TGFT3

Friday, B and Droptail and I took the dogs out for some pollywood fun. Showers turned to rain and the temperature dropped ten degrees in an hour. The wind howled on the back side of the lake. Thick coated Booker thought it was great. We riders were fine, though it took me a few days before I really felt warm again. Short haired Zoey, however, shivered sadly and had take shelter in the Knothole. Mother Rye invited her to curl up next to the pellet stove and fed her king-size biscuits.

The turning season brings to mind life's cycles. And while we all look forward to the bone shattering bacchanalia of the winter solstice, other holidays have their place on the calendar. Recall last year's TGFT3: Cappy took us on a tour de steepes where our tires crunched snow within the Pville limits. Best enjoy the exceptional Pollywood trail conditions while you can. Won't be long before the winter's first FTski.

  6. there is a rumor in the mills that we may be rejoined by the fearless ride leader himself. Tho, this rumor has no legs to stand on - yet.
    As it is the holiday season, one can hope.

  8. I love the new cover photo. Who is it tho? It appears to be NoCar from the looks of that 'cross bike, but the lack of kneewarmers on a cold night tells me it is B. Not to mention the tailight. Hard tellin.

  9. What will my standing be among FT3 pack members? Will I come back fit? Can I handle the cold, dark, night? Can I ride a mountain bike? Do I still hiccup? Is my light charged....oh shit!

  10. LoTB is now sending texts alluding to his potential presence this evening and further substantiating unsubstantiated rumors of his return. The text I am referencing quoted LL Cool J and showed a photo of bicycle lights on a charger.

  13. Back Channel from Xteric: He is "TOTALLY" in. By which he means he plans to smear himself with blackberries AND be rideleader.

    Are we counting Lars yet?

  16. So, is that it for the TGFT3 posting. No Lars appearance? Will there be a real appearance later tonight?

  19. I think Cappy will be in the front pulling a tough pace as always. Regarding the new photo, my guess is that it's B on Nocar's bike... but that's just a guess.

    Six!
