Hitting the road

After last weeks' freak early winter storm the weather has returned to seasonal norms.  The snow we enjoyed so much has mostly melted or turned to unconsolidated slop. A couple good days of XC skiing got me through until some of the lower elevation mountain bike trails melted out.  Today I headed out to Lloyds in Truckee and tomorrow we'll be riding on the south facing slopes above King's Beach. This might be a couple of the last rides of the year for me as Lynn and I are flying to Thailand on Thursday morning. Hopefully when I get back there'll be a little more snow covering the mountains.
That being said, it's kinda sad to put away my ride for the winter.  I just had the best mountain bike season of my life, and to be honest I wouldn't have minded if it lasted a little longer. My new bike had a lot to do with my enjoyment of riding this summer.  It was exactly what I needed during my knee recovery to get me excited and keep me excited about riding all spring, summer, and fall.  Thanks bike, I'll see you in 7 months or so...
