Well, How about it. I do believe we have made it to the most deceptive time of year - the January Thaw. Temperatures will cruise into the mid 40s, the snow will disappear, and it will rain; dashing the hopes of urban xc skiers across mid-latitude North American areas. So, take advantage of it and get out on your bike! But remember, with every January thaw there is also a freeze. All that melting by day will surely glaze the roadways to a nice slippery sheet of ice.
A few weeks ago I headed down to the Carse Trails for a little solo Mountain Biking. If you haven't seen yet, Derek is heading out on a bicycle powered journey through Africa and recently got a GoPro to carry and document the trip. We thought it might be fun to break it out and see what it was all about. Being that I was riding alone I was skeptical about pushing it too hard, and running back and forth setting up shots really took it out of me.
Had a nice ride on the Neck Romancer yesterday. From the beach to single track; through overgrown fields and plenty of mud. When im on this thing I feel like where the trail ends my ride starts and that's a fun feeling.
