spring riding

There are things you shouldn't ride through...

unless you're willing to follow through.

The winter biking is still very good out in Bicentennial Park. (Not much slush like this!) More people are starting to commute to work - most on studded tires; some braving their routes without the extra grip. I've heard that some people are getting the road bikes out, but most of us are still a few weeks away from that.

Longtime Anchoragites know that just because the spring equinox has passed doesn't mean we won't wake up one morning to find a few inches of fresh snow on the ground.

You'll see that the first few weeks of our schedule is posted here - check it out, then come join us. The meet & greet is a terrific way to connect with club members and find out more about us. See you there!

I did my first two commutes this last week. On Sunday we biked Elmore Road, the Campbell Creek trail, and Lynx, Coyote, and Viewpoint trails to a spiritual gathering in the afternoon. The park trails were still great.

Then on Wednesday we biked home from work. Chester Creek trail ranges from dry pavement to slush to packed snow to smooth frozen overflow. I definitely recommend studs but my hubby made it almost all the way home on his regular mtn bike tires. He's a stud -- I have studs.

see you on the trails!
