About This Club

Regional group for meet ups, rides, route sharing and trip planning.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Interesting events, odds are pretty good this type of event can take place within a pandemic. I will do some further reading, keep us up to date with any big news. Cheers
  3. I might be interested if I’m around, need to get my fat as in shape and loose a few lbs.
  4. Registration is now open for this years Rock Hound Rally. More information can be found on the Rally Connex website here. I've decided to throw my T7 into the gauntlet and give the bronze class a shot. Let me know if you are thinking of coming out. I know the area quite well and will be riding in and around the Cloyne area most of the summer in preparation for this - even if you just want to come out and see what the riding is like let me know and we will set something up. This video is of the Gold Class, so take that with a grain of salt. I am also signing up for this years Dacre Rally, if anyone out there is interested in pairing up for a day of abuse you know where to find me. Take care, Ehren
  5. Merrill Lake Fellow forum member @rino joined me recently for a true test of the bikes offroad capabilities. Long story short, my crash bars got a solid workout and will need a trip to the vise to get sorted out. The trail into the beach on the east side of the lake is a doosie. A few boggy areas, with lots of loose hill scrambles and tight areas. I would not venture down there during the wet season, I do not think you'd be making it out. If you are looking to get your feet wet slamming and banging around your Tenere, this is the spot. Access can be gained from either the Hwy 62 or 41 corridors. From Hwy 41 the route looks like this and takes you down Hughes Landing road towards the hydro cut, where you begin heading north towards Merrill. Alternatively you can take the Hydro cut directly from Hwy 41 to this point, beginning at Massanoga, and old ghost town dating from the 30's. From Hwy 62, the route looks like this and links up with the Hydro Line at the same point as coming from Hughes Landing Road. [I will edit this part once I get my hands on a more detailed map.] Once you reach the final ping from either direction, you should be able to head north towards Killdeer Camp, located on google maps. At the point you reach the camp, there will be two trails heading off to the right. The first right takes you down into the Merrill Lake beach site. The second right takes you 50m in to their camp and ends. There you will find an excellent Trout lake, and some beauty sites.
  6. Found a good series of trails this week. E-107 running from Apsley cuts through this area on towards Havelock. There are a couple nice routes in here, with some challenging terrain and lots of exposed rock and elevation changes. The staging area is located here, and if you are biking in be sure to route yourself in along Northeys Bay Road, as it is one of the curvier roads in the area. From the staging area you head north about 400m and reach the Hydro line which has a bunch of locations and distances marked on signs. You can head east and pop out at Twin Lakes along Highway 46. You can head north which takes you into Little Jack Lake, which has a nice waterfall and site. From there you can either dip out to the fire routes encircling Jack Lake and escape out towards Hwy 504, or continue on towards Apsley/Hwy 28. The latter trail is the only one I haven't checked out yet, but based on the trail in to that point it is probably well traveled enough to be doable.
