Mud, Snow, a Bike, and January.

What is it about that combination and me that makes me take a bike out and get it all muddy? Seriously?

With all the Austro-Daimler building this weekend, I decided to take STeve out for a spin... to test out the cross tires, yeah, that's it.

For January riding, this ain't bad.

There was some mud involved.

I rode out Woody Mountain Road a ways, then out to the city well pump houses on closed roads. I definitely have a lot more respect for Cross riders after today. Pedaling through mud, snow and softpack is hard work, especially on skinny tires. Yet somehow it was easier than I recall it being on the mountain bike last year.

And it was a lot of fun.

Mileage: 20
