No Moab in March. I got something...

Not going West in March... Trails are closed/ grid locked, under lock and key, or just supersaturated, gravel and randomness rule the season..

Lakeville-Milltown-Lakeville, roster posted...


Out West riddles... Yoda-Henge picking out the thorns. Circa 2006

What. No Helmet. Dangit.

How far would you retreat to get a helmet on your head?

Reflecting as I drove back the 10 miles to grab my helmet:

  • I find it interesting, some think that with snow you don't need a helmet. That you have some sort of snow cushion... I beg to differ. I'm more bruised/ battered/ broken in the winter than the other 3 seasons. 
  • It's an obvious logo, you don't ride with a helmet, you ride AROUND the good stuff... "Winter roadie"
  • I'm confident I'd have brain problems [insert pun here] had I not worn a helmet via snow biking. 
  • Worst of all. The seed is planted with no helmet on the head. "No helmet. I can't crash, I'm doomed." Guaranteed crash then. Riddle that.
Picked clean. Was it a dog? A cat? Nope. I bet Jack's spy birds...
Local trails riding fast... Felt cheated with all the coasting... That means time to bust new lines... Coasting on the Fat ain't right.

They only let 1 of us into that race yesterday... So, Horned got creative. Point.

Working on the L-M-L... Update/ roster posted soon...

Clipped in? Dummy.

Sometimes you learn the hardway... Today and 3 1/2 hours of 'push-pedal-push' was one of them. SPDs and iced snow don't mix, but the riddles of the morn went over my head.

Pulled from the junk drawer when I got home... 
Good day on the bike, good day shuffling the bike, good day hacking at the shimano ice balls used to soft pedal the bike... Those up front had the same pedal deal, so really I'm just a hack on the day.

High Point- CF Dan with the jedi driving skills.

High Point- The "Extreme Novice" makes His debut... (Jack and le Goat set the hook, ha)

Low Point- Passing a gassed/ kneed but will not submit Jim. Nice work James.

High Point- Getting dropped by Horned on lap 2 after thinkin I had em on Lap 1. ha!

High Point- Handing Freewheel Kevin a gel.

High Point- Finished, no idea of placing, but was not cheated.

Thanks to City of Elk River, Richy, Sue & Dirtworks, Sponsors... The first (winter MTB series) of a kind... Richy had the mojo on lap 1.

NOTE: 3 spots left for LML. See link on the side. Moto-Young, you know what you need to do with that $100 in your pocket.

LCR Log Man Down/ LML Update

What we do... 

Another Moss Log. This one isn't Randy, Santana Moss.

Dr says "Heal boy. Heal. Stay away 3-6 weeks."

Jimbo asking about indoor trainers. ha 

LML Update; Was at 40 headcount, had to subtract one. Squirrels migrate south to Mexico mid March. I have people asking fatbike worthy. Whynot. I can always make a fatbike class, my rules.

Tulip pointer, a wet sheet of paper is useless. 

Interested? Link is on the side...
