A passion for cycling + a garage full of bikes + a 12 mile commute to work + a camera phone + a video recorder. Let's see what happens.

Early Morning Cyclist Inspiration
It wasn't actually that inspirational but it was early. The moon over the fresh show was pretty nice actually. Today was my first lake crossing of the year. I turned my lights off and was guided by the light of the full moon and morning's early light.
But that was as good as it got.
The lake had 5" of snow with a power sapping crust on it. As Strava my witness, I was able to churn out a steady...3.5MPH over the lake. The trails had the same crust and going up any grade over 0.1% was nearly impossible so it was roads for the rest of the trip.
