Fat Biking (snowy path and fresh snow) 3:30:00  24.0 mi (8:45 / mi)
That was a slog. Took the Greenway east, and it was fairly well travelled/bumpily packed down until Ruthven. Then I was rolling through a couple inches of snow....nice! The trail along the 3rd concession had a solid 3-4" snow on it...First tracks! Then I rolled down the trails to the lake in Leamington, toured the harbour/beach, then retraced my tracks back home.
As I was slogging away in the snow heading home, I could hear voices behind me, then bike brakes (on the paved road that I was riding alongside). I wondered if it was a group of migrant workers, as I had met a couple out and about in town. Nope, it was the Cycle Culture group out for one of their winter challenge rides. Somehow the leader recognized me and called me by name, despite my bulky layers/buff/sunglasses. I didn't have a lot of spare breath for chatting.........then they sped away on their skinny tire (well, relatively so) bikes on the pavement.
I figure that was worth 50 miles of gravel bike riding. Ough.
