Newsflash: Ice Is Slippery

A lesser goal I have this year is to be able to get outside on my bike every month this year. In Colorado, this is very doable. It gets a little hairy a few months (mainly, January and February), but this past Sunday, we were able to get out for a nice ride.

As nice as it was, there was still some ice out on the trails ... and poor Brandon took a spill about halfway through our ride.

See that ice patch behind him? No way to avoid it.

Someone is now a bit muddy ...

We didn't let it discourage us (much) - it just slowed us down on the ride home since he was banged up a bit (but not broken!).

Tri dino Gustave tagged along in a plastic bag so he wouldn't get gross.

The current forecast is to be nice again this weekend, so hopefully I'll have more pictures to share next week.
