It finally got here!

No, RATS, not a new bicycle but it seems every Jan. we get 2 to 3 days of supurb weather It happend today in Colorado Springs, it's almost 70 degrees, sunny with a semi-strong breeze but I had to take off the legging's and scare the mulittude with my "chicken belly white legs", LOL! I ventured out on my longest trek yet since getting back into bicycling a couple of months back, rode 30 miles mostly on local area path's/trails riding up the Sinton Trail, which was a bit tough for wussy boy here as it's all UPHILL still I headed up, having to use the imitation "granny gear" on my POS DSB MTB but I was happy I didin't have to stop and rest!

The best thing is that the Sinton Trail is ALL downhill on the way back, YEA The converted Roadmaster, did it's best to live up to it's name and we flew, well untill we got to the, dreaded, "Singlewide Tunnel":

Luckly it's short distance wise as it's DARK in there, I yelled out" Honk, OoooGah, Fat man on a cheap Wal-Mart Bike, Beware! Once thru the tunnel it's continues downhill, stopped by a nice creek area by the trail for another photo for my bicycle blog I just started!

A very sweet day, riding in just shorts and short sleeve jersey, felt so awesome, Can't wait to get my LBS bicycle, if riding a POS DSB can feel this good, the "real thing" should be AWESOME!
Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!
