Snowy, icy boulders made for an extremely challenging and bumpy ride home tonight. I went to JCCC, then came along College Boulevard to Strang Line to get to Bike America. The drivers can barely keep from hitting other cars, so I took it off the road and onto the boulder-covered sidewalk all the way there. No wipe-outs. I can't believe how sure-footed these cheapo knobbies are. They're the factory original tires that came on my Diamondback Outlook, and they're made by Ching Shen, a popular manufacturer of budget tires. Keep in mind I was wearing about 30 pounds of gear on my back, in the form of clothes, a laptop, and other stuff I needed for work.

I'm actually pretty sore right now, but it was fun while it lasted. I did try to say "Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!" when I was barreling through a slight downhill, but it came out kind of choppy due to the boulders!
