I organized a winter mountain bike trip to Ionia State Recreation Area, as our training over the holiday break was sporadically-attended and -scheduled. The last time I rode in the snow it was a terrific workout, and the trails were passable. We aborted the trip on this occasion, due to the inpassability of the crusty, deep snow. Nevertheless, despite the frigid temperatures and the trail conditions, the sun was shining and our workout was arrived at by running and pushing our bikes back to the van. And, judging by the turnout of 2 wrestlers in the cold and snow, there will be more bike events in the spring, summer, and fall.
