Finally a 09 Ride!

I SO admire you all weather riders but it's been Cold and WINDY here since the first of the year, today, yes I know it's the "8th. day of the month" I got in 20+ miles! Decided not to abuse the POS DSB MTB on singletrack trails, it's now set up to be a "cross/path" bike and it does ok for that mission! Here's a photo of the bike resting in a unique group of trees along one of the many "Rail/Trail" paths in Colorado Springs.

LOL, that feeling I totally understand, I keep playing the loto/powerball so we can either buy a RV and just drive to AZ. for the winter months and come back to CO. for the summer months or have a one bedroom condo with a single car garage in both AZ. and CO. I have chronic Reiter's Syndrome (sponalytist arthritis family) and the COLD seems to be beating up on me a lot more as I age past 50 I now understand why older folks will risk "hurricaines" to live in FL. !!
