Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Robyn on the Icicle Creek Road
I've not been here since a weeklong hike in the Enchantments in 2009. I'm reminding myself why it's so worth it. This is the view not too far from the Snow Lakes trailhead, on the grounds of Sleeping Lady. I unsuccessfully entered this year's trail pass lottery this past February. It doesn't matter. I have a lot of conditioning to accomplish if I ever want to successfully do that hike again. Perhaps I'll manage it. Part of the reason I bought this Element is so I can use it for car camping and hauling my bikes. I'll be selling my Corolla in the next few months and I've given away my old Chevy camper. It's part of a bittersweet but necessary downsizing from my old life. Here's to the past disappearing in the rear vision mirror of my new rig.
