 Trying to get back to the daily dog rides with Tate as we missed a few in Jan. between basement work, weather & lack of motivation on my part, Tate's always up for a bike ride though, even in inclement weather.

 Shadow rider!

 We're so fortunate to have miles & miles of this canal system to ride along, well maintained & virtually zero traffic until the fish start biting. I'm not positive but I think this canal runs from Lake McConaughy, north of Ogallala to Johnson Lake south of Lexington (I've only rode it from Lake Mac to Lake Maloney south of North Platte) perhaps some day when I get my dream adventure bike I will set out & explore it in it's entirety. 

 Spring is coming & I can't wait to get out there & do some 2-wheeled exploring, I've got some crazy ideas I want to try to get in this year with a bike & some lightweight camping gear as well as a one full day ride with friends followed by a smoker full of pork, slaw, beans &  a large washtub full of ice & beer, more details to come on that one but I will say it will be an open invitation for anyone who wants to have some fun on a bike on backroads with like-minded individuals. Now get out there on a bike & do your own kind of exploring, it's GREAT!

You should load up and ride that canal to Potters !!!! :) We have a ton of work to do out there . Looks like a great day on the bike.

I'll let you know ahead of time when I have a free Sat or Sun or I'll just take one off & head that way for a day of diggin' & cuttin'. You'll have to let me know what kind of tools to bring along. Which 3 trails received the most damage from the logging project?

I have to finish the stairwell out (hopefully tomorrow) then hang 3 doors before carpeting shows up next Monday. I can't wait to reap the rewards of a finished basement!
