I woke up around 7 30 this morning, and as soon as I saw that the temperature was above -20 celcius, I knew it was time for a Muni. I got to the trails around 8 30, and started the hike up the hills. Once at the top, which comes up to a pipeline, i got on the skidoo trails. They were superb!!! Last weekend they were all fluffy and deep, not very friendly for a wheel. But now, they are hard packed, and it’s just like riding on a sidewalk. I rode up the pipeline, and made my way towards the local ski hill. There are awesome single track trails that run parallel to the hill, and they are some fast, with just enough technical areas to keep it interesting. I rode those trails for a couple hours, then headed back towards the pipeline. I rode down it, which is not really steep, but a nice flow. Near the bottom, it gets extremely steep, and you get one last blast of speed before the bottom. After all that, I was feeling a burn, but I went up for one more ride down what Brian MacKenzie calls, the Tim-Buster. A fairly fast hill with a few fun jumps and drops. Always a good end to a ride.
So there it is. Sure is nice to start my weekend with an awesome winter muni ride.
