Is it awesome out there now or what

such sweet traction! Anyone out on Seymour late Sunday? at first, i thought it was orange spray paint on the trail…it was the late afternoon sun coming through the trees! Outstanding ride.

luckily it turned to mostly rain. a bit of mushy snow up to 5th, just a bit here and there, did crinkum, all good except for some damn slippery mush on the first rollover!
Other tracks went further, Ladies and Pipeline will be fine.

Snow!!!

I am going to go on believing in what the weather network says until I get home tonight and see for myself…. :crybaby:

Otherwise guess I'm doing a snow-ride tomorrow night :lol:

Okay, okay, it's actually almost stopped now! See what it does tonight, i'm wondering how high we can get tomorrow!

Snow!!!

the weather network says you lie. it says 4 degrees and raining in north van. :P

They're never right! Backyard thermometer speaks truth….that's probably warm, considering it's close to the house….I hope it doesn't cover everything up, I need another ride!

Good to see that you made it out for a ride while the rest of us were at work.

A bad day of biking is always better than a good day at work. Hee, hee.

I'll have to text BEFORE I leave for a ride.

Winter 2010 Downed Trees thread

There's a tree down on the Baden Powell on Fromme after the hiking and biking parts of the trail split, on the part labelled as "new bike route" just before you hit Mountain Highway. Not that big, but still attached to the ground and not going anywhere for me without tools tonight.

This one is resting on top of those wires, too.

Winter 2010 Downed Trees thread

Since you asked…hiked some of the lower trails on Fromme last night. There are a few trees down on the Griffin switchbacks. Or it may have been 1 tree that blocked the trail in a few spots. Sorry, we couldn't move em!

Yeah, it seems to be one thick tree across the trail in 2 places with lots of branches.
It's probably 8 or 10 inches thick, might need bigger than a pruning saw. I'll give it a go if I get out again tomorrow.

Celebrity Sighting

I saw Wade talking to Digger in the Lynn Valley Save-On today. Smiled knowingly…looked for other similarly star-struck incognito mountain bikers getting their groceries, couldn't tell if anyone else was noticing them chatting between the vegetables and the check-out. I was dying to eavesdrop!

Just got back from 5th switchback to Crinkum (had to push the last couple hundred metres or so) and, well, there was snow! The first part was deep and mushy, and I was pretty useless, but by the rollovers, it got a bit better and mostly rideable after that. One other set of tracks in front of me. Down lower there were lots of open patches and the bit of snow was more crusty.
So, not a bad ride! Got in a little downhill fix.

Addition to Stix n stones

There are bears in the neighborhood fairly regularly. I think it was last year that there were reports of a cougar that had come down into lower Seymour area, but that's not the norm.

I'd be more concerned about getting skunked.

It's smelled pretty skunky this week!

Stix [HTML_REMOVED] Stones #1, ride east to Cardiac bypass, down S [HTML_REMOVED] S #2 = killer winter training loop!

Dec. 2nd - 15th. Vote for the nsmbA - Final round for $100,000

Forward the link to friends and bikers (and in some cases both) not the board, too. We really need to bump up the votes.
