Talking My ride today

A couple days ago we had about 28 inches of snow in my yard. My grass is still mostly covered with snow. But today I just had to go for a ride. It was great.

Here is our ride......

My gal and I left the house about 2pm and rode up to Cripple Creek. Beautiful day, but we did not see many bikes out. There were places it got a little cold, but for the most part the temps were nice and the trip was great.

For the most part, all the roads were clear and good riding, but there were a few places with snow melt across the road that was on the verge of freezing, but good in general.

After all the snow we have had in October, I was a little amazed that we could ride over to Cripple Creek the first of November.

After having the wettest October on record (no snow yet) the sun finally popped out yesterday. Supposed to be nice the biggest part of the week! Lot of wet leaves on the back roads but it beats snow and ice. Mississippi River is out of it's banks but it happens often enough that folks are pretty well prepared. Any day riding is a good day. :thumbsup:
