Join Me

 We received about another 3" of snow early yesterday morning, so I packed the local trails last night.  This morning I thought I would give them a try, but they were still soft.  I think I had about 5 pounds of air in. Not too sure how accurate the gauge is I have, but there were about 3 wrinkles in the back tire when pedaling.  I could ride them, but it was tough and I didn't want to muck up the trails, so I headed for the back roads. This local lake has a rather large ice bank that seems to building larger every time I stop. 

 I rode the Fatty around this lake a month ago. Although I didn't stick right on the shore line, it was 7.5 miles around the way I rode. I think this lake measures over 100 feet deep. 

 I ended up being out for just under 2 hours at near the 25°F with cloud cover and slight moisture in the air every now and then.  I did fight a rather stiff NNW on the return route.  

The conditions on the back roads near here are excellent for riding.  I encourage others to get out and ride these excellent conditions.  Join me.  It's not bad. 

Lets get outdoors and have some FUN!!
