Lockdown dreaming PT 1.

Howdy folks.  Hope you are surviving in these continued testing times.  Good news is that spring and summer are on the way and I am sitting here dreaming of getting out even more on two wheels.   It looks like racing this year in what ever form will continue to be sporadic but maybe that's not so bad.  It means more time for just exploring, bike packing and even old fashion cycle-touring and this could be done solo or in pairs thus making it a pretty good socially distanced option. 

I have been looking at potential trips, super cool new trails opening up and too many YouTube videos of amazing bicycle adventures. So here is a list of  bits and pieces  I have been checking out.    No solid plans yet  but already looking at light weight tents , sleeping mats and frame bags.....

See you cycling into the sunset somewhere . Russ Jones
