    We will return

    Everyday is a winding road........

    I'll tell ya. It's been a lot simpler than I thought to do this ride. The truly hardest thing is leaving, freeing yourself up to actually go.

    Got out on the sled today...and clipped a big tree :eek1 Bent the left trailing arm but looks like it will still hold for the rest of the season...no kinks or cracks in it! Wild day of sledding :evil

    Just thought I would post a photo or two to take our minds off the weather and remember what summer riding is all about.

    Took this photo near the top of the Bear Tooth Pass last August.

    Greg did you see the sign up there? It points to the far ridge where a sharp rock juts up " the Bears Tooth"

    Nice shots BackRoader! Only two more months to go and we can ride again :wink:

    My bikes are ready to ride and I hope it's soon cause the sled is taking a beating!

    It's not too bad here, in town anyway. A dusting of snow, that's blowing around.

    Maybe I'll go out and look longingly at my bikes, and make "vroom vroom" sounds.

    Sorry to interject, but the Winnipeg riders are planning an ADV brunch this Sunday at CanadInns Polo Park at around 11am. I thought I'd mention it in this thread to see if anyone here would like to join us! :freaky

    Thanks for the offer Mel...won't be able to make it though. Plan on, or at least hoping on making it to the Peg near the end of April...if the snow's gone :lol3

    Also, can't make it this time. I might fly up sometime just to visit people.

    Too bad Porter doesn't fly that way. Way cheaper.
