Those winter storms are magic, and I went out right after a good soaking, the clouds were surprisingly clearing but it was quite the scene! As I was climbing I began to get a cyclic popping and hopped off a few times to look for the culprit, with no luck I pedaled on until the chain snapped, well I wasn't too surprised I guess. There it lay oddly in not two but in three pieces! Leaving me with just my quick links and apparently not he little chain I keep in my kit, so I tried a trailsside repai but found the chain way too short so chainless I went down the hill. With it being such an incredibe moring, I did the repair at home where I had a chain and back to the trail i went, obsessed I know..... The reward was sweet as I rode in the storm!

Man there is some warmth coming in, 80s are forecasted and I am not wild about that but luckily it's still january for a few more days......Breezy but very sweaty ride. The sun and rain has turned things mighty green, apache flyovers are becomign very frequent and I love it!
The poopstorm of riders getting after it at Hawes, so tempted to go ride Gold to have it to myself but I am justy a sucker for long climbs and descents.....Got an early start, my niterider is acting up, so relied on my magicshine completely, kinda risky but it's been flawless lately.
