I'd sooner look at pics of your commuter, albeit covered in fluffy white frozen precipitation, than your ski's. Hey, it's just me. Ski's are just too indicative of winter.JM01 said:had to put the bigger bikes away yesterday, dusted off the winterbikes, skis and snowshoes...looks like another 15 weeks of winter fun
i'm off until the 3'rdAndrewTO said:Skiing was at... ? (yes, I stoop to even ask)
COOL! That's a nice stretch of holiday's. I gotta tough it out next week, then the last week of the year is aaaaaaaall mine.JM01 said:i'm off until the 3'rd
belated answer to your question...
we ski mostly here:
my daughter is the manager here (thats her behind the counter)...also, these ski trails link up to our local trails that we ride (you may have seen some previous pics)
cheers...merry Christmas, a safe and prosperous new year
btw...anyboby ride last night?...took me 2 hours to do the 17km commute...a real slog coming out of the humber valley!
Aaaaaah, JM, you just showed me one good reason to use Grip Shift - winter gloves. Looks like "fun".JM01 said:actually, the ski trails are OK to ride in the summer, but because they're ski trails, the layout is ski friendly and they have to be 8' wide (new grooming equipment), but there are some vey nice trails (about 40km) to the south and west that connect into these trails. The ski trails make for a nice, family type ride but have lots of sand to grind on your bike (i've learned why sandpaper is made out of sand).
Still lots of riding up here, but it's on the concessions...if you have a winterbike, its a great time to have some fun.
went out for a few hours after a 15km xc ski morning around the Nottawasaga Riiver roads:
...but three of my winterbikes have gripshifts...the only one that doesn't (one of the ones with a purple bell) rips the fingers out of my gloves...both thumbs and index fingers. again...good catch!AndrewTO said:Aaaaaah, JM, you just showed me one good reason to use Grip Shift - winter gloves.

Can you explain the whole "sand" thing? Where's it coming from? Why is it there in the first place? Or is it just the ground under the snow being "dug up" from useage? (yes, I went skiing once in my life - 20 years ago - that was enough)
