Another round of crusty conditions! An early ride out at Perch Pond / Swans trails this morning while everything was nice and solid on bulletproof crust. Certainly the trails that were untouched since the snowstorm were the best - which included Long Way Home, 100 Acre Woods, and 9 to 5. You can also ride on the side of trails that have been tracked up - especially the wide trails. It looks like today the conditions will turn soft again and we won't see stuff firm up again until Thursday night - but this weekend and next week have good potential for some great riding! ...

Some fun on the crust early this morning - dirt piles, log piles, and fast trails! Good chance it will be good riding once it freezes up again! ...

Fat Bikers! Looking for recommended mini tire pump and mount that I can buy for my fat bike.

(I'm guessing moving big amounts of air is desirable)

I need to practice my bike mechanic skills. Any locals have an old junker I could take off your hands? :-) ...

The Essex Woods Fat Bike Race and Essex Woods Frozen Fat Ride are one week away. Don't miss this Fat weekend right here in Bangor. Proceeds from both events will go to the trail system and Penobscot Region NEMBA. Check out this sweet groomer gifted to the race by Old Town Canoes & Kayaks ...

Big thank you to Old Town Canoes & Kayaks for another incredibly generous gift to the Essex Woods Fat Bike Race. The fabricators and engineers built us this sweet groomer for use on our trails. The roller and packing pan design will turn powder into super-packed fat bike trails and when the trail gets hard they added removable teeth to munch up frozen snow. We can add weight to the front and the back as well. Thank you Matt Cote and Wally the Wizard for making this happen! We can't wait to use it :-)
