mountain biking, st. louis style

maybe it's not st. louis style, maybe it's my style. when i get a chance to go off roading, i have to take it. knowing that the weather was set to warm up after thursday, i set off for castlewood even though i also knew there was ice and snow on the trails. i figured i'd just wing it.

and i did have to wing it. the lone wolf trail was ice. i wasn't doing that. a lot of the flats were ice. not doing that. but the ranger station climb was dry dirt and rock! so in old school 1997 style i did repeats. i did a bunch of ranger station climbs and some cardiac climbs with some trips down justin's.

it wasn't ideal, but i got some climbing and downhilling under my belt.

I had a grand plan to hit the trail afterwork yesetrday only to find a rear flat on both bikes!!!

An hour on the road is nowhere near as fun or mind clearing as an hour offroad.....
