New Trails

A beautiful day for riding. Highs in the 70s and the trails are now mostly dry. Hard to believe that a week ago we were digging out from the snow. We've been using a few new/rediscovered trails lately. The Mormon Trail to Crack-a-Lack to First Way to Reaper's Ridge is an awesome route to include. I've been doing more riding than picture taking . . . sorry folks. I'm hoping to take some time on Friday and take some better pics of the previously mentioned sections.

Fall is Back!

After the snowfall last weekend, thoughts of an unfortunate early end to the riding season were everywhere. Fortunately, everything has thawed and the fall riding is back in force. Not a whole lot else to say. Ride while you can.

Ballyhoo Report

The weather forecast called for 1-2 inches of snow for Ballyhoo Weekend. Although some folks bailed at the thought of the white stuff, a number of intrepid souls continued on. The weather on Friday was beautiful and the night ride was epic as snow started to fall about a third of the way into the ride. Eight riders, lights blazing into the snow as we dropped down chutes and climbed over ridges . . . amazing. The 1-2 inches turned out to be 10-14 inches and we were all caught off guard . . . except for the Minnesota dudes who were walking around in their snowmobile suits.

Here are a few before and after pics of the event. Chad should have a few to post as well. If others have pics, send them to Chad or myself and we'll get them posted.

The pancake breakfast was one to remember.

The guys from Cycle Works in Lincoln were great guys and troopers to make it out and join in the festivities. If you are in Lincoln stop by and drop a few bucks at the shop. These guys "get it".
