Snow Biking Season Begins at Guelph Lake (11/18/14)

The snow started falling on November 17, 2014 and the temperature remained slightly below freezing. Unofficially, this marked the start of the 2014/15 snow biking season!

Fortunately today’s temperature was a high of -7 °C. Since road conditions were poor, a trip was made to Guelph Lake!
