    It's not looking like it in North Vancouver.

    Here's a pic of Andrew at Lynn Valley B&B two days ago. He's a block from Fromme's trail system.

    Some trails in Kamloops should be good to go by the weekend. Not a lot of trails but some.

    Nice to see temps back to seasonal norms again this week. +15 C today in Calgary and messy as hell. I can't believe how quickly all the snow is melting.

    We don't really get spring here on the wet coast, more like an extension of November or 'Novapuary' which will carry on to, oh July 15th or so and then return by the end of September.

    Having said that, the +4 to +7 degree celsius we typically have this time of year is adequate to keep cycling year 'round.

    Other than the 25mm/hr rainfall we seem to be having right this minute. I just saw a squirrel float by gesturing to throw him a bagel to use as a life preserver.

    Not too bad in the Okanagan although I had to give one of my local trails a miss last weekend as it was covered in a layer of ice with water flowing on top of it. No interest in mounting studded tires in March. Found a few other places though and the temps are supposed to be in the double digits by Saturday. Spring is coming, slowly.

    We're just hitting prime Pugsley season up here in Yukon. More daylight and the trails are well-packed. We can get on road bikes in another few weeks but mountain biking season looks like it will start around May 1, as usual.

    Trails are clearing up fast in Kamloops. North side trails are good, the south side ones, at least the ones down low, will be another couple of days.

    That's what my car said yesterday, and that's what I heard on the news.... you must have missed it. Anyway, it's back to below seasonal temps again.... it IS Calgary, after all.

    I'm not taking off my studded tires until May long

    Nice! If you don't mind, keep me updated on Kamloops (and all other areas) as they're getting close to rideable - thinking I'm going to have to make a weekend pilgrimage to find some dirt. Edmonton's going to be snowy and wet for a loooong time, I think.
