Dust Bowl Enduro Ride

 So with another year and being unable to attend another Ontario event due to commitments. It was decided to get 6 hours of bike time. The chosen date was Sunday August 27th.  And of course just to make it a wee bit harder it will begin at 1 pm when it is good and hot.

Heading out from Team NFI world headquarters.

                                                       Went through Lemoines Point.

                     Normally there is water around this bit of rock in the Collins Bay trail system.

                                              Wickedly overgrown this year in some sections.

                                            Long way back to walk if one has a mechanical.

                                      Think this is the second time they cut the fields this year.

                            I know there is more trails under the hydroline north of the 401.

                                               Yes.. I did use a PED during this ride.

Had to turn back as it was almost 7 at this point. And had no lights. I know there is a way via this hydro line quad track to get to Odessa. Another ride to see is in order.

It's only 15 minutes of riding back but after nearly 6 hours feels alot longer then that.

                                                          Seems it was a bit dusty.

And after 6 hour and 45 minutes was back at the house. Feeling cooked and needing food. And with unfinished business on my mind as I wasn't able to try to get to Odessa. But that should be fixed up sooner then later.
