    "Cruise" the front range

    I have been having a blast in the snow with the Trek but wanted to change it up a little. I took my old cruiser friday. In the morning I went up the asphalt bike path to the top of South Canyon Park and then down the awesome hard packed snow WWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    After work I tried to ride Hidden Mesa. Conditions were horrible so it did not happen (really chunky ice/snow and where there was no snow was very muddy looking), but I will find other areas!

    Morning run!






    The only pic from my post work attempt

    no studs (Other than the one pedaling that is... LOL). They were just basic tires for a cruiser bike, made the corners really fun with the coaster brake!

    Studs are only good for ice, for off roading in the fluffy stuff any MTB tire will do. I haven't had my studs on for quite a while.

    True, but with coaster brakes the ice becomes a lot of fun on the corners!

    Sometimes it's good to just hop on a bike and go for a ride, and leave all the techno-babble gearhead crap behind. Normal clothes, normal shoes, no computers, cadence, heart rate monitors or GPS... just ride for the enjoyment of riding. Having a cruiser bike for that is even better.

    That is how I roll.. LOL. The only thing I have on any bike that is not that way is on my SS I have to clip into my spd pedals hahahaha. Been computer free now for years and won't go back, it took the fun out of the ride.
