Saturday marked the first real snow fall here in MN. I figured I better get out and enjoy it. So I broke out my Lake winter boots, prepped my S & S El Mariachi and hit the bike paths and trails.
After about 3 miles, I ducked into a little bandit single track and took cover so I could make a few adjustments. I let some more air pressure out. I ended up with about 18 psi in the back and about 13-15 in the front. Smoooooothhhhhhhh!
As you can see in the 1st photo, when I left my house the snow was only about 1" deep. By the time I returned about 2 hours later it was really coming down. When I started heading towards home, I back tracked over about 5 miles of the same bike path I rode on th way out. I couldn't see the original tracks from earlier. It was cold, windy and blustery.
In the end, I got just shy of 2 hours of hard pedaling. I say hard because each pedal stroke required power. There was no coasting on this ride! I rode probably 4 miles of neighborhood single track and the rest was on paved bike paths. Sweet ride and a great way to start December.
Have a great week folks.
