    so far this week...

    Been a good week on the bike.

    Monday after work was Quarry Mesa. Made some fresh tracks but the conditions were odd. I am not used to having to crank hard, downhill in only a few inches of snow/ice. Great workout!

    Tuesday being Valentines day I only did my lunch ride, quick spin for fun

    Today I started at South Valley. Conditions are chunky. It is packed down enough that it is rideable, corners come fast (Whoops).
    After work I went over to Ridgeline. Conditions there vary. If you stay on the popular packed down trails you will have a great time. Hit it while it frozen and it's an absolute blast. There were a few sections of exsposed dirt (could be mud quickly if the weather is nice). I did hike a bit on the less used trails. I believe at one point I was just following a random snowshoe trail. I don't quite have that area down yet.

    Most of these days were just long finger cycle gloves. On cold days I use the Pearl Izume Lobster Gloves (They are great). My typical cold gear is:

    Pants: Lined carhart
    Bottom Layer Shirt: Breathable Nike or similiar
    Mid Layer: Lond sleeve cotton "T"
    Vest: Fleece zip up (Timberland from Costco)
    Outer: (If needed) Just a wind breaker of some sort. I have a Remmington and a marmot. Both great, remmington hold a lot of moisture in however
    Ear Cover: Pearl Izumi balaclave(thin)
    Gloves: Lobster claw Pearl Izumi
    Socks: Smartwool or wigam wool
    Shoes: Old answer MTB
    Shoe Cover: Pearl Izumi neoprene(working on something better)
