Riding Outside - A Novel Idea

Saturday (March 5th) we woke up to big, fat snowflakes falling from the sky (and collecting on the ground).
Tamara's phone rang continuously as folks wanted to inquire if we were really going to ride. I know there are plenty of hardcores on our team that have been riding outside all winter, but this was our first official outside team ride of the year. Those that showed up at Big Sky Bikes (13 in all) were treated to snow, graupel, sunshine, and lots of dirty spray coming off of un-fendered tires. We rode up Ninemile to the end of the pavement, up Roman Creek, and then came back on Mullen. I'm looking forward to next week, when there will be enough daylight to ride after work!
