Yesterday a few of the Black Fly's embarked on the "new" L2L course. We were all quite used to the previous 50km course across the Niagara Peninsula with the mix of road, gravel and singletrack so we weren't sure what to expect this year.
This new course had some sections of the old L2L course as well as parts of the Squeezer, albeit in a backwards direction. The bottom of Hydro Hill was our start, which they made us climb twice.
The starting point was at Brock and the finish was only 15 minutes drive away. This was a great bonus for the drivers as they didn't have to spend an extra 1/2 hr in the car.
It ended up being a great MTB course with plenty of great singletrack riding. Hopefully they will run it again next year because if they do, I'm sure we'll be there again.
