Spring ride

It's been a long, hard winter. It's been long, it's been hard, and it's been a winter. Five months of freezing. But now, Spring is here. Lizard man says so.

"Spring is here."

I rushed through work today so I could squeeze a trail ride around Soldier's loop and the Highland Trail loop at Fort Tuthill before other planned events this evening. Today was nearly a perfect day for a ride. Next to no wind, not cold but not too warm either, and it was a week day, so not many people on the trails.

The trails themselves weren't too bad. Mostly dry, damp in a lot of spots, muddy in a few spots, and snowcovered in short sections at a very few points. All in all, a sweet spring ride. The grass is just starting to sprout, the trees are getting leaves, and it was just plain nice.

I got a little mud on the tires.

Mileage: 17
