    With all the rain that has come pouring down here in Ancaster, i suspect that i won't be riding any trails again until they are frozen,... which might not be too long from now.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Maybe I am crazy but I just love riding in the rain, it's been pouring all day here in mississauga , it was a wet commute this morning and even wetter this afternoon,
    I purpously rode and splashed through every big puddle of water I could find. Bike is getting lubed for sure later tonight after it's dry.

    There definitely is a point where you give up on trying to stay dry, and then suddenly nothing is sacred and every puddle is begging for a depth test.

    Thank you zedfoto, that is the right winter spirit. I am sooooo ready to carve up some slopes.

    But there is a bit of mountain biking left. This weekend will be cold and the trails will be frozen. I am going to milk it for all it's worth at Albion.

    You really think the ground is frozen? It hasn't been cold enough and the moisture the past few days certainly won't make them solid enough to ride. We need some sustained sub-zero temps to get er' frozen. Not trying to preach, I just recall Albion took some abuse last fall with the wet weather...

    A bad day on the bike is better than a good day doing anything else...

    We're getting 15 cm toady in Ottawa, in addition to what came down yesterday.

    Maybe this XC ski season won't be the bust we had last year.

    One of my co-workers took the day off to go to Tremblant, today.

    I'll be tuning up all the skis, XC and DH, this weekend.

    Now, if only it will snow 5 inches on New Years Day in Toronto. Then we get our vacation free, and they'll have to recall the army from Afganistan.

    mtbmeister: You really think the ground is frozen?

    I understand your concerns, but the ground should definitely be frozen solid - at least on Saturday. Looking at the weather, Thursday and Friday overnight temps will drop to -10C. Saturday morning it will be -7C. There should be no problem.

    1mystk: see you there...

    Hope to see you there too. That fluffy rose should be visible from Bolton.

    On Sunday, Nov 18 we were racing. But there was just a tad less snow where we were.

    I miss the days when racing was for your own personal satisfaction.

    Back on the trainer I go...

    Same goes for you 'mr. transrockies' la di da.. i expect you to 365 your way to some top end ocup finishes next year.

    Top of Sun Bowl on Whistler. Day after opening day, the alpine was open for hiking.

    It was like a day of heli skiing. Untouched alpine for anyone willing to sweat out a hike/skin as the upper lifts are still closed.

    Nice! I am not into hiking for my turns, but I cannot help but feel green with envy when I see that. Our local hill might open on November 30. But we are talking about 500 foot vertical - not much more than the distance you covered in that pic.

    Hardwood is officially open (!!!) for skiing with 15km open with "older" (ie. rock) skis recommended.

    I won't be making the trip until all the trails are open but this is a good start.

    Besides, I rode Wednesday night, last night and just got in from my lunch ride.
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.
