Dirtrider, Bo and I made it out to Borderland this morning. Conditions were not ideal, unless you really enjoy riding/walking in snow. We still managed to get a good ride in and a couple snowball fights.

Bo's valiant attempt


Dirtrider did find a small huck, sorry about the cropping on this one


When not riding, there were snowball fights.


The sign provides very little safety


Payback served up cold


This is one of our favorite bridges to ride, but not today. My bike is not leaning up on a tree, I just planted it in the snow




Looking forward to Otis on Sunday!

Very nice. Snow riding can be pretty challenging at times, down right scary at others, and fun as hell in between.

Bo seemed to love the specialized almost as much as snow down her back, which is to say a lot.

As far as conditions were concerned, I'd say that Bland needs some more foot traffic before it is worth going again. Hopefully, C.P., Bo, Andrew, and Rich can strap some snowshoes on their feet and hit the good trails once or twice and then the trails'll be ready.

I had a great time anyway, it was good to get out and it's always good to stand 3 feet away from Bo while she misses you three times in a row with snowballs. I almost felt guilty as she's such an easy target. Vos didn't get involved this time, but he may not be so lucky next time!!!

BTW, yikes my legs are white!

As I said on the ride, the first errant snowball that hits me will determine what side I was on. Neither of you pegged me, so I remained the neutral paparazzi. Though my kids made up for it when I got home. It was kinda funny seeing at least a snowball and a half coming out of Bo's helmet after one firey exchange.

Dave, what do you mean Bo makes an easy target? What are you saying?

......looks like fun. Sorry, don't count on me to trample down the snow. I'll be headin for the Cape. Great shots Vos.

.....the "few" times I missed snowballing Dirtboy is from being blinded by his white scarey legs (holy crap they are white as snow!).

Love the Stumpjumper just as much as I love throwing snowball in Dirtboy's face!

Thanks for the demo Kevin from BikeBarn!

Is that where you were trying to throw them? It was very unclear based on where the snowballs were actually going. I thought you were trying to hit invisible butterflies that seemed to be flying all over the place, but rarely in my direction.

well, yes, I was aiming for those "Underdeveloped" legs of yours........ I got confused with the surrounding sticks in the background..........target was unclear.
