The St. Vrain Chain Gang Cycling Club is a recreational group I founded a couple of years ago, and now run with another fellow cyclist/friend. We often have 2 rides per weekend, one being a skinny tyre road ride, the other a dirt/CX ride.
The weather forecast was looking real good for this weekend (about time after 3 weeks of basement riding due to snow). Well, refer back to first paragraph above - I think the odds of me hitting a bulls-eye on a dart board, while blindfolded, are greater than the chance the weather folks get the forecast accurate :). It "should" of been sunny and warm for our road bike ride, it actually turned out to be 95% overcast and down right nippy!. Still a great time was had by all, even if 75% of us were under dressed!.
Our dirt/CX ride turned out to be a little better, cold (low 30's starting out), but Sunny at least. We picked a route that took us along a dirt commuter trail; outbound this was certainly a test of our winter bike handling skills, and inbound it was a test of our mud handling skills!. Ice, Mud, Water, Snow we came across it all!. It was a great weekend to be out with the "Gang", as always!. Sunday bonus was 2 Golden Eagles fly across our path, got to love Colorado!.
Ride safe and often!.
