    Thursdays Improving Trail Scenario!! T.I.T.S. night ride!!

    Thursday 6:00 pm Ironworks !!

    Help us welcome back the goat! as he kicks our a$$es up the climbs

    im guessing with all the snow and foot traffic- and lower temps we might have some frozen trail. Routes are all subject to improvisation and randomness!

    I may fare better if I can run, but I miss the bike riding thang so I may be convinced that pushing my bike in snow is cool.

    Pushing only necessary if you ride too far west of the Florida parking lot - it slowly gets more and more difficult (see pic). The Green Mountain trail out of the Florida parking lot is pretty well packed all the way to the tower. I went all the way up Wednesday night and there was just one climb (last climb before the tower) on which my legs gave out on the Fat.

    Sounds like a big ol loop might be tough! Heard a similar report today- thanks for yours!

    I am inviting all snowshoers to get busy and bust out and 11 or 17 mile loop we can cruise smoothly on!

    There was a big ol' crown of hikers in the parking lot - not sure where they went but clearly are getting your message.

    Now that was some fun times


    I mean where else can you get rick rolled and get to hear Aladdin and Jasmine singing a spot on duo of a whole new world!

    Last night was the essence of a t.i.t.s. ride- $hitty climb - but mostly doable- the view from the top- then the massive orange glOw that we timed perfectly to crest the skyline as we stood there in awe! Then a bombing descent on a white chunky frozen playground of awesome challenge !

    ok sounds a little cheesy but nights like those are rare and watching some rising karaoke stars in their prime!

    only one crappy iphone pic

    I forget how much more focus is required to ride those chunky, rutted, footstep ridden singletracks through the snow. Intensely awesome!

    And the singing at the end of the night, just reminds me why I love t.i.t.s rides and the company that comes with the rides
