Timmins Area Riders

Anyone interested in doing some riding this spring/summer.

I'll be in town a few times over the summer and have some tracks planned but also open to other ideas.

I am riding a F800GS so I am looking to keep it to logging roads and light offroad. I was thinking of the following:
  1. Pine South to Night Hawk to South Porcupine back to Timmins
  2. A loop up around Kamiscotia Lake
  3. Dalton Road to Pine South with a detour to wawiatin falls or down to the point across from the cache
If you are interested to do something a little longer, let me know as well.

cheers,
Kevin

Hi Dirtrider1970,

I am just north east of Guelph about 10min from Fergus. If you are interested to go on some rides here, I'm game for that to.

If you are interested in the Timmins trip, lets just throw some ideas out there and see if anyone else is interested.

We can ride up all the way, trailer up all the way or split the difference. If we would trailer up at least half way or stick to pavement most of the way, it would give us more time riding/exploring up north.

what are your thoughts and any other takers?

Kevin

I am in St Clements not that far from you also have a F800GS, may think about that Timmins ride. Love the Timmins area been there many times. We are also planning a ride in August with a few other friends which will be up to Tobermorey and stay at my cottage and then hop the boat Saturday morning and explore Manitoulin Island, around the top and ride come back down the other side. Or come back to the cottage and explore the Tobermorey area.

Timmins Ride - Let me know if you feel up to something. It looks like there is another Thread with some other riders that may be interested - their ride last rear looks like a real adventure 4 days with some serious riding!

Riding locally, let me know if you want to do some local riding as well - I don't get out much with work and all so I am itching to do some riding. Maybe we should start a separate thread on that if there is any interest.

10-4 clintonroy. My first trip to town is easter weekend but I'm thinking it may still be a bit early to do any riding. Correct me if I wrong though
If that weekend does not work, I'll let you know my next visit date.

thanks dirtrider1970,

also, there is another thread "Northern Ontario Trip Aug. Sat. 9- Tues.12" that may have some riders interested to do something up there and their trips last year looks like it was a blast - it would be a bigger time commitment but this would likely fit in nicely. I'm following that thread for the longer ride but when I am in town for holidays, still plan to do some day trips.

I'll be in timmins the week of july 20th - 26th and i'll probably trailer my bike up that week to do some day trips here and there. I'll likely be staying at a cottage on Mattagami lake - basically across from the haven.

Did a snowmobile loop starting in Kirkland Lake to Timmins and back, had planned to sled up to the Abitibi Canyon but, encountered sled troubles and cut the mileage short. For most of the trip, I kept thinking the forest roads would be awesome to explore in the area!

I did a search and found this ride report of the area http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...hlight=Abitibi

I would be interested in trying to connect with others if the timing works. Happy to rough camp or motel it whatever works.

Timmins resident here! Lots of great riding 'round these parts.

GPSAT is my riding partner and we're planning on plenty of trips this season.

I ride dirt every day so just fire off a PM when you want to go!
