This is not the winter you are looking for...

Not much snow! Making the best of it though. "When food appears, eat."

Planned morning loop...

Trying to muster the ambition to ride this 40 minute loop most mornings before work! 

The thought of the trainer shall serve as motivation :)

This past summer...

Mike, Keenan and Mike's girls
Keenan and me

This past summer we went for a 2 family ride on the bike path. Aaaah, memories of warmth and sun.

Snuck out between rain showers. Nokian Xtreme and YakTrax. Made the ice not so bad. 50 degrees was not so bad either.

New bike goodies

New wheelset

New wheels for the Yeti. XT with Sun Rhino. May discify later, or not. For now I just put on...

New pads

New combo pads. I have always liked the V brakes. It seems whenever I ride 
with someone who has discs they are always having issues.

Another fun ski...

Went out the door with the pooch this morning and it was perfect. In the woods and out in the field.

on the way up
I went out this morning on the last day of my 2 week winter break. Headed up Woodard Hill road in Little River SP. It was a good first workout for the winter thighs. A bit over a mile up the whole time and off into the woods some. It was mighty cold...the iphone stopped working after a while, even inside the jacket!
