|I decided to use the Blackborow DS since they predicted snow- good thing I did!|
We had seen a Saturday which left many icy patches here and there, but otherwise, it was much as it had been- cold and barren. I ran into a couple places where I felt the rear tire slip a bit, and it made me wonder, how would this be with a fresh dump of snow on top? Well, it didn't take long to find out.
By 10:00am it was snowing really steady and it was piling up. The snow slacked off in intensity for a while, but we probably got somewhere around 4" after it was all over. It was still snowing though when I left from work, so it wasn't as bad as it was later on.
Fortunately the snow had enough moisture in it that it stuck to the icy spots well and I had no issues with traction going back home. It was fun riding in fresh snow again. My Lou's were probably overkill, but the Blackborow DS needs to be ridden and this was the best reason I had to get it out in quite a while. Since the first of the year, as a matter of fact.
|First tracks on the way home.|
Soon I'll be hitting up mushy gravel roads and plotting Trans Iowa stuff. The season is about to get kicked off here soon......
