Oops…Update..Note if coming from the North-road closure

August 5th, 2022 by in Everything

Hey folks coming from the North to MOC. Airport rd will be closed Sat Aug 6th for 10 days for a culvert replacement. Here’s the easiest detour if you don’t mind some gravel to get to MOC.

Head west (right if coming from the North) at flashing light (Dufferin 21) and take it to the to the 4th. Turn left (south) and take it to the 20th (River rd). Turn left on the 20th (east) and travel to your next right which is the 5th sideroad. Turn right (south) on the 5th and follow it to a natural bend east (17th sideroad). This will land you right across the road from MOC. Not a big detour. Add 20 min or so to your drive. Drive safely.

 

1pm “Twist and Flow” trail finishing up…anyone feel like raking?

August 4th, 2022 by in Everything

Chris W has been putting in quite the effort on the new  500m Twist and Flow trail on Broken Link. It just needs a small gang to help finish raking it out. We’re going to tackle and finish it off at 1pm (or anytime you can make it) Friday at 1pm. Should only take a couple hours with some extra hands. See you at the Lodge at MOC at 1pm or just ride out and lend a hand as much as you like. Nice to get this one riding smoothly.

August 13-14th fun bike weekend. Gravel, MTB, Race/ride, food truck, river, camping….

August 3rd, 2022 by in Everything

August 13th & 14th.

An event organized by Substance Projects which consists of a 40 or 100km ravel race/ride on the awesome gravel roads of Mulmur and/or a 30 or 60km Mountain Bike race at MOC/DCF.

Gravel Race starts and ends at Mansfield Skiways Saturday and tours the awesome backroads of Mulmur and beyond. BBQ at Mansfield Skiways during and immediately after the race. Then head over to Mansfield Outdoor Centre right across the road to soak those legs in the in the river and go for a swim. Then Food truck at 5pm at MOC and we are working on getting some live music in for some early evening entertainment around the campfires.

Mountain Bike race starts at MOC Sunday and is a 30 km single loop…no repetitive laps and loops. The 60km will be two laps of that. The course will be 95% single track as with the “Big Loop” there will be less traffic and bunching up. Good 2-track start to sort things out then a tonne of single track which still has great safe opportunities for passing. The loop will highlight some of the best trails in both MOC and Dufferin Forest and will feature a 1.3km downhill run as well as finishing on MOC’s new signature downhill finish, “Happy Hour”.  This is a Mountain bikers course!! Again, soak in the river after your race/ride and there will be a food truck there to refuel and fill you back up! This is a great way of getting a guided tour of all MOC has to offer as well as DCF.

Not done yet! There is also a category for those who want to do both days. Choose the 40km gravel/30km MTB or the 100k gravel/60km MTB options. Who will be overall King/Queen of the weekend???!!!!

Still not done….make a weekend out of it. We are working on live music/campfire for Sat night. Camping and cabins are available for rent so come up and make a night/weekend out of it and stay at MOC. Camping is $30 a night and Cabins (sleep 4-6) are $90 per night. Both offer access to washrooms and showers. To book send us a note to contact@mansfieldoutdoorcentre.ca

Cabins and camping are mostly always available for rental throughout the summer if you ever wish to have a “biking weekend/week” based out of MOC. The trails are open 7 days a week.

If you are member of MOC (or wish to purchase a $10 day pass) and not participating in the races, feel free to make your MTB or road ride stage from MOC on Saturday and join in on the food truck and music/campfire/camp-over. Why not make MOC your destination on Saturday the 13th and enjoy a great day with the cycling community. Spend the day…ride, socialize, swim in the river, enjoy the food truck and live music & camp-out. What and awesome day!!

Come and join the “Bike-fest” 🙂
