|I was hoping to get out to Riverside today for a focused session of riding, but I'm happy with what I got in. I spent time tooling around the 'hood this morning when it was cold and the snow was powdery. That's easy riding.|
|Where the snow has been plowed, it's denser and takes more energy to ride through.|
As the day progressed and got a bit warmer, the snow got wetter and sort of slick.
|After a couple washouts, I ended up taking air out of the tires, which helped.|
|I'm going to go hit the HD trails again and see how they feel now. I suspect they'll be harder to ride and more prone to front-wheel washouts. I rode on a couple errands -- the streets are easy-peasy with these tires. Until now, my main snow riding bike was 2.3" tires on the Rawland.|
|Perfect cold-weather eatin'. Buddy Stine turned me onto an excellent Korean recipe website with a bunch of videos. Oh boy. This is the Dakgalbi (Spicy chicken/veggies). Damn good. And easy. If you make it: double up on the paste, so you have enough for an easy batch the second time you make it.|
