    Brady's Run Snow Ride

    Here's some footage of a 2/17 Snow Ride at Brady's Run.

    I shot most of the video (black handlebars & grunting on the steep climbs), with Tim (white handlebars) shooting the last downhill to the ice rink. Tim runs Ironman triathalons for fun, so no grunting or other audible signs of exertion from him.

    We've been riding in the snow so much this year that my Ray's MTB season pass is underused. Hope you like the video, which was fun to shoot but turned out to be somewhat boring to watch. Tough to ride fast and corner when any little root that's slightly less than perpendicular to the trail will sweep your wheels out for you. To compensate for the less-than-thrilling riding, I started & finished with some "Stormtroopers of Death."

    Good to see people out riding, me and Ron have been riding all weekend all winter, it's definately not about speed but peddling through the snow takes a lot more effort and will really polish up your body english skills.
    It's all about getting out and having fun.

    Good job!

    That's great!

    This has been fantastic, I've been out all winter, got to ice fish, XC ski lots, hockey on the lake, mt bike, quad, snowmobile and DH ski, of course lots of new trails built too. Kinda my own personal bucket list. Winter with a right amounts of snow is super, the fresh air, trails not crowded, and even with the cold temps it can be done.

    Even hit the trails early in the winter on a full moon night, a coating of snow and used no lights, it was cool quiet and fun, just gotta have the right attitude!

    Thanks for sharing
