edit: I just looked at a Ned cam and it didn't look like snow Is it snowing in Pinewood?
It started snowing in Ned, according to the Weather Channel, just as it started getting dark. We have only had drizzle here in Pinewood - it is pretty warm. I suspect there will be pockets of snow, ice, and dry on the P2P tomorrow but it should melt fast unless something dramatic happens tonight. Supposedly the bigger round that will bring snow is due in tomorrow night or Monday.

I did see on the Eldorado webcam before it got dark that it was snowing.

Since the Switz isn't the main attraction and we're likely to ride lower....the 310 gets the day off.
Maybe a weekend of camping at Four Mile is in order soon

I'm gonna say I'm out. I am bringing my son climbing in the morning and probably ride my mountain bike in the afternoon.

It only snowed about 1/4" here in Ned. With a 46* forecast for tomorrow it should be melted before 10am.

I had a great time, Thank you so very much everyone. And as usual on a Lomax ride half the group got lost. Until we met up in Nederland right at the roundabout, that was hilarious.

A great group of big pigs. Nice to meet some new people.





Switzerland trail had quite a bit of snow on it.



It was a lot slicker and snowier that I expected. A little video.

I'm glad you guys had a good time. I was gonna join you but when I awoke at 4am there was ice on my road. It stayed there past my first Bloody Mary at 7am. By then it was light enough to start working on my project.

I hope to ride more in the summer...

Cheers

You would have enjoyed seeing Terry's GS do a nice (quick) donut on the hill leaving Gold Hill before taking a brief icenap.

I would have given a dollar to see that bald-tired CB550 trying to make it up that hill too

Hey! The wear bars were barely showing. I at least qualified with the bad tires part.

Teri, Blake and the "Little Pig" with the near bald rear tire waiting so as to time our meeting up at the round-a-bout with the other half in Nederland.

I was just using the nice slick conditions to practice doing donuts on the big GS.
