    Is there going to be a New Years day ride this year? Weather doesn't look too bad. Same as last year would be good. Ride and food and drink after.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    Thanks to Scott Olex and Ron Hines for a freezing festival ride. For those wondering "Yes, it was very painful" the wind at the top of Big Blue was howling at 30MPH making it well below Zero!

    Are there trails at the Moon that are currently rideable with a fat bike?
    Haven't been up there since all the snow but might have a FB to try out.
    Slugs love beer.

    Moon is closed to all who ride such silly conveyances...
    ... pray for days off of school in the coming future due to sunburn!

    Tried the moon Wednesday night with the new Fatbike and and Flurry. Flurry went fine, the fatbike not so much. Snow was deep with a thick, but not thick enough to ride on, crust. Ended up riding some of the roads through the park, but they were icy. Didn't have time to stud up a set of fat tires yet, so had to take it easy.

    Ride da Moon-img_2961.jpg

    Deacon really kicked my ass tonight. Went over the handlebars and landed like I was doing a push-up. Felt fine. Got back to the car and noticed a gash on my chin that wouldn't close. Ended up meeting a cute PA at the emergency room. She stitched me up just fine.

    I didn't know what thread to throw this on, but this one seems right. i got out to Moon Lake for the first time yesterday afternoon. What a cool place. It snowed and was cold as sh!t, but the trails were very fun. It also had this kind of post apocalyptic feel, with nobody there and all the abandoned buildings/facilities. I was hoping nobody would come out and eat my brains while I was getting my bike kit on at my truck.

    With so many trails and intersections, I kind of had trouble picking my routes around at first, but then just stopped worrying about figuring out a route and rode the trails that seemed cleared or most ridden. For as rocky as it is, the trails flow really well; its pretty technical, but not that grinding technical and all those fun little ramps, rock features made it even better. The topography is really cool there. Ledgeview was a particularly fun section.

    You guys/girls did an amazing job out there. Thank you. I'm stoked to get up there again sometime because now that I kind of know the lay of the land, I'll be able to get after it a little harder.

    Thank you. I will. As an aside, how do the fat bikes perform on those rocks. I imagine they just kind of bounce along over them. I ask because it looks like there are a lot of fat bike riders there. I keep toying around with getting one, but feel like its more of a novelty.

    just,

    It's all about tire pressure, you can tune it so it absorbs lots of hits, and keeping it just on the side of not to low to wallow around with too much drag works best. It's just a try it and ride it method till ya get it close then the fun starts!
