Winter Road Ride

The weather was pretty good this past weekend and I needed to ride. I only had about 2 hours to play with, not quite enough time to load up and go to the park for a mountain bike ride, so I decided to get out on the road bike and log a few miles. Rolling out from my front door I road to the Logan County Airport and back. This is about a 10 mile ride, not much on a road bike but given the winter weather, lack of riding, Cat 2 climb and 12% grades this is a pretty challenging little ride. Check out the pics and MapMyRIDE data.

Long Time No Post

Well it's been a while since I last posted but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy. This winter we decided to focus our trail work on improving some of the existing trails rather than creating new ones. So far the work is coming along pretty well with some repairs and re-routing of trails in some area, though I have to say I do miss the excitement of building (riding this summer) a new trail. We have benched in some areas that needed it and chosen some better lines to improve the flow and increase the speed on a few trails.

If any of you are familiar with this blog or our trail working habits you know that the weather rarely stops us from working and today was no exception..........19 degrees and snow on the ground. Below are a few pictures from the last few weeks work.
