    5 hour solo adventure ride on the Solstice. It was a brilliant day. On the last climb I was out of water, food, and bonked so hard I felt like I was tripping. On my back on the summit of our little Mtn., looking at the blue sky through pine and birch boughs trying to recover for some furious descending, I was so high, after so much Paine, the euphoria was overwhelming. A good session by myself in the woods wheels going around. Legs going around, chain going around, brain going around and around. All problems solved for now. Limitations recognized. Humility restored. Surely this made me a better person at least for a short while.

    Sometimes I need to disappear to find myself again. When that final wall of Paine is pushed through and life is reduced to just one more pedal stroke and every bird, berry, leaf and tree seems like a miracle of life I know I'm reconnected to my primal state and just where I need to be.

    Damn it's hot. Short laps, sweaty rocks, tacky dirts. Hid in the shade to recover before dropping in. The view wasn't worth the exposure and the humidity had visibility down so our view was less than spectacular. Orange was frighteningly fast. I'm gonna hurt myself on that trail one day.

    Funny how I will avoid pavement at all costs but love riding on granite, or any rock for that matter. More women than men on this ride, and all of them rip it pretty well.

    Hot humid summer to be sure. Local tread conditions have been fab despite all the rain.

    Hey Rob, is the red tail area being turned into FOMBA spaghetti town or what? Maybe a little overboard? Loved how sparce it was with RT/KR and connector. Felt somewhat remote with no clutter. Now there's connectors connecting multiple plus routes?

    Crazy good ride from the house this afternoon. So raw, so techy, so deserted. Haven't seen another rider in two months.
