Yes, you will feel that at work today... lol

Hello. I am a Kingston rider too. Very new to the Sport, and I stick to MTB. I have been Friends with Joe (vanno) for a couple of years I guess, Well at least before we both got back into riding.. We should all try to head out sometime to the trails, at around the same time. I think it would be a good day.

Soon I plan on mapping those trails out with a GPS. I will keep you updated.

FIST420 10-22-07 08:04 AM

Of course! More riders as soon as I move out of Kingston... URGH!!!

Hey thatís awesome youíre getting back into it. We should get together before it gets to cold. I hope to get out this Sunday if all goes right 50/50 chance of that.
How about you guys?

The mapping would be cool, donít think Iíve even been through the whole place.

The Garmin Nuvi 250 keeps calling my name no dice yet.

FIST420 10-23-07 06:26 AM

URGH!!

I wanna go!!

:(

Bail King 10-23-07 07:04 AM

I am heading out Sat morning Rain or shine. Not going to go really hard, jst kind of a nice ride, and do some mapping for next season. That will give me all winter to make then as easy to read as possible. I am going to start with the trails over by the base. I work on the base and have never been on that trial, I figured its time to try it out. When I get some maps up I will post a link or something for you guys.. Or PM me a reminder (cause it will take a while) and I will get something to you guys...

Saturdays are a no go for me, sorry canít make it.
Taking it easy would be a good thing Jason & i were out two weeks ago & it was hard to follow the trail cause of all the leaves on the ground.

I have yet to get down around the base/fort henry but mark from cycle path said there was some good riding there. He also said they have been yelled at to get lost by security ha ha

Good luck with the maps.

Holla if you head out on Sunday.

vanno 10-24-07 09:11 PM

I will be out both days...Saturday at the Base, Sunday at Collins Bay.
look for the all black Columbia with the orange rear wheel...throw a rock at me

Bail King 10-25-07 06:38 AM

I wil go just to throw the rock... haha I wont even bring my bike.... hahaha.. I justed pick up a handle bar mount for my GPS so I will be going nice and slow, trying to read what its doing...

See ya saturday Vanno... And depending on what the wife is up to, maybe sunday also. :)

sweep242 10-27-07 06:27 AM

I hope to get down there around 10:00 - 10:30 after i get the crew out the door. Anytime in mind for you guys?

The trails will be slick with all this rain but it is supposed to be nice!

vanno 10-27-07 02:22 PM

I have no problem with going for 10

sweep242 10-27-07 07:04 PM

See you on the roadside before hand otherwise inside!

Bail King 10-28-07 08:47 PM

Aww.. That sucks I missed today.... Crap... I did, on the other hand, go to Picton today (by car) And picked apples, and also stoped by a nice little shop called "Bloomfeild Bicycle Co." and picked up a handy dandy map to their trails up on Macaulay Mountain. I am thinking about going there next weekend if anyone is interested.

Joe. If you read this tonight (sunday) I will call you tomorrow to chat about it...

sweep242 11-03-07 06:48 PM

Short notice i know, but i plan to go f or a romp in the morning if anyone can/intersted 10:00 Taylor Kidd blvd.

*Edit just looked at Macaulay Mountain sounds like fun cant belive I have not even heard of it love to go some other time.

Bail King 11-05-07 06:48 AM

I am hoping, My brother, His girlfriend, vanno, and myself, will be at Macaulay Mountain next saturday.. No times planed yet, but if you can get a better chunk of saturday free, you should come.

sweep242 11-08-07 06:30 PM

Bail King 11-09-07 10:05 PM

sweep242 11-18-07 09:46 PM
