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.
