As luck would have it, my last dirt for 2014 was not the Gravel Grinder I had in mind, rather a two hour tour of George C Waldo State Park in 25 degree weather. I started out riding in full snivel gear regalia including my Lake303 boots, lobster gloves and a balaclava. Halfway into the ride, I ditched the lobsters at the car because my hands were sweating. I got a double shot on the new trail where I rode it both directions. Going down the trail is great, but riding up has some tough sections, especially the one pictured below that I am calling Satan's Stairway!
The wind off the lake made it a lot colder
I found the new skinny on the main Waldo trail
It's insane but too high for my tastes
