For Winnipeg and the surrounding area!

Alright folk, after alot of talking I figured it was about time that somebody started a little thread that us Winnipegers and southern Manitobans can use as a simple way of letting others know if we are planning a ride instead of using the northern riders thread (which is quite large and hard to follow at times)

The purpose of this thread is to set up rides or just throw out an open invitation for anybody listening to join up and hit the dirt (or pavement if your into that kind of thing).

I would like people to avoid using this as a thread for posting pictures and off topic conversations, yes you can link to a thread of pictures you took on a ride, but lets avoid letting this thread balloon out of controll and turn into another northern riders thread.

Please try to keep postings simple such as:

Date: June 7th
Time: Noon
Meeting Point: The Forks
Destination: Agassiz Forest (or no destination if its not decided)

Sound good? (and no im not planning a ride for tomorrow, thats just an example)

Heard mention of doing a run to Bissett..... Speedracer are you going set up a date and time for this one ? I imagine it will be an over nighter somewhere in the Nopoming Park.

I'll be watching

I will be watching for rides. Bisset sounds like fun.

Great idea on the local post. I do want to join in on one of the Northern Ontario rides though. That is such nice country.

Planning to do an over nighter in the whiteshell area on June 13th over to a day of riding on June 14th.

Its not set in stone that it will be the whiteshell but I was hoping to head out to the shield. Anybody is welcome to come and it is supposed to be fairly warm with no chance of snow

Let me know what people think as I would like to get some details hammered out at least a couple days in advance .

Perhaps I will toss a link over in the Northern Riders thread and see if we can get any interest from that area.

Passport and a plan

I'm thinking about taking friday off and exploring the Beltrami State Forest in MN. A roughly 600km day. I've been there before, roads are nicely graded gravel/sand. There's a couple "drive in backcountry" camping sites I want to check out. Leave wpg about 7am, try to be home for dinner. Any retired or lightly employed folks interested?

Roughly this route:

Yea, I'm thinking it would be somewhere north of Nopiming actually. It's a great road with lost of variety. Everything from riding on sand, gravel, grass. Sometimes there's even a little water to play in depending on the rain. Over night along one of the many lakes would be nice with a little fishing, campfire, etc. Let me put my thinking cap on for a date and I'll let you know soon.

JimToe - glad to have some interest in the ride.

There's some meetings I really should be at on Monday, for me that day "shouldn't" be an option.

However - I'll see how Friday plays out. If I wake up and feel like working (right!) I'll go to work. If the skies look good...I'll go riding.

Either way, I'll let you know - maybe tomorrow.

I'll see what i can do about getting the time off for bissett, would we be leaving later on friday, or early? If it was later on friday then it may be easier to get time.
