Hayward Hill: Nightmare ride.

Got a few blocks away from home 
then decided to turn around to grab a rainshell (smart move!)

That cow had lots of company

Pictures never do heavy snow justice, but at 35 degrees
these flakes were monster and they just kept coming

Very glad for my tires, because I wouldn't have made it up this hill otherwise

Hayward Hill, one of the most dramatic views in the county

It was coming down so hard, so foggy and super soggy.

Just drenched! Thank goodness for layers

Thorp mill on the way back

The eyelashes were so dramatic, had to take a picture

just warm enough for all the muck to stick

Thank goodness for fenders

Hardest part of the ride was hike a biking this mile stretch of the JWPT

An old friend, seen this bird many a time

signs of spring

Never been happier to see Klocke Rd


Almost home, dynamic weather for sure

Under 3 hours, was really quick about it
no fun riding in that kind of slop, well, less fun :)

297.08 mi 11,323.1 ft of elevation for February
