DCF Fat Bike trail condition

January 23rd, 2022 by in Everything

The trails started off great yesterday but kinda fell apart once the top packed layer got punched through. No ones fault…just too much snow to compact. More fresh snow last night. Trails will not likely be great today and snowshoeing would be a help. Groomer crew is scheduled back out Monday to keep packing.

Back to prime conditions soon!

Weekend Ride–Sat 1pm MOC

January 20th, 2022 by in Everything

Looks like an awesome day on Saturday. Trails are amazing and endless. 25km’s of SD machine groomed single track, 34km’s of machine groomed 2 track (old AT trails) and 6km’s of “human” groomed advance single track. What will the loop be???

Still outside after by the fire so puffy jackets. We can still warm up and change inside.

Groomer crew update–no riding tonight

January 19th, 2022 by in Everything

Yup, freshly groomed and still soft so let’s please avoid the trails today/tonight! They will be great once firmed up!

Snowshoes it is..

****Weds night ride-update ****

January 19th, 2022 by in Everything

Hi folks, reports back from the groomers that are out right now. Trails are being freshly groomed and still are a bit soft. If you can, bring gear to snowshoe just in case. We can get a good hike in and pack in the fun stuff!!

See you at 6pm

******Snowshoe time Update 4:45 start ********

January 17th, 2022 by in Everything

Everyone is tossing it in early at work so we will head out at 4:45. Some light, some dark!

Cheers!

 

Trail Conditions, Monday night snowshoe

January 17th, 2022 by in Everything

Well, trails were awesome on the weekend! Now…not so much. We’ll be out Wednesday grooming all day so trails should be back in top shape after. A few of us are going for a snowshoe tonight at 6pm to snowshoe and pull tire around the “yellow” MOC loop. That loop has been so much fun so we want to try and keep it open. It’s a bit sketchy for the groomer so we are going to do it old school.

If you feel like a frolic in the snow tonight feel free to join us a 6pm. Meeting at the Main Lodge at MOC.

Winter is here!

Weekend Ride & trail conditions

January 13th, 2022 by in Everything

Hi all, looking at the weather, it’s a no-brainer that the ride will be Sunday. 1pm MOC start. MOC will have the fires burning (literally) for post ride warm up and refreshments.

It’s been a light winter so far. Still not a tonne of snow and there is barely enough to get the groomer out. All trails are well ridden in by Fat Bikes and are in great Fat Bike shape. Maybe a good bit of snow on Monday so the groomer crew may be put to work!

Enjoy the trails and see you out there!

 

 

Saturday ride MOC @ 12:30….trails are awesome!!

January 7th, 2022 by in Everything

Looks like a nice day on Sat so let’s ride! 12:30 start time from Mansfield Outdoor Centre. Under new Covid reg’s we are welcome inside to use bathrooms, change rooms and a quick warm up by the fireplace(15min max). But they are having multiple outside fireplaces and picnic tables set up to enjoy a post ride beverage! Sweet! So bring a change of clothes, get changed somewhere warm, put on a puffy jacket & toque and enjoy the outside fire. It’s Canada!!!

The trails are hard packed and in great shape…still riding Happy Hour trail which I never expected in the winter. So good….

Happy New Year—Sunday Ride 1:30

January 1st, 2022 by in Everything

We hope everyone had a great night and off we go into 2022!!

Planing a Sunday ride from MOC at 1:30 on Sunday. Cold temps tonight and tomorrow with some fresh snow forecasted. So hopefully that means a couple of cm’s of fresh stuff on a hard packed base.

Fireplace will be on at MOC to warm up after….See you out there!

 

Weds Ride 4pm start MOC & Trail Update

December 28th, 2021 by in Everything

Hey folks, the weds ride will be starting at MOC at 4pm. Half day, half night ride. Fun!

MOC & DCF trails are in amazing shape for Fat Biking. All “bike groomed” (still not enough snow to run groomer).  We had a great ride today…still can’t believe we can Fat Bike the Big Chill, climb all of Karen’s Climb and Happy Hour is still a treat. Great to have some of the Collingwood crew along for the ride and a toasty warm social inside by the fire at MOC. All DCF trails are rideable and in great shape as well. Over 50km’s of Fat Bike Trails available.

Awesome.

 

Merry Xmas & happy holiday…Sunday ride

December 25th, 2021 by in Everything

Hi everyone, hopefully everyone had a great day!

2pm Sunday ride at MOC. Still snow and it should be frozen overnight. See you then!

 

 

Sat Ride-2pm, MOC

December 17th, 2021 by in Everything

Awesome day from the clean up crew today. Over 25 km’s of trails are cleared and leaf blown…more of that later…

2pm start from MOC tomorrow.  A bunch of snow forecasted so likely a Fat Bike Day out there.

See ya for the ride and happy hour by the fire!!

 

Friday trail work…

December 16th, 2021 by in Everything

We are planning on a bit of a trail blitz Friday. There was still some trees left and now I’m sure more added today. We are going to be set up with 4 “stick blowers” as well. We need to find two more folks that are willing to come out and go for a walk with a blower on their back.

If you want to help out you likely know how to reach me! You can always use the CONTACT tab on the right.

Snow coming on Sat so our window is getting very short.

Cheers!

Thursday night ride info

December 16th, 2021 by in Everything

Well that may of backfired! Crazy wind at the moment. We’ll have to wait and see if it settle at all for tonight. If riding is a no-go then we can always have a “social” (awesome idea Vince!). Meet at MOC at 6pm tonight and we can all catch up on the week.

So at the moment let’s sat we are not riding unless I repost later today.
