We were out on the Blue Ridge Parkway last Winter looking for enough snow to ski in but ended up walking instead. We heard some noise and looked around to see these folks enjoying the heck out of themselves:

They were two older couples (nearing 70, they said) just out for the day seeing what they could see. All had knobbies on the drive wheels and said they had no issues at all with the six inches of wet snow. The BRP was closed but they had snuck up some fire road and gotten on it for a bit of touring. It was about 25 degrees out and they said they weren't going fast enough to get cold because of the snow. We saw them at about 3:00PM and they'd been riding since about 9:00AM, how cool is that? I hope to still be out fooling around like that when I'm that age (not long to go ).

Cool rides, great ride report.
