Yesterdays ride. (Pics)

I had a blast, with the threat of bad weather the trails were empty!! Went and did a couple trails up there. The snow was starting to fall in the last 40 yards of my ride... Perfect timing! Only grabbed a few shots






By the time I got home

Oh lord how I hate winter, I haven't even had snow yet and I'm already waiting for summer. I live in Canada and have done it all, skiing, not my thing. Snowshoes ah thanks but no, shovelling snow yeah right, sliping on ice no thanks, MTB snowmobile trails ah did that no fun just suffer without the joy of speed.Ice fishing is not too bad if you have enough beer. OK I do like tobogganing with my kids but that's it. Winter sucks.

It sounds to me like you are in the wrong country. You might want to move a few thousand miles south.

Oh I would but when one has no trade, no drive, and no skills and is lucky enough to have a job they should at least be smart enough to stay there...lol
