nordic skiing, the biking for the snow-afflicted!



We've got another 6" on top of that, unfortunately, the last 1" is ice, so I've got my fingers crossed for the advrider of the sled variety to come help my tracks.

You know how nice it makes you feel when a cute girl comes in for spin shoes and she's absolutely STOKED that you helped her out with em? You know how quickly that feeling goes sideways when she mentions 'her other half?' Yeah, just happened here.

I think they call the first part "warm and fuzzy" and the second part "reality".

you know of course when they say that, that they sensed your attraction and decided to throw the wet towel on it before it gets anywhere....

They only throw the wet towel on it after they have gotten what they want,not what you might have been dreaming of.

That particular dream was definitely x-rated.

oddly enough considering how many widely varied bicycles run around this part of the left coast, I don't think I've ever seen a pugsley except once in a bike shop. not much call for snowtires here, either ;D

Pugsley? Did somebody say "Pugsley?!?" I love it when I hear the word "Pugsley."

Had mine for about 4yrs now. Ride it 4mi to work on a groomed bike/ski trail almost daily each winter unless it's icy then I'll used a mt. bike with studs. Fun!

On the subject of Fatbike action, I'll be watching a couple of names in the Arrowhead 135 that commences on Jan 31st. Looks like my endurance racing hero Patrick Tsai will be out there along with a local guy I've raced against- Danny Hill.

I'm currently looking at facbook status updates from all my northern minnesota friends reporting temperatures down near -35F last night and still not creeping much beyond -15F yet today. (And this isn't including windchill!)

Not to mention I was just on the north shore last weekend and they have a *ton* of snow over there.

I'm sort of glad my fat bike plans fell through. I have a good excuse to ignore a buddy's call out this fall in which we both pledged to buy Mukluks and enter the Arrowhead 135. (Just FYI, he doesn't have a mukluk or a spot on the roster either. )
