    Check out local tire places, usually very easy to find a spare for cheap.

    Yes.
    Please make sure you always have a spare!

    Excellent. I almost wish I had some stories to contribute. I'm sure I will at some point.

    I ran Switzerland Trail on President's Day from Sugarloaf to Sunset to Gold Hill. In the shade, there was 6-8 inches of snow with lots of tracks so pretty safe unless you're on street tires. However, if you weren't paying attention it would be pretty easy to slide off the trail and end up in a mess. In the sun, the trail was clear. Didn't see anyone the whole way. If in doubt, run from Sunset to Gold Hill.

    Odd, the RSVP function isn't working for this run. Chris? Just seems to be this one. Clicked on the other runs on the calendar and RSVP works fine.

    Got bored today so I decided to head westward and familiarize myself with the area (Sugarloaf). I didn't actually do the trail as it was just me and my 4 legged co-pilot, not to mention it snowed a ton this weekend. Snapped a few teaser pics and thought I'd share...

    the parking area at the beginning of trail


    the overlook


    my co-pilot, who stole the wheel while i snapped some shots


    the ride



    some wildlife



    Lookin forward to the actual ride and hope these make some of you want to join us!!

    Wow! Looks way different than when i was last up there. Gonna try to get two of my friends to go.
    One has a first gen Ex and the other has a Pathy, both are afraid to go on trails but this one is so easy so i hope to be bringing two more rigs with me.
