The Winter of 2017 - Please End

It has been a very long a non-typical winter in Corvallis this year.  For example, the normal average rain fall for February at the Portland Airport is 3".  This past February they got over 10".  Here in Corvallis has been no different.  We have received large amounts of rain and even snow (on more than one occasion) at higher elevations.  This along with the "appears" to be "targeted logging" of areas where non-official trails live and the closing of Starker land has really created a miserable time of riding.

With that said, there have been bright spots.  Riding in the snow is unique and fun (until it gets to deep or iced over).  Some of the trails have held up well and provide great "muddy" conditions that are rideable. Sometimes you just need to get out and ride "Dan's and Horse" just to get out. It is getting lighter longer and Spring is almost here, which means Summer is just around the corner!


  1. I really adore mountain biking in the winter. Perhaps this needs to do with the way that I really restored my association with riding bicycles amidst winter on a fat bicycle, starting the fixation that has improved my life in such a large number of ways. Or, on the other hand possibly it's that I simply appreciate getting outside and being dynamic in all seasons and climate conditions. Whatever the reason, winter riding really holds an extraordinary place in my heart. While it might appear to be scaring to a few people, it's truly not that difficult to get out there wide open to the harshe elements and do it.

  2. I was astounded at the horde of trail blazing bicycles out there to entice all dimensions of capacity and positively all sizes of wallet. I confess to being confounded around then with respect to where to begin and I expect I was not, at that point or now, the just one.
