    New Years Day Ride at Carvin's Cove

    A bit late with this thread, but sorry expediency is not one of my better known traits.

    A ride is a great way to start the new year. The New Year weather was as nice as you can hope for this time of year yielding a good turnout for the event. Those of us whose main passion is mountain biking would have it no other way.

    As you might expect, people rapidly broke off into smaller groups depending on ride speed and the length of desired ride.

    At the top of Brushy Mountain the new free ride area is taking shape.

    Looks like a great ride. Beautiful trails.

    My New Years Day ride in NE Ohio was a slog through slick snow. I'da rather been there than here!
