Orange in the Snow

Headed over to Upper Paugussett for a quick 5 miler that I normally do in about 45 minutes but the snow slowed me down considerably. The Dillinger perform excellently in the snow but then again I think just about any mountain bike would perform well. The rigid fork was a boost because it made the bike really stable and allowed me to keep better lines.

I added a fender up front which was helpful but I should had one on the rear. I had to reset my saddle twice. I am thinking it's the seat bag and the way it connects to the bike. I am going to have to try a ride or two with out and see if it makes a difference.

It's still hunting season in CT. Bells and Blaze Orange are the necessary costume. In fact, as I was exiting the forest near Sanford Rd there was a pickup parked at the trail head and it had snow on it. Same pickup I have been seeing parked here over the past month or two. By the tracks in the snow, it seems to me the hunter is focused on the Blue Trail.
