    Got snowed on today!

    Just a few flakes but it does remind me that indoor trainer season is coming up shortly. At least the wind was not blowing.

    This is when we Floridians start getting paid back for all those blistering summer days. Our best riding weather is just starting.

    SNOW??? And I'm complaining because we're actually going to have weather where the temps will go below 50 degrees in September. What happened to that beautiful 60 to 70 degree North Carolina fall I've been waiting for?

    Well, yeah, I was referring to you.

    I just didn't want to bring up any names.

    But, since you responded, I guess it's OK.

    So is ours, right here in Colorado.

    Wonderful ride today. Brisk wind, temperature about 60F. Fall is in the air!

    Can't wait for that first "snow" ride. It is beautiful after the first snow to go out bundled up in the bright sunshine. The snow makes it a wonderland.

    Seems you know the area. How ist that? Yes they plowed, but only on the top and western side (which naturally get more snow). If you know the area well, Ryan Park (elevation 8300 ft) had 3-5 inches of snow. Centennial only got a couple of flurries. They try to keep 130 open till then end of elk hunting season.

    The Alta Loma area of Rancho Cucamonga. About 45 miles east of Los Angeles, California. Uphill, downhill and across hill riding; not too level!

    Ha! It was around 90 F today, 30% humidity, clear as a bell morning and early afternoon. That's what I call riding weather!

    From the mid 1960s to the mid 1970s my folks owned Medicine Bow Lodge, right across the road from the Ryan Park Ranger Station. I had started my own family in Chicago at the time, so I never lived in WY, but would spend 3 or 4 weeks each year there on vacation and working around the lodge.

    Over the years I've dreamed of making a bicycle tour that crisscrosses WY. One leg is from Laramie, over the Snowy Range Pass into Riverside and Encampment.

    I wonder if it's a genetic thing? My grandmother used to say, "If I want to see snow, I'll buy a damn postcard." I couldn't agree with her more.

    Cool! But remember the prevaiing wind is west to east and the climb up the western side of the Sowy Range is a bit easier than the eastern side. Another really fine ride in S.E. Wyoming is from Baggs over Battle Pass to Encampment. Hope you make it out sometime. Especially nice riding in early September.
