I have been hitting up Lake Hodges as the after-work ride as of late. It is right on the way home at it only take a handful minutes to be out on the trail after getting off the freeway.
Here is Nichol working a log ride.
Critters seen along the trail.
Views from the trail behind and above the boat launch.
A mechanical on the Tuesday ride turned me into a reluctant single speeder. Of course it happened right after the apex of the ride.
So I have not dusted my night-time riding gear in quite sometime. As an after-work ride in January chasing the sun is always part of the equation. The sunsets have been pretty awesome as of late so “losing” the race with the sun is its own reward.
