Map planning

Steve has been doing one of his favorite things - looking over maps and dreaming about our summer bike trip. Most of the map work is spent figuring out good bike routes through cities that are off Adventure Cycling routes. Thankfully most cities have a good network of recommended routes courtesy of local bike clubs and bike coalition efforts. The snow was blowing outside in this picture - our first real snow storm of the season. Steve and Riley (golden retriever) went snow shoeing later. It was great!

At the Gym

Today we went to our local gym again. It's been a life saver this winter. So far we have had very little snow and cold. Not a good combination for much snowshoeing or cross country skiing. The gym has allowed us to get some good and consistent exercise that will hopefully pay off on our ride next summer. Our time at the gym has been a good mix between treadmills, cycle & rowing machines, and weight machines. We've been going to the gym 4 or 5 times a week.
