K&P Grind

Sunday was a long ride day. So it was up the K&P trail for some unfinished business... meaning had ridden part of it but turned back early as time was tight for getting back to town.

                     The Ed Whitlock route choice.


Everytime it rains the swamps on either side add some fun.

Welcome to farm land.

Don't see it but it's a slight uphill grade almost all the way.

Ah.. KOA is nearby and I hear they have stuff for kids to play on.

Can't see it but followed the Kenyan methodolgy with a slight tweak for cycling. That being easy gear on the way up.

Checked out briefly down the hydro line double track. But turned back as it had piles of loose limestone rock. And that stuff and CX tires don't go well together.

New trail surface.

About 80k from here to Smith Falls via ATV/snomachine track... Ridgerunners.

Hmmm... future ride.

Harrowsmith where it's now the Cataraqui trail.

And to further follow the Kenyan methodolgy... ride hard on the way back. The Big Ring.

Rouge Bake

What to do on a baking hot Tuesday? I know let's go for a 4 hour cruise in the Rouge. So after loading up with water and a can of Guinness for the potential idea of a beer on the water near the end. It was off.

  Looking up at the old Beare Rd landfill aka Ben Trash.


Someone's surveillance drone?

Into the pines.

Where's the Stake?

Ah.. the Finch Hydro line

Let's play find the hole in the grass.

The top of the mandatory Ben Trash climb.

After 4 hours or riding and bush bashing the plug was pulled at Kingston road as water was depleted and AC was calling. Have to revisit this again.
