    Owyhees on sunday

    Thinking about heading out to the Owyhees on Sunday morning. I would want to leave Boise at 7:30am so we can be riding while the trails are still frozen. This won't be a suffer fest since I will not be going very fast on heavy bike.

    Let me know if you are interested.
    Live to ride!

    we saw your truck out there Steve. I sent you an FB to get your # for next time. the trails we're cold enough to ride for the most part part but we did collect some mud in a few spots. Chris and I were wondering if the sticky-E compound tires we were running were holding on to the tacky dirt. riders with schwables and other skinny 29 tires seem to do better keeping the mud off. not sure its worth changing tires for 'insurance' out there when I just need to watch the thermometer better. do you have a weather site for marsing you like?

    When I saw 31 degrees @ 6:30 here I figured things would be thawing real early out there. I am going to try this week when the cold returns.

    Sorry I missed you guys, did'nt know you were starting earlier, I was at the TH @ 8:20.
    Ended up going up wilson creek down bingo and around china wall. the ground was frozen just enough to prevent most mud, and the fog kept the sun away, so that helped to keep the dirt frozen too. Should get colder this week.
    I will be in town and ready to ride this weekend

    Probably go out on tue. or wed. early am, if anyone's interested.

    If you'll stop by and pick me up, I'd love to go. To much snow to ride at Turkey Mountain.
    Am I being kind?

    Was out yesterday and did the big loop. almost all trails except China Wall were hammered by cattle. Most of it was dry. Best to wait a few weeks? until the cattle smooth out their own divots.

    Yeah, the cattle....
    local peeps usually give up on the Owyhees when the cows start "mooving" in, too many fresh cowpies and cobbed up trails, + other places are drying out and can be ridden
