Red Rock Canyon #2

Brisk and chilly this morning for Red Rock Canyon #2. One of those rides requiring the full complement of kit: balaclava, long sleeve base, jacket, winter tights, and shoe covers. Summer riding is nice because of the minimal gear required, but there is something special about kitting up for winter rides. I’m reminded again how the right gear makes or breaks the experience. The lesson:

Gear matters.

Get the right bike for the ride, yes. But, don’t stop there. Spend the extra dough to get the right equipment for the environment and season. You’ll be glad you did.
