First Ride of the Pig (the year)

10:30am Sunday February 10 – King Eddy Road

Looks like the weather is warming a bit, let’s get out on the King Eddy trails. Snow should be pretty solid with the recent cold weather, but will we be able to ride all the trails?

Ride starts at 10:30am, don’t be late!

Winter riding conditions with a forecasted high of -3 degrees and partly sunny (as of Wednesday night). Bring winter riding gear and be mindful of covering exposed skin to reduce the risk of frostbite. There will be a lunch fire to warm up and cook your lunch.

Ride Recap

The forecasted high of -3 degrees never materialized but a big group of riders did so we headed for the hills to enjoy a brisk but sunny Sunday in the forest.

We stopped at King Eddy for a perfect box fire courtesy of Steve’s mad skills then continued on to the tower above Damer Lake. Only a few made it up the tower road but then they proceeded to get stuck on the wind drifted snow.

Marc and Janelle were busy performing towing duties with the RZR on tracks and Jeremy was having fun on his sled showing us how it’s really done in the snow.
