Winter buzz | The annual TC slog.

There is a constant layer of frost in my backyard that continues to remind me winter is here to stay. The mountains start opening this weekend and there are plenty of excited people in town anticipating a great season ahead!

7am:
Tom & I hit the road bound for Treble Cone’s access road. Maybe we should’ve ridden from town but our coffees would spill.

7:30:
With a very short warm-up, we ride from the TC arch and start shedding layers…

She gets a bit slick. Snow and ice on the road meant we had to be clever where we rode and accept that the granny gear was there to stay.

We made it to Treble Cone

8:45
We arrive at the TC base area! Cafe not open yet so we indulge on snacks and revel in the moment. It’s a beautiful morning.

9am
It takes us just a few minutes to reach the bottom of the road, brake pads are pretty much disintegrated and we have massive smiles.
