Fat bike – The home loop was groomed today for snowy single-track fat biking bliss using the “Mototank!”
Skate ski – The ski track was skate ski groomed, but it’s suggested you give it a bit more snow before you go full crazy on it as it was a bit thin in some locations and there are still some rocky/bony and wet sections. If someone dares go tomorrow, again let us know current conditions then. The trails have not been classic set yet, that’ll need some more snow.
How do I access the fat bike and ski trails?
Signs will go up shortly to give you better directions, but generally whether you are biking or skiing you head east from the barn across the field. After 50m or so you should see a split and if you are fat biking continue straight and go down the hill that normally ends your home loop rides. If you are going skiing turn right at the split and head down the road that runs to the south towards the pond (again, it’s probably a bit early for skiing).
Look here or the Facebook page for information on upcoming winter events, including bikeathlon which should kick off sometime in January (weather/conditions permitting) and will have a different route each week. Rob’s cooking up some great routes for the bikeathlon and you won’t want to miss these fun events.The Kingston Snophy is coming January 7th.
