Only one snowstorm, Then, the government was shut down for a month. No job meant almost no riding. Suddenly, I was back at work, a cold snap put us into the single digits (8 F /-12 C), and the snow arrived. The studs finally went silent and the ride was soft and dreamlike. After I returned home from work, we watched the Washington Capitols win.. It's a real winter after all.

ordered an accessory extension (for the light & sportcam) cuz the barmitts cover up a lot of the bars

oh I remember this thread. this past winter I changed my winter bike from a hybrid to a mountain bike. also kinda weird I didn't use my road bike at all despite there being very little snow. I think because I wanted to play with the new (pre-owned) MTB

great off road with just a little snow

packed snow was the easiest to ride over

rutted snow & ice was fine

but these conditions were tough, kept breaking thru after rolling for a bit, that trail, that day, was better on XC skis
