The Saturday Ride 2/8

Winter has officially beat me down. Perhaps it is my Okinawa roots. Tropical island blood doesn't fare so well in what PCG is calling frickity-frack cold. It's not just riding bicycles. It is everything. Weather alters how you live. I's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things. I know...there are bigger issues in the world. But everyday life is where the rubber meets the road. I have never been affected by the seasons like this before. Thankfully PCG is gracious enough to put up with me and my friends laugh affectionately at my depression speak. I did manage to convince a couple other fools to get out and tackle what I call the urban assault. Get out there folks! It's good for ya.

The most used bike in the stable lately.


Let's all chip in and get Nathan B some proper shoe covers. 

At the beginning of winter I like all the clothing layers. At the end...I hate all the clothing layers.

On the way to Lake Fayetteville we decided on a little detour.

Agricultural Park looked cool but was super sketchy. Several falls.

The lake trails were great. I had hard time keeping up.

 Jason B was planning to ride the trainer (again). Peer pressure.

Spying Zach M through the trees. Can you see him?

Managed to convince John N (pure roadie) to get out in it. 

Sunday I even convinced Mr. I DO NOT RIDE WHEN IT IS COLD to get out. I think it was more new bike inspiration then me. SYMOND Cycles custom steel 29er. Another sick paint scheme. Handmade right here in Fayetteville.

First ride on the new steed.

Good times. Here's to warmer days ahead.

Random night shots from downtown.

I really like blurred lights for some reason. Just move the camera while taking the photo.

Artsy fartsy.
