My name is Tom and I hope that this is appropriate to post here. I am fairly new to Halifax and have recently gotten back into mountain biking. I am originally from out west and rode a ton as a kid, but I’ve taken about 15 years off. My fiance’ and I live in Governor’s Brook and had been taking advantage of the McIntosh Run trials until she broke her leg on a recent ride. We are pretty safety minded people and have decided that we won’t ride any trails solo. So, with my riding partner out of commission until at least the fall I was hoping that there would be someone/a group of people here that would be willing to let me tag along.
I’m still pretty green and getting my legs back under me, but I love a challenge and try my best to keep up. If it’s any incentive we live on Alabaster way and have a great backyard for post ride story telling and beverage enjoying.
Thanks and I look forward to the replies.
Hey @Tom_AM, totally appropriate to post here. We host a group ride every Tuesday night at 7pm at various trails around HRM. Tonight it’s at 9 Mile River, but we are frequently at McIntosh Run. You are always more than welcome to join us any time. Post ride beverages are always on tap. Hopefully your wife heals up quickly and she can join us sometime too.
@Rolls thanks for the response! hopefully I’ll see you out at a Tuesday night ride!!

Hey Tom my names josh and I’d love to have a riding bud
Hey Tom, Im just getting back to Mountain biking as well after say 20 years, very green, would love to get out for a ride with someone who knows the trails, nothing to crazy.
Hey @Tom_AM @DyerMaker, I’m in the same boat — getting back in after 20 years. I’d like to ride more, particularly at MacIntosh Run, but not confident enough in my skills to go solo yet. Let me know if you want to get out (as long as you don’t mind a slowish pace with plenty of water breaks )!
Planning on making a trip into McIntosh Run tomorow by mid morning. Thinking starting at Osprey and heading over to Pizza Corner and back. It’ll be a relaxed pace.
I might be heading over in the morning too. Ill msg ya if i do
Sounds good, thinking of being on the trail around 10ish but am flexible. Just need roughtly an hour heads up.
Just sent e-mail but Im in, what time were you thinking?
Looks like tomorrow am would be a go,
10 am sounds good to me. Seen Ospray on the trailforks map, but i could not find a Pizza Corner.
