10 December 2009 - 12:02Old Man Winter Arrives
Wouldn’t you just know it? Just when my knee stops being a pain in the rear, and I was starting to get fired up about riding in the cold, we get hammered with 8+” of wet heavy snow. I think it will be a while before we see the trails again, unless of course there is something to this whole global warming thing.
I used to get excited about the snow, but this year I did not buy a pass at the mountain (cut backs you know, this whole economy thing), and well…
I guess it will be time for me to “winterize” Kermit, which basically means put the rigid fork on. I have a regimen of hill repeats I keep threatening to do. I still haven’t decided if I am actually training for 2010 or not.
And I’ll have to put the thick rubber on the back of the roadie and mount it in the trainer, just in case I decide to make good on the threats I’ve made in my head about riding it 3 times a week.
It might be interesting to hit SSAZ/SSUSA with a little bit of fitness, but we’ll just have to see.
