    It finally dried up here so I got another qualifying ride in. The Lake Fairfax trails are in awesomely dry shape. I am riding them again tomorrow.

    And man I am loving these wheels.

    Once again the "dirtiest" part of today's ride was not on the gravel stretches, but on the Hohe Straße with today's rain where the farm vehicles have left a coating of mud from plowing the fields. Still, here are some new gravel sections.

    I was hoping for some snow miles on the Pugsley this mroning, but there was only a dusting meaning I only got to make tracks on a couple of the wooden bridges. I ended up with about three dirty biker miles in four segments of my 27 mile ride.

    More snow overnight and this morning, three to four inches when only a dusting was forecast. I got my dirtysnowbiker miles in on the trails in Grüneburg and Nidda Parks, probably about seven unpaved miles today.

    I made my final #fs2018dirtybiker ride to the Kröger's Brötchen on Grüneburgweg. Coffee and a Schokocroissant before heading to the Grüneburg and Nidda Parks for some packed snow/ice/slush/muddy trails for my dirtybiker miles. My first Nidda loop was the perimeter trails, then the second time through I was wandering around the wooded areas.

    To no one's surprise (if you've been paying attention), Consularrider has crushed it. He has officially without a doubt no joking around totally serious you know what I'm saying won.

    As for the most liked+elited pic (that wasn't mine), D_A_N_E won with 5 points for his bunny hop practice photo.

    Gents, please PM me your shirt sizes.

    Thanks everyone for playing! I wish the weather cooperated better, but I'm also glad that folks stayed off the mountain bike trails due to the mushy freeze-thaw conditions we had this winter.

    The #fs2018dirtybiker competition is officially over, but feel free to post pics and comments for any more non-road bike rides that happen until the official end of #FS2018.

    Cheers, and see some of you at the closing party on Wednesday!
