I've been excited to ride lately, not sure why... I'm amazed at how difficult, well time consuming, it is to ride a mountain bike on the road. I met up with the Holley's today but decided to ride from the house to "make up" for the day before. It took me over an hour to get to the meeting place. Granted I took the long way, but I've done it a hundred times before on the road bike and it's never taken that long. Then again, if I were on the road bike I would have frozen! It was cold, cold, cold until I hit the dirt near the mouth of Hobble Creek. We rode to the Y parking lot, the trail gets a little nasty toward Rock Canyon, then back to the Buckets. I was totally going to ride home, at least that was the plan, but KC set her usual pace, with no stops for idle chat. Thank God they gave me a ride or you wouldn't be reading this!

I love the sun, too bad we have to spend a few hours in the car to enjoy it.

Is this going to work?

The first race of the So Cal Endurance series is later this month. It's questionable whether or not I'm going to make it but I thought I would start getting things ready just in case. I drug out my backup wheels from under the house, where they've been since last spring. I shook them, there was something inside. I decided to open one up and check for monsters... No Stan's Monsters, but they had been there and ate well.
