Two olds guys having fun.

I finally had company on the trails today. They aren't in ideal condition and can be a challenge at times. I let Ed take my Giant Yukon while I decided on my Trek Stache 29 plus bike. I knew I would have a harder time with the plus bike because of trail conditions but wanted to take her out instead of the other fat bike I have. We had a fun 2 1/2 hour workout with only one spill, and lots of laughs.

I think Ed is hooked on trying some more winter riding fun, and hey there is nothing wrong with hugging a tree every now and then.
