    Now that's how to start a morning!!

    Man I love this season!!! Riding in snow is AWESOME!!! I LOVE IT!! Got out a little early to hit up a trail by where I work. While I did not make many fresh tracks I still managed a few. Every so often I would come across tracks from a Fat. Those tracks are huge, I can't wait till I can afford one. Hope you all enjoy the pics, I had a great time riding!

    Very cool. I couldn't imagine what riding a bike in the snow is like. Great pics.

    No, I just use basic tires. They do just fine!

    While I like cycling a lot, I can think of a much better way to start a morning.

    I am sure doing so would violate BF's terms of use. Use your imagination.

    This is a family-friendly site....and by that I do not mean a site dedicated to showing how to start a family!

    I would love to try riding in the snow. I'll be it's amazing! Thanks for sharing!
    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!

    We have pretty good snow here now. I often wonder about riding in it. I am just too cheap to buy a mountain bike. I want another road bike so bad I can taste it, but I just cant bring myself to pull the trigger on a high end bike. I keep hoping for a deal on a close out, and they never come. I suppose in spring I am going to be screwed, and end up paying full price for a nice bike.

    Beautiful pictures! Thank you for sharing them! Makes me itch to go there with a camera to use Photoshop's Photomerge function for panoramas.

    Very cool (pun intended).

    I actually like snow, and wished I lived a little bit more north. Indianapolis winters are gray and hover a lot around 35-40 degrees.

    I love making my coworkers groan by looking out the window and saying (excitedly) "Hey look everyone... it's SNOWING!"
