    Good job! Whafe & the ML go to the Birth Place of Titus

    Have been working in Ventura, Ca last week, so this trip I brought the ML with me.

    I did a road trip out to Az to take up an offer to ride with a fellow MTBR member dHarriet.

    Must say the desert is a little different to terrain I have ridden, was a blast, where the trails were good, they were real good, where they were boring, they were like watching paint dry.

    It was very hot, but no humidity, so was not to bad for me, Bacelona is worse with the heat and humidity.

    Was cool to ride with a MTBR member, especially one that I have taken the piss out of for so long............. So thank you dH for showing me the trails in Tucson

    Some riding shots

    This big cactus is over 150 years old, man it was a big bastid.............(in the second group of pictures)

    Corka mate, was fair dinkim hot too, real outback temps, no humidity though.

    Yes got to ride with the Flux named GiGi, but I need to get some IP on the ML's colour scheme....

    And yes those there cacti are facken prickly, straight through the cycling shoes etc. But have to say, dH near lost at one stage and plowed through a patch, didnt bail, but real close to a bail...........

    Yes, too much travel lately .......... Spain to Turkey to South Africa to Kenya to Spain to NZ to Belgium to Spain to the US of A.......All in 21 days........... Got more days annual leave here for some more mtb....

    Heard from the dude in Peru, he said I need to be fit for this trip. Has done the tour now and said had soem people that were not fit and it really caused issues, so am glad to be getting some riding in...

    turns out one of the little ones jumped infront of me ...errr...actually it's possible that i may have veered a little ...i guess i zinged when i should have zagged...

    was a good ride though...nice to not ride solo for a change!

    Was cool to ride with a MTBR member, especially one that I have taken the piss out of for so long.............
    what was cool was that i couldn't hear you talking sh!t on the trails over those super loud fancy pants I9 wheels of yours ...sheesh those things are LOUD!

    So thank you dH for showing me the trails in Tucson

    Hi ya Crisillo.... Was a hoot...........the hoot was the vocab that dH has in place of emoticons

    No issues at all with the soft bag, once I packed stuff, I then slid a flattened cardboard box on each side of the bag, it was mint. The side and end compression straps really bind everything together well...

    Finishing my meeitngs here in the office, heading back out to ride in the Flagstaff area of Az, yeah ha...

    Will get more pics
