    Nice longish ride for a cold snowy day (now w/ pics)

    Finally decided to get out and ride this morning. Glad I did cause I got me some freshies!

    From the House, Addenbrooke Park, Kipling Bike Path, Smith Reservoir, Kendrick Lake Park, Garrison Bike Path, The StoneHouse Trail, BCLP trails, Morrison Bike Path, Red Rocks entrance 3, up to the Amphitheater, Red Rocks Trail, Matthew Winters, Dakota Ridge, Zorro, Lower Traverse of GM, Alameda Bike Path back to Garrison and the house. Whoot!

    Got home and discovered some minor frost bite on my back where my frozen coat was pulling up. Guess that's what I get for being out for 5ish hours on a cold winter's day.

    I got out as well

    Hit up the Pueblo res South Shore. From Red Gate Rock Canyon to south Shore to Pedros Point, Outer Limits, Waterfall, back up Cuatro Sinko. It snowed the whole time but zero accumulation. Brought my dog with me, cause she was the only one that would come.

    I rode from home today too. Got about 30 miles and 3k of climbing in and around "the Ranch"... it took a very sad, and painful 4:45. Not being being able to stand and pedal the SS in snow, plus the power sucking affect of the powder made for tough day.

    Did I mention I love my Niner (even though she hurt me plenty today). xoxoxo

    There seems to be a common thread here. Those crazy enough to ride single speeds are also crazy enough to ride them for 5 hours in that cold. "Longish ride"? I'll say!

    Truth be told i only sampled the poutine and a few of the ketchup chips. Although tasty i dont think i could have eaten a whole portion of either of those.

    Now back to ride my laziness off!

    Poutine is to be consumed at wee hours of the morning when your gut is filled with booze! Makes that morning much more bearable.

    Eating poutine when you're not in Québec is like eating italian food in a Chinatown... Never a good idea

    That was a monster ride in the snow. Congrats. I can't say I have EVER had a good time riding Dakota Ridge in the snow . This snow was super fine and powdery (cold temps, I guess) and it made traction even more problematic than usual. Thanks for the stoke.

    Snowy rides

    I was about to head out on the snow bike yesterday afternoon and opted for the xc skiis instead and boy am I glad I did. Skiied up and down Apex and Enchanted and it was sooo sweet. Several inched of fresh with a nice base underneath.

    Kind of hoping to hit it again today although the melt may be on in full force.

    Can I get busted for skiing down EF on an off day?
