Frozen Festivus of NIghts

Conditions for this years Festivus were very cold and the trail was covered with several inches of snow. Fat Bikes ruled the day at this years Festivus of Nights Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Several small groups formed with most turning around early due to the conditions.
Studded tires were a good choice if you did not have a Fat Bike.
One of the few that completed the entire course was Jeff Arnaud.  Look Jeff's ride on January 26th, 2014.  A nice gravel tour North of Lawrence.
Chris Thomas testing out the course conditions and showing earning some style points.

Several different methods were used to try and stay warm.  MX goggles over your eye glasses worked until your body generated heat.  Then they just fogged up. 
Gerard and Tim crossing one of the slick bridges.  Gerard is a master at riding ice so he had no problems.
Christopher had a good time riding at night. On the return trip home he bonked and it took over 3 hours to make it back.  He as tired and cold by the end of the night. 
The view of the trials at night.  Just pick a track and follow it.
