black strap - Trail, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

DESCRIPTION

Very hard trail with steep climbs and soft weird descents with fast descents down the ski hill. Along with that there are trails on the cross country ski trails. And in the winter they have great skiing and snowboarding with a great snowboard park. Remember Check out Douglas Park.

This is an excellent and difficult cross country race trail. lots of non technical climbing and some fresh cut (August 98) singletrack tecnical climbing sections. Overall a good grueling race site. However, the above review lists the length as 14.5 km. well, I think 7 to 10 is more like it. Last race I did there was five laps and took me 3 hours exactly. You do the math. I have to say that it is probably a rather boring course to ride though. too much fireroad and long tough boring climbs. some good sections, but overall better suited to racing and weeding out the weak.

There is some new singletrack here, its good and technical, other than the xc ski trails, which are fast though. If you want to climb anywhere in Saskatchewan, this is one of the best places to do it. It is a race course on the provincial circuit, and gives what feels like the most feet of climbing.

Park at the ski chalet and ride up the t-bar lift, to the right is a downhill which gets you
to a gnarly climb that turns into technical singletrack real fast. From there you can pretty much
loop around the back of the hill, climb it and the route is pretty much easy to figure out
from there.

Saksatoon City trails are supa-technical (in places) and roller-coastery in others. They are mostly singletrack and are loads of fun. Just drop down by the river, and if you don't find trails within five minutes, you're an idiot.

Would be much better if there was large sets of doubles
on the course where you can bust out big air. Would also be better if there was a wicked trials course where you could do big drops and get hurt.

Well, the new single track is pretty sweet. All the open hills to ride on are the shits though. If you go there I'd recomend going from on techniqual section to another anything in between takes to much energy.

Customer Service

Driving along the highway between regina and saskatoon you'll see a sign.

The technical spots are relatively short, but lots of fun. Logs,roots,and a few steep drop-ins. Lots of clinbing if you are racing, otherwise skip it. The best time to ride is in the spring before the grass gets too high. I recommend doing the climb to the very top of the big hill, then bombing down the big hill to the bunny hill, and the bunny hill to the road, all without touching your brakes. Woo-hoo!

Customer Service

Just do what the instructions say. If you get lost then you are too stupid to mtb, so just stick to being a roadie

Go to Saskatoon to one of the bike shops (Bike Doctor) and ask some of the locals to take you riding, easy or hard, there is something for everyone.

Rode the race last weekend... I almost died after! The technical sections are cool, but there was too much open stuff on cross-country ski trails. Those downhills were fun though... pulling no-brakers is not for chickens...

BTW, Saskatoon races are much better than Regina races. I just like the atmosphere better. Mind you, it would be cool if there could be a Regina race somewhere with a building that isn't in the middle of nowhere!
