Where are those trails?

My team insists on riding only in Dundas and while they're hilly the trails there are not technical at all, I'm trying to convince them to branch out but don't know anywhere in the Ancaster/Dundas area to go instead! The Bruce Trail around Waterdown is a lot of fun but most of them aren't willing to head out that far

Those trails are the Iroquois Trails near chedoke golf course. If you come from ancaster you can get to them by going on the bridge that goes over the 403, and just following that trail until you notice a small trailhead on the left side, plenty of fun trails in there.

BTW what team do you ride for?

Those trails aren't amzing, they are short and aren't treated well, but they have a few fast technicals. Just fun for a school night.

Roxter and I usually hit up the Red Hill area, there are about 4-5 downhill sections that last about 45 sec. each, with a a choice of three long hills to ride up...you can go for hours..

If you see us, hit us up...EHDT straight Reppin!

We usualy only do short rides when we go out as a team since we ride on week nights so it may still be worth checking out... Thanks

I ride with these guys: www.teamwescam.com (I know the site is horrible, I'm working on putting together a new one), the team isn't really competative we just do the two 24 hour races hosted by Chico Racing and a weekly ride, all the other events are done independantly.
