More fun than I deserve....

My gf and I have finally gotten out on our new cyclo-cross bikes. We did one ride of approx. 35 mi. and one of 21 mi. OMG this is fun. I'm loving the feeling of riding different surfaces and the challenge of high speed and low speed obstacle avoidance. And, of course, the scenery is amazing. God this is fun.

The day I retire I'm buying either a mountain or cross bike so I can ride trails once/week. I can't wait. When I was a serious runner I was limited to 20 mile runs or so - made me incredibly jealous of folks on mountain bikes who could explore the back country of our fabulous parks.

FWIW my gf put a deposit on a Mtn bike and then changed her mind and bought a cross. IMO it was a really good change of mind.
