Something about a cold winter night that makes me want to burrow in the couch with some blankets and just veg out. After I made dinner last night I was really lazy and tired. Even if I only went out for an hour I was going riding.
I really just wanted to see how the hand would react to riding. Overall it did very well! I did my SE Fat Bike Loop (Talahi Woods and Sand Prairie). Despite the snow arriving a couple days prior to my ride I was laying down a lot of first tracks. Once again no speed records were broken, but lots of fun was had!
I nailed the clothing (not too hot or cold), the bike (carbon Salsa Mukluk) worked flawlessly, and I was feeling pretty damn good. I really wanted to spend more time down at Sand Prairie packing in a trail but time was ticking by too fast. I ended with 2 hours and 13 miles. I'm guessing I will pretty much do the same route this morning before work at noon.
Thursday I'm off and hope to get a longer ride in. I'm just not too sure where yet. Most likely a out and back on the Wobegone Trail. The idea always sucks but once I'm riding the trail, it's really not too bad.
