:: Weekend warrior ::

Been a busy weekend, Erin is in Vegas till tomorrow, checking out what is new in the Eyewear industry, and I was home. Thought I would be able to get on the bike a lot, but plans changed late in the week.
My office is moving and we were expecting snow this weekend... great. We were asked to come in on the weekend and get the move done. I was in the office till about 3:30, and decided to attempt a ride up Meadow mountain. From the parking lot it started to drizzle, but I thought nothing of it. Made the sloppy 5 mile climb and decided to take it easy and forgo the single track, and just flipped it back down to the truck. Good thing, it was FREEZING coming down, numb fingers and toes and covered in cold mud, not very enjoyable. The single track would have been fun, but slippery roots and rocks with numb fingers didn't seem too great to me.

Today I woke up to no snow so I headed out to Eagle... It was AWESOME. About 55 degrees and mostly sunny. It was really dry in eagle, makes me wish I headed there Saturday instead of the Meadow mountain mud feast I chose. Here are some picts from this weekends rides. Eagle had some great views of all the fall foliage. Only about a month left of local rides, the snow might not be here, but the cold dark afternoons tend to lead to shorter rides.

Oh, my new Spot single speed is great.
Also, check me out (colorado sighting) I'm famous, haha, thanks Barry.
