Xtreme Winterfest Ride
Beautiful day for January - sunny, with a light wind. Great weather for a bicycle ride! Luckily, today was the Xtreme Winterfest Ride.
We met at the Western Heritage Trail Center. The ride was up the River Trail to Riverside Grill. Hot dogs and chili were available for a small fee. Some rode back to the Trail Center for a presentation by Ron Hopp - CB Parks & Recreation. Ron talked about the CB trail system, history, present, and planned.
Met up with Todd & Dan (THOR) and I joined them with a longer ride. The trail between the 2 casinos was mostly snow packed. Later of the afternoon, the sun began to melt the snow - making sections the trail difficult to ride. Sure glad I have my fat, knobby tires!
All-in-all, it was a great day to be riding a bicycle.
