    Does MS handle the rain well enough to roll it in the morning? I want or ride and would like to avoid riding roadie unless I have to.

    True that! have SSd MS in a dead rain..do think it's been so dry might be some new ruts.

    Same time if tried B* you would gather enough clay to stop your wheels

    I'm probably riding MS tomorrow.

    Woke up to a dusting of snow and a high of 41 degrees in my part of the world. Not too excited about hitting the trails today...:(:mad:

    The Wundermap shows 30s all around down here in south OC, but I'm not going to complain! My mother and very cranky brothers were in the low teens yesterday with a windchill near -20.

    I'm having my coffee, and then I'm going to drag my fat behind to the elliptical and maybe a spin on the stationary bike. And then it's Star Wars time!

    I saw the UPS guy on a bike and trailer the other day! image.jpg He's a seasonal employee and is not required to wear a helmet. His rig was provided to him by UPS...the rear of the trailer was dragging on the ground, and by the time he got to my house, the thing fell apart. His rear axle was destroyed. I gave him a [used] helmet for Christmas but didn't have a 9mm rear axle to repair his bike. I guess living the dream requires decent equipment.image.jpeg

    That is insane. All of our bicycle delivery personnel are provided a helmet. I have a bike and trailer at my house that I make sure is ready to go every day.

    I am going to propose a bad weather ride next time the cosmic alignment gives me bad weather and time off together. It will be a real mtb ride, with rain, wind, cold, and misery. Afterwards there will be a fire and jovial comradery as we stand around trying to get the feeling back in out feet and hands.
    Obviously, it will be last minute and everyone is invited. Bring your woolies!

    Doods, the OC is looking to get dusted up top, over a foot even?:




    We try to get up there when this happens, and we've had some of the best rides doing it. Sunday AM looks to be primetime, and I'll bet tracks (boot, XC ski) will already be up there from Saturday.

    Most likely we take our bikes up until we have to stash them and boot up to the summit.

    Looks like Friday might be the only day the rest of the week to ride while not being precipitated on.
    The trip to Santiago Peak on Sunday should be great for a white Christmas. Enjoy!

    Agree, Friday and Sunday look to be the days...ahem, nudge nudge : )

    I'm pretty skeptical about big snow accumulations on Santiago...low expectations may lead to pleasant surprises.

    Dave, let us know when you wanna hit Dingdong from the bottom. I put my ex-Bronson front wheel on Moria's 5.Spot, and she instantly got better and more aggro. :sneaky:

    Always a good sign when the ponds are overflowing at the golf course next to my office.

    I am "those guys".....and yes it sucks major monkey balls to have to navigate around jobsites that are that wet and muddy.....since it is actually way worse than it looks from there.

    Definitely sucks and dangerous! I worked construction in Boston to pay my bills during college and the weather there isn't ideal. Good luck out there!

    I worked in hot mop roofing for awhile, and it sucked because you didn't get paid when it rains - you either went home or had to fix tools or a truck.
