We brought the fat bikes and a second set of 29er wheels so we can vary our riding. I recently purchased a set of Surly Rabbit Hole wheels for my Pugs. I went with a low tread 29x2.25 tire, so they roll pretty good on the pavement.
I headed north on the trail, which was going into a pretty stiff headwind.
Still, I'm on vacation, so even though it was slow going, life was good. See?
The end of the trail is a little over 13 miles from the hotel. Once I made the turn my speed increased significantly. It seems rare, but sometimes you do get a tailwind.
There are opportunities to jump on some trails here and there. They are typically sandy and slow, though.
Almost back to the hotel.
A nice, scenic 26-miler to start the trip.
