Biking in the Whites

On a cold Wednesday morning I found my self with the day free of family obligations and the urge to get out on the new bike. After looking at Weather Underground, I noticed things were quite a bit warmer in the hills, and I decided to head off for a day trip in the Whites.

The trail leaving the mile 28 trail head was super hard making for very fast biking.

At the Trail Creek junction I headed towards Moose Creek to avoid the cold weather bound to be found on Wickersham Creek.

After Lee’s Cabin the trails got a bit softer but were still in pretty good shape. The light was fantastic…

Eventually I neared the haystack junction turn off and I turned around and headed back out.

The temps were a lot warmer than at my house in town – it was around -30f at my house when I left town, and perhaps -10f at the mile 28 trail head and -23f at Moose Creek cabin, making for a brisk but still fun trip.

The six hour ride kicked my but but was very fun. The trails were strangely devoid of travelers – I saw a pair of skiers in the parking lot, and some show machiners at Lees, but otherwise had the place to my self and Remus.

Not a bad way to spend a day.
