Sounds like there's something for almost everyone. Will there be any run-ups for the cyclocrossers?

Opinions are like pimples, they vary in amount and cover different areas.

There is no or, you're going to lose it.

Just finished a test lap of the course for tomorrow. It is a total mixed bag of tricks. Bare frozen ground that may get soft with sun exposure, bumpy frozen ground slush and ice, smooth ice, 6-8” crunchy snow… First of the ice is very visible and avoidable with some slow speed maneuvering, so ride safe and smart. Trying to decide on your set up for tomorrow there will be advantage to plain old knobbies that will roll fast where they can. For you studs there will be lots of trails you can ride with abandon past those gingerly picking a line though the skating rink. My fat brothers and sisters there will be enough deep crunchy snow for you to float past others making pushing the extra lbs around worth the trouble. Should be hard but fun. I managed as a mid pack rider to ride the course in an hour at a relaxed pace.

8:30?

I'll be up anyway, and I like having a cushion.

Course pre ride?

Of course. And maybe a post-lap if the ground stays frozen.

Not very fast but havin' fun!

We could switch to the three bike rack and make room for one more. Departing Amherst 0830. If you are someone that is habitually late, things probably won't work out :-P

And I reserve the right to run a background check so as to avoid problems at the border 8-)

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

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.
