After I dropped Z off at school, I was able to sneak in a little ride before opening the shop. I was hankering for a mellow spin - something easy and scenic. South St Vrain Hwy was just the ticket. I also wanted to ride something that felt like home - the XO was my ticket to comfy and relaxed.
I started on Old South. I ride Old South all the time. It's a good way to get to Hall Ranch for a mountain bike ride, or a good way to get out of town on 7. Old South give me that peaceful easy feelin.
Highway 7 is always good, too. I love me some SSV Canyon.
Turned around to take this shot in the narrows. It's superbly fun rolling back down thru it.
I didn't have a destination in mind really. Just a little river therapy. I hiked out towards a big ol rock in the middle of the stream to sit for a bit. The South St Vrain Creek has always put me in a better place.
Not too shabby for a 45 minute pre work ride. I definitely arrived back at the shop in a better mood. Great way to start the day.
