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.

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.

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!"
