    only 77 miles today - Red Rock Canyon

    ...but I got in a hike, also.

    77 miles today.
    74 miles on .95 gallon = 78 MPG
    Beautiful day and about 50F most of Red Rock Canyon Loop.
    Melting snow around the higher elevations of the loop (just over 4,000 feet).

    Took a short hike. Snow was packed on the trail and ice was a bit slippery.
    Adventure jacket was a bit warm for hiking, too heavy (8#) to carry and too expensive to leave with the bike.

    The stock seat is a killer. I stopped at Cycle Gear and bought a gel pad.
    Hopefully it helps for the planned ride along Lead Mead, on Thursday: 160 mile round trip.
    Now have 572 miles on the clock since January 28.
    The last pic, of the hike, would not post.

    Thanks for the pics. Nice to see someone out riding. I was watching snow fall all day long. Added another 6-8 inches today.
    Beautiful where you rode this time of year.

    Nice Red Rock Canyon photos and ride.
    There seems to be a five photo limit per post when uploading from most platforms.
    However my Android phone running Tapatalk has let me post more than five in the past.

    Have you thought about getting a seat concepts pad and cover from Placerlode? Makes a huge difference. Good guy, his name is Fred.

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Thanks, but if the gel pad does not work (going to Lake Mead today), I will send the pan to Seat Concepts.
