Tomorrow's ride day, Sept 29, has been cancelled due to a lack of interest and rather wet trails. Let's try again for October 6.

Hey Terry, unfortunatly I won’t be able to make oct 6 but for next time I would love to come. I am a upper intermediate rider looking to learn some advanced stuff, (slow, trials-like) would your place be good for that? Thx

Hi Nick, I don't want to make any false claims about my little goat trails here. They are tight to the point that it is impossible to get any real speed going and there is no need to get out of first gear in most places. Doing all the trails without dabbing (touching a foot down), sitting or hitting a tree is great fun and certainly a bit of a challenge to do it as fast as you can. About 15-20 minutes, rinse and repeat. However, there is simply no where near the elevation changes compared to Limerick or Calabogie so you will not find it challenging in comparison. Riding my trails is more about fun with the kids and a bit of practice in balance and steering precision where getting it wrong just results in exiting the trail and winding up on the next trail over or perhaps an abrupt stop into a tree. Either way its a good laugh for the riders following you.

My trials area, featured in the video loop on the BMA's new website, has some nice rocks to ride over. I'm not a trials rider myself so I'm not the one to offer advice or spotting. The best way to develop trials skills here is to team up with those that have been trials riding here and let them point out some good lines to try and to help with techniques that will set you up correctly for the next obstacle. I suggest you contact Eric Brackenbury to see when he has some time to play this fall. I know he is busy at trials competitions now so it may be a few weeks before he'll be back here. He maintains a contact list of trials riders that play here on Wednesday evenings viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3329 but that's over for the season since it gets dark so early. I encourage trials practice here when I host my ride days but I ask that a few trials riders please pre-arrange to meet here so I don't need to keep an eye on just one of you in the rocks riding alone.
Cheers,
Terry

It's getting near the end of the season so I opened the donation jar and found $120.10. I just sent every penny of it to MSF. Thank you all very much.

Does anyone have a gas powered leaf blower I could borrow? (with or without an operator). I was out riding the trails last night and it is very hard to see them. It would take a while but perhaps its worth giving this a try since the leaves keep the trails from drying out and make navigation quite challenging. If 20 riders showed up on ride-day the trails would be clear in less than an hour but the reality is these leaves will be around well into June and blowing them clear may just be worth the effort.

With 35 mm of rain I think we can safely say this Sunday Oct 27 is not going to be a ride-day at my place.

I borrowed a leaf blower so I hope to soon find out if it will work to prep the trails a bit for next Saturday's ride day on November 2.

Reminder folks we have a ride-day Saturday November 2nd :D

The leaf bower I borrowed works great, I'm about 1/2 done now so the the trails should be easy to see and will dry out much faster than if there were still 3" of leaves covering them. All we need now is for the rain to end in time for Saturday's ride. Also we are getting close to hunting season so perhaps staying out of the woods where the hunting will taking place soon is not a bad idea.

P.S. The Saturday ride-day ends at 3:00 PM.
