I'm down for anything as long as my fat arsed tiger with street tires can manage it. California road was no problem.

Aug 9-10 Weekend

Looks like a bunch of FF's will be invading your area next weekend.
Might be a good excuse to plan an over-nighter complete with Pig Roast.

Ashby Lake Rd - Smith Lake Rd Trout Lake Rd

What are the dual track roads and trails like in the Ashby Lake Rd - Smith Lake Rd - Trout Lake Rd north of Bon Echo, east of Hwy 41 and south of Hwy 28. Does anybody have some good GPS tracks?

Much the same as the rest of that area - range from simple smooth gravel, to ATV type trails, and rougher. The P-D often goes through that area, and I've often ridden through there.

I'm there almost every week this summer so why not join me on my next ride?

I have DS tracks for most of Ontario so I'm sure I can get you what you need.

How do you define "good GPS tracks"? The best source I know for meaningful tracks is DualSportMaps.com. CraftyCoder has a program that analyses the track data (speed, elevation,?) and estimates the difficulty and colour codes each section. My newer tracklogs are all fully detailed (i.e. not filtered to 500 points like the old GPS did) so I think they are good (I make maps from them) but you may not be able to tell whether it's smooth gravel that I rode slowly or a gnarly that I raced through. To me, a good track needs a written description - type of bike used, skill level, terrain type, etc.

However, a picture is worth 1000 words so a while back I started cataloging DS roads and trails and posted them here: https://picasaweb.google.com/1061524...logueSOntario#

I had a look at that website. Great idea and very helpful. My GoPro is annoying me immensely and I'm thinking of getting a Virb. I take it that would work well for this kind of thing?

I also hated my GoPros. Love the Virb, though it also is not perfect yet. But nothing about the Virbs annoy me as much as the GP did. Everything about GP is crap.

GPSCity.ca apparently has the Dark Elite for $329 until Friday. And Costco has the Virbs online too. Even CTC has them in the store but as with anything gps related, it's more expensive than anywhere else.

As much as I would love to join in this ride I have to work nights all weekend and will not be off in time to do so.
