As anticipated by the weather forecast, Saturdays group ride was treated to out first frozen beach ride. Temps around 25 at ride time.
Sunday had us on our bi-weekly Sunday morn Fatbike ride. Once again, we were on the beach and it was a good thing we had big tires cuz it was not froze like the day before. Regardless we rode the very same beach again. And about an hour in the woods too. Here, we were surprised to see a decorated tree in the middle of nowhere. Very cool. This tree is almost a mile from any road and seems to have needed a ladder to do. It made for a awesome ride. Hope this ride continues all winter…
So my job is to ride this bike this weekend. Its what I get paid to do. And you can stop in to take it for a spin too!
I hope to use this bike as my MTB pretty much into next summer. With these bikes getting lighter, their not just for beach and snow anymore.
The temps are up and the beach is gone for awhile. At least for the MTB’s. I think I got to ride the frozen beach 3 times in the last week. Thats a good thing.
The warm temps will stick around a few days. The 30 day does not look good for winter sports. So I guess we just keep on riding (more).
Have a good weekend.
Fatbike maiden voyage report to follow on Monday.
So faster than you can say “spoiled store owner” I change rides. With the colder temps bringing on the beach riding, out goes the shiny new red cross bike, and in comes my Disc Trucker tour bike. Strip off all the racks and bags, throw on a pair of 2.0 tires (its a 26in!) and I now have a pretty cool winter bike. This is the bike I rode up to our cabin this summer. I did take the Brooks saddle off to test ride that new seat. Planet Bike Pro titanium. I truly do ride the stuff I sell. For a $69.00 titanium seat, its a thumbs up. It will go on my impending 9zero7 later this week.
I’ll keep the cross bike ready to go for awhile. Unfortunately its going to warm up. And if we are off the beach, its back on the faster bike.
But for today, this week, its the Trucker. Long Ride Wednesday is coming up tomorrow and I cant wait to hit that beach. I’ll try to get a earlier start to make sure the beach is still rock hard.
Im sure you will hear all about it later.
Next post is Thursday.
