Ava chases down a neighbor
Springtails - aka "snow fleas" there were 100's of thousands on the forest floor next to the pond
Skunk cabbage at it's best

In addition I went out for about 3 hours in Douglas State Forest on the Single Speed. It was good to finally go out for a proper mountain bike ride.

So embarrassing - at least I look sort of fancy donning last years Bikeman kit (new kit coming soon)
Next post - hopefully a success story from the Fat Tire Classic @ Winding trails next weekend. The deal is, if I place within the top five as a CAT II - the USAC will bump me to CAT I. I begged and pleaded for a promotion with my race resume - but none of it was USAC sanctioned (all EFTA races). Crossing fingers nothing goes horribly wrong.
