Well, it took a bit to get into any groove today, so I just had to laugh and enjoy my surroundings. How can you not have fun out in the woods playing in the snow?

if a crazy cyclist screams in the woods, does anyone hear him?
how's the derailleur?
I can see why those trails would be torture, but that's not your fatest tire bike. in hindsight would you have used another bike?
I commend your perseverance & admire your sense of humor
love the multiple references to the movie Cool Hand Luke (from the comfort of my couch)
your videos show the reality of winter trail riding, not just the good flow, downhill stuff
stay safe, glad you didn't have to walk out

I know every now and then I run into hikers who have heard the screams. Maybe the fat bike could have been a tad better for the conditions, but still would lose traction on most hills. Perseverance might be more like old age and not knowing any better (lol). I hope I keep it real and don't mind if people get a laugh from my knuckleness, because I'm not afraid to laugh at myself. Glad I didn't have to walk out either.
