hope you get a mini stretch or two of warm weather yet. But if you're done, you had a good season! Great work and thanks for the inspirational posts!
I looked up the Gunks to find they are in the Catskills. I drive through the Catskills each winter on my way to the Adirondacks to ski. The Catskills are definitely a step up elevation-wise from my local trails a few hours to the south. The topography of NE PA into NY is fascinating. Poconos, Endless Mts., Catskills, Adirondakcs ... incredibly beautiful country.
This week I'll do my best to take advantage of what appears to be some upcoming favorable temps for riding (for the time of year) and get in a slightly longer ride on some more mellow trails to the south. Not quite ready to quit and as I am no longer punching a clock I may find a way to fight against the cold a little longer than I do typically. Some folks ride through the winter here. But I'm not a fan of icy/snowy rocks and roots. Tends to be less fun.
Had a great 7 mile hike with some great mates the other day. OG buddies who still fire it up while I pull out my Edge. The last time I did that same walk, my knees got a little achy due to not having been riding consistently at that time. But with a few good recent rides under the belt the knees felt fine.
Have a good week everyone
