February 2009 Rides: Woods Gulch, Deer Creek, Pattee Canyon

I have been motivated to get out and ride some. I would rather ride the ice than sweat away on the trainer. Here are some pictures from the third week of February 2009.

Deer Creek Missoula
I made it about half a mile up the Deer Creek Sneak but I couldn’t stay on top of the snow, too much winter excess weight? I went back and went up the Deer Creek Road.

Pattee Canyon Feb 18, 2009
Pattee Canyon Feb 18, 2009, This gentleman was heading up to ski as I was coming down. The Deer Creek side was solid ice with a good layer of gravel over it.

I flatted my studded tire and thought we were out of the ice season.  Six crashes in three rides tells me I should have built up another studded tire.  Some people learn as they get older others of us just get older.  Rick
