    Bike Log 2010

    Another great snow ride this morning. We still have about 2-3" in the woods. Makes you work hard, since its still pretty powdery. But we were able to ride almost everything...even some slick rocked boulders covered in some snow. A bit on the chilly side..but those new booties I got rule.

    The only thing that was cold were the fingers on my left hand. We were out there for over an hour. Now I'm off to the office!

    Got out 4x last week. The woods were riding really well....Wed, thursday, friday and sunday and I skied Saturday.

    Got out there yesterday and again today. Today we had about 1-2" of snow and it was puking as we were riding....stayed off the slick rock...but the trails were still pretty good..nice and crispy and grippy after the rain soaked ground re-froze this week.

    I got out in the local woods this morning.. OMG, they are a mess. There is an area near the reservoir that is like a mini pine barren area. It looks like one of those crazy mythic scenes from Lord of the Rings...trees just down everywhere.... We were stopping every few hundred feet to pick up the sticks...and branches. Major upper branches of old hardwoods just downed.

    Got out again this morning. Man, its just crazy how many sticks/trees/branches are down. We ride 100 yards. Stop, pick up sticks and branches, move downed trees when we could, had to reroute (at least temporarily) a few sections...added in a few new tree/log rolls. I think my buddy and a few others are going in on Monday with the chain saws.

    Gorgeous ....almost perfect riding weather.
