First “long” ride of the year

Yesterday, Nate and I decided to take advantage of the amazing weather by going on an extended bike ride after work. I left work at 3:30, met Nate downtown, and we worked our way to the Cherry Creek trail after that. An 1h10m and 23 miles later we made it to my house, just as the sun was getting ready to set. What an amazing early February it’s been. My lower back was hurting from the seat position, so I adjusted it today and hopefully it’s where it needs to be now. We’ll see.

In other news, I’ve got a busy evening of planning, packing, and programming my GPS for a trip up Longs in the morning. With any luck, I’ll be able to post live from the Summit!

Update: I’ve backed out on the Longs climb, as I’m not comfortable with the current conditions without a partner. My particular concern is icing on the homestretch due to the long warm spell followed by the sudden storm. Emergency contact people, don’t worry about me.
