home from the desert physically, not mentally

The hardest part about going to Arizona in February (deep New England winter or mild) is the transition upon returning home.

We made our transition via two days in Vermont snowboarding and I then went out on a bike ride in 35F weather with soggy ground (thanks to a mild thaw). Probably should have waited a day (Sunday was frozen) but would have dealt with even colder temperatures. Still struggling....

I highly recommend going to Tuscon in February to ride your singlespeed with a bunch of great people and celebrate our friend Dejay's birthday (and his father). I have half the 'race' on film which will make for quite a bit of editing work to do once we finish our chores around the house.

In the meantime I suggest you watch this video from Devon Balet and read a few words he wrote over at Mountain Flyer Magazine.

Thats why I'm not going till March this year. Hope I come home to spring instead of more winter.

Yeah, putting on a suit and heels on Monday and then winter riding clothes this past weekend felt crueler than usual after after two weeks in the desert.
