    No snow yet, but hard frozen trails are pretty damn fun. Even got to see the sun today for 30 minutes.

    Other than crashing on the climb (lawn dart screwing up a pass on an "up and over" rock move), then on corner #4 of the descent (stuffing my front wheel onto a rock just out of view, and going OTB) was a swell ride. Just swell.



    I blame the lower temps messing with my suspension.

    Smacked my head both times, but nothing major. Just the slightest dent in the plastic of my helmet. ON EACH SIDE!!! And I scratched the reservoir of my super baller brake lever, bars, and took a nick out of a stem bolt. It was not my day.

    Still beats workin'.

    Explorer or Deerfield ? Or Wolf Branch or whatever connecter that takes you to Rice Pinnacle.

    Last time I rode BC I was kind of shocked at how much traffic it gets now compared to when I lived there. I'd never go there on a weekend now, way too many other humans.

    The view from 11500ft from Squaw Mtn looking West towards Mt Evans.
    Followed by the view looking East back towards my house ~13 miles as the crow flies and 4000ft below me.

    Post-ride brats cooked in brown ale. Pooches were well pleased with their trail run and their reward at the end.

    Nope. Not in BC, but I know where you are thinking and good guess. It’s Fletcher Creek in Mills
