Things have been pretty boring in terms of riding lately, as I don’t have a ton of pictures or data to share.  I guess that’s what happens when most of my riding is done pre-dawn in the dark and cold of a typical weekday morning.  I was able to get out for a decent/fun pavement ride last Saturday morning on my mountain bike…..nothing like passing a few roadies on a mtb while climbing and descending Hwy 25.

Most of my riding has been done on my still-fresh-feeling Stumpjumper Carbon HT 29er….this has been just an absolute awesome bike.  Aside from the fun factor of being able to take it on a few trail sections during some of my pre-dawn rides, I’ve also been riding it thanks to its stability and its ability to quickly hop off the road if I sense a car or truck is coming up on me too closely and might not see my taillight in time.  Plus, with a hardtail 29er I don’t feel like I am losing too much speed on the pavement as compared to my Specialized Crux cyclocross bike.

I’ve also picked up running again, with my first run since Thanksgiving taking place just a few weeks ago.  And prior to Thanksgiving, I could count on one hand how many times I had run since the previous Spring.

A few random, yet typical, recent photos are below, along with some random Strava links.  More photos can be seen on my instagram page.
