Gravel grinding.......sort of.

I couldn't resist the nicer weather on Sunday. Thought I would give the Mamasita a nice rest and decided to take out my Cannondale cross bike out. I am running 40mm knobby tires and they did pretty good. With the warmer temps the snow on top of the gravel was a little slushy which gave me a line holding lesson. That really works the upper body a lot. Should help me this spring on the tt bike. A straight line will get you to the finish quicker, right?

In my 25 mi ride there was not more than 100 yards of open gravel. The rest was ice and the already mentioned snow. Sure was nice to get out though. Beats the rollers that's for sure.

Have a nice safe evening. I hope you all have a Happy New Year!
