Just for kicks thought about riding the snowmobile trails from home to in-laws house, about 75 miles. I knew it was going to get too warm to ride the whole way on snow, but still want to get in as much as possible.
Took off a bit after 8AM on Good Friday (day off for me)...Easter Weekend. My wife had to work so she was going to meet me at her folks place for dinner. I have all day to play.
Out along the trail.
After the weekend rains we still have cold nights and chilly days with plenty of sun. Some melted snow/ice covered local snowmobile trail made for some nice extended fat bike riding in the early morning pre-work hours. The trails are shutdown for the sleds, but I don't think the fat bikes are doing them any damage.
A bit of rain created a nice crust and with the still cold at night in the high teens, and low 30's during the day gave us a few more days of riding.
With Scott Cole, local rider, racer and Sales Manager at LBS. Didn't get a pic of us wiping out when we tried crossing an overflow that had a wide channel of run-off but only a slight crust of ice over it. We both dumped into a 6-8" deep crevasse and went sprawling across the ice....no harm no foul.
I stopped to mention I felt like we were on the set of "On Any Sunday" and Scott said he was just about to tell me the same thing!
For me is was the end of the movie in the sand, for Scott it was the beginning with the kids bombing on the bikes. Either way, it was interesting we both came to the same thought/movie.
