Riding. Cloverdale Park - Mckinnon

In a word the valley today looked "Incredible." Winter wonder was shining brightly on a perfect Winter day. Not too warm, not too cold. Thankfully people still seem to prefer malls and video games as opposed to going to the valley on a Winter day, it was reasonably quiet considering the weather conditions. A large number of bikers were out, lots riding fat bikes, and some people "snowshoeing" on the hard packed multi use trail.  Silly, silly people. That would have been worth taking a picture of but I didn't feel like stopping and camera fetching at the time.

I ended up in Mckinnon where  the temperatures dropped quite significantly and was teased by the singletrack once again. It's great in the Winter and infinitely better in the dry seasons. I kept it on the North side for most of the ride other than riding across Cloverdale bridge for the beginning and return back to the parking spot.
