    BTW the Marlborough forest gates are open now...I started there, makes a nice addition to the CIS route. I'm, going to make an updated gps file that includes some it, and includes the old rail line we used to come home on.:deal

    Whatever you do, be careful of hunters and people out doing shotgun practice. As we rode into the last sandpit just off the 416 we were in range of a dozen people firing in the pits. One guy on a quad stopped us, and radio'd his buddies to tell them to be careful of us. You can hear them firing during this video:

    I'd be really interested to see the rail trail back!

    The forecast for tomorrow looks quite nice.

    Quantis and I planning to ride, but we don't know where yet.

    If anyone would like to join us, the more the merrier.
