I took the new bike out onto the dirt for the first time. It snowed a couple of days ago, and I was a little bit worried that there might be some mud out there, but it has been windy, so I thought it would be okay. There were a few spots that were damp, but no real muddy areas.

I rode out to the foothills trails, and made my way down to Embudido and back. On the way out there is a pile of rocks that I have always been afraid to ride down, preferring to dismount and walk, rather than find myself bruised and battered. This time I managed to ride down the rocks, for the first time ever. I think that I am going to like this new bike.

On the way back to the house I stopped and took this picture of the new bike, with Sandia Crest in the background.

It was a nice day, and there were lots of people out riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and jogging. The temps were in the upper 50s.
