    Smile Finishing off the Year Right [o]

    My fancy MTB had sat idle for far too long. I received a trail report from thedumbopinion that sounded good, so I put my bike in the truck and headed to Shorthills Provincial Park for a ride. Boy was I glad I did. I had an absolute blast. Trail 2 was pretty much perfect. Trail 1 was a little slower going, but rideable aside from the the big climbs. Here's a few pictures.

    My lovely ride


    Big Tree


    New Bridge


    Happy Trails


    A little elf tow built up on my Shimano winter shoes.

    I love these things. It's so nice to hike a bike up a hill, and not pack a layer of snow between neoprene booties and my toes.

    And a bonus shot of my truck playing in the snow after my ride.


    Have a happy new year everyone.

    Awesome photos! Looks like we own the same winter shoes too.

    I've only been able to get out on the snowshoes lately, snow around here is just too deep.

    Started the new year in similar fashion. This time I had some folks to chase around and tear my legs off.

    Love those Shimano MW80/1s. One of the best things I've bought for the bike. I got out today in Duffins Creek valley, though I've only got one shot to share....

    Trail report:

    Snow is hard packed and there is ice in spots.

    Wine by the fireplace must be consumed with caution

    Good start to 2013. I do miss my bike nonetheless.
