Since it looks as though we'll have some new snow this week--Yay!--I thought we might check out a new trail: Cowles Park in East Granby. Here's a map (Yes, I know the map is drawn in crayon. It's a very good map.) Does anyone know if the parking area for Cowles Park is cleared?

the parking lot is cleared

I was hoping to feel better today but am still sick so another it's another missed opportunity. Have fun. Hope to see you next week.

I'm dealing with some residual bronchitis as well and will likely skip tonight. Might do a some local snowshoeing with Maria (who also has a cold) and Kona (who needs a bath) this weekend, time permitting. There is no shortage of snow for the foreseeable future.

I'll join ya, but have to ask the same question as last week. Where will we drink beer after ? Anyone interested in pizza as an alternative? And, if anyone wants to ride with me, I will be glad to drive

How about here? Or, better still, here!

If anyone Stravas this and cares to post a link afterwards it would be much appreciated. As of a couple days ago I don't think it had seen enough traffic to warrant taking a fat bike out, but I have faith you guys can change that!

FWIW here's a loop I rode in January before the snow really set in. You could cut off a mile or two by leaving off the loop at the bottom (I did it twice), but could easily add more up on the ridge if you were so inclined.

I was planning on snowshoeing this week, just to be clear. (But if anyone wants to take a fat bike out, you're welcome to.)

Oops, maybe I should have been more clear- I'm thinking about riding there tomorrow, so am curious what kind of tracks you guys put down tonight.

where are we meeting? I need an address or something. Thanks
