Algonquin Park – Minnesing Trail

Darcy Mountain Biking Leave a Comment

Minnesing Trail. Lots of good but exhausting memories. Found in Algonquin Park, Minnesing Trail is a moderately difficult one way trail that was created for mountain bikes. It starts off fairly easily and then ramps up. Fear not, if you realize that you may be in over your head from an endurance point of view, you can tap out by taking one of the smaller loops so you can exit to freedom. Read on to find out more about one of my favourite mountain biking trails.

Muddy as all can be

It was my first experience with downhill mountain biking and Mont-Sainte-Anne was not very nice to me. To say that it was pleasant would be a lie. I went on the opening weekend (for the mountain biking season) which was June 1st and you think that the weather would have been fantastic right? Well how does 10c (50F) with driving winds and rain sound to you?

Ottawa to Kingston – Road

There are a dozen ways to get from Ottawa to Kingston on a road bike and they all take you through small picturesque towns. Not a particularly tough trip is you go in a group of bikers where one can draft off your fellow riders, talk to them and speed along on your feather light road bike with your ultra thin tires. A different story when you are a steel framed mountain bike with knobby tires.
