Brrr, its cold up there!

Snow on Lolo

By Jake Hansen

Supposedly record crowds gathered at Alpenrose for the Cross Crusade.

While the chaos ensued in Southwest Portland, Aubrey Edwards, Randy Word, Stephen Bedford and myself opted for some quiet and stunning scenery along Marmot Rd & Barlow Trail.

The rain held out on us and everyone rode REAL STRONG up to Lolo Pass Rd. Randy and Aubrey bombed back on Hwy 26 while Bedford and I decided to get crazy and tackle the snow.

And yes, there was snow and toe freezing temperatures up at 3400 ft.

I got some pretty high quality pic's from my phone camera of this crazy guy practicing his cyclocross up there too...

Until next time!
