In memory of the fallen

Found on Speedway singletrack, Sunday afternoon

The Hillside has something in common with the moon this week: impact craters. The only difference is that the local craters aren't round. They're shaped like bikes. And bodies.

It seems to be taking a little longer than usual to get last week's powder packed down into fast singletrack, but the snow beside many trails bears the proof that fat-bikers are trying.

It can be frustrating to ride trails after a snowstorm. But just remember, the landings are a lot softer than they'll be three months from now.

I skied Blue Dot for the second time since the last snowfall. Doesn't look like anyone has biked the entire trail... but saw signs of pushing, for sure. With over a foot of snow, it's taking awhile to get things packed down.

Maybe needs a little snowshoe action...

Blue Dot has been snowshoed (at least the southern end), and the other trails I've ridden in recent days are all reasonably wide and smoothed out. They just need traffic to pack the snow better, and that means fat bikes.
