On the other hand, it's great to see the pics and read the ride reports from Caveman, SN, plonz, yourself, everyone else here!
I didn't notice the cap, but I knew is was not shoe covers. Looks like your'e wearing old school 3-pin bindings.

Noop. Modern Salomon, but the skis are vintage and did have 3-pin bindings long ago.

They now rent out fat bikes at the BW touring center but seemingly don't encourage them on the ski trails. Didn't see anyone riding one.

Hey @jimmuller I wouldn't have posted if you hadn't brought it up since my ride wasn't C&V on this one, but I did some biking with skiers this weekend and loved it (and surprisingly got a lot of positive responses from them!).

Cool! That does look like fun.

As a bit of one-up-manship, here's a pic from two years ago. It was 5 below at the time...

I only got out in the snow for a few minutes. Today was fat bike weather and these tires aren't fat enough.

Bike is mid-80s Bridgestone CB-1. Wife's bike.
9" at our house.

Yesterday a buddy and I got out aiming to wander.



We went exploring down a trail that was iced out last winter when I first found it. It turned into 1.5mi of mostly hike-a-bike... That one's better left to day hiking.







Eventually we hit the roads again, finally, and pushed our way to Hammonasset Beach State Park.





...just a touch of winter warmer.




Then we went home.

Wound up at 46mi w/ 1656'

Indeed.

We had serious ice last night, big 55-car pile-up on rt128 this morning, ER's flooded with people who'd slipped while walking. Today the temperature rose to 50degF, and tomorrow they are saying we'll get 12-14 inches of snow with blizzard conditions. No riding for a while now.

Sir Name, is that Westwoods in Guilford? That rock formation reminds me of some of the trails in there, although the one river view doesn't ring a bell.



Here is a pic of my ride this morning. It was unseasonably warm today, and for a change I didn't have early morning meetings. So I dusted off my trusty commuter and had a great, although wet, ride in to the office. I briefly considered riding straight past the office and spending the day on my bike. I should have kept going...

Yes, you got it. We started on the blue trail which was mostly ridable and quickly wound up on the yellow which was not so much. At least not on the bikes we had with us. The river pic was taken around the black arrow below.

Hardly rode anywhere. Didn't get far before the trail turned to re-frozen slush, and I don't have winter tires...

I had to run some errands in Manhattan on Monday morning so I took the U08 in the rain and wind for 30 miles of fun. The snow, salt and grime now present on the roads so these are the last photos for a bit. Snapping photos on the trainer isn't exactly worthwhile.

Here's a link to a map of the rail trail(half way down page, on right side).

https://yorkcountypa.gov/parks-recre...rail-park.html

Some of the positives:

There is free vehicle parking at all the stations on the map.

21 miles in PA join to many more miles from the PA-MD boundary southward, well into Maryland following a narrow stream along the National Central Railroad (NCR) line.

It is level with a slight grade;

the surface has been refined over the past 20+ years so that one can run mountain bike or tubular tires, either, safely. It has a packed, fine gravel surface. (I ran tubulars this last time out)
Note: you sure can make better time on a road bike versus mountain bike.

It is rural, so the air is fresh and the views are countryside, some small villages for food, if needed.
You can literally ride all day and not see all of it. (PA + MD)
Picnic tables and rest benches, occasionally.

You don't get so fatigued, because it is so nearly level, traveling beside the old railroad bed.
It really makes a difference not having step hills.

The PA portion is open countryside, more or less; the MD portion is under a canopy of forest along a stream.

The negatives:
Just can't think of a single one.

My recommendation: Park at Brillhart Station, then head south.
This way you miss the short commute into York (not particularly pretty), yet see the best sites on the trail.

Be sure to carry a small pack with a flashlight, water, an air pump & spare tire, just in case. Some cash for food would be wise.
And rain gear if it looks that way.
And some energy snack food, so you don't bonk.
You don't want to get stuck out in the wilderness, particularly near or after dark.

That sounds perfect. My Motobecane Grand Record is set up nice for trails like this.

Took the Gran Tourisme out around the block today.

Good Lord, you guys and your snow pictures!!!!

Would you believe that today (2/12/17) here in Richmond, Virginia, it hit an unbelieveable 75°F outside?!? EVERYBODY was out on bicycles... EVERYBODY was out at those golf driving ranges, taking the kids/grandkids to play putt-putt, etc... Incredible...

My sister, bro-in-law, and I met up along the James River and went for a nice, gentle, bicycle ride. We only did 9.3 miles and took it slow and easy at about 10 mph, since my sister is still recovering from hand surgery (broken pinky bone - the one on the side of your hand). She was fine with the ride and could grip the handlebars. Her physical therapist recommended a gentle bike ride too.

Anyway, we pulled over along the river for some photos, and they took one of me with my classic 1985 Fuji 12 speed road bike. Still going strong with no signs of breaking down, falling apart, cracking (like some CF frames have been known to do). I love it and just can't get rid of it or retire it for something newer.

Sunny here in Northern California today too. 41 degrees when I left home around 9:30 and 61 when I returned around noon. I did a 31 mile loop in the neighborhood, enjoying the calm weather between the storms.
