Enjoy Your Mini-Loops!Stay Healthy and Sane This Winter: Enjoy Your Mini-Loops!
by John Boals
We've all been there, sitting around the house, in front of the TV and thinking about all of the great things that we could be doing. The hours go by. "A snowmobile ride might be nice," you think to yourself, but your riding buddies are busy this weekend. This is a situation that calls for mini-loops.
Or, maybe you're at the office coming up with all sorts of creative excuses for why you'll need to leave work early today, your sanity slowly draining away from too many hours staring at a computer screen ... but then, just going to a movie or something doesn't seem like enough. This is a situation that calls for mini-loops.
You've been planning a vacation for weeks. You want to go snowmobiling, but your spouse would rather see the sights, do some shopping and spend hours enjoying a fine meal at a nice restaurant. Or maybe you're worried that the kids won't be able to last for an entire day of sledding. This is a situation that calls for mini-loops.
Newly-developed for this year, OFSC District 1 has come up with solutions to all of your problems. Well, okay, maybe not all of them. But if the thought of bringing two kids along with you on a snowmobile loop several hundred kilometres long seems a bit daunting, or you're on an otherwise limited time budget, we just may have the answer for you.
Our "Mini-Loops", 11 of them to choose from, are designed with specific needs in mind: they're about 130-160 km each, will take you around 3 hours or so to do each one, and each has been routed specifically so that you're always in easy range of fuel, food, heated washrooms, scenic vistas and clearly-mapped trails. They're relatively short, manageable rides, so you can do them alone, or fit them in-between other activities ... say, for example, you could do one in the afternoon and be home in time for dinner, and get closer to the sort of family life balance that so many of us struggle with.
This season, have a blast out on the trails, without having to sacrifice your peace of mind. These are local trails groomed by local riders, officially District 1-approved. Come and be part of a winter community!
