December 2023, A bit of reprieve from the snow and cold

 The snow and cold has let up for a few days, we've been able to get in a couple of rides! 

Dec. 17. Errand and Lunch ride, a mixed trails ride and a brown bag lunch on a sunny day!

 Dec. 19. A ride to the Cottonwood Regional Park using the Pikes Peak Greenway and the Cottonwood Creek Trail. Still quite a bit of snow and ice on the Cottonwood Creek Trail, sunny but breezy and not quite as warm. 

Dec. 20, Today will be just a "FOOD RIDE", have to hook up the cargo trailer and get supplies and food for Christmas and Christmas Eve! Sadly, with the "shorter days" of winter not much TIME for a ride afterwards today but Thursday is looking decent, a bit chillier before the cold temps on Friday and possible lite snow might make a return for late for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and beyond! 

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanza, Peaceful Ramadan to all!! December is a very busy month of celebration for ALL of us!

December 2023, Sadly the SNOW has returned! :(

 Have to say, December has been a bit of a bummer as far as riding goes! We've had a pattern off snow, 2 days to melt, a couple of days that are sloppy but rideable and then more SNOW! We've been taking a lot more WALKS this month and even then have gotten caught in the snow more times this year than we can ever remember. Our rides have been short, errand rides, getting food on the best of the days but that takes a lot of time, packing up, shopping, unloading and with the daylight not lasting long, not much time left for a real RIDE! 

LOL, infact today is SLOOPY on the roads and trails and since we live in a apartment, we don't have a area to wash the crud off the trikes, Sunday, one of the warmer days this week, of course we have to go get FOOD so again not any real rides. Oh well, that's life when you can't afford a condo in FL. for the winter months! ;) So for now, we wish you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a awesome New Years!! All the best in 2024!
