I just got back from roding in Ruidoso, New Mexico. It was definitely an experience. I am in the Army so I have had a chance to ride in places such as Germany, Egypt, Korea, Hawaii and most recently Iraq. I am now stationed in El Paso, Tx and went to Ruidoso this weekend to go camping with my wife and kids. I bought a bike here on the classifieds a couple weeks ago. It was a Santa Cruz Chameleon set up as a single speed. I thought to myself I am in shape, I can ride this no problem. I had been riding it all week finding myself with the bike. I rode it for the fiirst time on a trail this weekend and it kicked my a$$. I have never felt so defeated. By the first half mile I was done. I can use excuses like the altitude all day but it was deinitely the one gear, I am not done though, I will live to fight another day. I already have plans to go back to Ruidoso by the end of summer and conquer my enemy. I will overcome!!!!!!!!!!!!
