Midwinter Palisades, After Dark
Thanks to my bat-shit-crazy buddy Dave, who organized, and my other bat-shit-crazy-buddy Dan, who threw down, there was a 3-strong fatbike ride tonight on the super sweet trails at Palisades.
"Super sweet?", you may ask, when it was icy as hell on all the streets, sidewalks and parking lots of the spo-lowlands. Yes, in a word. I was afraid the trails would be all slicknasty, but the little bit of snow that fell last night was all intact and just this lovely soft, tacky blanket over the harsh, post-holed, frozen, worn-in singletrack trails, and there are some sections that are all bermy and fatbike flowey and honestly, rad. So yeah, super sweet.
I feel so happy and so lucky to have a fatbike at this 5 minutes. And just plain old so happy.
