One word. MUD.
Snow is melting and the sun is peaking through the clouds more often. My training ground is all the fun gravel roads in the mountains, which are now muddy rivers of fun. It’s a good thing I like getting muddy!
Mud dork stripe. My shorts were much worse. 🙂
You start getting these funky knee warmer tanlines.
Shoes were made to get dirty…and then clean.
I wonder if this has the same effect as a “mud facial?”
Daylight savings on Sunday…. another good sign. Now, I’ll be looking for little teeny buds on tree branches, signs of a warm breeze, and the smell of fresh pine.
Off to Seattle on Wednesday for 5 days. If you’re in Seattle, come to the bike show! I’ll also be paying some dealers a visit. Training… not going very well right now. No time, unfortunately… I’m riding an average of 3x a week. Guess I should look for later season fitness this year. Sigh.
Whoa! All your bikes are in the big ring! I thought you didn’t use that gear? 😉
No kidding on the mud. I week ago the game was ride early and hit the frozen turf. Now, it doesn’t freeze.
I found that putting on 1.8″ MTB tires actually shed the mud pretty well–even the Boulder clay.
Have fun with the spring riding. Pray for May.
ewwe! muddy roads!
do you get K-love to clean your bikes? then it might not be so bad. I HATE cleaning my bikes.
Spring only starts after the SYDC is completed.
