    19.5 miles with 1400+ feet of climbing. Great, cool, dry weather. Spanked the ride today!

    Met one grumpy old codger while grinding up a long hill. Being from New England, I'll just call him a cranky Yankee.

    Quick ride yesterday on the local in town conservation trails. Its been hot, dry and smokey so no one around except for a little bear cub I suprised coming around the corner. He took one look at me, did a 180 and took off down the trail and into the bush. I gave the mama bear time to move further into the bush before carrying on. She just calmly sat there and watched us move on with her cub sitting beside her, they looked pretty cute.

    Hit the bike park thursday evening and it was nice to get above the smoke line. Nice and clear up the mountain with a cool breeze on the chairlift. We really need some rain!

    Another hot day so a shorter ride on some local single track before dropping down to the river so the arctic mutts (Alaskan Malamutes) could cool off and go for a swim.

    Damn, should have taken a picture of my bike when I rode today, looks like we had an orange bike trifecta in play.

    Stopped and did a couple of sessions jumping off the end of a bridge, trying to get more comfortable in the air. I've jumped off it without even thinking about it on my 26er but was lacking confidence in doing it on my 29er. Did it three times and wondered why I had been apprehensive about it. Cooling down on the beginner loop, crested a hill and found a small fawn in the trail, ten feet in front of me. It ran off and I spotted mom near by.

    This was my Saturday. Biked about 15mi RT to the Tour de Fat (1st visit to anywhere I've lived), and won the "slow ride" race. My picture appeared in today's slideshow recap for the event. Pic #27.

    Got 7.3 miles in tonight with the Monday night beginners group. I find it fascinating that I have more fun than the last time out every time. I think I am addicted! On a side note, I am down 30 pounds as of this morning's weigh in!

    We have this nice little trail in Santa Fe that climbs just over 2000 feet up to Atalaya Peak. After climbing the technical trail up the front side there is a totally amazing descent off the back side and around to Picacho Peak and out to Upper Canyon Road. It is a beautiful 12 mile single track ride. And that drop off the back side is FANTASTIC!!!

    10 miles out and back on a gravel trail. Aired out my lungs--check. Revved up the heart--check. Set fire to my quads--check. I remember how to do this, and it feels good.

    Sure. The downhill I mentioned does not have a bike a lane, so I usually take the lane, as you approach the end, the street opens up into a 2 lane road, stll no bike lane! So I keep the lane as cars can pass me on the now 2nd lane. Well Mss. Blondee (early 20s maybe?) Blows her horn at me, cuts traffic, then cuts me, obviously she is late. Cauhgt up to her at the next light, I knock on her window and I said "wtf was that?" She goes "use the bike lane, you are slowing traffic down" i said, there is no bike lane, and I can take the lane if I wish. Anyways, she has probably been drving for a couple of years, and was just in a rush, but I was peeved. People are so damn impatient, its kind of sad.

    Drivers don't understand how dangerous it is to hug the curb, but in other roads, and when possible, I do use the shoulder, I try to always be respectful, thank drivers when they let me by, and I follow the rules.

    So I did use a couple of bad words, bcz she pissed me of. Lol

    Did a short blast today and set a bunch of PRs... felt good 'cuz I knew I could, I just needed to go in fresh and push.

    Last week was great, rode like 30 miles of trail and 3400' of climbing. For some that's like one ride, but that's a good week around here for this guy.

    This week won't be as much vert due to some flat road rides and it's looking like rain is on the way...

    Thought this week was a loss due to heavy rains, but managed to get one in at a place that sheds water quickly and was mostly missed by yesterday's storms.

    Actually I stepped back a few feet in the other direction, and they "disappeared" because of the curvature, but still

    You don't sound too out of place in that instance. You could have rapped on the blonds window and just asked;
    "Was that your horn blowing or the squeal of a bad muffler bearing? "

    Then she'd have had that to worry about all day.

    Two days, two rides.
    Been off track lately so needing to get to it

    * Today's ride was the test of a few hills and timing my way to work still tugging the kid caboose with some work related stuff in it. I didn't crack the pedals and it was a leisurely 32 minutes or so. Coming home is about 17 minutes. Got a little rained on. Today - 9.53 mi.

    * Yesterday, 6.8 miles.
    Emmett (2 yr old grandson) was looking cozy in his carriage. Only had the kiddo for a short time so we had to get out for a short 2 miler.
    Earlier in the day, I'd ventured out with a buddy to see if some of the greenway build was complete. Sure 'nuff, I can now ride my bike as 'work commute' with the safety-net of path/greenway almost all the way.

    Shortest but one of my best rides. I finally mustered up the courage to attempt a bunny hop and succeeded about 4". Not as high as when I was a teen on my Haro team master but it's coming back to me. I was impressed and I rarely swear but a good ole fashion f yeah came out. I had a huge smile. I was proud of myself.

    Went for a ride yesterday. First ride since the day before my bike got stolen, so that was awesome! Plus the bike I bought for $325 completely blew me away! I'd been riding an entry level specialized hardrock 29er with low level components and worn out Suntour coil fork.
    My "new" bike is a Stumpjumper expert 26er, so besides the suspension and shifting being a night & day difference, the handling was waaaaay more nimble and easy in the tight rocky sections.
    It did bite me once at the very end though because there was a little bypass path with loose gravel going around a gate, I leaned into it like I would have with my 29er and slid out a little sending me shoulder first into a metal fence post. That was sadly only the second most embarrassing thing I did though.
    At the beginning when we just got there, I had just finished working on my wife's bike and went to run it through the gears. I did one little bunny hop, but like an idiot I was wearing flip-flops, my foot slipped, and i dug the end of my big toe into the parking lot pavement. It broke my toenail in half and ripped some skin of the front of my toe. Looked pretty gross because the nail was still attached to the skin hanging off and it was bleeding everywhere. Not exactly the ideal start to the ride, but it wasn't that bad once I got my riding shoes on and was clipped in.

    I did, and I was tired of doing the same loop at my local trail, so decided to explore! Ended up with 12miles, and 1600' of climbing.

    Found a great challenging (for me) ST, it was nice to change scenery.

    Yes! Got another Saturday ride in on my local trail. Still damp, but things dried up much quicker than I've ever seen, overall. Took more direct, but much rougher, lines than usual to square up on the slippery roots and rocks, got better traction where they weren't, plus stayed in a higher gear to keep momentum(to lose momentum is to lose traction, to lose traction is to lose momentum, and all that good stuff). My lower back is knowing it, but under conditions that I normally avoid this trail, I PR'd the first lap, then beat that by 48 seconds on the next one!

    I'm visiting Portland, Oregon so I rented a road bike for a few days. Wow, so awesome to be able to ride pretty much anywhere in the city and feel safe doing so. Got in a little over 25 miles, rode up Rocky Butte and Mt Tabor. Riding with one of my cousins tomorrow.

    20+ miles yesterday with 1500 feet of climbing. 19.5 miles today with a little less climbing. Spanked both days hard.

    Met up with a bunch of riders this morning and showed them some new trails. Everyone was happy.

    If there is a new trail to-be-built in my town, surely it should be this one! From the top of Black Canyon across the ridge lines to Apache Creek. From my house it is a 17.8 miles with 3010 vertical feet. At this point, this qualifies as an adventure ride. With a little bit of work it could be a world-class bit of single track!

    I did a long run this morning and Chris did some trail work. After my run I joined him on the trail for a loop. No pics from the ride... BTW skeeters are still unbelievably ravenous.

    I finally got out again the past couple of mornings, after over a month with almost no riding at all. My brand new tire has become lighter weight and has less rolling resistance than when I installed it 120 days ago.

    Tried a new trail today. Got 10 miles in. Trail is located in a city park along the river. Not very long at 3 miles. Did 3 laps. Not very technical but very twisty and narrow. Really fun little trail. Cudos to the builders, they did a great job laying out some fun trail in a small space.

    Riding at a totally new location this week. Sugar bottom Iowa.

    Were camping at the lake here, only riding so far was tooling around exploring a little after making dinner. First time fat bike has done any real "beach riding". Small beach for swimming and such. Thought about going into the water since the marked swimming area is rather shallow. But decided soaked riding shoes was a bad idea.

    So this is what im doing right now.

    Hit up some trails an hour down the road yesterday. Around 11km and 1200' of climb, so a bit short but super fun. Today was bike park day, burned off a bunch more runs, addictive that bike park stuff!

    Made it to Snow Summit bike park, and survived 3 runs only because one guy was fighting a cold. Rode the beginner trail first, then to an intermidiate trail. I did ok, but it was tougher, and lost a bit of confidence, but no spills. Third run was blue as well (Skyline) and that was a blast.

    Had some beers, helped out a fellow rider with a flat, and saw a guy have a really bad fall, but he was ok. Great Saturday! Sorry if too many pics.

    20.6 miles with 1550 feet of climbing. Too sick to ride yesterday, but well enough to bang one out today.

    No picture although I rode a short bit Sunday.

    My wife wanted to surprise the grandkids with t/o from Subway (they have a few favorite items there) so I decided to meet her at the kids house. Not a far distance but a few good hills and minimal traffic dangers.
    That 38 mph hill going is a booger coming back up but just as I was thinking an 86 degree sunny afternoon and this ride was a bit much, I leveled out and was feeling accomplished in a less than fatigued way.
    - No doubt, the 27.5 x 3 tires with squishy nobbies eat up some burn and could have had a bit more psi in them.

    Got to remember that feeling just after the questions come.
    In the Middle Ages, the biggest mistake was not putting on your armor because you were 'just going down to the corner.'

    It was a social ride day, as many Sundays are. Not super fast, but we always do something kind of grueling.

    This was the "secret social" ride: 15 miles with 2784 feet of elevation gain in 2:18 min. It is possible to drop the hammer on this one and carve out almost 30 minutes of overall time--no stopping, full gas the whole way, and with the taste of blood in your mouth almost the whole way. But that isn't sociable!

    This photo is from the north side of Atalaya looking off to the Northwest. Picacho Peak is below and off to the left. The traverse across Picacho to Atalaya is one of the most awesome sections of single track. Techy with some big moves, a big drop off to the side, but nothing so huge that if you mess up it could really hurt you (except in a couple of spots!).

    Done with this stupid MapMyRide app, though it's probably my phone's fault.
    It always screws me on mileage by a good 10%, sometimes 20, but it set a new record today.

    Man, that place always leaves me feeling beat up, though.
    I just switched my bike back to singlespeed, but had mainly put gears back on it for Coldwater. As it turns out, sitting down on a hardtail there is not to my taste!
    I'm gonna descend Chilowhee instead of Bomb Dog next time. Been climbing it back up from Bomb Dog so I could come back down Goldilocks, lately, but it looks like it'd be really fun to go down

    I have had the same problem with Trailforks. When I set it on record my ride the mileage is always off. My guess is that even though the GPS can see the elevation change it can't see the increased distance the elevation changes add. It is very frustrating. I know my bike computer is accurate, well within < .1 miles on a 20 mile ride. The app is always off, but not as much as yours is. It is typically about 1/4-1/2 mile off over a 10-12 mile ride.
    Change begins by doing something different.
