The evening in pictures.
1) Dropped a more money than originally planned at the bike shop in prep for this weekends ride. New tires, new tubes plus spares, spare spokes, honey slinger waffles, and body glide (not for biking).
2) New tire installed on one wheel (right is the new one). These new tires should be just the ticket for all of the gravel riding. The big knobbies go back on for single track riding.
3) Just about packed. A few things drying and then the last stuff to collect in the morning.
4) Sweet new old peacoat I picked up this evening. This was my dads in the navy so we are talking close to 40 years old now. This is fitness related in that he doesn’t fit into it anymore and four years ago neither would I. It is in great condition and I look forward to wearing it this winter.
I’m working from home in the morning. Originally the plan was to head north after work but after running into my buddy at the shop tonight we are going to leave around noon.
I’m hoping to talk him into a trail run and a dip in the water somewhere on the way up.
Low of 38 tomorrow night in the tent. I’ve got my heavy sweatshirt and hat with.
