First significant snowfall of the year and generally suffering from cabin fever after a day of watching football: grabbed my daughter’s mountain bike with the almost flat tires and jacked the seat post up way past the safety line.
No pictures to prove it, but I had some fun crunching through the ice covered snow (2″) on the street and in our yard. It was enough to get me thinking about finding a used steel 26″ hardtail and building up an adventure/tourer.
I also wore my Outdoor Research Compressor pants for the first time. At 27F, with a pair of thin wool tights on underneath, and not riding all that hard; they were too warm. They just might prove perfect for sleeping.
