Quick ride in the park today...

Up the street to the park, then Rembrandt's Brush - Lonely Rock - PA4J - Salamander - Droopy Muffin - Voldemort - Quartzite - Crusher Rd. - Sisyphus - Watkins Wood - Sore Elbow back to Rembrandt's Brush and back down the street to my house.

It was like riding on a brisk day in November. It's the middle of January and other than a few ice patches the trails are bone dry. WTF?

Not complaining too much though; spike hiking, fat biking, and skating are all fun. Tomorrow it's skinning up Pico for some fresh snow.

Sounds like you got it down. MT bikes are so much fun.  You need to get Joe on one. He would love it if he just got out and saw the similarity to Hiking. When we ride its so much like when we were kids in the woods.

I was talking to Joe about fat bikes the other day. I told him he'd love it. You can ride over just about anything with confidence and they're geared so low you can practically come to a full stop and just keep peddling.

I sure hope we get some snow with this next storm system. The ski areas really need it. Everywhere needs some snow. I'm glad I'm not a snowmobile nut. Must suck having a $10,000 - $16,000 toy sitting around with nowhere to use it. [icon_banghead]

Peddle on.

Goal for 2017: Get Joe on a mountain bike!

I took him once to the Hinesburg town forest. He seemed to like it. I think the spandex shorts scare him.

I just picked up my Dynastar Cham107's re-mounted with 22 designs Axles. All tuned a ready for some snow. I heard RT to salt lake was like 300 bucks, very tempting. I wonder if the Rocky Mountain still has that house for rent?

He mentioned Hinesburg when I was talking about fat bikes. He also mentioned seeing crashes that didn't look like any fun at all. But fat bikes aren't about speed, they're about tooling through the woods on a bicycle.

All we got for snow in Rutland was enough to barely hide the grass. What a rip. [icon_angryfire]

Don't count on me riding much in the woods. Thanks for thinking of me, but I already golf, and ride my MC, not to mention, I get super busy with work during the riding season. You can only do so much. I do plan on checking out Tom's neck of the woods, for the heck of it.

Ride On! @ 80 mph that is.

I've been thinking about setting up some tires with GripStuds for winter riding. Of course, I won't be doing front wheelies or riding over big rocks and high stumps. [crazy]

Yea I like to test my traction too but not over a drop. Why risk hurting your self?  My neighbor had a rotor cuff fixed. 6 months of inactivity.  You could so easily injure something riding like that. I love riding on a log on the ground. Rocks too. I will risk a fall over on to flat ground not in to a hole. 9.8m/s/s is hard to escape. I fell over once down into a drop. Three ice bags were needed.
