The joy of riding dirt trails

I had a faint idea of the route I wanted to take, but because it’s (sort of) winter, we were short on time if we didn’t want to have to break out our lights. Pretty much, take the Highline Canal to Chatfield all the way to the dam in Waterton Canyon and then back. When I finally got home from the hour-long drive from volunteering at the Longmont CX race, I had to quickly eat and prep my bike.
