    T-day supprise!

    The wife told me to go for a ride to get me out of the kitchen. (I am a really bad armchair cook). So, off I went! What a great day for a ride. Temp in the mid 40s F. Nice sunny day. I went to some single track along the river. Did some cool down hills, and some lung busting climbs.

    Did anyone else use the day off to get a fun ride in?

    I took some photos to share with ya'll.

    What's that white powdery stuff on the ground?



    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    Actually,

    We ride on Thanksgiving and do the dinner on Friday. The trails are usually EMPTY.

    This year was sweet. The weather was perfect and the riding was ALL GOOD! Went to Santos Trails in Belleview, FL. I had a blast.

    I was thinking about you. However, the final destination was not determined until we were already on the road. We were either going to Santos or Carter Road in Lakeland. It was all dependent on how my wife felt. (She's still sick) If she was feeling good (relatively speaking) we were going to Santos, if not, then staying closer to home.
