    Ouch! Hope you heal up quickly. And I know someone will say it, so it may as well be me... You need a bigger Band-Aid.

    Was the bandaid to hold the flap of flesh in place, or was it not as deep as it looked?

    Not a bad day for a ride, here's a frame I've been hoarding for ages, a K2 Brass Monkey.
    Today was it's 1st taste of dirt. After years of duallies, it was uh....interesting to ride a bike similar to my 1st bike back in 1997.

    Yeah... it was nasty deep.

    It was the most unsensational crash, but I'm sore as hell today.

    Ouch! I've done a couple of those this year but fortunately the terrain was kinder. Hoping the new ride will help that some.

    The annual Thanksgiving Day Appetite Seminar in Fairfax was conducted in deep mud this year after heavy rain, which drove off some of the regulars, but this kid went the distance, 20 tough miles with 3500 feet of climbing.

    I need a bit more on this one to be able to put this into contexts.

    I took a friend of mine, a fellow triathlete who is also training for an Ironman, on his first mountain mountain bike ride. I told him we'd do a 15 mile out and back on whats supposed to be an easy intermediate trail, mostly hard packed, a little bit of chunky stuff, and 2-3 small hike a bike sections. He said when I told him we'd do 15 miles he was expecting an hour long walk in the park... he turned around and went back to the car about 2.5-3 miles into the ride and said he was absolutely floored by how difficult mountain biking was, he complained that his whole upper body has never been so tired and soar from a bike ride, and he said climbing is hard on a tri bike and that mountain bikes are way to heavy to pedal uphill lol

    I'm not the fastest or most skilled and I'm still not acclimated to Colorado elevtion but it's nice to hear the wife of someone with a chip on their shoulder say "I heard you destroyed him on the trails today"






    PS - whoever gave me an anonymous negative rep for this post can suck it

    Ice crystals growing on the lake. It got cold here pretty fast. -8F today and still going down.
    Didn't dare try cycling on ice yet, but that day is here soon.

    Central Finland. Last thursday temps went below zero Centigrade and friday to sunday we got snow. On saturday the temperature plummeted even further the trend continuing on sunday and today being the coldest. Last thursday the lakes were almost completely unfrozen. At the moment it's hovering around -15F. Gotta ride to the lakes tomorrow to see what it looks and feels like then. Temperature's supposed to be a bit more gentle also, maybe as high as 10F but with increased wind chill perhaps snowfall.

    It's gonna be awesome.

    Awesome is not the word I'd use for the temps, but that picture is awesome. I've never seen anything like that!

    Ice crystals were gone today. They'd evolved into large Koch's snowflakes and by tomorrow it'll probably look like ordinary snow.
    There's some boiling water still running free downstream from the powerplant though.



    Still at -6F and getting colder again. Wind chill was a bit harsh on a bike btw.

    These "numbers" you people keep throwing out: "-8F" and "-6F"... See, in my mind, these "numbers" don't even make sense. I can't even comprehend them. It's like, I know what they mean. But I just can't wrap my head around them.






    Sorry, I had to go put on a sweater after thinking more about those "numbers". Thanks for sharing the great photos. Stay safe and stay warm out there!

    I'd love to know the temp accounting for wind chill. -6F is hard to conceptualize without any personal experience to reference (I'm in New Jersey, US). It's interesting that with that powerplant upstream, even at such low temperatures the river's not iced over.

    The powerplant's quite close behind me in that shot, less than half a mile. The currents there are so strong I wouldn't dream of swimming in there even at summer, I'd get pulled under for sure as I'm not that good a swimmer. That's why it isn't frozen over yet. Winter here is less than a week old and looking like a real winter already!

    I checked the wind chill of today from an app and guess what... -22F!!! NO WONDER my face got all prickly and numb when cycling (very slowly) against the wind. Damn. Sure made me take all the possible trails I could to get some tree coverage.
