Hard Pack Dry Trails Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, Cross Training

Here it is December 10th, 2011, and the exposed trails are bone-dry. Even the tree-shaded trails in canyons are super-perfect damp with the best trail conditions (traction) all year. This is a TREAT, because usually before December the trails are a sloppy mess, as they were a few weeks ago after heavy rains.

Kind of makes me wish I had a Moots Psychlo X RSL cyclocross bike to really race around on the super nice trail surface. But today I rode the closest thing to it in a mountain bike: my 21.7-pound Moots MootoX RSL hard-tail 29er.

Bike computers

My 4-month-old Garmin Edge 500 has failed, and needs to be replaced. It and another Edge 500 were flaky from the start, so why should I be surprised, along with the incompetent Garmin software corrupting months of altitude data. On the road bike, my SRM Power Control 7 has been rock solid reliable.

Cross training

The thing I’ve found is that having both a quality mountain bike or three and a quality road bike really makes the daily ride more interesting, averting the monotony of the same roads every day— I just go for an MTB ride instead. Or sometimes I ride MTB early, and road later in the day. Keeps things interesting, and the muscular cross-training effect is very worthwhile.
