whew

Bell's Two Hearted Ale at Dominick's in Ann Arbor..on the day of the Alpe d'Huez stage


Cool self portrait shot

We just got back from NY yesterday, now we're in Michigan again until we leave on Thursday for the cheese state. We rode some dirt on the Brock Escarpment on the way and then did some road riding while we were in NY. The Bruce Trail in St. Catharine's was pretty sweet!! Steep, though..ups and downs on the escarpment. Too bad it had just poured rain when we started riding because the roots were super slick..made it kind of sketch in parts....really fun though. Next time we go over there I'd like to check out the BT near Hamilton, ON. Yesterday we tried hitting up supposedly the "best singletrack in Niagara", the Short Hills, but never found the ^&*&$#@ road to turn on. We were following the directions on dirtworld.com ...never again. We ended up going over an hour out of our way and didn't even get to ride. Anyway, I've got tons of pics to upload from our little side trip soon...for now, here's some old ones:

Wow, I didn't know that you could ride on the Bruce trail. I thought it was hikers only, like the Appalachian Trail. Good to know.

lorna,

i don't think you can legally ride all of the BT. apparently there are some sections that are OK. we didn't see any "no bikes" signs and i found the trail on mtbr.com. i guess some research would be required before heading out to ride it. it sure was sweet though!
