    ride report: we rode progressive trails today

    hilton falls/agreement forest - tough riding... crusty snow and skinny size half packed down trail. if you wondered an inch off of it - good bye balance and traction... still way more fun than staying in bed.

    1. Usual meeting spot - Timmy's.
    2. Trail head
    3. I was so fast on my bike i was able to stop and take pictures. I think.
    4. I front wheeled that icy pond. Unfortunately I was not that fast to stop and take pics of myself...
    5. I don't know why we all had clipless. I wish we all ride platforms... I hear our guts would be smaller...

    Does Santa Cruz make good bikes?
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    ah yes, progressive trails:

    1. Progressive trail #1
    2. Progressive trail #2

    We enjoyed riding progressive trails. Much easier and definitely suitable for all stakeholders... We came across only 2 riders... Lots of hikers and few XC skiers... Awesome day on two wheels with a good bunch...

    Looks like even though it was an insular ride, everybody had fun! Hopefully the last weekend of snow riding this winter!

    neeeew...

    we are a very green oriented group and we do not want to compromise sustainability of the trail system, under any circumstance.

    besides, despite a huge disadvantage of having to ride clipless for pure fashionistic reasons, we still manage to ride around without needing studs.

    But I accept beer for those wanting to donate for it's usage.

    Sorry to see you need to start your ride with a horrible Tim's coffee.

    I do like the clips usage on progressive trails.

    Good to see you guys taking into account all stakeholders on this progressive, insular ride.

    I was greenventuring out to alert major landowners about a insular Cupacake Road Race in their neighbourhood but still managed to soft-pedal for a couple of hours before dinner (no report yet on abdominal expansion) on clipless pedals.
    Tomorrow, we start flagging - hopefully not too progressively - might scare stakeholders!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.
