Two a day and loving it!

Once again before work Iwent to South Valley. The last small storm that came through added just enough that I was really wishing I had a different gear ratio. I am going to try the 22T, I feel it would have all been rideable with different gearing. I still had a blast, even managed to do a little cross training type of ride. To keep on ime I had to jog with the bike in the snow, turns out to be fun. After that it was off to work where I waited for lunch time. At lunch I just did a nice out and back on the MUP in Castle Rock, nothing fancy but I have really started to enjoy quick lunch rides!

Great pics! Looks like a lot of fun! I can't wait to get to the point soon where I can ride in the harsher climates and enjoy it like you. Right now I get scared if there is a curb to overcome.

Do little steps at a time and you will be able to do it all before you know it!
