    Hi Folks,
    I’m supposed to be leading the ride this Saturday, but its too cold for me. If any other brave person wishes to lead the ride please post.

    Let me see what my Saturday is like – I may have family commitments. If not, I’ll lead. I’ll post a route Friday evening if I’m able to.

    With the cold, I may stick to something more sheltered, maybe columbia woods or heath valley trail into the grand river trail.

    I will be there on cx. Depending on temp and roads, could do a Durst Empey loop.

    I might be out on my fat bike! CX isn’t winterized yet…

    -17 with wind chill at 09h00. Without at doubt, that is frost bite territory for my fingers and toes at CX speeds out in the open.

    I might be able to tolerate some time on the fat bike, in the woods with flat pedals and my regular winter boots. I’m feeling a little under the weather right now. I will have to see how I feel in the morning.

    Ok I can lead. Hmm those temps do sound like fatbike, flat pedals, and big boots time. I’ll post a route shortly, I’ll try and keep it sheltered.

    Alright, here we go. Mostly through the city, some new-to-me trails connecting areas I do know. Avon trail, RIM park, Bechtel Park, Breithaupt park, Forwell trail, etc…

    Am I going to get stuck along the way on a CX bike? Is anyone else riding one? I will extract the MTB from deep within the recesses of my shed if necessary…

    Ana: meet at the usual place at the outlet mall. I’ll meet along the way somewhere since the route passed near my house!

    Give it a go, Craig. You can follow in the fat tracks. Worst spot will probably be the heath valley trail at the start. Rest ot the trails will likely be packed by walkers anyways.
