    Would like to get out for an off-road type ride this coming weekend, thinking of a loop out west of Peterpatch, down the hogs-back, beyond Bethany, into the Ganni and across to Bewdley and back. Thinking of doing a meal in Bewdley and heading back to the Patch. This is of course dependent on weather conditions.

    The days are getting colder and shorter, pretty soon we will be looking for studs to install in the tires and searching for ice :rofl:rofl!

    Well Shawn, Keener and myself met at Bethany on Sunday morning and headed south via the trails to the Ganni, across to Bewdley, through Hope & Hamilton township through the Northumberland Forest where Shawn lead us to the Northumberland Trail Riders land for a membership BBQ. Met some lovely folks and filled our bellies with pulled pork sandwiches, chili, cheese curd, chips, cookies and drinks. The food was much appreciated.

    We renewed some old friendships and met some new folks, Keener & Shawn tested out the their single track on the property and then we headed back to the Patch.

    Mike

    A couple of riders have been doing the pre-ride for the Ontario Dual Sport Club, April 27th, 2013, Bethany Ride and have encountered a lot of water, mud, ice & snow on the un-maintained roads (Keener can confirm). 3 or 4 of us will be doing the final pre-ride Sunday so, we may run into each other on the trail.
