Snow Going

Lots of fresh snow last night – 9-10″. Slow going, but I had to see how / where I could ride. It was almost easier to ride where no one had walked or skied…

The marks to the left and right of my track are from my pedals.

Probably put in 6 miles tops. 1/2 on the lakefront path and in the woods, then I bailed to local streets to get home and do my core / back strengthening routine of shoveling out. I started off with 8 psi in the tires and was down to maybe 4 by the time I took to the street. I should have added air – it was pretty slow going on the pavement.

    That’s when it’s nice to have a triple. 🙂

    22×32 for most of my ride this morning!

  3. As a connoisseur of snow prints, I must say: the pedal strikes are fantastic. Like a picture book of the journey.

    My rule of thumb is, when the pedals are hitting the snow, it’s time to park the Pugsley and get out the snowshoes.

    That is just awesome.

    looks like the track of large tailed beast – maybe a snow dragon.

    Maybe you could carry a mini-compressor for quick inflations! 😉

    What sort of pump do you use for those tires? CO2?

    My Lezyne M drive has been working great. 25 or so pumps for 5 psi.
