I've been riding this beast almost exclusively for the last few weeks enjoying it's midfatness on the little snow we do have. The $30 pogies have continue to serve me well, even after 7 years. I was riding at -5 F this afternoon with my bare hands in them for the last 5 miles of my ride.
More exciting than snow has been the overflow from frozen streams around town. I came upon this immediately after leaving the house yesterday. An ice damn in a culvert had water flowing out down the road in single digit temperatures. A couple of trails around town have had a some significant overflow issues on and off over the past few weeks. In a very dorky way, I really enjoy the dynamics of water and ice.
Spotted this guy just off the trail riding to school today,
then heard something behind me and noticed I'd parked my bike right between the two bulls. Fortunately the were mellow and disinterested in my existence.
