Been away from the forums for a while...

Turkey Point, Ontario. Spring is finally here.

Tall pines on the Spinal Tap Trail at Turkey Point this morning...

Apparently I need to spread reputation around before I give it to you again. :D

It's been a dismal spring, even for here where spring is always pretty dismal. It is actually snowing this morning. Haven't been doing much riding but have been busy with early season trail building. Here's a section that I just finished on the weekend. Lots and lots of rocks and many buckets of dirt later, we have a good transition on this near vertical roll.

That looks gnarly! Nice work!

Thanks! It's gnarly alright but I think less gnarly now than before. The original transition was pretty harsh, this one should be smoother and allow you to carry a bit of speed into the next roller/jump. Over the winter I packed it with snow and that smoothed it out enough so you could jump the second rock (in the foreground in the last pic). Hopefully I will get to ride it on the weekend if it ever stops snowing and raining.

Awesome and inspiring thread! Sorry I don't have a sweet ride photo, it's just my backyard. But I can share my passion; my 94ish Hardrock after its first wash in about fifteen years! I'm starting to regret the bath, it has gotten all rusty on the chainstay. Apparently, the grease and grime was protecting the finish!

Anyhow, if anyone knows of any schweet trails that my old beater can handle in the SD&G area of Ontario, let me know. I'd love to rip 'em up with my 8 year old son and his new mountain bike.

Nice classic iron... love seeing old bikes still in service!
