    Default Salon Ride Reports 12/2-12/8 Beginning End of the Decade

    All the snow of last week melted but it was bitterly cold this afternoon in my part of Quebec Province continuing the freezing of the lake.

    So, I took the fat bike with the Lauf around the lake on the road for that half and through the woods on that half of the laps. Did only two laps as the through the woods part was quite the struggle due to the slope to the water and the icy/slippery leaves and my lack of nerve.

    A nice 90 minutes but the after ride hot chocolate felt like the best that I ever had even though it was from a Tim Hortons can and made with water.

    40 miles in chilly, wet Berlin. Very happy to stumble upon a cup of coffee and half a sandwich!

    I hadnít thought about the whole decade thing...

    Not a ride picture. Virtually every morning itís clear and then every afternoon it gets hazy like this:

    Thatís smoke haze making the sun that colour. We are very lucky we are not directly affected. Bushfires are properly dangerous and scary. But itís been more than a month now and weíve only just ticked over into Summer.

    I want my air back.

    Yeah, I've got a new level of understanding of what it's like for people who live places where this is just what the air is like. It's shite.

    Snowed today. Spent 4 hours in the trees.









    Poles and gaiters were good additions given the snow depth. Figured out R & L eventually.
