    Devils'Gap Trail to Torrance Barrens [o]

    ...is my favourite winter ride. Just a great mix of rolling hills, gentle grades,and meandering flats, all surrounded by birch, oak, white pine, and numerous small lakes. Gorgeous!

    Great pics! Wish I had my bike (due Tuesday) and snow to play in. I'm starting to think in beach mode already.

    Cool! I hear it was a great course and I'm regretting missing it now. Unfortunately weekends are short with much to do and I rarely get out on both days now. I was installing a new battery in my wife's car about the time you guys were riding in Kearney!
    Good ride today however at 3 1/2 hrs.

    Great pictures. Are those OFSC trails? I see some bikes running Nates and others Larry and Endo's. How much advantage do the Nates have in those conditions?

    these are multi-use trails but the clubs also use them. Some sections they groom, others it's just what the sleds themselves do. Very little sled traffic along this section actually. On this 3.5 hr ride we saw maybe a dozen, of which one group alone = six.

    John loves the Nates over the others In these conditions I don't see a huge benefit though! I'm still running Endos front & rear on my 2005 Pugs and I can climb anything the others can, ie traction wise. John does have an advantage in that he is very fit! He says the Nates corner much better in sketchy conditions, I certainly believe that!

    Cheers,

    Smile Fatbike potential rider

    Near North is a great single-track rider who always had the trials sort of balance we all dream of. It has been while since I have ridden with him but if my memory serves me correctly Mark always rode on the fattest tires out there. Maybe he is a Pugsley rider in disguise! If we choose snowshoeing or fat biking at least we are all out there having fun. Also since he is a runner I suspect Mark would kick my butt on snowshoes. That said I know Mark would get hooked on his first snow ride! :
    SOMETIMES SLOWER CAN BE BETTER
