My wife needed to recertify her Wilderness First Responder training, so it was a good excuse for a trip to Lake City. Temperatures were predicted to be really cold, with barely any snow. Time for a bike ride to a peak climb.
Away I cruised, with temps around -12 F to ride the 13 miles of snow covered pavement and dirt to the bottom of the Winter Route up Sunshine (14,001 ft). Near the end of the ride, I came across either a bobcat or a lynx in the road, who quickly got shy and hid in the willows!
I stashed the bike at the bottom and got hiking...
Notice the new seat bag with blue VX42 fabric. There's 5 of them in production - order now!
A big hill without much snow on it followed.
near the top, but still a ways away, I made the call to turn around, I was moving really slow, was near official turn around time, and not feeling quite perfect, so down I went... no summit but a really good day in the mountains.
There's something nice about riding a bike with an ice axe.
