Hey guys and gals. Goin to get in the woods tomorrow. I wanted to know what parks will be rideable. I'm thinking the best would probably be Hartshorne but just curious what everything looks like. Let me know...
You live in town and don't know Waway? :getsome: No problem man I know that place well. That stinks that more didn't turn out. I figured I'd see somebody in the trails or at least in the parking lot leaving but nothing. I figured you all bagged the ride. It was ok in the trails, studs would have been a great benefit but they were on the other bike... I'll keep ya posted for the next time I get up there.
Well I decided to head up to Wawayanda figuring that it might be one of the more solid parks but I didn't realize that it had that much snow. It was crunchy in spots and a sheet of ice in other spots. The fire roads were down right glacial. Most of the ice had a nice texture on it so it was still rideable but the stuff that was either in the shadows or was melting faster could serve as a nice slip and slide. I got practice sliding on my side in a few spots. Still went in and did all the good stuff - Rattlesnake, Pickle, Pines and it really wasn't too bad. Just slushy and a little annoying in spots. Got 2:15 in anyway. I was hoping we'd run into the group that was out this morning and didn't see anyone. Did anyone show?
I did Wayway early (7am) Saturday and learned a thing or two about riding on ice from Dave (Panhead). A humbling experience not only cause I fell a bunch (a fall by the dam was especially brutal), but because Dave blew me away, hammering through seemingly impossibly icy trails and up hills with aplumb--on a single speed no less! Well, it was a 29er.
