How would the runs at Keppoch be on a 5" trail bike? Manageable? I ride a Kona Process 134.

you shouldn’t have any problems

Keppoch has a slick new website. Complete with a new trail map, events calendar and links to all their trails on Trailforks.

Looks nice and easy to use. The map is nice to along with the links to trail forks.

All of a sudden, I feel a need to visit Antigonish.

I was thinking about a road trip myself. I can’t get away this weekend though.

No, this weekend isn’t good for me either.
Canada Day weekend is blocked with ‘roadie’ stuff
Weekend after I’m travelling for work…

Hopefully before the end of July?

Be cool if we could organize a large enough group of ECMTBers to make it worthwhile for them to run the shuttle on a Saturday… I’d probably stay over and shuttle Sunday too!

I was thinking about going up again but not till August sometime. Awesome trails hit everyone on father’s day weekend.

I’m up in antigonish a few times/month for work, so I try to hit up keppoch as much as possible when I’m there. The place gets better and better every time I ride it. My kids love the pump track and skills trail. My 7 yr old rode to the top with me last summer-proud papa moment.
Bring ur bug spray if you go!

I took 5 stitches in my knee from a crash last week. Once those are out I am definitely headed to Keppoch. I love the trails there. Even the climbs are fun

New trails, more shuttles, all good.
