But on the bright side (or brown, depending on how you look at it) the bike trails are riding great. A hell of a lot better than the 2 white strips of ski trails we've got right now. The past few weekends have been filled with riding the brown pow on all of our favorite trails. Breaking in the new fleet of Farleys to see just how fast the tires can rail corners, stomp drops, and climb through thick blankets of leaves. Everything we would normally be doing- in October.
Last week's Global Fat Day events a the Catamount Outdoor Family Center brought more than 3 times the traffic as last year. Apparently it's more inviting for the masses to ride in 50 degree sunshine than 20 degree snow. Our ride this year was much longer, thanks to a scavenger hunt poker race and bottle of Fireball. We couldn't have asked for a better day to roll fatties with friends and explore some un-familiar trails. Thanks to the Fellowship of the Wheel for hosting such an awesome event!
It's a strange December when we've got way more miles on trail than ski runs under our belt. But one thing holds true: FARLEY DON"T CARE!
