Mountain Bike Halmark Holiday
So…my wife comes to me this week with a proposition. This year, for Valentines Day, she wants to go ride together! My mouth almost hit the floor. No expensive dinner and flowers? No getting dressed up to go somewhere I really don’t want to? You really want to do what I want to do? Fantastic!
Historically, I have not been a fan of the Halmark holiday, but this year…we should actually have fun together. Unfortunately…it is raining here in Georgia, so today I am going to do a road ride, install a new suspension fork on her Felt Virtue 4 and get ready to go on a Valentines Day ride tomorrow. That…along with the RP23 and new bars, should bring her ride to a point that it is much more trail friendly for a light rider. The current Rock Shox Recon coil is harder to tune to her weight and is unneeded weight on the front end of the bike.
Jenn has not been able to ride lately because we have been incredibly busy at the new house. She has been attending a lot of spin classes at the L.A. Fitness down the street, so her hard work at classes should pay off on the trail. She has always been great at the technical aspect of riding so the rest comes with saddle/spinning time.
What can I say? I am a lucky guy…I am having a mountain bike Halmark Holiday! Here is to you and yours!
