snow singletrack

snow singletrack
Originally uploaded by rOcKeTdOgUk
about 12" of snow fell in places yesterday with blizzard condtions so today when i woke up to clear skies i was determined to get out and ride. Roads were awful and it was difficult to ride in a straight line and keep momentum, but once in the woods it was great, ploughing through virgin snow and carving turns, bitterly cold out so the hipflask was deployed and although the ride was only 5 miles, pedalling through the snow made it feel like a lot further
ride 123
5 miles
total 1570

If we are going to get this sort of weather more often in the future -I think that I will have to get a bike like yours - skinny tyres just don't cut it in this weather....!!

I was thinking I need a proper fat tyre bike like a surly pugsly or a mukLuk
