Go with the ITG.

I've heard the trails have been very good.

I'll let you know what I find tomorrow.

I was out on Sunday. Trails were in great shape.

West of the city is still good as there is not as much water. On Saturday we found anywhere there was water running under the trails, small creeks, ponds etc, it had started to erode the sides of the trials.  Still rideable but had to be cautious of some narrow spots on the edges. There was one spot on c/d trail that one side of the trail was a washout headed toward the railbed just past the Stinson Damn area.

We just slowed down and used caution, the rail beds and most trails were still in good shape.

I'm heading March 28 to make my solo trip  and close a season I'm planning to start from Sudbury heading to Timmins - Iroquois falls - Kirkland lake - Gagama- Sudbury. Keep my fingers crossed.

Do you have a sat phone or a spot device? You will be in areas with no cell service and as much as 75km or more from any civilization.

Just make sure you break down in a parking lot near civilization.... no problem then !!  JK !! 

 

Poor cell service in the North is a way of life. I find my Roger's phone gets much better signal than the Bell.  It piggybacks on the Bell and Tbaytel towers, giving me the best signal I've ever seen. Every time we stopped for a break riding to Longlac, I was getting emails and Facebook messages. Very impressed.

Was headed to Cochrane area March 28, was thinking about dropping in New Liskeard and riding up but not too sure on that now as the weather report is showing plus 8 for Thursday, really hoping the forecast changes and it stays cool a little while longer so I can get this last ride in!!.

Dialcom in Barrie also rents out satphones. Think its 2.50 a minute and a nominal fee for renting it.

Yesterday rode Windy Lake to Espanola and down towards Whitefish and back to Windy. The trails went from green to yellow as we arrived in Sudbury. The conditions were corn snow and the odd patch of dirt showing thru but very rideable. Today rode Windy Lake to Hanmer and back. The trails were yellow this morning, conditions were corn snow ungroomed but very rideable. Bumpy within 2kms of Cartier but holding up well. Looks like maybe a few more good days riding. Get out and ride, it won’t last forever!

Rode the wolf loop Today, 9 outta 10.

Lake was fast in the am but standing water in the afternoon made it interesting.

Ride while you can, trails will start closing Monday.
