    Mouse & Thompson (First Cold Ride)

    ^^Nice, I had a Bees Knees for a bit.


    Rode Tsali today on the SS, and my first ride in fairly cold temps. It was pretty chilly when I started (high '30s maybe low '40s) and it took me a couple miles to get warm, then I was too warm and had to shed the jacket and I was good after that. I'd never done Mouse or Thompson loops. They're harder IMO than right and left loops, as they have quite a bit more climbing, but still lots of fun sections too.

    Trying out the new Absolute Black oval ring, and personally, I really like it





    It was chilly out, but damn what a good day to ride! No haze and almost no clouds, and that deep vivid dark blue the sky only turns here in cooler weather.










    That's snow that's still lying there





    Houseboats that are now land locked till spring





    Parting shots

    You too buddy, hopefully we get a lot of days like this one over the winter months.

    LOL, I have a bike that has gears, and the wagon wheels everyone raves about. But for the majority of the places that I ride, I personally prefer the SS and the smaller wheels. I simply feel it's more fun to ride, just my opinion though.
