    Today is the last day of summer... but it's 93F today.

    I am looking forward to fall and the cooler temps next month.

    Good by Rubey Tuesday,
    Who could hang a name on you.
    When you change with every new day
    Still I'm gonna miss you

    It was a lovely mid-60's while I was riding last night and it dipped down into the upper 40's over night. Hello Fall! I better get busy chopping fire wood!

    Best time of the year! It was a chilly 41 degrees this morning.

    I love this time of year with all the autumn decorations and pumpkins and indian corn and all that crap. :D HOORAY!

    This is Colorado so anytime after July is fair game for first snowfall that low. But, yes the first big snow usually happens in October. The mountains were predicted to get up to a foot out of this storm though. Loveland started making snow Wednesday.

    I guess rides in the high country are now officially over. :disgust1:

    "Fall is here and all I have to say is FVCK FALL! Fall... I hate the Fall, what bull****. Oh, the leaves change colors - the leaves change colors for 2 days. Then a big wind comes and you got nothing but sticks the rest of the year.

    And the weather is completely nonsense. You never have a proper fall coat, nothing you wear is right. The sun is out so you're sweating, but there's a breeze so you're freezing... it's not weather it's malaria! It's 80 is 30 it's 60 it's 20 and my balls can't take it... big and then small... big small big small."

    I dug out my jacket for my commute in this morning. I love fall. I can't believe I used to not really have it in San Diego. I mean, sure, it was a bit cooler and the palm fronds would fall off or something, but it wasn't the same.

    Studs on your bike will do nothing for you in deep powder. That is the only condition I really struggle in. But I'm always laughing the whole time because it's sheer comedy!

    Very true on Both counts. the only reason I would say Studs for a Picture like that is that It was on the road , and the Plows and salt , tend to make a Layer of ice under all that fluffy powder.

    I imagine riding that road in any amount of snow would incur a high level of suck. I think it averages 8% or so for about 5 miles. It'd pretty much be a waste anyways as riding those trails in the snow would be one of the more retarded things you could do. I'm generally sketched to ride them in the wet.

    I love fall here because it means far less tourists in town from the bay area.

    And now it's time to switch to hanging out with my winter friends.
