Hello From Cochrane Ontario

Hey all! I love cycling and the outdoors and anything related to fitness! Kinda bored out here In Cochrane. Just moved into the area and its very quiet heh. Any one from the area into cycling or fitness? Hit me up on msn at cjfl@1047fm.net

Even if your not from the area I don't mind having new friends!

Good day all, Happy cycling!

Hi. I'm not from Cochrane, but I do pass through there from time to time. That whole area does not strick me as a cycling mecca, but I'm sure you don't have to look too hard to find places to ride.
Heck, just riding the highway out to Driftwood and back would be a good ride.
Just out of curiosity, where did you move from, and what brought you there?

Iroquois Falls is usually where I'm going to or coming from When I pass through Cochrane. Abitibi has a wee paper plant there as you know.

Hehe on the trans Canada, We are just about if not at the end of the line going north

I used to ride everyday But this year the season has been messed up, Was snowing late may. The summer has been mostly stormy so far. I spend my mornings at the gym or riding the bikes in the gym LOL.

I used to go in the smaller side country roads to avoid heavy traffic but now its ful of hogweed everywhere. I almost rubbed myself on some from the side of the road if I would not have dogged out of the way a few days ago.

Hello all. In case anyone here is interested. This is a mountain bike event happening in Nipigon Ontario on the 13th of August 2011.
As well on 14th as well.
The 13th is offering an 8 hour Enduro mtb race. More of a fun event for all and is open to all.
I will post the details below.

"
Looking for a challenge? Looking for fun? Looking for a bit of nostaglia? Looking for a something to do with a couple of good friends? Looking for a great weekend? Looking for a great memory? Looking for something truly EPIC?

Welcome to the Epic Adventures Mountain Bike Festival, a weekend devoted to the mountain bike and all its glory.

The Epic Adventures Mountain Bike Festival has it all!

Schedule

Friday, August 12 - Pump Track/Dirt Jump Jam Session - 6:00 p.m.
What better way to start a weekend, than with a evening of pumping and jumping. Basically a Meet & Greet/Weekend Opener/Tailgate Party to experience some pumps and jumps.

Saturday, August 13 - 8-Hour Enduro - 11 a.m.
The showcase of the festival is a gruelling 8-Hour Enduro, a throw-back to the early days of mountain biking on a old-school, tight, twisty and technical trail. The perfect mix of single-track, double-track, climbing and descending for just the right mix of pleasure and pain.
Enter as either a Solo rider or as a Team (maximum 4 riders). Choose from either the Advanced Loop (8.5 km) or the Novice Loop (4.5 km).

Sunday, August 14 - "Last Man/Woman Standing" Competition - 1:00 p.m.
This is a new event which combines the elements of a Short Track Cross-Country race and a Crit Race found in Road Cycling. Basically riders will complete as many laps around a short 1 km loop (mostly doubletrack to allow for passing) as possible. Any rider that is lapped is eliminated, the competition continues until only 1 rider is left on the course.
Prizes, Prizes and More Prizes!!! Our SPONSORS have gone all out!!!

Locations is Nipigon, Ontario, Canada

Here is the main link.
