       DOWNTOWN NORDIC Strava Clubs Test Segments

Well, that promise of snow was a bust.   It looks like we will be waiting for a while longer for snow to ski on.    To try to alleviate our impatience to get out skiing we'll create some test segments with other sports.  Most of us participate in other fitness activities, especially in the off season.   

Please note that after this ALL SEGMENTS will be posted to the blog and facebook page only.

You will not receive an email to describe the segment nor will any results be announced in any place except the blog and facebook page. 

For the blog:

For the Facebook page:

You must be a member of the facebook group to join, the joining process is very simple.   A couple of questions then administrator approval.

Please direct ALL Strava enquiries or comments to Gord at firedudecndn  @   

We were going to have the segment be on the La Salle River because it was skiable but after the rain we don't know its condition. For this segment choose any activity you like.  Walk, run, bike, ballroom dance...

 For simplicity, easy access for participants and testing purposes the segment will be:

  •  along the Harte trail heading WEST starting at the trail intersection just west of Shaftsbury Boulevard for approximately 1.1 kms terminating at the Aspen trail.  West bound only.  Link below:


Please respect other trail users and remember that all Strava Club correspondence should go to Gord at firedudecndn@

Have fun :)
