    Rode Friday, got muddy, then took my older son out for his second time in trails. Maybe shouldn't have done the difficult runs, but he enjoyed it.

    Tomorrow taking my younger son out on his new Marin Nail 6, but nothing drastic.

    went out for awhile today.. don't know how far I rode because the strava app on my phone crashed.. =\ probably a longer ride for myself .. not necessarily super long but good for me..

    rode trails first then stopped by this park on way home to see the ducks.. the ducks are pretty awesome.. I like ducks..

    Took my younger son for his second trail ride. Something to say about modern bikes, he's on his new Marin Nail 6 that is too big for him, and he handed me my ass on the long ascent. Just pedaled up that thing. Slow going down, but in his defense, they were diamond trails. did you ride today?-img_20190129_162532.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190129_164026.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190129_165258.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190129_164555.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190129_170633.jpeg

    Took my killer Krampus out to tear up the neighborhood trails. Itís probably been a couple of months since Iíve ridden her since I tend to baby my steel girls when itís wet out. Felt good to hit the trails on her again

    Great job to both of you! To me, that bike doesn't look too big for him. It looks like the seat could even go up a bit more.

I've been trying to get use to the Trance Advanced 2 here.. finally have the set up ~right I think..

    Ha! Towards the end of the ride, I said the same thing. He is still having a hard time getting his butt on and off the seat, so there's a stop and fall over affect.

    Got a quick little one in before it got dark. PO'd it took me an hour and a half to get to the trail from the time I got off work. If' I'd planned it, I would have been more ready.

    Came down a trail I'd only gone up 2 or 3 times before ("gone" is spelled w-a-l-k-e-d). Very fun, SPring Creek Trail and Annadel State Park

    My buddy had truck trouble this morning, so we didn't do our planned sunrise ride. Instead, I did a back yard loop and still caught the sunrise. I also had the opportunity to have a stare down with a bald eagle.

    Got out before the snow comes tomorrow. It was a beautiful day up at Mount Seymour. Rode John Deer, Pangor, Severed, and a few others. There was a lot of climbing by my standards. I got to try out my new 28 tooth chainring...

    Hope Ride in the Snow Surrey Hills UK

    Rode three times this week in the UK and created my new youtube channel Trail Biker Terry shot in the snow in Surrey. See link below

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAb...f6OuE7fR_pNTcQ


    Also rode at QECP and below at Swinley with no snow

    If you would like to subscribe it would be appreciated as creating these videos takes alot of time and effort.
    Will be adding the best downhill bits, reviews and intro video over the next few weeks

    Cheers

    Thanks! At Duthie, all I saw were Transition bikes. SBG is really awesome! You definitely need to demo any model with SBG! My Scout will be completely built up this week. I can't wait to get that out too!

    Went out to Enterprise South today and did three trails, rode one twice. Put 10 more miles in, first time on a real bike trail and boy it showed me how much I need to work on. My legs are toast but I had an absolute blast and met some great folks. Only ate shit once, which was me thinking I could hit a small jump much faster than I shouldve. Bike was fine so I was happy. I'm definitely hooked now!

    64įf and sunny in Colorado today had most of the town on the trails, but I still found some solitude. Not bad for February.

    I did a run and singleprocket rode some of the river ice. We still need some rain and more cold weather to harden the surface but some section were ok to ride.

    is snow riding rare? I have read that you guys don't get much snow in that part of England...

    Able to get a few hours in, weather has been crap around here lately with 90%+ humidity and mid 70's making everything slick and sketchy.

    Thought I'd share one of my clips from my weekend bike park ride. This was my first time down this trail in 3 years. I plan to ride it much harder next time around. It was a pretty wet day!

    I like to make short trail clips that are easily watched and digestible online.

    Great ride today, gotta love February! The days are getting longer and the sun feels warmer, what's not to like? The promise of more snow to come is just a bonus!

    Had a little rain today so most the trails were closed. Went right up the road from my house and got in a short but enjoyable ride before class.

    Yep you are very addicted. I will take a guess that in 3 months, you will have another bike next to your current one. Only then will your journey to the dark side will be complete.

    Haha you are right! I found that the trail close to my house has miles of smaller trails that go around the side of the mountains. I didn't have much time to explore them yesterday but talked to a couple on my way out.

    I was riding that trail a bunch on Saturday to bed in my new brakes. I really dig VooDoo Child a lot, but only hit it once Saturday.

    For some reason, I wasn't doing very well on my jumping. I guess it didn't matter a whole lot since my main goal was to bed in the brakes.

    I did Voodoo a few times with some Active Duty Navy guys. They were all new to Duthie and I ended up riding slow behind them. I wanted to put them in my main YouTube video and upload all of my solo clips independent from my main video. I find that my videos are more interesting when I follow other people down the trail.

    Here's my Voodoo pass! I haven't ridden at Duthie in 3 years so I plan to ride up there a bit more. I can probably ride Voodoo and Jabulani much faster than I did in my video.

    Did 10 miles on " Atlas" and " Black Mountain " trails at enterprise south today. Atlas is their toughest trail and I was happy that I could push myself hard enough to finish it without having to walk my bike. I did have to take a few breathers tho haha

    I did, and it was one of the days that I could do no wrong. Went right through all my bad spots flawlessly. I was just taking my time or so I though but I got a PR on one the uphill stretch.

    A quick little ride through the muck with the younger son. The stumpy is in the shop, so I rode my other son's Trek HT that I've been working on. Glad I did, because it not only seems to handle really well for what I've got into it. However, it shifts like crap, stopping in between gears. So after, I dropped it off at the shop (bent hanger).

    Ha! I'm not really in what most people would call cold.

    It was 80 degrees here today, waaaay above what it should be. High tomorrow is 54, which is still warmer than normal.

    That's quite a view from your neighborhood!

    After a couple of training sessions on the stationary bike this week, I got on the road bike for some errands. Took some pics on a local transit/bike bridge even though I actually didn't have to take the bridge. Was about an hour of actual riding time...

    Even if it had gotten above 13F here today, I wouldn't have been able to ride many of my local trails because they have been closed since the mountain lion attack earlier in the week. Maybe the weather will warm up and the mountain lions will cool off by the weekend.

    Wow! That's a crazy story! I just read about it. I live in rural northern New Mexico, and we have plenty of these big cats trolling our hills too. In the past couple of years there have been significantly more sightings and minor attacks down here. Good thing this fella was able to save his life by fighting back. Good thing the cat wasn't full grown. The outcome would have been very different. Be careful up there my friend!

    interesting...you mentioned raynuad's. I had never heard of that condition until this year...one of my students has that. It also effects his hands when it is really hot...like over 95. Does it do that to you?

    Funny...59 is like the upper temp that I will ride in...anything 60 and above and I am bitchin' and complainin'

    Crispy urban loop this evening. The ground was like a skating rink. So glad for the studded tires. We're going to hit the trails along the Humber River tomorrow.

    Great ride today in Fundy Nat Park, great fatbike trails.
    A couple of rustic cabins available to rent along the trails with nice views of the ocean from the veranda.

    We rode down to the river. Conditions have changed greatly since last weekend. The trails are hard packed and icy. The river ice broke up and overflowed giant ice cakes. Half way through the ride we stopped and built a fire... roasted some mushrooms. Fun day!

    Ride #1: cloudy. About 25*F. 10am

    Good frozen ground at the local park. The traditional pic spot
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd1-1.jpg

    the trail ahead
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd1-2.jpg

    "The Swamp" is frozen over...trail is blocked as the depth is unpredictable. Had to turn back
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd1-3.jpgdid you ride today?-2-10-19rd1-4.jpg

    the river is really up and moving fast!!!
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd1-5.jpgdid you ride today?-2-10-19rd1-6.jpg

    so. Ride over, off to band practice. done for the day....

    except....

    SNOW!!!!!!! So I HAD to go back out and ride in the snow!!!

    2:30 pm . still 25ish deg F

    Happy bike!!! Hit the park trails again, but did the half that is blocked off by the frozen swamp
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd-2.jpgdid you ride today?-2-10-19rd2-3.jpgdid you ride today?-2-10-19rd2-4.jpg

    here is The Swamp, but looking back towards the direction of the pic from the first ride. What a difference a few hours make!
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd2-5.jpg

    the lake that the trails ring around. It is still frozen from the polar vortex...unfortunately, no ice skating though
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd2-8.jpg

    Swamp pic out of order...
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd2-6.jpg

    Happy Bike. Happy - but dumb looking - Rider...(now you can see why I rarely get into the pics)...don't know why this one pic got sideways
    did you ride today?-2-10-19rd2-7.jpg

    Happy Bike. Happy Car

    There was about 16 inches up at my house this morning. No riding for me for a while.

    I guess I'll be skiing if I can get up to the mountains.

    If the rain didn't hit today, then I was going to ski down Finn Hill.

    I miss my bike.

    First ride in 8 days. The temperatures were finally in double digits today after a cold week.

    Well, with the heavy snowfall we've been having it's been tough to get out. I did get the daughter to ride around the neighbourhood with me for a half an hour in the snow....

    How muddy was it? I canít handle those sub freezing and single digit cold temps we had. Time to get back out, get it while itís here. Another snow storm coming in this weekend.

    A little bike path, road, dirt, and water on today's ride...almost 60 degrees, too!

    There is rarely any mud on my sunrise rides because it all freezes over night. The trails looked like there had been some muddy sections the previous days, but not many. There were also some icy patches, which are probably a bit messy during the warmer afternoons.

    that is awesome!! But I would have been worried about riding it in 60* weather, though if it has been frozen for a while it is probably pretty thick

    a neighborhood rise in the snow is better than no ride at all!!! We have been getting the same kind of snow on the weekends here, but not in that amount
