    Is this still a "Bike Path?"

    Is this still a "Bike Path?" (Taken with my cell phone camera)

    They haven't yet plowed today after last nights snow. Temp was -8F (-22C) on my morning walk.




    And here is a few feet of snow piled in front of my house. The front loaders dumped the snow from the street on our already deeply snow-covered lawns!

    Wow! You guys are really getting hammered this year.

    Have you ever tried cross country(XC) skiing? When our Ohio winters were regularly as snowy as yours, I did a lot of XC skiing. Good fun and quite a workout.

    I would love to. We have XC skis, but with my wife's knee replacement on Monday, she does not want me doing anything that might involve an injury to me, and she considers XC skiing to be one of those activities (I don't, but, you know . . . . ).

    If I was injured, she couldn't have her surgery, as I am her support afterwards.

    I hope all goes well with the surgery tomorrow. At least they have plowed the trails in Parker. I have not seen a single plowed trail in Aurora yet. So disappointing!

    Oh oh! I never thought of all the hot air that's generated in DC. There goes any chance what-so-ever of eliminating global warming.

    I have to ask. What does MUP mean? Also, is there a place on bikeforum that explains the terms and words? I use Sheldon Brown's glossary, but a lot of the slang terms are not mentioned in his glossary.

    That's how Wisconsin paths usually look for about 3-4 months out of the year. Not this year though.

    And when they look like your pics, that's when the snowmobilers are out in full force.

    just spent Wednesday skiing at Copper Mtn resort about 90 miles west of Denver -- they need new snow! This weekend's storm is supposed to dumping on them, but on Wednesday it was hard snowpack.

    I'm really appreciating the 65 degree overcast day we had today. A few of us rode 55 miles with a friend for his birthday ride. Beautiful day. Not a flake of snow.

    No motorized vehicles (except snow plows and maintenance vehicles allowed anywhere near any of our MUPS

    Yes, they always plow the MUPS. Usually as fast as the roads. Not this time, though. Every ounce of energy went to the main roads, then, finally, the side roads, then the MUPS, somewhere in there. They have had to plow regularly this year!

    I'm not suggesting you ride on the path. I understand your reasons for not doing it.
    Just saying I would love to ride there now. (the path, and the road if it's hard packed)

    The main roads are dry, except the side roads, which are still quite icy with ruts which could throw one around a bit.

    Actually, I would like to ride on the MUP, but not right now. This particular plowed section goes about 25 miles.

    62 degrees in Richmond today, nice and sunny with a storm front coming in. Had a lousy day at work (both parts and service on Saturdays), got home watching the front come in. Grabbed the Raleigh mtb since it was ready to go, and managed nine miles, the last two outrunning the raindrops. Supposed to pour tomorrow and possibly Monday, so I have a feeling that's my roadwork for this weekend.

    Loved the snow pictures, reminded me of my years in Erie. Ride all summer, XC ski all winter. Still have three pairs of skiis, but they've gathered dust in the attic since I moved to VA in 98 - yeah, 50 miles west is the Blue Ridge, but I was spoiled by being able to just strap on and cut through the back yard.

    I miss the skiing.
