Sticks & Stones

Got my first ride of the season on dirt today. Had a baseball coach's meeting after work but had enough time in between to get in a short spin on the dirt. I went over to Sticks & Stones and rode for a little over a half hour. Not long but it was nice to be on something other than pave.

Sticks & Stones is a very fun trail that is quite windy and twisty with lots of small hills, burms, turns, granite elements and fun. It was very dry but there were still a couple sections that had snow/ice that I was careful around.

Garmin Edge 305 Summary Data
Total Time (h:m:s) 0:35:27 9:13 pace
Moving Time (h:m:s) 0:32:36 8:28 pace
Distance (mi ) 3.85
Moving Speed (mph) 7.1 avg. 14.5 max.
Elevation Gain (ft) +280 / -282

Avg. Heart Rate 157 bpm Zone 4.3

As you can see it was short and not very fast, but considering the little walking that was done to avoid the snow and ice it wasn't too bad. Weather this week looks pretty good so hopefully the rest of the snow and ice will be short lived.

Regardless, it was nice to ride the 29er SS since it was getting a bit lonely.
