Ride Cancelled

Thursday, March 24, 2016

Looking at the forecast for this Thursday, I am not inspired to post a ride. Temperatures will be about the freezing mark with snow and ice pellets. Without enough snow on the ground I can't even post a ThursdaySki! What to do????? Get out the microspikes, again.

Tune in next week for another chance for a March bike ride!

Bear Notch Road is still not quite ready for biking. The Thursday ride last week brought us to the gate area to look at the situation. Bill took some photos of us on the snow, ice and pavement mix. On Saturday I microspiked up to the top to investigate further. There are sections of ice and snow, also some sunny sections that are dry pavement. With the cold weather and snow lately, not much more is melting away. Maybe next week....

Bartlett Village Easy First Ride of 2016, 10:00 am

Thursday, March 17th,

The forecast looks like we might be able to get a short ride in the morning. I think it is worth a try!

If you are not skiing at Attitash, get the bike out!

Meet at the far end of the Attitiash parking lot at 10:00 am for a ride to Bartlett Village, River Road. Total miles will be about 18. We can take a look at the former site of the Bartlett Peg Company that burned down a few weeks ago, and also take a look at Bear Notch Road to see how the snow and ice is doing. Last report was that it was not ready for biking, but a few nice days have passed since then.

The forecast show spotty showers all day. Most forecasts indicate that the morning will be fine, one shows a possibility of a shower late morning. Rain will cancel this ride, and I will post a cancellation. If it looks good we could get a short ride in!

On Vacation

Thursday, March 10. 2016

ThursdaySki is on vacation up in the Great White North. There is a ton of snow up here, and skiing is excellent!

From the weather reports at home it seems to me that it is time to change ThursdaySki back to ThursdayBike. Check this blog for a possible bike ride next Thursday. I will look for a place that has minimal sand and no salt on the road.

See you next week!!

Bear Notch Ski Touring 11:00 am

Thursday, March 3, 2016

We are back up and skiing!! Another good snow event that will allow us to ski on white instead of icy grey!!

Meet at Bear Notch at 11:00 am. This slightly later time will allow the temperature to go up a bit and the trails to be groomed.  Bring skate and/or classic skis, either will work!! Bring your dog, too, if you like!
