It is late January, and despite the relatively easy winter we've had this year, road trips are on the brain.
Pete pours some money into the money hole on our way to Salida, Colorado last spring…
Heck, yesterday was the first day of the season for us to go below zero. But 20's and 30's aren't really warm. Sure, they are warmer than zero or ten below…but they still mean you aren't wearing shorts and t-shirts, and that your water will freeze if you don't drink it fast enough.
Hence, the need to be elsewhere has kicked in. In the din of background conversation you hear talk of riding this place and that place, with almost a sense of urgency. "Like, I've got to get out of here man!' type talk. Modern day cabin fever? Or perhaps just modern day cyclists, yearing for a bit of warmth, some fresh dirt or pavement, and a good bike.
Where will I go this year? I'm not quite sure yet.
What about you? Got plans to escape? Share them with us here…

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
