Willow Creek Road had a couple days to dry out before we trampled it but it was pretty rutted by the end. You live in an area with some great riding! The course even passed through Monte Rio this year.

They should think about adding a leg where you scale a bluff with the bike strapped to your back.
They came close. There is a section where the road is washed out so you have to shoulder your bike, climb down a 30-foot-high muddy embankment, then climb up the other side!

Riding in the flatlands in 'winter' may not be very scenic, but the warmer & drier weather is a major benefit. Blue sky, light breezes and 50s for many days in a row is great in Jan.

No Dorothy, this is not Kansas (certainly not Seattle), it's central & rural ArKansas.

Vonruden, glad to see your Weigle making the rounds!

Got out with a couple locals for a 55-mile loop around the edge of the east bay. A couple old-timers on a Moots with electric Dura-Ace and the other on a new Calfee with electric Super Record. I was the "young guy" with DT friction shifters.

Headed up from Berkeley toward Crockett and the Carquinez Bridge, then along the Sacramento River delta for a while, before heading south toward Concord, Lafayette, and back over Wildcat Canyon climb to return to Berkeley. Lots of pretty scenery in this thread, so I'll start by taking it down a notch. Had to pass by some ugly refineries first before getting into the more scenic territories.

This past weekend a friend and I sat in on a ~pick-up cx "race among friends." It confirmed that I am indeed out of shape. Fun time with a good group of people + post-ride brewery stop.

Runup:



Post-ride stop:



We decided to take the long way home, following the river. A 25min return trip was happily stretched to 2.5hr. The thicker set of gloves went on once the light started running low, no mo' pics after the glove swap.

Nice to ridin' goin' on.

I jes' rode mah commute again, a 32 mile runs with an 8-hour break in the middle. Temps about 24F when I started, a bout 35F when I got home. I have no idea what the temps did during the peak of the day but I imagine they got a bit warmer.

I took a frigid 32 mile ride before work on the Hudson Greenway. It was around 20 deg. and windy but clear and still enjoyable. I was dressed for the weather but by the end my toes were numb.

Today was the first ride on the Woodrup, maybe 25ish miles of fun.

What riding we did today (and yesterday) wasn't on a bike. However I did wear some biking apparel.




Extra points if you can spot the apparel and if you know where this is.

Week 2 of my MS150 training series here in the Houston area and did 55 miles braving low 50s, hills and wind in Hempstead. We partnered with another organized ride and had over 1,000 riders.

Starting line with a gaggle of cold Texans looking to get their ride on.


Rode the '84 Competition today. The bike mechanic at one of the rest stops fell in love with it (he's clearly never been to this forum). Here it sits on the back of Trixie the ride taxi after putting it through its paces for the day.

Hey, thanks Greg! Not a bad winter for riding so far, eh? ...assuming you can keep everything warm - I didn't think to throw on the toe covers today and wish I had. Nice looking bikes and pics as always. Those are Stronglight 49d crankarms with 50/28 TA chainrings.

Great pics and riding @djkashuba.

Low 50s? BRRRRRR! I would probably have packed a long sleeve shirt for that. (Packed, but not actually worn, mind you.)

Texas sounds like a good place for wintertime riding.

Nice cycling cap. I always wear mine when X-country skiing a Forest Service road - somewhere in New England.

Yep. Walz cap. "...somewhere in New England." I guess "Boston-ish" is a good clue for that. Bretton Woods, bewteen Twin Mountain and Crawford Notch, NH, in the shadow of the Presidential Range. They have their own weather system. This morning Accuweather had a video of 127mph winds on top of Mt Washington yesterday.

On the other hand, it's great to see the pics and read the ride reports from Caveman, SN, plonz, yourself, everyone else here!

@Vonruden @Sir_Name We definitely have to organize a spring century in the not too distant future. It is great to see so many of us out there riding this winter!
@djkashuba Great shots! Are those current photos?! It looks almost subtropical on the other coast.

Yes these are from 2-4 (Saturday). Sub-tropical Mediterranean is what I have heard our climate called. Allows the sequoias to thrive. Rainy winters dry but foggy summers. I am new to the area and loving the climate so far. Wettest winter in a decade but our home, neighborhood has held up fine. Some outstanding riding in the area. Bought a bit of a fixer-upper house so I have not been riding as much as I would like.

I love the "postcards" from around the world in this thread.
