This will be a new thing for this forum, what we have here is a thread for posting ride reports. Each day fresh ride report thread will be posted. For today and tomorrow this will be the one for the ride reports, but starting Saturday, a fresh ride report thread will be posted. While pictures would be nice, they aren't required for this thread.
A suggestion for laying it out is:
3)Didn't keep track
4)Cold, mostly cloudy, with wind gusts from 5-20mph(Off of Weather report)
5)Slick and snow covered in parts, got muddy towards the end.
6)Headed out for a ride this morning by time I got to the trail head this morning and rolling it was 7 am. Got a realy good sense of how the Intense tires work in the slippery conditions, gripped very well, the occasional rear wheel slip due to ice coated roots, but didn't go down was able to ride it out each time. At the end of the ride the conditions changed from slick to greasy because of the mix of wet leaves, slush and mud. Called it a day when the pain in my left hand got unbearable(arthritus, having busted the left hand up 3 times in 5 years will do that to you.) Overall, it was a good ride.
For those who celebrate thanksgiving today, have a happy thanksgiving.
