Thanksgiving Snow Ride

Dylan's back in town, which means long rides with lots of climbing (and trying to hang onto his wheel for dear life, even though he's borrowing a bike for the week).

This year's pre-Thanksgiving storm dropped a lot of snow on the higher elevations outside Washington, DC, so no go on charging through the rocky singletrack on the Massanutten Mountain ridgeline.
