Trails Loop Ride, January. 4, 2020

On Wednesday January 1st., 2020 New Years Day, We started out on a ride in Security/Widefield were we live and after only a few miles the dark clouds and WINDS started up so we cut the ride short at 11 miles and headed back to the storage unit to put the trikes away! Saturday January 4th., 2020 The temps were going to be 50F+ with lot's of sunshine, well the day started cloudy and at 35F but the clouds slowly went away so we loaded up the truck with the trikes and decided to do a Loop Ride. We again started at Bott Park but headed south down back streets to pick up the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail heading north. We rode up to Criterium Bicycles Shop and ate our brown bag lunch on the Crit Cafe's patio as the cafe is closed in the winter months. We then headed north again to pick up the Cottonwood Creek Trail heading East over to the Vincent St. Bike Lane/Trail that turns into the Nevada Ave. extension Bike Lane/Trail over to the University Shopping Center to again pick up the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail heading South. We were riding at a easy pace just happy to be outside on a nice Jan. day so soon after our COLD New Year's Day ride! 13 miles RT with lot's of little but steep inclines! Mostly Sunny with some high clouds and we found a "T-Bar accessory mount at Criterium Bicycles to add to JoLynn's front derailleur post so we can put double head lights on her trike! Here's a photo of our trikes at the Crit Cafe Patio and I will add a video when it's processed! :)
Crit Cafe Patio closed for the winter but a good place to eat a brown bag lunch! :)
