I did a couple of exploratory rides in there last year and there is a ton of dirt riding to be done in there. I hear something like a thousand miles of trails from easy gravel raods to really knarly looking stuff. I got cold feet being on the big GS and trying some of the smaller trails so I'm looking for something smaller this year. ATV's are not allowed in there, not like the Larose Forest so it's hunters, fishermen and loggers.

Keep the thread going and I'll join you guys for some of those Saturday rides

Thanks for the linky's. Ill have to explore that part of PQ as I normally roll around the Rouge/148/Pine hill area.
I have to tell you I am getting pretty antsy (as I always do in Feb) but more so now as the ice has left my road and I couldnt give a shit about getting the bike filthy (Hard to do with my Bonneville as it was too sweet to get full of shit and corruption)
I fired it up and popped through some gears.. I also made it legal like as I got my plates and insurance up to snuff.
Maybe
Just maybe, winter has said adieu? (yeah I know I just f***** it for all of us for another 2 months! )

another noob here

Hey lads - I'm new to the game and based in Ottawa (Westboro). Bought myself a '98 KLR 650 with low mileage to get into the game this summer. Haven't ridden much except for trail riding up in Calabogie on an XR200, but have spent the last 20+ years on mountain bikes.

Keep me in the loop for weekend rides. Would like to string rides together from town out to Calabogie - backroads, K&P Trail, powerlines, etc. West Quebec looks interesting too.

dialdn - you look familiar....you're from Manotick by any chance?

Hey Frazman:

Kewl, the more the merrier.

Yep, grew up there for a bit then worked at Ambler IGA, did St.Leonard's and St.Mark's.

PM and we can sort it out :-)

EDIT: I am guessing while we never biked togther, we had connected over mapping the Kanata Lakes trails.

There is a Facebook St.Leonard's alumni group. I posted some class pics and I think you are in the one from 1976.
