Gotta Love the Weather

We have been having amazing weather for this early in March. Sunny skies and temperatures in the high 40s to low 50s. That's almost shorts weather in Michigan! It's a great time to get some outdoor riding in. But not on the road bikes. There is too much dirt, salt, water, mud and even snow still on the roads to travel via skinny tire. So it's been mountain bike time. Yesterday I took Ian out for a short 6 mile ride, trying to get him ready for the JDRF season. He did great, even on a couple of pretty serious hills we climbed. It will be interesting with three of us in the house training for the October Death Valley ride. We should always have a riding partner. I can hardly wait for a nice spring rain to clean the roads so we can get the fast bikes out.

First team ride is April 11.
