The old girl gets the call !

Well I've been spending my winter rolling out on the ice trails with my fat and 29 plus bikes. But we have a very small window of pretty clear roads were I can roll out on the road. So I figured the old girl TT bike would be just the ticket, and she's always fun to ride. Now it looks like we are getting some snow rolling in Tuesday so it will be back on the trails and the old girl will wait a little longer to come back out.

Looks like you're flyin'. I fear for your shadow's safety at those speeds.

I did a quick check on the roads the day before, and just couldn't pass up a road ride. Just give it a couple days and the roads will be covered in salt and sand again.
