    Default Snow Ride! 2/23/12 @ 6 - GRB

    ... WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING...

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN QUAD CITIES HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WATCH... WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING.

    * TIMING... MUCH OF THURSDAY INTO THURSDAY EVENING.

    * SNOWFALL... WET SNOW OF 4 TO 8 INCHES WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE.

    This may be the first and last chance this year to play in any real snow! The plan is to meet at Great River Brewery at 6ish, ride till we don't wanna anymore, and head back to GRB to warm up.

    If the weathermen are wrong and we don't get a decent accumulation, the ride likely won't happen, so check back here before heading out.

    As always: Fat bikes encouraged, skinny bikes welcome, good attitudes required.

    12psi?! You must weigh 90lbs! Let us know when you can run 5psi then we might consider it fat

    Ya know that Ardent isn't a bad size. I'd call it sub-fat...

    come on, snow!!

    1 good last ride in some nice wet snow and then lets get the temps to 70 and dry stuff up!!

    Believe in yourself? Well sure, of course. But be aware that "believing in myself" has been the root cause of most of my injuries.
