    Anybody want to ride today?
    I'm open for suggestions as to where..
    I was thinking of heading down to White Clay but could be convinced to stay closer.. Having problems with my middle ring on my bike + the added bald tire... Not certain I want to trek that distance until this is resovled.

    Let me know soon..

    I don't have a map, but I will give you a tour, as I am one of the locals. The problem is, ski season is about to begin and my bike will be on the rack until Spring. If you don't find your way before then, keep me in mind and I'll show you around. You are going to love it.

    I will hopefully be riding Friday and saturday morning. I also snow board but the bike doesn't get hung up. It spends to much time on the rack as it is.

    Ok. Looks like the snow should start early. It might b closer to 8 but no later. I try not to impose on the the family time to much if I can help.

    Nope, had a flat and decided to switch out to a new tire.
    It took me all morning to mount. Pain in the butt. Not to mention my. Jain needs a good cleaning . Might try Togo tomorrow depending g how long this snow lasts

    Snow ride Sunday?
    I couldn't make it today but I do plan to ride Brandywine on Sunday. Let me know if you are interested.

    Never been there. How many miles? What kind of terrain? Single track?

    Brandywine State park Delaware
    A normal loop is about 10 miles. The terrain is varied and you have a lot of choices-flat and wide by the river, hilly and lots of single track otherwise. It is fun in the snow-I rode every snow storm in 2011 (the year we had 75 inches of the white stuff).
