I never did get out to ride today. Lots of fat snow flakes and 30 degree temps motivated me to get a few things done around the house. I did, however, find myself without beer on a Sunday so a trip to the bike shop fridge was in order. I wondered what the dirt was looking like with all this on/off moisture so I drove up Hwy 7 to Hall Ranch.
To be honest, I only walked a handfull of feet up the trail, but I've seen these conditions before. I felt as if I had just rolled into town the evening before a big race and gone to the course to check conditions. I was happy to find perfectly tacky dirt. Looking up the hill, I could still see some snow high up, but it looked like it would only take a small amount of sun to burn off.
Tuesday ride is ON! Bike shop at 6pm for a tour de Hall. Should be great conditions.
