zero

Zero trick or treaters in the country, but that's ok cuz I love Mars Bars! Glad you two goblins got out riding today! There is often slush and snow on Halloween so will have to consider this a warm fall, although we seemed to have missed the Indian Summer (not PC to say that I am sure)that I remember a kid!

Carl, you live at the end of a dark spooky lane on the other side of the tracks... There should have been a line up...

I've never done the gravel road 308 from East Braintree down south thru the Sandilands to Moose Lake. I see you can cut back towards Woodridge past Whitemouth Lake. What's that like for a loop?

Got a set of Advmonster M15 LED spotlights in today. Have one installed (it works). They look like very decent quality.

Sandilands maybe a dangerous place these days, black powder guns are pointed at anything that moves.

Yup, taking the KLR to St Andrews to pull the tranny on the RT.
Lee's talking about putting the Strom on the road and meeting up with Deborah (Mrs Calan818) in Portage la Prairie...
Have fun kids!

Yup, pretty close, but if not sick of gravel by that time, from Woodridge you can cut across to St. Malo and go home that way for something different. I crossed over at Otterburne last time and followed the river back to Wpg - awesome route.

That looks like a great run... 6hrs is an ambitious schedule.

Maybe save that one for warmer weather, eh. Is a ride just out to Woodridge and back to Wpg too much? At least we'd get a taste of the Sandilands. Pretty cool riding across the Bedford ridge... and nice view from up there.

This pic was taken from up on the ridge:

Spraque Run

Thats one thing I never did is the East Baintree run this year. Its a long day. I usually went through Vita, Spraque, West Hawk, and Seven Sisters and then angled home from there. By the time I get home its over 600 kms if I remember correctly. Its a good ride. A good ride for next summer. This time of the year if you stick to the paved roads you should be ok but off the beaten path you might get lead poisoning.

You said it Charlie... Black powder can hit a deer a 250 yards, that would leave a mark on the paint for sure.
I can imagine it would be a dusty ride, Mark96 and I stirred up a pretty good cloud on the way to Niverville on Thursday.

I would be curious to see how many pirates will be riding today... Standing room only at Tim's on Main Street.
