    I think that someone must have pulled their kids through on a sled or something when the snow was fresh because there was a clearly packed area about sled width through a lot of the trail. A lot of the trail was fairly packed down snow or ice where the snow had blown around. There were a few miles of 8-10" depth in some spots, but most of it was pretty nice.

    actually i like it when the trail gets packed down and goes through a couple of freeze thaw cycles. turns into a nice ice surface, though studded tires are a must...

    The weather has been mild and today it's rainy. Trails are currently a mix of ice and pudding

    But the long term forecast promises a drop in temperatures which is more seasonal and will harden the trails.

    A few of my favorite things: bike, trail, dog, mountains. I feel happy when I look at this pic

    Temp is dropping here in southern Ontario. Trails will be rideable again soon

    Did a nice ride yesterday in the warm 10C temperatures.
    The trails were melting a lot, but a fun ride nonetheless.

    I was able to get out for a short lunch ride today. The windchill was around 5.

    First pic is making some fresh tracks. The second shot is the little guy that kept me from getting any water out of the bottle.

    Great photo moshjack! Thanks.

    I keep trying to talk myself into getting out and riding but it's been really cold here for the past 3-4 days. High yesterday was 8 F.... low this morning -20 something.

    I'm usually pretty game to ride out there all winter and I've ridden in temps below zero before.... but that just sounds deadly. Maybe I'm becoming a wuss in my old age.

    Been riding the trainer the past few days. If I get out there this week I'll post up a picture.

    So it warmed up quite a bit today so I decided I'd venture out for a ride.
    Only -6F this morning.

    Ha ha. Yeah I've given up even taking water on my short early morning rides. No sense carrying a block of ice on my back that I can't even suck any water out of. It makes my pack quite a bit lighter too.

    Wow. A lot of nice pictures with some weird white stuff on the ground and lakes that somehow became hard enough to ride on. Here in Northern AZ the winter has been harsh, and you have to get motivated to go ride in the crappy weather...

    What a difference a day makes. You can see the tracks in the ground from the previous day when it was 55 degrees. Picture taken at 12 degrees with flurries. The mud is completely frozen.

    Sorry for the repeat. Posted this elsewhere as well. It was from this afternoon.

    Literally 20 seconds out my front door and out onto the frozen shores of Lake Huron.

    Seemed epic. I was alone for a while................it was awesome.

    How wide are the tires on the Mukluk? As wide as on a Surly Pug? -- in the photo, they look a little narrower.

    Had a good ride out today in sub-zero temps, took more photos than managed to ride but it was some good fun and I'm glad I made the effort as my tracks were the only ones up there, had to turn around when I could stand my bike in the snow though!

    Just got a (used) steel, rigid, 29er SS the other day and took it out to ride Wissahickon trails in the fresh powdery snow we got last night and ended up riding for about 2 hours. The bike was a ****ing blast. This is only my second ride on it and I was thrilled. My other bike was a Giant XTC 29er alloy hardtail 3x9 so... what a difference in balance and technique. I did much better this time out -- I kept my knees bent out of the saddle while descending to take some strain off my back, and stood to pedal up hills... 'always be pedalin,' so found climbing to go much smoother, especially on the rocky technical climbs at Wiss. Spinning out like a mad man on flats is definitely a new experience as I was a bit of a masher.

    Running 2.3 exiwolfs and they railed in the snow... I don't think I really slipped unexpectedly at all while cornering, braking was stable and strong and only a few spins on rocks when climbing (my fault). psyched about that.

    So happy the snow was still there. So happy it was powdery goodness and not slush.

    What a blast.

    no photos because my phone died. but it was beautiful ; ) haha

    I just finished a magical ride. I live in Atlanta and winter riding for us usually means waiting until it warms up to 45 degF before heading out. So I started my ride at Chicopee Woods at about 1PM. Right around 3:00, I was rounding a corner and came to a dead stop. Suddenly, out of nowhere, it was snowing. Big, fat, surprisingly dry flakes were falling through the trees in great abundance.

    There was no warning...it didn't start as rain or start flurrying. It was like someone flipped the "snow" switch and down it came. I stopped and just enjoyed the rare sight of snow in Georgia. As other riders approached behind me, they all stopped and just watched and smiled. Without a word, we all mounted back up and finished the ride. The "blizzard" lasted about 20 minutes.

    As I was putting my bike on the car, one of the guys who stopped with me said "That was pretty cool, wasn't it?" I agreed...but I'm ready for spring. 43 degrees?? Brrrrr!

    We did a ride down to the river today. Conditions were a little different compared to last weekend's ride.

    Riding down ...check out all the animal paw prints!


    That's the river below, in the background


    Made it!




    The ice was still thick and solid
