    You are mistaken; I do not ride closed trails nor muddy trails. I have PM'd you where I was. Look closely at the soil. It is not mud, it is sand and this "trail" is actually a dirt fire road that no one rides. There is no way to damage the sandy road where I was riding. Any ruts in the sand will be gone the next time the wind blows. If you don't believe me go ride it yourself.

    Three questions for you.

    Did you ride Maxwell?

    Is that Horsetooth Reservoir?

    Did you ride a fat bike?

    Because I was up there that day and snapped a of couple photos. Not sure who the fat biker is climbing Maxwell. Maybe you?

    And then I had a Bigfoot sighting.

    While Maxwell is my back door ride, I chose Lory State Park that day, so it was not me.

    Yes, that is Horsetooth Reservior, from Lory on the west side in Eltuck Bay.

    I don't ride fat bikes. My snow bike is my carbon Niner hardtail with flats installed to allow for riding in Sorel boots.

    It's only 2 hours from us. Didn't I see in here somewhere that you just purchased a fat bike?

    Last ride of 2016. -2 degrees Celsius, frozen dirt and puddles, almost no snow to mention. Pure bliss.

    Thanks, it's in a national park in Finland. I'd not necessarily trust the ice though. Temps have been fluctuating a lot lately and the place is so remote that you are probably screwed if you fall through.

    Cool..literally? Now have met a Finnish rider, and met a Swedish rider the otehr day. My bucket list dream is to visit Scandinavia...I am Swedish in my heritage...and would love to add riding some trails there as well

    Only a couple of rides so far. It is goofy looking and very inefficient, but still the best tool for the job in these conditions. I don't see it becoming my main ride any time soon.
    The grease in the freehub got so thick in today's 4 degree temps that the pawls stopped engaging, so I have to rebuild the freehub with a lower viscosity lube than what it came with. Was cold enough to freeze the water in the bottle in under an hour, even with a splash of Schnaaps in it to lower the freezing point.

    You would think the manufacturer would take into consideration that a fat bike may be used in colder temperatures and use a viscosity of oil that could handle that. You would think.

    Nice water bottle anti freeze.

    Good to hear you are out enjoying this winter wonderland. I took a drive around Horsetooth and through Masonville today. The snow is 2-3' deep in some of those areas.

    From today:

    Snow in GA??? It was 10* this morning and easily in the negatives with the 20mph winds. We Southern boys aren't used to these conditions! Soldiered through the Snake Creek Gap TT anyhow.

    It was about 10 degrees out, no wind. She is my grandbaby and 2 years old. My daughter had her very well bundled up. We were only out playing around for about 40 minutes.
    We stopped and talked a few times. She loves the adventure!



    She's a pretty bold, rad little one.

    I don't detect any misery....lots of people would rather ride in the snow than the dust. I would imagine a small percentage even like both!

    What I don't get about desert riding is ...cactuses! Slamming into a tree is one thing. I could not imagine slamming into or falling into a cactus...to me THAT is misery!

    One time I fell onto a bunch of prickly pear and was pulling inch and a half long thorns out of myself for a month. Moral of story? Don't run into cactus.

    I'd rather ride in a 100 degree desert than on frozen tundra, that stuff's for skiing.

    Same goes for trees, which I suspect have more structural injury potential than cacti do. Hitting any decent sized tree at speed is a very bad thing. Only the smallest ones have any give to them. Best to avoid it if at all possible.

    How about gnarly singletrack that becomes fast and flowy with snow/ice cover? It's like two trails for the price of one! That said, I'm totally enthralled by desert riding and really need to get my carcass out to the southwest and do some. It's so different to anything I'm used to riding.

    yeah. I do want to head out west one day and hit some of that terrain, but it would have to be in the winter. I can not get motivated to get out in temps over 60degrees. The other things that definitely mark me as a midwesterner that keep me out of the desert are rattlers and scorpions. Would not want to fall into the path of either of those things! I will stick to the occasional fox, or teen-age gang member/hooligan smoking in the woods as my fauna of choice

    I ride my BMX more in the summer, mostly cause the parks are open and ice/water free.

    I MTB in the evenings and night in the spring and summer, which is actually sort of cool in both ways.

    But give me -10* over anything above 60*. I am the minority in that aspect

    I'm actually exactly in your camp with respect to temperature tolerance. If I have to push hard above about 60F I get overheated and end up with an exertion headache. I'm much more comfortable in low temps than in high ones. Last night it was -4C (25F?) and I only wore a light merino undershirt, a long sleeve jersey and a light Goretex shell up top and my regular baggy shorts over bike shorts with lycra long underwear under the baggies (so my lower legs were only covered by the long underwear). I used regular full finger MTB gloves and a very light toque under my helmet. I was bit cold for the first 5 minutes or so and then I actually had to stop and take the toque off.

    Now, I have been told that the dryness of the desert can make it feel cooler than the same temp with humidity but I don't see me doing any strenuous riding in 100 degree weather no matter how dry. Our summer temperatures rarely get above the mid-70s.

    Anyway, breaking the thread rules here, so I'll shut up now.

    People ride in cold and snow because that is their only option to ride in winter. I would be out there too if I lived somewhere cold. But I don't know anyone who would rather ride in cold and snow than in shorts and t-shirt weather!

    Cactus is seldom an issue on rides unless you go off trail. It keeps you honest. If there was cactus everywhere trails would stay narrower!

    I don't like riding in hot temps either. 90F is about my limit for a longer ride. You can get used to the heat though. Friends in Phx still ride when it's 110-115F. I start going up to elevation in summer when it gets hot here. Or stay by the beach.

    Scorpions aren't an issue. Rattlers can be kinda scary but I don't see them very often. Personally I am concerned more with ticks, I have found them on me 12mos of the year. But never in the desert!
