Today was the annual Worst Day Of The Year Ride. Statistically, this week is the coldest of the year. I skipped the ride last year because it rained and the trails were muddy, and it seemed a little disingenuous to call a day the "worst" when there was little or no chance of dieing of hypothermia. It was 0 degrees F this morning, without considering the wind chill. I suppose that whole global warming fad is over. It warmed up to 10 degrees by the time the ride started. But it was sunny and not terribly cold in the woods. A good ride, an interesting mix of urban riding and snow covered trails in Ann Arbor.
My last time on frozen trails I used worn 1.9 Kenda Karmas. Sketchy. I used 2.20 Specialized tires today. They were very steady on the frozen trails. I heard it takes 7 years to master a sport. Shoot, I should have mastered mountain biking more than twice by now. I am still figuring it out. I'm still trying to figure me out.
