Back by popular demand!
There are a lot of new and incredible MTB trails in Guelph! Fast and flowy at Guelph lake and technical and demanding at Arkell Spring Grounds – we are super lucky to have such diverse options at our doorstep.
We are also super lucky to have some incredible volunteers advocating, designing and building these trails. GCC’s Jim Brogden is one such force. He has led the development of the Arkell Spring Grounds with fellow GCC and GORBA club members. If you have moved as much dirt as Jim, you might be a bulldozer.
The Route has two halves. The Medium Route that uses most of the trails at Guelph Lake. After that you will head back to our sponsor Fixed Gear on Alma Rd. for refreshments and food.
For those choosing the longer ‘Big MTB’ route, a stop will be made for a water fill at Eastview Park. Then riders will head south to Arkell Spring Grounds through the trail entrance off of Watson road. After riding those trails, riders will head over to Fixed Gear for refreshments, food and meet up with their fellow riders.
Disclaimer: Depending on rider turn out, some Speed Groups may have to be combined.
