As luck would have it we woke up to a white Christmas. After the presents and everyone was ensconced in their electronic distractions I headed out to Upper Paugussett State Forest to take advantage of the perfect conditions for riding in the snow. We got around 3 inches of snow and it was light and fluffy but still grippy.
Not sure if there would be any hunters so I wore all orange just to be safe. It was around 29 degrees but the wind made it feel even colder. Wearing just a t-shirt, long sleeve thermal, and a riding jacket was the perfect combination of attire.
Turns out I wasn't the only one riding a fat bike this morning.
Still, riding the Gussy was superb.
I finally explored an extension to the reach around.
It needs some more thinking.
Riding back on Double Secret Probation I found a tree had come down across the trail.
The dirt was so fresh that I think it came down 5 or 10 minutes before I got there!
Before exiting the forest I met up with a runner who rides here a lot.
