I have been riding Syringa the last 2 days, mind you the day before yesterday was winter solstice aka the first day of winter. It hasn't really looked like winter though. So, I parked the fat bike and dug out the mountain bike.
Weather has been warm, like 50 degrees warm. Trails have dried out, except for a couple mud holes on the way up from Pine Street. Ice and snow are gone. And there is some new art for you to stop at, take a breather and get cultured. In conclusion, January is right around the corner and I promise these conditions will not stay, so you should go ride...like right now.
