Fat Biking 36:00 [3] 3.6 mi (10:00 / mi)

Got a surprise 1/2" of powder this morning, before it switches over to a day of rain. Drove Jess and her best friend Daisy down to Delaney (half a block) and did fast loops around the main field on the "go anywhere" crust while the dogs cavorted along beside me. Excellent smooth riding punctuated by frozen posthole minefields every time we crossed over a walking path.

Daisy had been so nervous about getting into the car that I walked them both home and then ran back to get the car and bike, rather than risk a soiled car seat. Trail running goal for Jan and Feb 2021 met: 1 entire block.

Road Biking 2:45:00 [3] 31.6 mi (5:13 / mi)

With soft snow still piled up everywhere, the only thing to do today was ride on the road. Almost abandoned the idea, given the gusty winds, but set out at 11 for uncharted backroads in Bolton and Berlin. Found some nice stretches and some new hills. This should be a good alternative to the Harvard Hills. Found two promising lunch spots at the 10 and 20 mile marks, and enjoyed a sunny lunch out of the wind at the second while looking out over an apple orchard.

Fat Biking 56:00 [3] 6.9 km (8:07 / km)

Early lap at RM, trying to hit the groomed trails before it warmed up too much. Dropped some PSI and had a successful ride. Bike clothes in the dryer now - hoping to get in a road ride to take advantage of this balmy, sunny day.

Road Biking 1:40:00 [3] 31.2 km (3:12 / km)

Rode the 20 mile hill loop at lunchtime. Ran into DH returning from a similar jaunt, and made tentative plans for a group ride on Monday. Strange to feel overdressed in February!

Monday Feb 22 #

Fat Biking 1:27:00 [3] 7.7 mi (11:18 / mi)

Finally got to ride the SnowDog-groomed MTB trails at Russell Mill. Amazing. Perfect ribbons of flowy, snowy singletrack weaving through the woods, with a banked turn at every corner.

XC Skiing 1:57:00 [3] 9.9 km (11:49 / km)

Jess and I explored our way all the way up to Old Frog Pond farm on the mostly-frozen ice. Lots of open water in the north impoundment forced us up into the shoreline cattails in several places. Stopped for a Snickers bite at Apple Point and had a hawk fly directly overhead as we soaked in the sunshine and the bluebird skies.

NW wind meant I needed face protection and a wind jacket on the way up, and I wished I could switch to shorts and t-shirt with the wind at my back and the sun in my face on the way back. Ran into Daisy and DH on the final pond loop, and more dog craziness ensued.
