    Sand, sticky things and sun vs. snow, slush and sub freezing temps?

    I guess most of us are stuck with what we have but share some of your pics.

    From today's ride. Windy with some spectacular lenticular clouds.

    Cool clouds you got there.

    Today I had perfect supportive corn snow with 40 degree temps after an overnite freeze, sun, and light breezes. Super narrow singletrack and traction for days. Maine coast.

    Hey Hacksaw, I'll be in Bath the 1st week of 2018. Not sure if I'll have any time to ride, but I might. Any place specific you would recommend checking out in a time crunch?

    Check out Topsham Trailriders Over The Hill ATV Riders for close to Bath snowmobile trails. You might find some fat bike tracks on the Whiskeag Trail.
    Bicycles don't have motors.

    Plus to add to that^^^^^^there is or was quite a fun network that is accessible right from the track/field at the Hyde school in Topsham. We used to race NORBA XC MTB races there eons ago. Bath Cycle and Ski could give you thorough up to date trail beta.
