|My Ski Commuting Set Up|
I scored the new backpack from REI on my last trip to Boston and love how my skis and equipment get carried on my back and I don't have to drive. I must look quite odd riding a bike to ski but I enjoy it so as long as the roads permit it - I will continue this adventure!
When I got to Sprague Brook I hit up the winter shelter to get my equipment all set up and then I hit the trails. My skis need a waxing badly so it was not at all smooth but the weather was great and I got some ski time in so I was quite happy!
I even left my bike inside so it would clean up a little from all of the slush and road grit. I definitely need to score a fender set up for this because my bike and backpack got destroyed from road slime! The single speed cleans up super nice though so I don't worry about it too much.
My heat source after I finished skiing and cleaning up before the ride back home. I had this baby roaring by the time I came back in from all of the wood I added to her. Felt great to sit in front of the fire and eat my lunch and relax for a couple of minutes.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Get out there and enjoy nature!!! You won't be disappointed!
