fast & frozen

It was nice while it lasted.

From Friday to Monday we had a Winter version of slickrock. With temps in the 50's it's gone now. The trails will be wet and muddy for a while now. The upside is that riding the road will be tolerable with Spring on the horizon.

It's amazing that we had some of the most incredible conditions ever and I only saw a few other riders on the trails all weekend. They come out of the woodwork to ride when it's muddy (as long as it's not cold!) but give 'em once-in-a-decade trails and they stay home.

I'm glad the timing worked out over a long weekend, but if it had been mid-week I would have taken a couple of half-day snowdays to ride. It was that good.

I hope we see these conditions again next Winter...every Winter!

Alas, it's time to put some slicks on the 'cross bike.
