Spring skiing but the snow won't last. So dragged out the bike and rode some gravel. Winter opens up intimate and longer range vistas that are green tunnels most of the year here in the very densely wooded southern Appalachians. Fly fisherman were out , and black bear hunters in droves, racing in groups here and there. I don't know much, but they must know something. Quite a spectacle.

Was really warm last week in Chicago....over 50* multiple days. Was awesome to get back outside and hit the trails for some gravel riding.

I scored a new Red Quarq crankset for 50% off and I grabbed one for my CX bike. Nice to finally have power on that bike and I was also able to drop a crap-Tom of weight (old crank was aluminum Rival).

Weather dropping back to normal this week, though....
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

So a month later I repost. Riding in shorts and short sleeves in January is nice, but I'd prefer what was normal.

Better get used to it. Longish winter warm stretches interspersed with sudden polar vortex snaps will become the new normal out east.

Out west it's a pretty normal winter so far (fall was much drier that usual though), right now we're digging out from a couple winter storms. Finally the local ski hills have a good snow pack. Next week it's back to rain at least at sea level. Spring end of Feb is around the corner.
