Fun way to start the year off !

Ended January with 261 miles of riding out in the woods. We have had a very below average snow total so far this year, but been dealing with plenty of ice. The studded tires were a great add-on for this season, and looking forward to a fun filled February.

It was a little better, but today was super wet with all the melting.
