    I spent a few hours running from Hockley up to Terra Nova and beyond for the first time in at least 5 years. Lots of bridge work making it more difficult to connect the usual loops, me on the DR and my brother on his (my former) KLX. Saw a ton of bikes everywhere. For some reason my GPS didn't have any of my former tracks on it so I ran from vague memory and a paper map. I noticed a few barriers and gates up where they never were before....


    What a beauty day, did anybody else make it out?

    We (three of us) did the parallel routing east of Airport Road up to Creemore, through Glen Huron, to Blue Mountain, to the Osprey/Kolipoor Highlands, and back through the Beaver Valley. It was a superbe day. Enjoyed some new, some familiar, some unintended routes. I appreciate those workers who try to block a road with an excavator...just another degree of difficulty.

    Wow that sounds like a heck of a ride! How many kilometers roughly? We were just shy of 300 round trip and 5 hours on my stock DR seat is about all I could handle.

    I'm not sure on the total distance. I'm guessing a bit, we went through three tanks on the DRZ...but not completely. Maybe close to 400 km. I have a Seat Concepts on the 400...I can ride all day.

    (I'm not saying anymore about the excavator...it may have been a closed road).

    Rode through and around Terra Nova yesterday, put about 80kms of mostly gravel roads under foot. The fall colours will really be popping over the next week or two, maybe only 15% turned so far.

    Hey Yota-Tom, I'm currently putting together a route for that general area this weekend. Curious what road your second shot is on and where that third pic is? Also, awesome old DR, love those!

    @swdavis Thanks for the koodos!
    The second pic is on 4th line, between Mulmur-Nottawasaga Townline and County Rd 21, just east of Honeywood. In my opinion, running Southbound on that road has the much better sightlines as you look east. Also, continuing South on 4th line over CR21 continues some adventurous riding. Turn West onto 15 Sideroad for more fun riding and photo Ops.
    The third picture is on 1st line between County rd 21 and 30 Sideroad, also just east on Honeywood. Riding North or South makes little difference, good either direction. I was headed North for that shot.

    Looks like some amazing scenery, I haven't been that way for a few years. I'll bet you'd have a lot of interest in a casual dual sport ride in that area in the coming weeks. Sometimes it is nice to follow someone who knows the area.

    myself and a couple friends spent the last 2 glorious days riding the "Creemore Loop" and exploring the area' What a great area for riding.
