The Frozen Lake Ride

Hooked up with Lubes, Spike and Velo Steve for a little snow riding Saturday on the Stone House Trail and Bear Creek Lake Park. Riding was good n powdery and the Lake was frozen solid enough that we rode out to the center and played around while the ice fisherman looked on like we were crazy....something could be said for those folks as well but we all do what we love.

Lubes claims they're some sort of static hand warmer. I believe he drinks the contents(most likely shine from the east coast), and lives vicariously through the warming liquids.
