Rode into the darkness today and it was a little depressing . Winter which has been here in all it`s cold anguishing glory for a little while now is starting to get me down . I miss my singletrack
pretty bad right now , and tonight I got to pass by all those trailheads while the snow noisely and unshamefully let me know it was under my tires . I seriously think it was laughing at me today .
on top of conners hill surrounded by snow, fog ,
cold wind , ice and no sign of great riding
Another gripe of mine with winter is the complete lack of awareness by everyone down in the valley at this time of year . I just about ran into two people today as I let them know I was coming but they didn`t know what to do . As I narrowly pass by them they seemed surprised that bikes run in the winter time as well . There are lot`s of bike tracks in the snow .
The temperature seemed to really drop once the sun was gone and I was submerged into a cold , dark wintery tomb . It was just me and my bike in the valley , I think even the animals were hiding . The funny thing is I usually like being all alone in the valley but not tonight .
one of the citys river valley rest stops , a great
place to stop and warm up , or smoke some crack ,
or bring a hooker , or smoke some crack with a
hooker , or hide out after you robbed a liquor store ,
or freshen up in the middle of a hike , or learn how to
play crib , or do some cocaine get really messed up
and try to swim across the river , or dump a body .
the last one actually happened here , and I`m sure I`m
not far off with the others
