I had a GREAT time!.
The sand was damp, which gave me better traction. Since nobody wanted to ride off-road going up, I took a totally new route and had a blast discovering new trails (and a few dead-ends).
On Saturday, the COLORS WERE AWESOME, had the electrics running all day. The bike even got warmer than normal plowing through the deep sand. In Summer, this would have been a sweaty ride.
Loved the new Route from the GLDS group.
Dropped the bike about 10 times, even with my knobbies.
It was cold at night, but I’m glad I went. Great memories to get me through the winter.
