Great Weather

Boy today is another great January day, in the 60's yesterday and the upper 50's today with little to no wind and plenty of sunshine.  A small group of us got out yesterday and got a great gravel ride in, most of the roads were blazing fast with one exception and that road was full of new gravel and wasn't my favorite section.  We have been watching the weather, below is our weather app.
 We didn't encounter very much traffic on our ride which is pretty common, I have been hoping to see this vehicle out while out riding but I haven't come across it yet.  I hear that driver is stoned most of the time, but I can't confirm that.
 You ever do any day dreaming while your riding?
Oh um, er um...me neither.

Groundhog Training

How is your training going?
Is the force strong with you?
I talked to this fur ball the other day about helping us maintain a section of our trail at Indian Creek, he is getting his equipment all ready.
Don't forget, we have more than just gravel in our neck of the woods.  We have a some pretty sweet single track at Poosey Conservation Area which is very near Jamesport.  Just something to keep in mind this spring/summer if you are looking for another place to ride.
There are several sections for you to enjoy but the Bobcat loop has it's name because Doug came around a corner and there was a family of Bobcats in the trail.  You never know what you are going to see while your out on the trail.

Light Snowfall

We did receive about 1-2 inches of snow last night, not that much but enough to get the team out and clear the roads.
Wasn't long after that there was some pace lines forming, it's all about teamwork.
After all the fun outdoors there is nothing like a hot home cooked meal.

Ready To Shed A Few?

Wow, now that the holidays are over I know I am feeling a little...swollen.  Wait a minute, I felt like that before the holidays.
 
Don't make this your theme song:
 
 
Now is the perfect time to get out and get some gravel grinding in, hey it might help me....I mean somebody shed a few unwanted yearend pounds.
 
Chucky's is right around the corner, Saturday February 7, 2015!

Merry Christmas

Chucky wanted to send you his Christmas cheer, so straight from Chucky's mouth "Ho Ho Ho".
Okay wait a minute, I can tell that you have more than Christmas on your mind, you must be gearing up to sleep all winter.  Lets try this again:  "Ho Ho Ho".

That's more like it.  Merry Christmas to everyone, I hope you have a great holiday and if you are traveling please be safe.  See you soon!

Feeling Flush....

I tell you what, as a groundhog it seems like you catch a lot of crap for what the weather does or doesn't do.  People want to dump all over you for it, this isn't a topic I would sh*t you about.
 
The news coverage about my shadow is good but it sure isn't 2 plyHover around your computer to stay updated about our event!

Check Out That Caboose!!!


Some people have been spending more time with a companion with a wider backside than they have before, I am just now taking that step.
I just picked up my fat bike today, a sweet Salsa Mukluk and it is ready to roll on some gravel and single track.  I told my wife I was thinking about calling it J Lo because this bike has some "junk in the trunk", she thought that was funny but not too crazy about me riding a bike with that name.  18 years of marriage tells me I better go with my wife on this one :-)

Thanks to Cycle City Bike And Running Company for getting me hooked up with another great ride!
