beat the rain this morning. Got out on the new Rockhopper after swapping saddles from a Brooks C19 to a Planet Bike MTB seat . Last half of ride I switched over to the small chainring and used gear 4-7 that allowed me to spin more easily and the hearing seemed closer . Practicing for my first trail ride soon .
edit : got my Maxxis Hookworms today and my new pedals . Installed them after lunch and it was still no rain, so I rode another 2.1 miles . Love those Hookworms .

66 degrees this evening when I finished riding . Felt awesome! If it weren’t for me worried about making my knees worse , I’d kept on riding .
I’ve been riding my new Rockhopper , it doesn’t seem to be as rough on the knees as Somme of my other bikes . Going to stay on the Rockhopper until my knees get better . Lower gears , more spinning.

Yeah, we've had really nice weather here for the past few weeks. Though it's now getting pretty cool to be riding early AM. I'm already using my cool weather riding gear some mornings.
