Dreaming of singletrack.

 Ok so here is the map that got me totally familiarized with Issaqueena.  It is a few years old but still pretty much up to date.  Works out to be a good 70+ km of singletrack that is a 25 minute drive or 60 minute ride from The Mansion.  It's actually funny, the map is so huge that I took a few snapshots of it with my camera then used the LCD display to zoom in and navigate while I rode.  Ghetto for sure.
One of my favourite places to ride :-)

Easy flowing singletrack with some fast ups and down and very fast clay surface.

I am really looking forward to taking a break from Ontario and riding my bike for a couple months!  The countdown is on, less than 8 weeks.  I'm sure I'll find some new adventure.  If you didn't catch it the first time, the Foothills Trail ride from Whitewater Falls to HWY 178 was my favourite ride of the year, and one of my favourites of all time.
Benno and Jerome's Epic Ride

Not much going on with the Anthem X-Ben.  Actually  it has remained untouched save for a ride on Christmas Day but all of my time has me elbows deep ripping apart the Pulsar.  Few more goodies still to come for that.  Very much looking forward to some twisty mountain roads with my girl after driving the old Civic all winter.

Hope you all had a good holiday, now back to reality ;-)
