Mission: First trail ride of the year
Date: March 22, 2010
Ride time: 1.5hours
After hearing that some of our friends had actually ridden trail at BHP this past weekend i just had to ride it for myself! 8 wonderful degrees of awesomeness (for this time of year), lack of wind, and nice sunshine made for great riding weather. The trail was nearly free of snow, and there were only a few sections of standing water. Albeit fairly damp and muddy, it was still drier than that infamous WNS race last summer.... the one with the funnel cloud, hurricane-like winds, falling trees, torrential rain... etc.... remember that one?
I capped my ride off with a quick 12k loop of the BHP loop. I was going for a fast cadence. I ran the loop at about 31km/h, not much to speak of, other than that it was on my single speed MTB with a 34/16 ratio! Yeah, I must have looked a little funny! Oh well... mission accomplished.
