    The elbow is good now, thanks.

    We should have the shop open in about two weeks.

    The Party is set for mid Januaryish. I need to check a few things before the date is set.

    Very good photos. I am thinking of seeing what Catheys Creek is like in December. I saw that you turned around when it became a bit more remote. I am the same way. I ride by myself mostly and I adhere to the rule of never going off somewhere that presents a problem for others to get you out. Nevertheless, I will see what it is like this coming weekend (12/7-8/2013).

    I wish... but we have company this weekend :beer and I am overdue in helping at the shop too....

    Catheys Creek is perfectly fine all year around (unless ice) - but I seem to remember something about being closed a few weeks back. :ear Bueller, Bueller, Anybody?

    It was snowing for a bit a couple of weeks ago, but today we were in the 60th :huh... and wet. Supposed to go down to 28 during the day by next week, so I had to take advantage of the temps :deal

    I figured I will be gone a while, so I started with a bit pre-ride prep work:

    well, by the time I was dressed and had the bike moved out, it started to rain... :bluduh so I didn't actually leave till 3 in the afternoon - still enough time for a little 65 mile loop
