A Few Words And A Photo To Start The New Year

The snow cover was complete and a soft, cold crunch accompanied me along the way. There were few tracks in the snow: a meandering mountain tire, a person walking their dog, but mostly unbroken trail. A few geese circled overhead and landed in the nearby lake, undaunted by the snow or icy water. Two young deer, a doe followed closely by a buck, crossed the trail in front of me, more curious than afraid. All along the way I listened to the sounds of tires rolling over snow, ice and leaves.

It was in Wyoming that I cut my teeth riding and racing singletrack. Many hours behind the shop counter paid for this habit. At some point along the trail the landscape has become a very integral part of who I am and let me tell you, many evenings and weekends have been heartily consumed in this process. I enjoy learning, painting and drawing, math, science and technology, and being outside on two wheels. And also delicious dark beer. Yum.

Nothing better than the sound of fresh snow crunching under 4-inch tires… Still waiting for a good snowfall in PGH!

My first day ride was a little different—New Jersey had a nice break from the cold week before—temps in the 50’s and sunshine. I started with the new wind jacket on (Christmas gift) and got too hot immediately, so I ended up in a base layer with mesh t-shirt… perfect way to start the new year!

Totally looks like a black metal album cover.
