HYPOTHERMIC

Beautiful snow today.


Our ride time forecast couldn't be more dismal. After several inches (a couple feet?) of snow accumulation, temperatures rise above freezing and the snow turns to a bitterly cold, heavy rain.

I remember the last ride of 2015, when the snow was so deep we could only follow the wheelers' tracks up MET, then descend Park Creek and Barnes Back to the lake road. We might be able to repeat that route. Or we could have a big snowball fight. Regardless, its going to be wet and its going to be cold. A good night for gaiters and water proof socks. And if anyone gets too cold, we know what to do.

  1. Your a brave man Nocar. The clampers have been busy on the MET so maybe you can suffer a few miles on that. OUT

  2. Ah, I remember that amazing day on MET when we showed the wheelers how real men hit the hills, then we got powder turns home. Sweet. Sadly I will miss tonight's fun but it looks like it will be deep.

  8. FTSki seems the right call for the evening, that or an "Alt-Ride" in the Pville steeps. Either way I am on the fence for the time being, will update later. Nice revisit of the ski pics. I miss that scrappy little dog.
