Yikes! Reminds me of back in '08 when we got 24" snow in 24 hours. What a mess...

I didn't get this photo how I wanted it, shame as the riders only go past once.

Nothing wrong with that picture! Except maybe not getting the guy who should be riding that lovely blue bike leaning against the sign.

Don't you just love it. Slow feet and sneezing rain. My favorite. NOT!

Stay warm.

Right back at you.

You really got nailed!

That is an amazing amount of snow, hopefully we only get a foot.

We are riding first thing in the morning, before the snow gets too deep.

Should be a hoot.

I noodled around the upper and lower Snoqualmie Valleys today.
The river was running a bit high so I stopped bt the falls to have a look-see

I saw some wildlife

Passed through Carnation after climbing the Tolt and Ames lake Hills


It was cool and drizzly all morning. Some cleanup was required after 60 miles..

Beautiful! Is that the Acorn tubular bag? I want one.

I got muddy today as well. I rode to Eva Bandman Park to ride around. It was a lot of fun and I learned I'm going to have to HTFU if I'm ever going to enter a CX race.

So much snow, nlerner! I've got to think you didn't have much company out there on the road.

It came to me as a rusty older model Voodoo Wazoo frame. I added the rest.

Yes, that's an Acorn Tubular Bag Colonel. It can carry alot which comes in handy on shakedown rides for the extra tools. Acorn will be putting Olive Green Bags up for sale Monday 9am Pacific in case you haven't heard.

I love those pictures Vonruden posted. What kid doesn't get excited when it snows! Looks like you guys had a real good time

Checked out some used bikes at a charity bike repair/resale place, then rode around the Guadalupe river park, trying my hardest to stay off the paved trails

Thanks!

It would be a perfect bicycle for the AGRS series here.

Looks like an off road, soiled bike kind of weekend. Headed into the hills today for the first time since December. The road is clear thanks to the logging activity, but also pretty rough in a few spots with some deep ruts. Fortunately no log trucks today.

Midway up the "long hill"

Wow Scozim, great pictures!

I commuted to work today after the blizzard. It was sleeting this morning on the way in, but the temp rose to about 45 later in the day, and foggy on the way home. My commute is short at only 2.5 miles each way. It was like trail riding on the road following the single and double track ruts left by the cars. I hit the deck on the way home on a rutted icy mess and landed in a 3 inch puddle of ice water. Nice!

Here's a bad cell phone picture.

^The Fuji looks great! What's up with the saddle angle? Seems like you'd be sliding forward. Just sayin...
