Last week Fat Bike Tuesday was cancelled due to rain, but this week we finally got snow. Thanks Michigan...glad you could cooperate! Needless to say I was counting down the minutes at work. Not only was I going to be able to ride on groomed trail, but it was going to be in the dark. So fun!
I rushed home from work and started gathering all of my gear. This is the only part of winter riding that I don't like...so many freaking layers to put on.
Optic Nerve Boreas Goggles (at the end of winter I stored them in a "safe place") and also because I had to fit my fat bike in my fiesta. I did manage to make it work without having to take my rear wheel off, but I'm glad that no one was recording the process.
Finally I was off...but not very far. Within 2 miles it was bumper to bumper.
It took about 50 minutes to move 6 miles and that's when I decided to bail. By the time I got home home it had taken me 1 hour and 10 minutes to drive a circle of 8 miles. What a waste of time. I was NOT in a good mood when I got home :-)
Hopefully next Fat Bike Tuesday works out. But given the track record so far my coach has already loaded up an alternate workout.
The good news is that Wednesday was a completely different story. I rode my fat bike right out the front door and had an awesome, awesome time making fresh tracks.
One more day to the weekend and I can't wait. Hopefully this snow sticks around. The Winter Rush race series kicks off this Sunday at the GR Bike Park and I think the pump track will be a blast in the snow. It will definitely be a little colder then it was last year :-)
Well time to go. A certain foster wanted to help me blog today and this office chair is a little small for both of us!
