Praise dirt!

Today was the first day of good trail riding in Kamloops and EVERYONE was out. We all had giddy grins on our faces, like kids that have just spilled their pillow case of Halloween candy onto the floor to have upcoming splendours revealed to them. We soaked up the sun in equal parts with the mud and it was great.

Yeah sunny rides!

Having pretty much exhausted our repertoire of early season road ride loops in the Kamloops area, Keith and I decided to head to Sorrento for our Saturday ride. We explored the back roads between Sorrento and Tappen and found our way onto Sunnybrae road. It was an amazing ride which took us along a quiet, rolling winding road skirting Shuswap Lake. Looking across the lake we could see first Salmon arm and then Sicamous. The return ride reminded us it is still winter with a short hail storm, but anytime I can stay warm for 4.5 hrs March 1st is fine by me.
