    Tourne wasn't too bad but the dog walkers haven't gotten to all of the trails yet.. Probably by the end of the weekend 20170318_084434.jpg

    Probably would not have made much difference where I rode today... The unpacked snow was too deep and heavy to push through and the packed stuff was hard enough to ride a cx bike on

    There was some magic snow in spots but some areas were very tough today.

    Ringwood had mixed results. Only fire roads where 4x4's or snowmobiles pack the snow down are ride able. Singletrack was still untouched. If it was just snowmobile tracks, the snow was still pretty soft underneath so some hike-a-bike. However when we got to Pierson's ridge we tried airing down and it was mostly fun and ride able headed back down. Probably a combination of lower tire pressures and speed.

    Nice and hard where the water washed up hours before. I thought it may be better closer to the water but it was spongey. It was easier then I thought, but still kinda hard. Couldn't imagine in the summer when the sand is much softer and all the foot prints. But I'll be out there. This is from Spring Lake southend boardwalk. And I rode up to the second pavilion and back. About 3 miles. 5psi rear, 4 psi front.

    I mean define something to write home about. I was OK. Riding north, ur into the wind, coming south, it's at ur back. No one was on the beach. Nice and flat and hard/crunchy. So I can't imagine it would ever be anything to write home about. I didn't ride up on a suitcase full cash or some drug dealers cocaine shipment. LOL

    Rutgers was 90% good this morning. Was getting pretty soft around Noon and I ended up with no psi to get traction.

    The beach was the usual snorfest, but better than riding on the street

    It is boring isn't it? I keep hoping I'm gonna roll up on someone's Rolex or diamond ring from the summer. LOL

    It would probably still be attached to an arm
