Baker’s Dozen is Five Years Old!

Snotcycle Turns Into Hike/RunCycle

Preparations on Friday for the Snotcycle this Saturday did not go quite as planned. Trying to lay down a tire track on the race course proved too difficult to accomplish. Mike and Harriet then picked up the gauntlet and cross country skied the entire course which took them over 3 hours. At least we thought [...]

Baker’s Dozen Pre-Ride!

The weather and conditions were as perfect as they could be for the last Pre-ride for the 2010 edition of the Baker's Dozen. Although I only managed to carve out time for one lap plus an extra loop in the Pine Trees, the trail is about as fast as I have ever seen it. As [...]
