While I wasn't able to get out and get that "big" ride in this week I was able to get out several times with more to come...I hope! Wednesday I usually hit the road but with a new Beargrease I pretty much mimicked Tuesday's ride. I did spend some more time down at Sand Prairie. I went off trail some and did a bit of exploring but the going was rough and what path there was was quickly shut out by overgrowth. Once again I'm really happy with the Salsa Beargrease. I can't wait to put a longer ride on to test everything out.
Thursday I was on till noon at work so my all day bender on the Wobegon was out. I know I could have still gone out and put in the time but juggling 3 kids on your own at night can be taxing, which Jen had already done the past two nights. So I took out the single speed Cross Check and hit up parts of the Dirt Bag route. I was excited to ride in the sun but by the time I was changed and out the door the sun had disappeared to only return at my rides end. Nonetheless I had a great ride. Even ran into a CX buddy driving semi. Ended with 4 hours.
I'm off Saturday but am with the kids as Jen has a Knowledge Bowl meet. I hope to get an evening/night ride in. Followed up with a morning ride on Sunday before work. But yeah...my plans change!
Happy Weekend. Pull out the bike, it may hit 40 degrees!
