Have a lot to learn about riding mtn bikes in the snow
Posted Jan 22 2011 12:00am
Amy and I went to Cincy to ride in a mtn bike Time Trial. Up at 5:30, left by 7. Drove 2+ hours. Temps were about 6F at the start.
I couldn't keep my rear wheel from spinning out. There was at least 5 inches of fluffy snow on the ground. I fell what seemed to be about 20 times. Nothing major except once where I laid there hoping I hadn't separated my shoulder. I hadn't, thank goodness. This was mainly a hike a bike for me. Two big hills two push up. The first one was just as steep and longer than the one at the TT in Bend. My asthma kicked in at the top and I just stopped to get my breath. Glad I went. Good time outside and once I got moving I warmed up nicely.
Went to a get together with new ladies team in the city. Very fun and enjoyed meeting everyone.
I'm exhausted and ready to slumber for a while. Wish I wasn't all weepy though
