    We have a friend who just got a Zero and rode with us last weekend. We took turns on it for a spin on the ice. I agree it was a hoot!

    I really need to stud some tires. Riding around on this reservoir was very cool, but I had to go slow without the studs.

    Out and about on the Bering Sea

    Minus 5F with 10-12mph winds today. Comfortable enough that I managed to take a few photos. Unlike yesterday, when I was out riding in a ground storm (minus 3F/35 mph winds) and froze (not literally, but almost) my fingers after taking my gloves off for three minutes to adjust my goggles and balaclava. Hoped to get some shots of local fishers harvesting king crab through the ice, but did not find anyone pulling pots. Maybe tomorrow. My favorite part of winter is here: Longer days and packed trails could make for good riding through April.

    Part of an E-mail I sent a buddy after a ride at Puslinch on the 3rd.....

    Today was my sufferfest; hooked up with a faster guy (a brit) who was brave too. He took me through the sketchiest singletrack in the place on regular tires. I wouldn’t have ridden it myself because of not trusting my tires’ studs on rock.

    They actually worked really well, and were especially good on the roots.

    Surprisingly I was out-climbing the guy more than a few times on the tech stuff, but paid for that cardio-wise everywhere else as I was struggling with the pace the guy was pushing.

    I thanked him for beating on me.

    Good times!

    Pretty awesome start to the weekend. Now time to thaw out with beer and clam chowder.









    First time on the geared bike in a while. Was actually pretty nice to be able to drop a gear or two in the snow.

    We got 30cm/ 12inches of fresh podwer snow in Caledon Ontario. The snow was too deep for ice biking so we went down hilling instead!

    Short, slow, and slippery, but the best ride I've had in a while.

    Just got out yesterday on my F9 to ride up my steep driveway that had been completely freed from the snow, as it was 46 degrees on Friday.

    Ice biking today



    4 riders exploring the frozen river


    some slushy places


    some open areas, stayed closer to shore


    but mostly it was solid


    we stopped to build a fire


    and roast some marinated mushrooms


    late in the day


    heading back out again


    thank goodness wasps are dormant in winter


    another busy beaver


    Posing by the bridge foundation graffiti


    great day! 4 hour ride!


    Awesome day

    Just some riding around the city trails at night. Also found a walked path to and over a snowy roof/ledge of one the local university buildings. That was some bizzarre riding I'd never come across before.

    Psychic cleansing today.

    My jobs brings me into contact with people from all walks of life, and sometimes a little R&R is needed to set things right. In my duties I am sometimes working alongside people for hours on end. My employer purposely uses my freindly demeanour and skillset for orientation and training from time to time.

    This is tiring stuff but not because of the training.

    Without going into details I can say that more than a few individuals I've interacted with have less than stellar pasts. Beleive me, I've heard many a life story over the past few months especially, and much of what I've been privy to isn't very pretty.

    I really needed to ride today and let the trails wash all this stuff from my mind.

    As a plus, my boss thanked me profusely on Friday for my service and told me she'd be giving me a break from this stuff for a good while.

    She has no idea......

    Getting hit with a hefty storm here in Cheyenne, WY. My boyfriend and I decided to go out on the bikes and goof off in one of the large parks here. Ended up putting down over 6 miles, and I literally had one of the funnest days every on my bike! Mostly just a few inches deep, but there were lots of drifts well over a foot. 23 degrees, 22mph winds... no excuses not to ride here!

    2013 winter riding thread-557902_10152576830515442_639382400_n.jpg

    We were having too much fun to take a lot of photos. We found a long set of stairs on a walking path I wish I had a photo of me coming down... just because I am sure I looked ridiculous in my clunky snow boots getting all serious on the bike!

    Hi. New here. First post.

    I'm a mountaineer, do Colorado 14ers in winter. I ride every day I'm not on a peak, all year 'round. A little different this winter, I used the bike to help gain about 1/3 of the distance on 2 winter 14ers this season. Here's a shot from Mt. Lindsey, January 9, 2013. I was able to ride about 7 of the 22 miles round trip.


    Edit:
    Well... quite a welcome by the administrators of this site, I must say. I'm afraid, dear friends, that I can't share my photography with you, nor even a link to my trip report on 14ers.com.

    If any of you is terribly motivated to see this, go to 14ers.com (will they let me post this website address?) and click on trip reports. Click on author = dancesatmoonrise. Then look for the Mt. Lindsey TR of 1-9-13.

    The 14ers.com site is quite liberal, user friendly, and the administrator is constantly making excellent improvements.

    I hope you enjoy seeing a 29er workhorse used to help gain a Colorado 14er in winter.


    Jim

    PS - I vote that the admin here changes the 10-post rule.

    So as you can imagine, it would appear the administrators want new members to do a lot of posts.

    So as soon as I get ten posts here, I'll post a nice photo - assuming the site will accept 1000 or 1200 pixels.

    Well... quite a welcome by the administrators of this site, I must say. I'm afraid, dear friends, that I can't share my photography with you, nor even a link to my trip report on 14ers.com.

    If any of you is terribly motivated to see this, go to 14ers.com (will they let me post this website address?) and click on trip reports. Click on author = dancesatmoonrise. Then look for the Mt. Lindsey TR of 1-9-13.

    The 14ers.com site is quite liberal, user friendly, and the administrator is constantly making excellent improvements.

    I hope you enjoy seeing a 29er workhorse used to help gain a Colorado 14er in winter.

    OK, some photos. Hope you enjoy them.

    Mt. Lindsey, winter 2013. The bike helped with 7 of the 22 miles. Doesn't sound like a lot, but slogging on snowshoes by headlamp after a 13-hour day, it's a real joy to see the bike waiting and ready to ride down to the car. It cut about 2 hours off a long winter's day.





    Dawn.





    The road swings to southern exposure and drys out - perfect for bike travel.





    Gaining the alpine after changing out to snowshoes. There was a ski track to follow up to this point.





    Nearby Mt. Blanca





    Mt. Lindsey summit, 14,042.





    Back to the car by headlamp.

    Hope you enjoyed the photos!
