Sweet variability

The sun came out by the time it was time for me to leave on my ride, and the roads weren’t as snowy and wet in Boulder. I opted to leave out one layer of clothing – the fleece pants and Montbell Crag jacket. It was still about 25F outside, but the glorious sun turned my frown upside down.

The gortex pants were a nice option and my derriere stayed dry. Only 15 miles N of Boulder, the roads appeared to be dry and there was hardly any snow. I felt a little silly for wearing the gortex after that, but I kept them on as an extra layer.

The pack was great other than the fact that all the stuff IN the pack was weighing me down. Fortunately, the only time I could tell that I had 15 extra lbs on my back was when I tried to ride up some of the small hills. I had the shocks on the Rottie locked out and the bike rode like a rigid bike.

I decided to stay in FoCo for another day, so I will do my 3 hour ride today and head up Rist Canyon, and will ride back to Boulder tomorrow.

Oh yeah… I went to Odell Brewery yesterday and they had one of my all time favorite beers on Nitro – the Cutthroat Porter.
Picture 2 This beer is almost coffee flavored with caramel undertones… (in my opinion anyway!)
Nitro is a very special treat. It’s like drinking a beer smoothie. The head on a nitro beer is also so much better than CO2. So smooth, so soft. I just wanted to stick my face in it…oh, and I did. 🙂 Too bad I was minus a camera.

    My roommate, his girlfriend, and I all managed to buy six-packs of the Cutthroat this weekend. Our fridge is a happy place!

    That said, after my snow run yesterday (I’ll post it sometime today as soon as I get the pics up) I’m waiting till the afternoon to run today
