    Not much snow in Caledon. But different conditions north of hwy 9.
    Had a super ride today.
    Temp was -3C and the trails wre nicely packed. The downhills were a little slippery but the uphills were surprisingly grippy

    How do you wash your bike after a snowy ride without the benefit of a driveway, flipflops and nice warm sun? :/

    Yes, oddly the trail bike is cleanest in the winter!

    Cyclonic Dustbuster setup in blower mode with the hose/brush attachment works great for blowing the snow and slush off and semi-drying it at the same time. Followed by an hour or so near the wood stove makes it all good...for me and the bike!
