Nope, Hatch Rd on the South Hill, northbound, with the Manito CC on the right.Is that Charles road up from Nine Mile?
Lame winter pic, I know, but we're just getting started!
Downtown Oslo had lots of rain yesterday and no snow but above 700 feet it fell as snow.(I met the plough half a mile up the road, very nice ride from then on.)
basically unridable anywhere unless you have a pugsly or some really fat tyres so you can float on the snow.
35mm W106 at 35psi was completely inadequate.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
Hi everyone - longtime lurker here! I started winter biking this season, with my old GT Zaskar. Here's a pic from the Don Valley trail in Toronto...

Me thinks we'll get some good snow pics today Pat!

Here are pics from my first snow ride ever...... this is coming home from work during the storm that hit the northeast. I think I am in love..... it kept the ride interesting and fun, thankfully I only saw 4 cars on the road during my ride.
One day after the snow storm that dumped 24 inches in the city in 36 hours, the city was starting to recover and get plowed out. The clouds finally blew out, leaving a clear cool day. Starting temp: 0F. Cool, but managable, and nice to get out in the sun.
This is Alan on Howard heading into downtown:
Crisp cool morning in Riverfront Park:
Met up with Pat at the Rocket, with his new Karate Monkey
Bikes on High Drive Bluff:
Alan hiking up the bluff. See video
Next stop, Winter Solstice...
Took a pic of the house and myself after the ride today. Just rode around my local area nothing fancy. The trails have a few feet of snow on them and more is comming down. The early football games sucked so I needed to get out of the house.
In the winter (as ever) the best way to ride is in a group!
On a very cold morning in mid-december 2009, around 0F outside... We had just finished climbing a 250 feet hill
And on the december full moon of 2009, the temperature was quite warm indeed - 15F or so!
Not enough snow you say? Look at the wheels!
About 20 cm of the white fluffy stuff this weekend meant a playday!!
Fell lots, but nice cushioned landings!
great photos looks like a blast
Thx - it was a hoot! Though the few xc skiers I saw thought I was nuts!
Here are a couple from this winter:
Pulling the trigger as often as possible.
