I haven't been out riding since our Whistler trip in August after I hurt my wrists and my buddy Sean fubared his knee. Well no more.
I pumped up my flat tires, found all my gear last night, and rinsed out my 4 month idle water pack. I didn't smell anything, so it must be fine. :) Then I went up to Auburn to ride the Clementine Loop with Sean this morning. It was a nice foggy drizzley morning. I took it pretty easy and didn't push it, and had a great time. It was quite wet and cold on the toes, but there was no real rain to speak of.
The ride was followed by the obligatory Taco Tree visit.
