When the Trails Are Unrideable

Unless you live in arid sunny climates and/or southern latitudes then winter is a real thing. Depending on where you live "winter" can mean different things ... from meters of snows to unrideable rain-saturated trails. Either way, riding can come to a screeching halt. While winters in the Pacific Northwest are generally wet and dark last winter was snowy which meant we weren't able to ride for months at our favorite local trails. So what do you do when the weather turns bad and the trails are unrideable?

Shoulder Season

I moved away from the desert this year ... two hours north and 3,000 feet higher. There hasn't been a single regret. Daylight brings unspeakable vistas. Night reveals new clarity previously shrouded by the light pollution of my former city. The air in this new place stinks of adventure.
