Wow just checked the standings:

Elite - four competitors over 100 hrs, anyone's game at this point. I gotta get over 100 this week to not look like a total schlub.

Mortal - @Mtbdog almost at 100 pts but @Johnny Utah is giving him a run for his money

Finally in the war of the geezers, @thegock seems to have collapsed 😲

Gravel/fire road exploring with teammate up in Ringwood. Some nice wide sheets of ice from the melt/re-freeze we had this past week but was a good intro to more rocky technical riding as he'll be getting into MTB racing this season (already reg'd for ST #1!!!). There's a lot more roads I'd like to explore up in that area when I get the time and weather cooperates.

i usually take the west side/Henry Hudson Greenway uptown from WTC but after talking with a friend at work, i wanted to ride up the east side again (hadn't done so in a while).

now i know why...it's a mess. potholes, narrow passages, bike lane spotaneously disappears...it's everything everyone hates about riding a bike in NYC

all that said, there are some cool views from that path...

not nearly as much snow as i had hoped for (though it looks like it's coming down pretty good as i type this! go figure)

anyways, still managed to make a nice local loop-ish out of it...

i passed two patrol cars on my up through the power lines, they were not concerned with my presence...they left their marks...

I am bummed to have missed a snow ride yesterday, my first missed snow of the year. Kids had a snow day and sledding won the morning battle. The temps rose so much in the afternoon that trails were out.

Sledding pics bonus

I bet that smelled good enough to bring out the hibernating bear, oh wait, maybe no bear at High Mountain.
