Actually, yes, ice ruins it as well. Picked the wrong photo for the clue!

Rick, where are you?

Picked this tag just for you. Here's another clue while some of you wait for it to warm up:

New tag

Two tags last May were churches in the Carpenter Gothic style; this makes the Trinity:


It doesn't look like that in Google Streetview or Bing Bird's Eye - it was restored to it's original look in 2010 after years of being covered in crenelated stucco.

Thanks, Felipe. It was just close enough for an "extended lunch" ride.
As you might guess, the new tag isn't very far from there, and well within
Doc's stomping ground; if he doesn't get it himself, he'll no doubt berate
everyone for not going out in the rain while exclaiming "Gore-Tex!"

No Berating. Perhaps a little cajoling. Since living in Vermont for 10 years, I don't let the weather stop me from doing things outdoors. I used to ski in the rain. Nice soft surface, and never a lift line! Check out the winter ice racing threads, for instance. And snowmobiling in the cold is considered fun.

Riding in the rain is not for everyone, but if you do a road trip, you better know how to manage your gear, the lower visability, and the traction, because you will get caught in the wet stuff on occasion. Be prepared.

As far as the traction is considered, modern tires give you about 80% of the grip even in the rain. Road racers can actually drag knee in the rain, with the proper tires.

Just post the new tag early enough so that I'll have a chance to grab on the way to Highlands, NJ for the Polar Bear ride.

Should be up by about 8 a.m. Early enough? But you have to promise not to move it too far South. Not many players down there in the winter time!
