Let this be a strong, appreciative and responsible thread about everything-the forest city style Whip . Because London is a SWEET place to ride!

Hey all, it's been a while since I've been in the forest city, but due to circumstances, I'm coming back, so question, how's the riding scene out there? What trails are "accessible" and what ones can we actually use? Anyone need help building, etc.

Thanks guys, looking forward to seeing some of you out on the trails or around

There is on behind the hockey rink on fanshawe college boulevard (formerly second st.) and its small, not really bike friendly, and there is always dirty skater kids there who cant do a kickflip. the one off adelaid is bigger and much better for bikes.

Ahh...little old, but ok. Yes, Fanshawe is a great 18km trail. I just went Sat. with a friend for the second time this season. We biked from the Westmount Region to Fanshawe, and back. Except for the last time since we were lazy and tired. But it rained 10 mins after. So we were pretty lucky there. Anyways, Fanshawe has a great trail, especially for me, crappy bike, crappy riding. But I like to explore different trails. It's really nice because in some parts it's completely calm then all of a sudden you're racing up hill trying to get around those rocks. But don't look down because there are some close ledges that have atleast a 40 foot drop into the stinky lake. IMO it's a great ride. Going clockwise around the lake is the best. But for a tougher experience, go on a counter-clockwise day. It's only $5 to get in. But there's back way were you may just ride in. They really never check your ticket, and if they do, it's only a $90 fine. Great views and awesome in the fall!

I'm looking forward to discover new trails.

Has anyone been to the dirt jumps recently? Haven't been able to get there since before the summer due to traveling and work. What kind of state are they at? Does anyone know if John got his own house and building his own trails?

Yeah I wish... I live beside Masonville. Maybe one of those farmers will give us a section of unusable land and a back hoe too! Ohh in a perfect world.

I emailed the mayor today asking why there has been no progress between her office and parks and rec in getting the mountain bike/dirtjump riders a small track to make some jumps on. There is a ton of green space on Adelaide St. N near the Water Works.

They stopped updating me in June of 2006 and I told them it was completely unacceptable. Takes five minutes to email your mayor and tell her you want somewhere to ride your dirt jump bike.

ADeCicco@london.ca is her email address. Please use a sense of proper grammar and spelling when speaking to your mayor so you don't look like an idiot.
