Dirt Roads on a Balmy December Afternoon

There is something magical about blasting down a dirt road, over a rise in the road or around a sweeping bend. At my age, “blasting” may be less explosive than it was 30 years ago although feeling the rear wheel breaking loose still brings a smile to my face.

Today may have been my last ride for 2017 although I am hoping for a few more unseasonably warm days prior to the holidays!
