It's time. Time for the first Fiver of 2015. We are kicking off the season with long time Toonie sponsor and supporter North Shore Bike Shop.

As you can see from the map we're on Seymour and staging will be taking place at Parkgate Park. We have used this location twice in 2014 and it's proven to be a great spot. There is limited parking in the area, please carpool if you can, ride from home, or park dispersed around the neighbourhood.

Sign in will run from 5:45pm to 6:45pm. There is no fixed start time, you can start out onto the course once you have signed in.

Remember you MUST be a current paid NSMBA member to participate.

Raw footage is the signature. I just wanted to show this section of the trail so you can consider it for your loops. They've done some good work...

As of today, this is likely the best option for those who are starving to get out on their bike. Very little ice, no snow. Just watch out for bridges and shaded corners.

Nicely packed snow. Rode all the way up to Baden Powell with no problems.
