Two down , Eight to go

an Edmonton winter wonderland

I had said in an earlier post that I`d like to get a minimum of ten rides in on December . It is now the eighteenth of December and I am now at two . Sickness and kids Christmas concerts wreaked havoc on my fun December plans (no , I`m not saying kids concerts are not fun) . I am going to have to get my ass in gear to hit ten and with time off coming up for Christmas it should be feasible ..... Should be .

The planning for today`s ride was not the greatest . Start in Capilano , ride to Edmonton Queen , cross the bridge and come back on the north side . Not a bad idea for a quick one in the summer months, but in December with lots of fresh snow on the ground and lots of unpaved sections it was a bit rough to say the least. I think even on a Pugsly it would have been rough as all the snow covered the old foot traffic and made the unseen ruts very challenging at times to ride in .

All in all it was a great ride , probably cause I haven`t been on a bike for a while . The freedom and rush of being on a bike can never be duplicated ..... That was until I got to unplowed car happy Ada boulevard .

it`s reopening on Monday boys and girls !
happiness was when this ended
