Ted has used the bike stand that you group ordered to change out a flat, which worked out well...

So IMHO I highly suggest getting one... of each

Thanks for saving my neck... litteraly..
That's great Sean, sure glad you had the foresight to buy the Leatt!

Congrats on the new bike, Ted. Damn, forgot to get the book, even though we were through Merrickville three times this weekend.

I was on the 511 today and noticed the posts for a gate, and signs saying Private Property at the Three Towers line... Wonder what's going on there?

Wow. Just wow. The book looks great!

Thanks Ted!

I had a 8 hour great ride yesterday exploring some new to me routes. Cali Road, then K&P up to Renfrew, back roads, logging roads and some double track back down to Centenial Lake Road, pavement to Ompah, K&P back north To Calabogie, 511 south and back towards Almonte.


Great variety and beautiful weather

If I go past Mumfords to the dam at the end, near Black Donald and go up behind it there are a bunch of trails heading in different directions.

Any info on what's good and where they lead??
