I have had the cross bike out the last two rides and it was a welcome change, but more work than the road bike, although it does ride much better with the noisy and wide 35mm tires. This is the bike I am thinking of using for some touring with this summer. I have hauled the BOB trailer with it but only for about 100 miles. I think I will change the cassette and tires to make it a little more hill friendly and give it a go.
Just two of my favorite things...Bicycling and Golf. I did both today.
The temperatures have been nice as of late so most of the snow is gone. In the 70's the Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, so that has left a very small amount in a extra shady area, but that is about it.
The spring peepers are out in force. It has made for some very noisy rides around here, but it is a good noise. I got in 19 miles Monday and another 30 plus today.
