A fantastic 130 mile day, and while the iron mtn trail backwards at mile 110 is something of a killa it's alllll good. FREEDOM!!

Freedom for sure, Lucky. Things cleared off this afternoon enough for a sesh.







There you have it: skateboarding is a crime.

I hope this winter isn't like last winter. It's not looking so good.

The forecast for riding is looking not that great. I've gotten a bunch of quality pedal power in of late. I bagged a single digit (9 F) commute to a paying gig in this morning. Time to start something with knobbies* and go for a damn ride. File flight plan with Layla, gas up at the head shop, and rip it out John's River. There were motorcyclists in the parking lot. There is hope.

Trail 4 or the Australian luge course?





Running water should be approached with caution.







Waxing moon and big rock









Even if there were a $100 bill on top of this rock today, I would need a boost. Someone else made the same decision. Nebokasnc would have jumped out there like he was in the lunch line.

Down sweater: I highly recommend it.





Burke County, North Carolina, USA, NORTH AMERICA!

This downhill run onto the bridge was a bit sketchy.

Brown Mountain

Trail 1 was pretty tough. There were a few sections I had to take more than one crack at.


Trail 4 was a no go for me. The 4 wheelers motored right up it.





The slickrock overlook.




I think a cushioned hub would make this snow business easier.




There were other crazies out there as well. The 300 had trouble getting started while the 450 rolled off with no problem.

About 5 inches of snow today.






It sleeted, then rained, then turned back to snow. Be careful out there.

I'm glad to see that somebody has been having fun with the snow and ice.

Sympa dans la neige en velo.

Broken trail.
