Marginal GS/PD conditions!

This winter was endless and this was the first GS/PD ride I was able to take in quite a while. It was on the top of the ridge at Laurel Summit, off RT 271 south of Johnstown. Elevation 2743′

The road was very icy, snowy and muddy and I had to ride the tire-track-width space to get to the end of the trail – an old gas well – nearly 7 miles down the road. And back.

The ride was relatively sloppy but I didn’t dump the bike, so that’s a good thing. Bottom line, any crappy day on a bike is better than any beautiful day in a car. A set of Continental TKC-80 knobbies aired down to about 20lbs of air pressure makes the job a bit easier, too!
