Polly Ann ride Sunday, Feb.26, 11:00am.

Looks like we may be getting some snow on Saturday an inch maybe.  Fat bikes or mtn. bikes recommended.  Last week the trail was pretty soft and wet in some spots.  Coffee at Evergreen's post ride. 

Hope to see you,


Rare winter Wednesday night gravel road ride

On Sunday's Polly Ann ride I commented to Sean and Heather that the forecast looked good for this Wednesday and that maybe we should do the Wednesday gravel road ride. Both of them liked the idea. Later, over a post-ride coffee, Heather said she couldn't make it. Hmmmm, how does that work??? 

So, Heather won't be there but maybe you can be. The forecast looks quite nice and the road report is dry with potholes and rocks. Better, perhaps, than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, and certainly better than quicksand mud on the trail. 

We'll meet at the Clarkston Independence Elementary school on Hubbard at 6:30, just like we do all season. However, this will be a very casual off-season base mile type ride. No hammering, unless you're Chris and can't help yourself from charging up hills. Lights are a necessity, and despite the road report, your bike will probably get dirty, so don't say I didn't warn ya. 

Really, have we ever done the Wednesday ride in February? Hope to see you there to mark this momentus occasion.

Polly Ann ride Sunday, Jan.29 at 11:00am.

The weather is looking good for this Sundays ride.  With the cooler temps we should have some nice frozen firm ground to ride on.  Unlike last weeks mud-fest.  Once again meeting at Evergreen's Coffee Shop in Oxford.  Meeting up at the coffee shop post ride to refuel and chit-chat.  Any questions email me at

Wednesday gravel road ride

This is it folks - the final, final Wednesday night gravel road ride. This Wednesday looks to be dry and cool. There is rain and possibly (shhhh) the "s-word" in the forecast in the next week so we better wrap this thing up.

This has been one of the best seasons for the Wednesday night gravel road ride in recent years. We continue to see a growth in attendence for this ride, which says volumes about the scenic beauty, variety of routes, and challenging hills.

This week's ride will be a wind-down. Instead of pushing the pace, we'll just be enjoying one last outdoor bike ride. C'mon out and join us, otherwise, see you next spring folks.



Depot B-Group This is a Non-Post


Weather forecast for Saturday suggests 30°F with mid-20's feel at zero mph. The 'feel' temperature is also below the dew point. I've reached my point to cry uncle and crawl indoors to my trainer.

I encourage someone else to post a ride if they choose.

Thanks for the great season!
