The calm before the storm !

It's about time we get a real winter storm this year, because we are well behind our average of snow this year. So, it's half day Friday and I want to get one more good ride on what has been near perfect trail conditions the last three weeks. Decided to do a heavy climbing route to add to the fun and played out in the woods for almost three and a half hours. The legs took a beating, and I enjoyed every bit of the pain. This has been a great month of riding and hoping the new snow will continue to add to the fun Oh Ya we are in the 18-28" snowfall range.

I'm sure hoping after this storm the snowmobiles get out there and we get more freezing temps because these conditions are perfect. You need to join me out in this playground, I always have an extra studded bike waiting to go and you can use the fat bike.

I remember, thank you, I often think of that option! I barely know when I can get a ride in myself, much less coordinate w/ someone else. but we've done it before, so it's still a possibility, thanks for the renewed offer!
