Post your riding plans or other spring miscellany here.
Today, I rode out to West Seattle and got tacos. I saw a lot of people riding electric unicycles, but the king of all of them was riding some kind of souped-up high speed version, wearing reflective motorcycle pants, knee and elbow pads, and a full down downhill mountain bike helmet. He passed too quickly to photograph, but it’s impossible that another Seattle Tarcker will not catch a glimpse of him on the trail.
I’m going to shoot for at least one 100+ mile ride each month through November. I’ve got about two months before it gets super hot and swampy. I definitely lost a bit of fitness over the winter, but I usually ramp back up to my deeply mediocre long ride capacity pretty quickly.
Goals: ride out to Deltaville on the bay (coast?), do a capital trail century (Rva to Jamestown and back), rva Charlottesville rva.
Spring has sprung, pretty much. Already got 3 windsurfing sessions under my belt. The water is still cold af but I bought warmer booties and gloves to go with the wetsuit and hat. That shit works, looks like you can buy your way to an early spring! Also did a little rock climbing. Dusted off the bike as well for some errands around town. Need to arrange a fire pit party in the forest and then spring’s official!
The recent nice weather is giving me some serious spring fever. Want to get some camping weekends in, maybe a sierras backpacking trip in if we can get away from the dogs, I want to do some modest cycling just to get outside more on a weekly basis. Last year was tough financially and with the new puppy and the surgery on the other one. I didn’t take any vacation time all year.
Went for a hike yesterday that was a bit of a disaster but hopefully this will shape up
