Yup, it's the new year. There's a part of me that still can't believe it's 2011 already. The last month just seemed to fly by without me even realizing it. Anyways, on with the new! I spent New Years up in Breckenridge. Got to meet up with an awesome friend and did a little partying. Of course, right when I start traveling again, the temps drop. When I got into Breck it was -9, and then a few hours later when going out to celebrate it dropped all the way to -24. Still really fun. Every time I go there, I always want to spend more time.
Unfortunately, I couldn't stay too long and had to come back to the valley. After the last snow storm, it has also gotten really cold here. When I left on today's ride it was around 22 outside. Not too bad really, plus the sun was out so it felt a bit warmer. The roads are all covered with icy snow, so I rode my mountain bike instead. It felt super weird at first, but soon after it felt very natural again.
Even though the temps kept dropping, the views were amazing as usual on the climbs. Hopefully things warm up a bit more. Especially since I am going to be spending a lot more time outside these next few months. Hope every one had an awesome New Years, and are enjoying there new start as much as I am.
