I was able to get out for a wonderful ride in the snow today. After a very warm winter up until now, we’re finally getting some January temperatures. When I headed out this afternoon the air temp was 12F/-11C degrees with a windchill in the negative numbers. That’s my kind of weather. What little snow we have has firmed up a bit and the trails are becoming much more ride-able.
The bonus for getting out today was a hint of sunshine trying to peak through clouds. Clouds that appeared to be trying to break up.
My destination was Brewers Park. Not really a park. Until last year it had no infrastructure. It’s city owned open, wooded space on the hillside above Duluth. In 2014 mountain bike trails were laid down in the “park”. It’s only an 1 mile ride uphill from my house.
It was a nice outing on the bike. Here’s some more pictures I took today:
Beautiful light. I’m convinced that if I moved up there, I’d learn how to dress for that weather so I could experience that light first hand.
Beautiful day for a ride. Do you usually see other bikers on the trails in the winter, or do you have them all to yourself?
I usually see a few. Today I saw two others. Back when I bought this bike in 2006, it was 5 years before I saw another fatbike out on the trails I rode.
Thanks for the reply. I’ve always wondered how many are using the trails in winter. What a treat to have so many beautiful trails right out your door.
