Still some snow I can see on the ridge but it's actually WARM out there! Decided to take the old bike out down towards the Cle Elum river/Suncadia today for the inaugural lunch hour ride of the 2012 season, and it got a little old skool... Borneo, where's mah flow?
Now we got too much flow. Yup, I'm looking down the roadbed I've got to get through to make a loop.
By the time I'd waded through the brush and mud and more snow I couldn't shift into my biggest platter in back without the chain ending up in the spokes. I was able to grunt up in the next gear over and head back for the office on Nelson Dairy road- scaring a herd of elk near the old barns in the process- and had enough time to hose off the bike and my shoes before going back to the grind.
I'll keep reporting what I find as things start opening up.
