Title: A short ride's better'n no ride
Post by: Gary on January 17, 2009, 05:03:18 PM
Got to break out for a run toward Santa Fe. Overall under 100 miles but she hasn't been out all year.  :-\

Headed out just about 11:00 with the temps in the upper 30's. You guessed it, defintely a long sleeve shirt and a t-shirt weather. Gloves a must.

Here's a few shots for those of us that couldn't get out and ride today.

Made a quick stop at Camel Rock (or Dragon Rock to some).

Headed on into Santa Fe, took care of some business and picked up a handful of maps at Triple A for my upcoming trip to So Cal.

Stopped off for a few shots at the Rio Grande on the return trip.

And here's a couple just before breaking into Los Alamos, also on Hwy 502.

By the way, for those experiencing the low or negative temps, in was in the upper 40's on the return trip. A beautiful day and it felt great to be in the saddle. Sad to say this was my first ride for 09.  :'(

Well Gary your pictures made my 60 mile OKC metro ride seem very boring.......Saturday was my first ride of 09 as well, first ride in several weeks actually.
But it did feel nice to get some wind time. :)
