During this cold day, I am remembering, a few years back, touring on a hot summer day...
trying to maintain a reasonable speed on that trail.
The bike is a 2009 Surly LHT ... a great bike for touring.
I put over 30,000 on that bike and it still is awesome, but now most of my riding is on a Felt E-Bike that I have outfitted for touring.
...but it is always good to remember. especially on a cold day like today.
