Sunday ride in the country.

010

Typically this time of year I’m spending my weekends on the snow with my Pugsley. This week is statistically the coldest week of the winter. This weekend it was anything but normal. We had temperatures in the 40’s Fahrenheit. That’s around 40 degree above normal. Instead of snowbiking I did what I do when the temps fall into this range, normally in April, and went for a ride in the country.

It felt incredibly warm with the sunshine and light winds. I left the neck gaitor and ear covering at home. I could ride all day in these temps and never get cold. I even got a little sunburn on my nose.

Even the horses seemed to be enjoying the sunshine.

I returned to high speed descents without worries my brain would freeze. Here’s another one of those Cycliq Fly6 recordings. I reach 40 mph on this descent, with studded tires, for a few seconds around 3:05 in the video. Crazy stuff!

Happy Riding

    40 mph on your winter bike with studded tires? That’s insane. I barely get past 40 on my road bike in the summer 😀

    NIce video to watch. And in such a different environment than I’m familiar with.
