Cold weather fun !

This is my second year riding out in the woods instead of doing any indoor trainer miles. Todays temp with the wind chill was 9 degrees, and I was nice and toasty the whole ride. Last year the coldest I got out on was -16 degrees for several hours. I already have a tad over 100 miles of trail riding 12 days into the new year. The bonus part is I ran into another rider which is super rare, even during the good weather.

I'll trade some of our trails for some of your weather, just make it hot weather.

This has been one crazy winter, weather wise. I like putting the ride by shots into my videos. What trail is this in your post.
