I’ve just come back from a nice easy ride- the first in a couple of weeks. It was a light, easy, low-key ride. Out to Iron Mountain and back, with some minor detours and wanderings, for an estimated 12 miles. It’s too mushy for off-road explorations right now- wet, with freeze/thaw cycles softening the earth.
Weather was beautiful. 47F and a slight breeze from the NW made the trip out enough of a challenge, and made the return almost perfect. And the post-ride beer tasted just fine. Buckbean Orange Blossom Ale.
