Losing one hour of sleep is a small price to pay for an extra hour of daylight in the evening. The warmer temps, melting snow, and extending light in the evening are all good things (Dug- yes, this means I am losing interest in backcountry and getting more and more excited for mountain biking. Deal with it).
Yesterday after work, Jamie, Tony and I met for a mountain bike ride in Corner Canyon (Draper). We rolled out of Jamie's driveway by 5:45 and rode for about 1.5 hours.
I was surprised how dry the lower trails were. We only had about 5 or 6 snow patches to navigate and they were only about 20 feet long. The rest of the trails are in great shape.
I lost another sprint to Jamie at the top of the jeep road climb. One of these day's I'll learn how to knock him off his line before I put the hammer down.
With the temps this warm, I'm thinking more and more about breaking out the lights.
