Ride Reports

First Ride of 2016

We had a brief break in the arctic temperatures this past weekend, and I was able to take advantage of that Sunday and go for my first ride of 2016. It was short–only about 40 miles–but it was sooooooo nice to be out riding again. First step was to dig out all my gear that I’d […]
