All their stuff looks badass! I'm glad I'm done with riding in the cold, though.

I'm visiting my girlfriend in Seattle this weekend. We were driving home form somewhere, passing Woodland park; we weren't even supposed to be in that area, we'd just missed a turn and the GPS rerouted us. I saw a bunch of tents, in the park with 'Kona' and 'Specialized' and other bike manufacturer logos on them.

At first I thought it was some sort of bike show and thought about stopping. Then I saw tape marking off the course and realized what was going on, and obviously I *had* to stop. Found some parking and dragged the woman into the park to spectate.

She'd never seen a cyclocross race before, had no idea what it was about. We watched one of the junior races. Imagine gangly 10-year-olds on their dad or mom's bike, hauling them over barriers and pushing them up run-ups and threading through S-turns with aplomb. After 5 minutes my girlfriend was like: "If we have kids, they have to do this."

Uh oh! Somebody's getting married and they don't even know it, yet.

Not a bad thought, though.

I think there's a cyclocross race here this weekend, I want to go check it out.

We might actually get a little snow here today, I'm kinda excited to get to ride home in it Still haven't put the studded tires back on though.

Do it! They are a good time. Great atmosphere, especially if you know someone racing.....

Be careful though, they will suck you in.

Fuuuuuuuuck

~16F on my ride to work this morning. With the wool blend base layer, wool sweater, windproof jacket, sexy thermal tights, wool hiking socks, waterproof hiking boots, balaclava, and $16 ski gloves from Costco, I actually stayed pretty warm for the ~4 mile ride in. Only problem was when I hit the hills, I couldn't get going fast enough to keep my glasses from fogging. Might just have to stick them in my pocket next time.

I dunno, looks to be the ideal MTB for your locale. Get one and go bombing through Demo on it!

Ugh..... didn't even make it to 30 degrees today. I chose house projects over riding. Although one of them is a backyard rink, so it's not all bad.

Gotta get out tomorrow. Once out, it's not bad, just gotta do it!

Strangely enough, I'm not minding the cold commute so much. Not sure I'd go ride around just for fun right now, but the cold brings a new challenge
