Another Canuck

Greetings all, I just wanted to say hi/hello.
I'm typing this from work and still acheiving 100% performance, cause while nothing is broke, I'm peaking on efficiency.
You see I monitor internet and TV services here in the (Greater) Toronto Area.
When I'm not basking in the glow of the 120 TVs :sleep: , I can be found out on one of the many trails that dot the landscape around Toronto.
I am a mountainbiker. I own 3 steeds... a Blur , a steel reto-fitted singlespeed , and a commuter bike that almost never commutes .

I can't promise to post offen, as I'm not super chatty; however I do promise to follow the rules and always speak my mind.

Cheers.

hey zzyxzz, welcome. i'm a newbie here too.

I haven't been on any of the Toronto area trails for over 6 years now (lived in Peterborough for a while and stopped biking for a bit when I moved back to Toronto). Mostly I'm biking now as an alternative form of transportation, but I'm interested in getting back on the trails.

Where are the good ones these days? I used to ride the Don Valley trails mostly as they're the closest to me. And back when I rode a lot High Park still allowed bikes on trails, though I understand that's no longer the case.
Where would you recommend I ride?
