Jefferson County Trail - December

Thursday MTB Ride Notes (last Thursday):
Overall the loop trail was easily passable, little to no snow. The snow is worst in the wooded spots, which seems strange because these are usually have the least snow. JC Park is in similar condition, quite passable. The main problem is the pedestrian pack-down (rhymes with Friday Night Smack-Down). It makes for a rougher ride, but it's not bad right now, because there is very little snow on the ground (except for 2 or 3 drifts on the Northern ridgeline of the loop trail).

As an aside, I'd like to say I'm impressed with the amount of pedestrian traffic that has passed over several quite cold days. The loop trail and JC Park are very popular and well used.

A loop trail bonus is the Southern cross (Lamson wood to cedar view trail, paralleling the 34 by-pass). Almost no difference from normal. Pristine and fast, negligible snow, excellent traction.
Southern Cross Hint -- if it's seriously cold, then just take the direction which gives you a tail wind; you'll stay quite warm and get 3 primo hills. Five stars.

Ride Safe!

Touring & commuting...

...a different type of cycling.

An inexpensive way to take a staycation.

Do you remember when we were children, first learning to ride a bicycle? It expanded your world. Why not load your stuff up on a bike and just go?
