Because we've had such a shortfall of snow this year, I've gotten a little tired of pushing fat tires around on pavement. Luckily, a practically new set of studded tires was in the garage just begging to be put on my trucker.
Ordinarily, I don't like to ride the trucker during the winter months. I don't want to have to replace parts that have worn out early do to corrosion from the chemicals that are put on the roads, so rides like this won't happen unless conditions are right.
Today the roads we're free of slush and were covered in a light dusting of snow from last night.
They brought me to my favorite place to stop and enjoy the view.

Off to an early start.
I succeeded on my second attempt at a self portrait. The first one may show up on the blooper post.
Taking yet another break. I have such a fat, lazy bike.
This was a hike-a-bike spot. Despite having only 3 lbs in the front tire I couldn't hold a straight line through the ATV ruts in the trail. Of course, since the ATV ruts are the trail, I guess I really can't complain.
I found it much easier to maintain forward momentum here.
This is all I had to show for my efforts, besides the big smile on my face, of course.
