Shakedown Ride Went for a shake down ride tonight. 4 degrees F with a 23 MPH wind. That adds up to -29 on the windchill scale. Ouch. It wasn't too bad. I went to the bike shop first to switch out my chain ring again. I'm down to a 32x20. Much better with such a heavy load. I got some sweet XC ski boot covers. The old yellow Salomon ones that have been hanging around the store forever. They worked surprisingly well over my Lake shoes. Thanks Pat. I think I am set for the Arrowhead 135 on Monday. I took some pictures of the Pugs all loaded up. All that is missing is a frame bag that my future Mother In-law is going to make tomorrow. Thanks Cheryl. Congratulations goes out to Brian and Heather on their recent engagement. You're a lucky girl Heathrow! Here are the pics (action shots courtesy of the one and only Austin : )
All loaded up with nowhere to go.
Me doing my best crazy model pose with the stylish solomon pilot boot covers.
Here I come.
There I go.
Last one. I've lost my stealth mode with those boot covers.
I'll try and get a few more up before I head to International Falls on Sunday. Until then...
