Meet at the Gorge parking lot?


Yes! At the end of Gladys Porter Drive


Too bad, can’t make it till 2pm but do my best to be there. And from what I’ve heard from a very reliable Intel is there’s gonna be a Beer and Axe throwing afterparty? Would this gonna be the ECMTB ultimate X-mas party? :grin:


There is a strong possibility…


Canada plays their first game in the world juniors starting at 5 or 6 too!


Is anyone in the halifax/Truro and surrounding area willing to carpool? I’d love to make it out but it’s a bit of a drive
I could meet the other driver at their nearest highway exit


I may be able to, depending on when you want to be there. I probably in town tonight, but leaving Hali hopefully about 730 if I do stay in town.


Any ideas on how icy the trails will be after all that rain and the sudden drop in temperatures? Just wondering if I should fight to get my studded tires on…


I do not know for sure. I’ve been in Halifax all day but studs wouldn’t hurt. But fattie should be ok


Man I would love to test out the new rubber/carbide at this ride but sadly I think I’ll be in Amherst tomorrow. If anyone is looking for a Wednesday ride hit me up.


There is definitely some crunchy snow down here, so I expect some ice patches but I would say that studs are not necessary.


On my way down, may be a few minutes late.


Great ride guys! Conditions were perfect.
