First ride on new Humptulip Ridge tires. I wanted to do a mostly paved route with some gravel. Especially since I put the fenders on. Not a good day for testing as I had a 20 mph headwind. It does seem like these tires are good on the road and excellent on gravel. More riding is needed.
Up Jackson Creek to Lewisburg Saddle. When up the steep road. Big mistake. I had to get off and push.
Out Soap Creek to Wiles - Robison - Rifle Range. Then back through the old Adair base/ wildlife refuge. Back out to Independence Hwy and back on Pettibone.
Got an early start as the forecast was for afternoon rain. Sure enough the rain started 20 minutes after I got home.
Slightly different route than yesterday. Out over Circle to Harrison and the West Hills to 9th. Rain clouds crashed me home but didn’t catch me.
After 2 days of rain today was dry and cold. Not much wind though so good riding.
Got a flat but had a good spot in Monteith Park to fix it.
I had to be in town at 9 on club business. For the past week and a half it has been foggy and cold in the morning and warmer and sunny in the afternoon. I’ve been waiting until noon to ride. Today it was sunny in the morning!
Another not raining, not cold, partly sunny afternoon! Spectacular mountain views.
