In 2010 a friend and I rode around Algonquin Park. The after turning off the pavement just north of Deep River we only did 1 km of pavement in total all the way to South River. The rest was trail, logging road, snowmobile trail and pipeline trail. I prepared a route with Garmin Topo and improvished a bit when we came across some snowmobile trails. Worked out awesome.

In 2010 there was a spot of trail unpassable when a beaver dam let go. We went back in 2012 and added a whole lot more trail to the route.

I wouldn't mind going back this year. There are a few places where I know I can add more trail.

There are a couple pics from the Around Algonquin Ride here, http://www.odsc.on.ca/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=17896

Wink lesson learned

lesson one, three beer 10-15 min (slow day) not much learned.
Lesson two, 12 beer good after noon, should learn fair bit till 8 beer then lesson might get diluted.
Lesson three, 12 beer and crown, repeat lesson two and add some sodomy

lesson learned, while learning to draw lines on a map, be careful the line does not end in your end.

Of course the lesson only lasts as long as it takes to drink 3 beers. For 12 beers you get a full afternoon lesson...but it requires a drive home for me and my car. Throw a Mickey of crown into the mix and you get the full afternoon and evening lesson, you won't need to drive me home just provide a blanket on the floor somewhere

Maynooth and Bancroft

Well just got back from my cottage just outside Maynooth. And as you probably have heard there is a lot of water damage to the roads, so I can only assume a lot of the trails will will be effected to. Up that way there are tons of water crossing. So check it out before you go, cause I'm sure it will be quite a while before any trail bridge is repaired.
I can't attach pics but look on my crack book account and I posted some there.
