Held at the Tennsesse Pass Nordic Center, the course meander through trees, past the Cookhouse (just cruel - it was before I'd eaten and smelled yummy) and finished with section of singletrack that would rival a snowy day on Endor. It was a successful endeavor, with most riders staying out of the snow and on two wheels.

The Chapter prospects may or may not show up just as prepared. 
Regardless, following the snow pedaling there will be a Chapter meeting somewhere in the fine city of Leadville. There will be cold Gluten, fermented apples and rice as well as crushed grapes per Chapter Charter. All prospective Chapter Members are encouraged to attend.
