Renegade Signage Removed from Skyloft Connector

An freelance sign was installed at the top of the new Skyloft Connector trail.

The sign has been removed, since all signage, trail maintenance, trail repairs and building in Durham Forest needs the express permission of Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA).

In any case, LSRCA built the trail, so they get to officially name it. In the meantime, call it what you will, but maybe Skyloft Connector will have to do. It is, after all, a mult-use trail, not expressly built for mountain bikes.

Ladies Tail Gate Party!

After the Ladies ride monday night there was a Tail Gate Party, with cold lemon aid.  A cheerful refreshing time for all!

Walked the Forest today (Saturday the 12th) from the main parking lot. Impassable to bikes. Still a substantial layer of soft snow covering 80% of the trails and forest floor.
