Had a great ride to Bragg creek on Sunday. Bike was salty by the time I got home. Parents coming Thursday night so no ride Friday. Saturday or Sunday may materialize though.

300kms Today!

OK boys and girls. All paved and gravel roads are open and dry between here Bragg, Turner Valley and Longview. Everything in between is actually dusty in spots. Its all good, so get those dualsports and adventure bikes out of moth balls and let em rip!

Yup!

Nothing in the Canmore area itself other than the Spray Lakes Rd. You need a street legal bike to do that though. And no riding in the Parks for sure.

Heading to Moab on Tuesday if you have time off work. you would want more aggressive tyres on that Duke though. Death Valley after that. PM me if your interested. We often do short trips out of Canmore

Moab

Please excuse my ignorance but this Moab sounds cool - what and where is it? Really chomping at the bit to get my tiger xc outta the garage. Even took off the plastic moulding and am designing some mounting plates for twin rotopax up front!

Moab is an off road mecca in Utah. You can take your 800 and see a lot of the country there. Arches National park is 10 minutes up the road, Horseshoe not far and you can make Bryce Canyon from Moab rather easily, too. The TAT goes through that area.

Moab is great on MX type bikes.

Moab, and White Rim Trail is sweet. Rode it with RED05 last year. PNE I also reside in Canmore. Shoot me a PM and we can add you to the call out list when we go out for a ride. Through Kananaskis to Bragg is a fun ride to, just to get your feet wet. Also thinking of a trip up the forestry trunk road to the Hinton, Edson area then Jasper. I have plenty of family there, and then down the 93 to Lake Louise and home. That'll be a trip for this year too.

Mike
