Newbie looking for riding buddies!

Recommended Posts

First off I am from the states, Indiana in particular. But I have been riding in Ontario for the last 2 years for my sledding time. This year all my regular riding buddies have chickened out in going to Ontario so I am now looking for some new ones.  I have had 3 trips planned only to have them back out at the last minute. So I have decided I am just going to drive up this Thursday and hopefully hook up  with someone. I am  planning on putting in Saulte Saint Marie and seeing where that takes me.  IF I don't find someone to ride with then maybe I can just do some small loops in t he area. I bought a season permit and have not even used it yet due to my friends cancellations and quite frankly I am tired of them ruining my trips at the last minute. So I normally would  not drive out with out other riders nor plans in place but I do not want the season to go by and never get to ride. I love riding the Wawa, Hornepayne Saulte Ste Marie areas and would also like to head east from the saulte if the opportunity presents itself. IF you can help me out or would like to ride some please contact me. I am a seasoned rider *over 20 years) , sticking mainly to trails with some off trail riding. I have a well maintained turbo 144 track sled and am pretty self sustaining. I like putting on some miles if conditions present and have put on as much as 375 miles in a day but can be content with lot slower days if seeing some great sights or if rough trails present themselves. Thanks for reading and I hope to make some great friends!

Welcome to OC!

 

Several years ago we did the Tracks to Trails train trip to Hearst. It was your Presidents Weekend & there were 3 riders from Ft. Wayne. They were getting off the train @ Dubreuilville. They were going to spend the next 3 days riding back to the Soo.

PM me as we live on Coldwater lake (next to I-69) and go often.  Many times I have room in the trailer or in the back of my truck.  I would also be able to meet you and show you many great riding areas.

Welcome to the forum.

 

I've ridden with AC + YA - he sure knows our northern trails (in particular the areas you mention).  

 

I hope you make it to northern Ontario.

I don't make most of the races and those weekends try to remember to avoid anything East of I-69 on Route 12.  I have done them years ago and my son loves the races and the "Faster Horses" long weekend concerts in the summer.  I think the concert is getting bigger every year.
