    Global cooling

    Had to share this one from MTBR's Oregon forum...

    Snow in April at 1000' in Oregon's Willamette Valley is rare, but we've had more than our share this year. In fact, it just won't quit. Way weird. Anyway, the only bikes you'll see in this thread are singlespeeds: Winters last throes.

    Warning: plenty of pics. Enjoy.

    P.S. Thanks to Sasquatch for his usual excellent behind-the-camera work.

    Sparty,

    Wow, awesome shots! I'm still sad I didn't get to join you for the spring BC gathering, also found out the potential JOB is a no go, so not looking like I'll be a resident yet. I'd love to have a little break in the weather. I've already begun using the SPF 70 and drinking a gallon of water a day to try to stay hydrated. 88 today, in the sun felt more like 100.

    Wow. Some of those totally surreal. Amazing, the blend of the green and the snow.

    Bob, I confess I was thinking of you when I posted the Oregon link here. Wanted you to see what you were missing plus feel real bad about missing the spring fling. How'd I do?

    I hate to rub it in, but we've got the best backyard. No brag, just fact.

    C'mon up for Fall Barbie (Oct. 24-26) and try some o' the local goods. Better plan on a minimum of 2-3 weeks...

    Those pictures are fantastic!

    I prefer the term "global weirding". We went from 2' of snow to dry, dusty trails in about a month here in NH. Crazy stuff, but good for early season riding!
