Man Oh Man
Yeah, this was the last time I saw the ground without snow, Saturday in RI. Just poked a look at the weather forecast for Friday, when I race the 35+ race. Uh boy: 3-6 inches of snow with winds picking up in the afternoon. Three straight weekends of snow racing.
So in order to get ready, and because it was way too cold to ride the road today, Ben and I went out for a MTB ride this afternoon, all studded out. It was so freakin cold, 22 with a windchill of 3! And it was snowing pretty hard at the end. Still, winter MTB riding is pretty great (as long as there isn’t too much snow). We were ripping down trails covered thick with ice with no slipping at all.
