We had a big dump of snow Saturday night so of course Sunday we jumped on the Pugsleys to explore the fresh new winter wonderland that is Fishcreek Provincial Park. It was much warmer out [-4 deg to 0 deg C] than our last Pugsley mission to Fishcreek Park. Last time we were uber cold. This time it was sunny and mild with fresh snow and lots of trails to ride.
The warmer temps meant heavy sticky snow that offered excellent traction. The only problem we had was veering too far off the trail an suddenly sinking in 2′ into the deep snow that had not been packed down by foot traffic/skiis all winter.
We had a great conversation with some hikers that were also bikers and had been following our tracks from earlier in the day trying to figure out what had made them. When we doubled back to return to the C-train we ran into them and had a nice chat. Natirally a test ride enused and many smiles. Hopefully we’ve converted a couple more folks to the fat tire world. Resistance is futile!…=-)
All in in all we had a great day riding our Pugsleys. I’m really looking forward to riding bikes in shorts and t-shirts, but until that day arrives I’m going to make the best of it everytime we get some fresh snow. I may even miss winter *GASP!* when I have no snow to ride my Pugsley in this summer.
