    Snow report - how much did you get
    Got a goo 5-6" up here in central NH, how is it looking in Massachusetts?

    I am hoping to find some dirt to ride on this weekend.

    A dusting on Cape Ann to about 2" in Burlington. The trails look perfectly rideable. If it weren't so damn' cold today I'd be out there at lunchtime :(

    I was thinking the same thing. It's cold with flurries here, would be ok if the wind wasn't blowing about 20-30mph. Feels like 0 with the wind.

    Decided to hit HP with a couple friends today. There was 1 to 2.5" on the trails, but not ridable. We did a short ride and it was very difficult.

    Any updates on the trails? Has anyone been out to ride since the storm?

    Crusty
    Rode some trails in Lynn last night and to night. Not bad after I got in the swing of snow again. Just have to go slower and can't climb worth a crap. Sure miss rollin off big rocks tho.
    Anyone riding about 5 or 6 pm tomorrow?

    Just got back from Lynn Woods. It was a mix of crusty icy stuff. I was wishing for studs. I'll be hitting Dogtown tonight. That should be much more rideable.

    What time are you riding Dogtown. I've never been there. Would you be willing to show a visitor from IdaHo around?

    My buddy is getting a new bike tonight so we'll be putting it together and then taking it for a quick spin. I live across the street from a trailhead so it's easy for us to just pop in. It probably won't be a full on ride though. In fact it might not happen if we run into problems.

    I'd be more than willing to show a visitor around but tonight probably wouldn't be the best night. Maybe tomorrow or over the weekend? Send me a PM if you're interested.

    Please give an update on the trails. Would like to know snow depth as well as ice amounts.

    If your a Xcountry rider looking for a trining loop Lynn Woods would be a poor place to ride right now. But if you want to go have some winter fun in the snow this crusty stuff has pretty good traction. Tuesday night I had to push thru about three inchs of snow, first bike on the trail after the storm. Last night and toinight it was easier cause there's been a few bikes thru there now. A little ice on some of the big rocks and a couple icy patches. I only slipped on ice once, I laid a small stick across the trial on each end of that ice spot cause it's hard to see.

    I know Lynn well and not looking for a training ride, just want to get out and have some fun. I was looking for any info on the trails down that way. We are looking to hit borderland or Wompy, as they seem to have very little snow. Just trying to figure out what to expect and if studs are vital. Don't mind a little ice with the regular tires, but more than that and I want to have the studs.
