Conc. 8 Through Mooresburg

I just heard that Conc. 8, the road that runs north/south through Mooresburg, is being paved after all. Work started today.
Originally the township had said the road would revert to gravel. They wanted drivers to use county road 3 instead. But they were pressured by residents to pave the road again.

This opens up quite a few bike route possibilities for us.




Alpe de Zwift

The developers and artists at Zwift have created a new route, Alpe de Zwift. They imported GPS data from Alpe d’Huez. Their ride starts at sea level in the jungle of Watopia, but quickly climbs up above the snow line. The scenery may not match the real thing, but the road has the same 21 switchbacks and the same profile.

How it was made

One of the first to ride it.

You have to be a Level 12 Zwifter to ride it, unless you join a group ride that’s going.



Grey county is paving Grey Rd 17 from Highway 6 to Wolesley

Grey County is paving Grey Rd 17 from Highway 6 to Wolesley this year.
The “new” road will have the standard 3.5 meters of travel way and 1.25 meters of paved shoulder where the 1.3 meters of gravel used to be.

For a week or two there will be detours using concession 21.

And, moving forward most Grey County roads will have paved shoulders when they are reconstructed.
