December Ride

December 23, 2013
I was able to ride one last time in 2013 on Dec 18th.  I picked up the bike after getting new tires and went for a ride to Firehole Canyon.

I was able to ride one last time in 2013 on Dec 18th. I picked up the bike after getting new tires and went for a ride to Firehole Canyon.

With last week’s ride I successfully finished out a year of riding at least one time in each month of 2013.  To be fair, one of the rides early in the year was just around the block because it was quite cold, but I finished out the year with two rides of over 50 miles.  As with last month’s ride, December’s ride took place after getting new tires on a bike, this time my V-Strom, and ended up at Firehole Campground.

For my family members that live in warmer climates, yes, that is snow on the side of the road.  If you look closer you can see that the river in the background is frozen and snow covered.  Fear not, though, the temperature was a balmy 47 degrees F.  This ride was made much more comfortable by the heated handlebar grips on this bike, as well as the hand guards that keep the wind off my hands.

I will try to ride in each month of 2014, and I hope to have a different destination that close but still photographically interesting.

As a side note, this photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone, not a real camera.  I’m not trying to sell phones here, but I am very impressed with the quality of the pictures this phone takes.

Stay tuned,
