    Snow and ice riding picture thread.

    We have a beach/sand pic thread. And a pic-a-day thread.

    We seem to be missing one dedicated to snow and ice.

    Whatcha got?

    Weather has been warm and rainy this season, so I only have one ride in the snow so far...

    Since we are allowed to reach into the past, these are from last season...

    done fell off the skinny:

    Winter and fat bike season came earlier this year in Vermont. Trails have been riding great since mid November.

    Wow! Amazing Photo's in here!

    ...makes me realize I need to get out of the city!
    I did make a quick New Years Eve night run, not much snow but it was still fun.
    (-8ļC in Alberta, my preferred ride temp.)

    Looks like a decent start to the season.

    Weíve had 140Ē of snow but the traffic has just started getting out to pack it down.

    I've got nothing better to do than re-post old photos while I'm broken for a few more weeks. I've also got a suggestion for the OP, that we add locations for each photo, that might make it more interesting.

    Living in the UK means that I am a bit short in the white stuff... on occasion it does fall, but not often in my area. Fortunately, my wife is from Finland and last year (sounds so long ago) I bought a Salsa Mukluk for over there. I enjoyed a week there in the summer getting it fettled, and I have just returned from a week playing in the snow over Christmas.

    It started off cold, my first day was -16įC.... no groomed trail here, I was wishing for a 5inch Meriwether:

    Snow and ice riding picture thread.-45846545544_d2c9f91214_c.jpg

    I am the invisible man....you can see right through me:

    Snow and ice riding picture thread.-45656361495_c9a70eb205_c.jpg

    That night the mercury dropped to -21įC and I got out to admire the almost full moon and the still night air:

    Snow and ice riding picture thread.-45846545124_aced5be769_c.jpg

    More snow came over the next few days and warmer temps, my mini trail system was filled in, it was back to pushing a fair bit... bit I loved every second:

    More snow over a couple of the many Finnish lakes:

    Short days, way up north:

    Snow and ice riding picture thread.-45846541974_20b1814f7e_c.jpg

    For next winter I will get Bud and Lou... until then, I will carry on enjoying the dillingers that work for me so well at home:

    I had to tread VERY lightly last week in central VT. Rain, refreeze, dusting of snow and no studs were not a safe combination! I stayed off my a$$ though.Snow and ice riding picture thread.-img_1669.jpgSnow and ice riding picture thread.-img_1667.jpg

    Argh! Why do they keep coming in upside down?

    We have been dealing with lots of thaw, freeze and little snow. Truly studded tire conditions, but I donít have such tires so I am just slower.

    Definitely, let me know when you have time, my work should be slow next few weeks.

    Hope to get a decent amount of riding in early this season.
    Freaking raining right now.

    I love my fatbike, but it doesn't snow around me. I'm only a few hours from the Sierras, but that time is spent skiing in the winter

    First real snow of the "winter" that we get in Ohio...had to get out and ride!! (Jealous of all of you who live in real winter-lands though...gotta hit the lotto and move north!!)

    Wet, "snowball" type snow. Temps were 32-35*F. About 4 inches. Was riding at our local city park...trails I have ridden since the 70's on BMX, and also one of our local official MTB systems, which have been closed due to rain/mud for weeks.

    Started out with Dillinger 5ís a few years ago until I bought the wife her first fatbike and she confiscated them. They were good but I had to add spacers under the studs to get more grip for the ice we have on the coast of Maine. Then they were like Velcro.

    So late last year I bought some Wrathchilds and they are so much better in every way than the D5ís. I enjoyed them immensely but they still lacked the float I needed with my 205# self. The ice grip was awesome and they were still a fast rolling tire.

    Snow and ice riding picture thread.-e56eb460-9082-4e49-a736-e99f84baa0c7.jpg

    So I decided to get something larger, and found a great deal on some new Johnny5ís.

    WOW! These things are huge, the absolute largest that will fit my frame (Moto Night Train Ti), and slightly larger than the Bud I normally run. I tried them out yesterday on a local trail and am very impressed.

    Snow and ice riding picture thread.-438dcf01-b2c6-483e-895c-0e962d04a1a5.jpg

    Since theyíre over 1/3Ē larger than the Wrathchilds and have almost 100 more studs (I used the 45NRTH XL studs), Iím sure theyíll do well. They arenít heavy like the Snowshoe XL but did not feel as nimble as the Wrathchild/D5. Iím not racing but donít want to feel as though Iím dragging around a boat anchor either.

    For those looking for Bud/Lou type float but studs, consider the J5.

    Minnesota river bottoms just west of 9 mile creek. The ice so perfect and would be ideal for ice skating on.

    that looks so awesome!!! Soft and powdery....not too deep

    We are getting 4-10" (supposedly) of snow this weekend. I think it is going to still be the wet/heavy snow, but I will still be out in it

    Thankfully the snow cat had done some.

    I was born and raised here and can still see the beauty of winter. In fact, I always loved winter and now I can combine my passion for bikes and winter. Every ride on the snow is like a new adventure! Here are a few pictures from my ride last night.

    You have to open them in photo editing software first. Somehow that makes your computer understand their orientation.

    Loving the Johnny5ís even more with this ride in Topsham, Maine, too bad my Sun Race cassette wasnít up to the task. I was actually able to stand up and power up the icy hills when other people with studded tires were losing traction on level ground.

    Yes, itís considered high desert. We usually get 12-14 in precipitation per year. Weather has been crazy over the last 5-10 years - this time last year I had 2 ft of snow on my roof.

    After being very jealous of all these snow and ice photos it actually snowed here in the north of England yesterday morning, what's more - the sun came out So a short ride (13Km) up on to the local hill. It wasn't too cold, about -2C and I suppose 2-3cm of snow.

    Rail trail Jim Thorpe, PA. Ice out and slush back, great day! Touristy spot but almost alone except cc skier and 1 walker. I won't forget the experience of feeling gushes of heat radiating off the rocks across the ice and all the sap warming up scenting the air.

    Riding Steep Downhill on Snow and Ice

    Downhill plus snow and ice sounds like a good idea, right!? More slipping and sliding. Also testing out the GoPro 7!

Then I'd thought I'd seen everything - until he streamed driving along a bike path, to where it meets a road, then waits for an uber to drop off his hobo friend (with his leg in a full brace, out of hospital a few days ago), so he could load him into the trailer and take him off to live in the woods with him in his 2,000 gallon plastic water tank. The look on the uber driver's face was indescribable.

    Unfortunately they end the stream before they leave the bike path and head down the hill into the forest. I really wanted to see that. But the camp rebuild to accommodate his friend was entertaining, as were the disco lights at night. Once the hobo-friend got hauled back out in that trailer to go to an appointment, there was no way he was going to return and have to go down that hill again. Now the friend's streams show the friend in his leg brace largely on a mobility scooter at Walmart hiding beside the store with sign saying "her lawyer was better".

    I believe it was Xmas day that had him streaming from the veranda of a restaurant charging his batteries, when a woman going by (concerned that he was waiting to eat at a restaurant that wasn't opening that day) called out to him. He replied something to the effect of "I'm fine. I'm just stealing their electricity."

    He has since driven his e-bike, with trailer & dogs & tools, to another city for work cleaning house flip job sites. Previously on a site, he said a neighbour came over to warn them about the hobo she'd seen in the backyard that morning. He explained it was him. She said no, another hobo. He said he plans to return to his tank in the woods, but while he can handle the wild boars (with his cans of mace), he's concerned for his two dogs with how many rattlesnakes he keeps encountering getting in there in the warm months.

    You wouldn't believe his job idea he's looking for funding for.

    His fixing his bike and trailer is mix of ingenuity and cringe.
    Crazy on this ship of fools...

    February Fever

    February, my favorite Fat month has arrived!
    The days are longer...
    The sun feels warmer...
    Trails are set and the crust is awesome...
    And best of all is the promise of more snow in the forecast!

    A bunch of frozen rain and wintry mix yielded this unique granular ice substrate. Interesting stuff to ride in.

    My bucksaw has been a quiver killer of sorts for me, but with last years lack of snow, I had questioned my need of a fat bike. This year has definitely reminded me that yes, yes I need a fat bike. My bad back says it must be FS.

    It is in places around the Sussex area, the trails are for sure, not quite as solid as in the Spring though so breaking through fairly regularly. The last round of freezing rain has built up a pretty good layer. Heading to the Park tomorrow...

    Fundy Park: Went to the Park today and the crust looked promising from a distance but I wasn't able to find any that was rideable. The trails are in great condition though.

    Nice, we get some similar riding out in our inlet when the tide is out, ice chunks everywhere, but some decent riding.

    not in as epic of places as you all get to ride, but we got a quick...and possibly the last...good snow here in Central Ohio, so I had to get out in it!!
    My version of Heaven/Therapy/Happy Place etc...

    25deg F, perfect granular, "just sticky enough" snow over top of frozen ground

    It works well for me. It's about 90lbs of salt in a 40" sled. I drag it around on snowshoes. The base of the sled is 16-ish" wide, so makes a decent single-track path. My less experienced and balanced friend has a little trouble staying in the packed sweet-spot, but it's good practice for him, even if he does make a mess of the trails. ;-)

    I'm thinking I might try something a little wider, like maybe a 26" diameter saucer with a tire on it for weight. Should make a nice little bobsled-type path... We'll see.

    I'm in Ottawa, Canada. We actually just had the snowiest January on record, but that followed almost no snow in December so it's about average accumulation, overall.

    Bracing ourselves for another dump tonight and tomorrow. Looks like working from home, where "home" equals "out on my snowshoes". ;-)

    Nice! I'm in KW so we already have a decent well used groomed rail system here. But there's also a lot of not so used trails around I've thought about grooming myself. You see the odd fat bike track here and there but more so foot or game traffic.

    We got an unusual amount of snow here on Southern Vancouver Island. So much that I missed work for the first time in 5 years. Since I was home I headed out on the Krampus to run some errands.



    Sorry 1 person and a smartphone means no actual riding pics. The Krampus handled all, but the deepest and most drifted snow really well. The main challenge was the churned up slushy snow left by vehicles that forms channels/ruts. Getting out of those was entertaining.
    Safe riding,

    Last weekend and until tuesday night our trails were nice and hard packed. It was like rolling on the highway.

    Last night after getting a lot of fresh powder it was a bit more challenging.

    Perfect timing as a riding buddy had just done a loop with the groomer and temps were getting colder.
    Almost ran into a moose as well.
    Great Sunday afternoon .

    Wish the hikers would not walk on the fresh path though

    Got out further afield today. Cranked out ~40kms of 29+ SS goodness to get to a hike. Locked the bike up and did some sketchy slushy hiking and then rode back home. Always nice to avoid firing up the infernal combustion engine and get life done.

    The nice thing about getting snow in an area that's not used to it is that you don't have to share the trails a whole lot.
