Back on the bike since my arm injury, and the healing process is moving along. So why not go play on the ice covered trails with no studs, what could happen ? It's all good !

It is a great area to ride with over 100+ miles of trails. The crazy part is that in four years of riding out there I have never ran into another rider, not counting ones that have ridden with me. Tons of fun !

Yes the water level was that high, and I was in some sections where the tree ice rings were several feet over my head. It was pretty cool riding out there with the tree ice rings everywhere.

Pain is delicious so let's go give them more pain!


Ouch! Well I did the gasp-laugh, but I see we're alike after a wipe out.

- Swear
- Roll over and stare up for a bit
- Do the walk around shake
- Bike check and go!

Awesome area, very cool with the flooding. And yeah, time for studs!

Keep 'em coming!
