    Winter riding at night is so boss. Sometimes we turn off our lights and ride by moonlight.

    Just started riding seriously for the first time in a lot of years. Hooked up with an old buddy who is determined to keep me riding through the New England winter. I bought my first pair of cycling pants and winter gloves and now I'm looking for a set of 29" studded tires. Went for a night ride last week, and although there was no snow, it was 29 degrees when we finished up our 2.5 hour ride. I was dressed right and stayed pretty warm throughout. I'm really looking forward to biking all year round!

    I had a fun riding season this summer in the SW and in the NW. But I am happy it's raining and I can go back to the trail system I love in the winter up here. Finally made it up last week and was so happy it was wet.

    Funny how the seasons are reversed down here. I'll be cramming in as much riding as I possibly can between now and March/early April while it's still tolerable to be outside, much less outside and exerting oneself.

    Not my video, but I could probably ride this trail with my eyes closed. One of my favorites.

    The girl on the right is Chelsea. She's my inspiration for building over 20km of trails there. She has FASD, comes from a very dysfunctional family and has just pushed her bike through a stream and up about 1.5km of logging road. Look at that smile!

    It looked promising this morning but it all melted before I could get out.
    I think I'm too close to the lake.
    Maybe tomorrow.

    yea...it was 73 in west AR today. I think it's been down around freezing a couple of nights. The leaves have changed and fallen but weeds and some grasses are still growing. It'll be mid January before we have a chance of snow.

    We did an urban ride last evening. It was blustery! The wind was between 40 and 52 km/hr and drifting snow.I could really feel the bike pushing sideways.

    We had to be careful because the roads were slippery (we didnt have the studded tires on yet,) lights mounted and I wore my windstopper jacket and pants

    We were out for 1,5 hours but it felt like 3 hours! Got to see some interesting home decked out with lights. The wind was so strong that some of the blowup decorations got knocked over,

    was a brutal ride in the wind, had to find an alternative route on the way back.
