Lots-O-Snow yet, but I think I'm on to a novel idea. I'm going to try and mount a propane torpedo heater to the front and back of my bike. That should be just the ticket for opening up the trails around here.

Hey Bill, thanks for updating your avatar, it's like he's not gone at all. Keep the memory alive.

All seasonal forest roads are impassable. We've got to have about 18-24" of snowpack.

Once again the snow has melted, leaving us with just plain wet conditions.

You need to drive around and go in from Mutton Hollow Rd.

the first section of the road up from the training center is one of the main snowcat/snowmobile routes and is covered with snow.

I am coming up xmas eve and am seriously considering bringing my bike. Can you still travel in a car on the the seasonal roads or are they chained off? I imagine they are possible with the lack of snow.

If anyone wants a riding partner during the week of 12/25 - 12/30 call me at 716-699-2130 and ask for Dave.

And I just did 45 minutes on the trainer - first time since the torn calf. And I felt nary a thing (other than out of breath).

Maybe I'll have to head out this weekend.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
