    I rode an easy six mile loop today because someone told my friends it was a good ride. Afterwards, I felt like I was cheated so on the way home, I stopped by the old reliable trail head and blew out an 11 mile ride.

    had a great two hours on the trail, thank you for the cool 65*F dry air. We've had so much warm rain it was a treat to get some trail time while winter was in town. Sat. was a Scott demo day and I rode their 5" Genius back-to-back w/ the 4.25" Spark. Both carbon beauties it was bike heaven, but I was concerned my bike would feel lame after that. Todays ride blew that worry away as I had a blast pushing myself to the limits, the bike always felt ready for more speed, tighter cornering, bigger air.

    No. It's starting to remind me of a couple years ago, when I canceled hikes due to sunshine and got the bike out all two times it didn't rain on my off days *from January until July*.
    Totally disgusted with the weather again, not to mention meteorologists, and they have me in crybaby mode(sorry!).
    Took my bike to work with me a few days ago, planning a long ride afterwards. Started raining on the way in, rained all night, then got worse in the morning. According to "Accuweather", who should be sued over that name, it wasn't going to rain at all.
    Yesterday, the weather was fine but my relief guy called off, so I got stuck working an extra shift when I had planned to be on the bike.
    Today, I planned to ride in the morning, since the incoming rain wasn't supposed to get here until early afternoon. It started over 6hrs early, and I'm sitting at home on my off day doing laundry and reading about mountain biking on the internet instead of doing it...again
    Working another extra shift tonight, but the rain hasn't been horrible, so hopefully the trails will be ok to ride tomorrow.
    Forecast shows rain the next two days, but I guess that doesn't mean much!

    Been Checking the 10 day forecast myself lately. RAIN,RAIN,RAIN,RAIN..... Does not bother me as long as it is not cold out, just have to choose your trail wisely.
    It gets dark out early in January so i will be throwing the bike in the truck with me and trying to ride right after work myself.

    What kind/brand pants are those? How do they do when you ride?
    I want something similar for when i ride early morning and it's cold.
    Almost froze my A** off a few weeks ago thinking i could handle the cold.
    totally cut my ride short on account of 37 degree weather.

    Cold? Never again on bike :-)
    I wear winter tights that work perfectly from 25F to 50F and put some summer shorts over and POC Joint knee protectors. O, and merino socks and 5.10's.
    For upper body merino wool shirt + softshell (and goretex for descents).
    Bellow 25F, some endura long pants over tights + goretex jacket..aaand we're good to go.
    The weather is not a question, clothes are...and i am the most freezing rider there is...
    It is interesting to ride dry frozen woods with no snow...feels like all surface is made of concrete - not a single little thing would move under tires...
    The only problem that remains is, how to carry water without getting freezing cold. Camelback tube would freeze as well..I've learnt my lesson with warm drink and riding the cold-never again says my throat...
    Had a nice local winter ride two days ago and planning to have another non-local(yeah) tomorow; little kid needs to visit grand parents and there is no weather that could keep me away from riding :-D

    I rode 3x today. Local trail just a mile or two from LBS. Then went to LBS and test drove a "fitness bike" again, bought the thing, and rode it this afternoon when I should have been sleeping(night shift).
    I feel fitter already

    Today I found a lot of single track that I hadn't ridden before on my normal ride that I usually skip. And the reason I hadn't was that I suspected a lot of up and down, I was right. I think from now on I'll incorporate these single track trails in lieu of the 2-track around the hill for a better workout as they were a blast. Fallen trees, brush, swamp, roots, and one section in a gully with a "DO NOT ENTER, LIVE FIRE" sign leftover from a defunct firing range. I got lots of spray and scratches, but no falls!

    Went Nordic skiing at Whistler Olympic Park last two days. No riding nearby yet. Skiing is good this year. Had to use violet klister today. Worked well now I have to remove the goo.

    Writing from SoFla I can't be negative since I get many many nice days all winter long. Your photo however is breathtaking. El-Nino has provided way above normal rainfall here; looking at your post brought up that green jealousy!

    Last evening. Foggy in places with a light rain throughout. Nice warm 46 or so degrees. Very little mud. Dark under the trees so I did my usual stop and turn off the lights for a while. Love the forest sounds in the pitch black darkness. Nice. Couple weeks ago enjoying the dark heard some rustling in the bushes nearby. Hit the lights, and a couple deer were walking through the bushes 15 feet from me. Cool.

    It's too bad more people don't do that. Sit in the woods and just listen.

    I love listening to the sounds on night rides. Mostly it's just tree branches bending and snapping from the weight of the snow and ice but occasionally we hear owls hooting or coyotes howling

    Exactly, it's the night sounds.

    It's so cool how your auditory acuity is so enhanced at night. You hear the things that you never seem to notice during day time riding. Not just the night sounds, but the rhythmic sound of your tires on the snow, dirt, and such.

    Watching the thin, wispy clouds out the window today I kept thinking it was going to be an awesome sunset this evening. I was not disappointed.

    Got cleared by the doctor to ride after reconstructive surgery, so did a 6.1 mile ride on some multi use trails. Felt great to be back on the bike!

    After work, through the trees, in the dark. Kind of windy, low 40's, a little under 2 hours in the saddle. Had a nice cold beer waiting when I got done. Fabulous. Gonna sleep like a baby tonight and be feeling good when I wake up in the morning. Life is grand, isn't it!

    Yes! Third ride of the week this morning after work. Totally psyched about finishing my favorite loop stronger than I started and wanting to do more after just a couple weeks on one gear. Still slow climbing, and there are places I get stood up and have to walk for a minute, but loving the challenge and steady progress.

    Yes, indeed. Second ride this week, another short one, but considering I was not my bike for weeks before that it was awesome. Lots of snow tonight, might be a minute till I get out again...

    11 miles, 2,155 ft climb. Snow on the north facing climb, hero dirt on the south facing descent. Fun times.

    Yeah, all of our trails are saturated at this point. This spot is better than some as the trails are under the trees and covered in a nice layer of redwood duff. The Inbred got a bath after I got home.

    Yes, did 10 miles in an absolute mud HELL! Wish I would have gotten some pictures of us, because at one point we all had to stop because mine and another riders tires wouldn't move at all due to mud buildup. Today(Northwest Indiana) was the first nice day(50*F) and I rode Burhm Park in Westville and Imagination Glen in Portage, Indiana.

    Did 30 miles at Coldwater Mountain in Anniston, AL. Trails were in incredible condition. Funny story, on the last descent, a 4 mile downhill with some rocky tech, lots of doubles and jumps, my fork starts making this horrible rattling sound after I blasted through a rock garden. I think "crap, I broke my fork, how much is this going to cost" and keep going. Finish the ride and check the bike out on the rack. Fork wasn't broken. Front brake caliper screw had come loose and was rattling...

    Saturday night ride. Excellent conditions. Mild weather (0c) A bit of ice on the trail. Most of last weekend's river ice was melted.

    If riding around on my snow covered lawn and driveway for 30 minutes counts then yes I did ride my bike today.
    I want a fatbike so badly, but I also want a full suspension bike.

    For the beginning of February, it's dangerously spring like. Perfect ride day...72° sunny with light breeze out of the north.

    Rode today. Weather is unusually mild (7c). River ice is disappearing so we looked for some ponds. Started to rain as we were heading home ... it was all good

    Figured we'd go up the road to a local trail to ride after being couped up with all of the rain. We drove 8 miles up the road and found the whole area blanketed in snow! We turned around and went down hill to one of our usual spot a only to find it muddy AFTER we made the climb up the fire road. Nothing left to do but cruise down so we don't ruin the trail. Sure was pretty though.

    What's 10 miles there, something from the South TH?
    I'll probably be there today(unless I just go to Trussville, instead) and Friday, and Coldwater on Wednesday. It's tough working night shift

    Hi JC. This is pic is actually a tiny frozen pond! And that's the largest bit of ice we could find! In past seasons that whole grassy section you see in the background is ice covered... We used to be able to ride between the weeds. I think we are having a winter drought; less percipitation compared to last year at this time. There were a few puddles on the trail but it wasn't muddy. We might get rain this week but compared to past winters it's different and we just have to make the best of it

    Nice pic BTW

    Did 8 offroad rides in January. All kinds of them; cold, warm, on snow, dry, wet, icy, fog, some were muddy and one was at night. We have had a fair amount of sunshine as well! Here is result of overoptimism.
    It was a very generous January though :-)

    Yes 2 10-15 mile rides both Sat and Sun. About 40F and slush city the entire time. I don't think the fat wheels gave my any noticeable advantage. I had fun nonetheless, but I certainly spun out on some of the uphills and I took some trail home with me from the looks of my jacket, pants and bike. The best part was seeing some of the other bikers out in the fine weather, lots of head nods in acknowledgement and grunting sounds as they passed by through their own trail slush.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Just got home from my normal after work ride. The trails have finally dried out a bit, leaving us with wonderful hero dirt. Rain's in the forecast for the next couple of days.

    Rode yesterday... w/ a fella that has torn his shoulder ligaments (particularly one that controls bicep) he did it (fell off - got injured), on Xmas eve... and he went like a cut cat!? He was sore afterwards though... think the 2x cold I.P.A's lessened the pain.

    ^^^long tendon of the biceps. Inserts on the front of the shoulder. Anywho, on topic, put together a nice training loop for Enduro racing at my home trail yesterday. 30 miles and every possible descent I could fit in there! Though a fallen tree after a blind turn claimed my left brake lever

    I attempted too, lol. The trails I ride were perfect two days ago; just the right ammount of crusted hard pack...enter tonight; it's been warm since then and everything has been all melty...well the trails turned to sheer ice, and it was like the ice capades! I wound up taking my bike for a nice 7km hike though...figured "Well I'm already out here, might as well make the best of it!"

    I took my 29er out for a short ride around my yard and up and down my driveway to test out my new handlebar. It is nowhere near as nimble as my 26er but at speed it's gonna be one stable rocket!

    Can't wait for summer, so I can ride down some real trails.

    Did a nasty climb yesterday to access some local ST. Beautiful day out yesterday and we will remain in this warm/clear pattern of another week. Heck it was pushing 80 degrees F here yesterday and it's supposed to get even warmer!

    I love these updates. Always makes me want to ride more!

    Hit up Auburn yesterday. Conditions were amazing and so is the new bike setup. I was taking it easy thinking my suspension was still off but soon realized it is dialed. Super stoked!

    Boring on video perhaps but so much fun.

    Rode w/ the shoulder club yesterday (me & 1 fella = grade 3/2 AC separations, other fella = torn ligaments [one of which connects to bicep femoris]).

    Great workout... established forest, rooty, needley, loamy + bit of clay.

    2 hrs 30 mins for the ride... nice weather, so peeps were everywhere on their whips.

    Nope.

    I actually skied at Victor Constant Ski Area which is located at the USMA, West Point, NY. Different for me and I only was allowed because I'm retired army (NJNG). Not big but I collect ski areas like some people collect bikes. This was my 106th different mountain/hill skied in the past 47 years. I'll hit three new mountains in Austria in March.
