An Expected Wet Roll Through Winter's Return




A ride I probably would have not taken part in if I knew my time at home would be longer. Yet with leaving tomorrow in the darkest hours of the night this one was a must do.

Wet sticky snow has enveloped the Edmonton area once again and I pulled out the fat bike  because: Why the fuck not? With the shitbike in desperate need of repair it was nice going back to something that runs incredibly well.

As I said. 'Wet sticky snow' is in the area and I looked like a champ on the five inch wide tires. The amount of snow that had fallen made travel quite difficult yet the Winter bike trampled through the snow like Charlie Sheen running through a shallow lake trying to get some more hookers and cocaine.

Over the years of owning this bike it showed it's true Winter prowess a few times. Not a lot sadly but today this bike was the king of the valley. I rode with confidence from Kinseman to Alexander Circle in Glenora. A much shortened ride after being sprayed by the five inch wheel with wetness non stop.

It was literally like an upside down shower. The water sprayed up and I didn't care. This short ride was indubitably awesome.

Just what the Doctor ordered.

One more tomorrow? Here is hoping.
