's just a matter of size. There's not much difference between falling 60' to my death or falling 400' and going splat, I just get a few more seconds to flap my arms in the latter case.

    To clarify, my puckering is just from watching! Chance of me riding this type of trail = 0.
