Let me know next time you are down here and have a few hours to kill. The main trail system is about 15 miles from the airport. I can probably find a bike for you.
I don't get much further West than Prescott these days, parents have a place in Payson, but maybe. Planning to be back down in AZ in beginning of October.

Season opener for me (first skinny ride of the year on my 'real bike'). There's a spot about 30 minutes away that's all on Canadian Shield. It's a short loop (3km), but it usually dries out before anywhere else. Normally we'd do at least two laps in each direction, but last night was a social ride so we only did it once each way...:

I have no idea where I am
Rode out to an OG spot on the Greenway which has been over crowded with groups of meandering mouth-breathers since the lock down started. Decided to wait until 6:30 Sunday evening to leave hoping the 6 miles of pavement would be less crowded. Nope, not really.

Took my lights and wore a bandana like a houdlum the whole time on the Greenway. Almost no one wore a mask or gave a shit about six feet. Once in the woods I thought I'd be safe to drop the bandana and enjoy myself for a bit. Nope. Saw some random dude, off trail, walking around drinking something from a can and possibly smoking a cigarette. Twenty minutes or so later I was cruising down a fast line, came around a tree and there was roadie in my way. A roadie ! And he wanted to come closer and talk.

Found a suitable shed spot and chilled until it started to get dark. Then turned around and rode that section backwards to minimize contact on the dirt road. And to no surprise, there was no one else out there after dark.

Is Kanata ridebruh? Must melt fast there?
I have avoided it. It is a pretty popular spot, and I don't really want to get close to people at the moment! It's also pretty much surrounded by residential developments now, so the increase in foot traffic and dog walkers is pretty phenomenal. Usually, it is the third spot to be rid of snow (after Carp, and the south-facing ridge of Gatineau Park).

there you go!

Always wanted a Sovereign. After trying a long it was clear it was too small. When I look at pics of my old Chameleon SS and see the distancing length seatpost, I wonder how I was able to ride it.

yeah, and these are the long. Would imagine it would be tiny for you.

Bixi setting up today. Planned opening April 15. Friendly workers asked the little guy if he'd like to help. He said no. :)
We watched for a while. They weren't keeping 2m between them. At times <1m talking to each other.

I've bad experiences with Toronto's bixi rentals haha.

Actually didn't think about those....I'm guessing they're all locked up now and unable to be released?
