The Good Stuff

We got to shred all of the surface types last week, from snowpack to buffed dry and everything in between. A fashion show was required to find the right outfits for the pleasant though threateningly wet conditions. And the ride was followed by a leisurely taco session as the three least concerned about bedtime riders chilled around the propane heater until Wednesday.

Conditions should be ideal this evening. Normal start.

Keep Your Parmesan Dry

Everyone enjoyed riding through Cronan and the Greenwood Creek parking lot was a great site for tacos but, brrrrrr the taco session was cold. Without the advantage of heaters, as the temperature of the wet air dropped below freezing, riders crowded around the lantern to keep their hands warm. No one dared eat tacos with gloves on for fear that the taco discharge would ruin them forever. Perhaps on freezing nights we should reconsider our menu. 

Once again, the past week has been dominated by snow sports.

Time to get back out on the dirt. About a tenth of an inch is forecast for ride time tonight. meetup at Blue Gouge sometime after 6.

Wetter Where?

Wrapping up last week's idyllic ride at the top of Park Creek Road, the suggestion was made to switch up the ride location again this week and head out to the Cronan Ranch trails. I believe the Magnolia Ranch TH was picked for the taco site. Wet and cold up the hill though it doesn't look like Pollywood got any snow. Wet and not quite as cold in Cronan.

Good Clean Dirt

Through December FT3 clearly logged more miles on the slopes than they did on the trails. But, now the snow sucks and the dirt is prime so let's go mountain biking!

Temps above freezing, high humidity, .big moon, should be a great night
