    I love the way the bike seems to be peeking out from behind a tree.

    Bike had to teach me a lesson on Saturday (how quickly I forget basic skills when away from the bike for a while).

    And, a view from the ride. Near Calistoga, CA.

    ^^Yikes, time for a new helmet!

    With deer season over, I got out on some local snowmobile trails yesterday that I had been avoiding by landowner request. Still ran into a couple of armed men, though, as it is still bird season. They were friendly and we wore orange.

    You all seem to have great weather, here's me (invisible under the snow with x4 snowmen melting in the seats)

    Aloha! Keep 'um coming. Love the pictures and the "one liner" stories. I'm done here for the year, headed to Michigan for the holidays for some "family time". You guys have fun and be safe.

    Nice! Where is this? Reminds me of the summit of Hunter Mtn. in the Catskills with the fire tower..don't know if you've ever climbed up one of those, but it's pretty freaky!

    Hi! It's Mt. Beacon, about 60 miles south of Hunter Mtn. I've never ridden in the Catskills but I definitely want to explore up there in the spring :)

    We did a Christmas Eve ride on local trails and then through the neighbourhood, .

    After a good trail ride we relaxed by the fire

    Went out to ride Brown's Camp (Tillamook Forest, OR) yesterday and found a foot of snow in the parking lot. Skunked!

    So we went to LL Stub Stewart and checked out the trailbuilding efforts of the local mtb club. Kinda icy in spots, but good stuff. Even rode the beginner freeride line.

    Everybody else bailed on the ride, so it was just me & my sweetie. Which meant a lot of makeout breaks. Proving once again that nothing has changed since I was 14: all I want to do is ride my bike and chase boys.

    Well, since the ground is covered by about 2 feet of snow, and there's no place around here (that I'm aware of) where there is any packed trail..today's "riding" consisted of practicing track stands in the living room.

    I think tmo will be the day I see if riding in this white stuff is even possible. I'm getting some serious cabin fever.

    Wasn't expecting to ride snow in the desert after I got back from my ski trip.

    So jealous!! Next year, I'm getting one of those. I miss being out on the bike. With the thaw that is happening now, I'm hoping to get back out on the bike this weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed ;)
