The first significant snowfall and overnight freeze occurred yesterday night. Time to start the winter mountain biking season at Puslinch Tract with a Sunday morning ride.
Bike was still equipped in summer mode with a 33:16 gear ratio and a Maxxis Hookworm 2.5" rear tire. It's a fun tire, but definitely a poor choice for snow. It's heavy, and it slides around too much in the snow. Nonetheless, it was great to get out on the trails again.
Weather was fantastic with clear blue skies and a temperature of -10 °C.
Trails were covered with a couple millimeters of snow and the ground was frozen. Ice was minimal and easily visible.
Lots of cyclists and hikers were arriving at the west parking lot, late in the morning.
