Christmas Eve Traditional Booze Cruise 2013

Every Christmas Eve for the past 4 (possibly 5) years, I've been able to keep a dams ride to the bars a rolling tradition. We usually hit up Swing Station & Long Branch in LaPorte, then rip the dams over to Canyon Grill, before heading somewhere to warm up. Some years we go as a group, other years I've cranked it solo. This year l rode solo and decided to add in the Bison's Breath in Ault where I played Jeopardy and watched the original Grinch with a few colorful locals.

Sunday (No Booze) Cruise

Lately, I've been sitting around too much because it's -12 degrees out day-after-day and this Sunday was finally nice enough to throw a road ride together. Since I can't do my favorite road ride, I tried a different loop. Once again, due to the flood damage, the road just south of Sunrise Ranch is completely gone. I managed to hike along the cliff side with my bike and complete the loop, but I was probably trespassing and I wouldn't recommend it!

The county road between Hwy 34 & Sunrise ranch is completely gone.

Bridge is still there but the road on both sides is washed away.

Enjoy the balmy 40 degree weather!
