    amen

    I got to telegraph and thought I was out of water in my pack but it was all ice so I was still good. wanted to ride Alta since i'd only seen it on C2C death marches. it was nice - short but nice. then it was back up the road to BV and back to Pima Cyn.
    And where to go after such a great service? eat of course! at a little place I learned from durtgirl -mmm chorizo and eggs

    I am pretty sure that God created some mountains specifically for mountain biking or at least for our enjoyment. The day of rest was a gift to keep us from working all the time, and to allow us time to remember the one who created everything.

    Nice pictures.

    You sure you rode Alta? From those last pictures and your description of the route, it looks and sounds more like Ranger.

    Heck, it was hot in Flagstaff on Sunday. Hot enough that I had my first real-live bonk in five years.

    I discovered those bad boys (saladitos) last year when riding over the top of Mt. Lemmon. When I was at the little grocery store in Oracle, I saw the saladitos bought some and they were awesome. Now, I keep a bag around for during and after rides.

    I actually ate a ton of them when I was a kid (growing up in the barrio a block from Jerry's Lee Ho Market you eat all kinds of strange stuff) but it never occured to me to use them for anti-bonking. Hmm I wonder if tamarindos would help.....

    We started riding around 10:30 or so. Felt really good all the way to the top of Sunset, felt pretty good at the top of Jedi, then started feeling really demoralized and unambitious about attempting the numerous log rollers. Took a 15 minute nap at the top of Weatherford, and then fell apart coming down Lookout/Ricochet/Hotshot/whatever you want to call it. Couldn't keep the bike going at speed...heck, I babied it down Schultz for heaven's sake.

    They say even a bad ride is pretty good (like pizza, sex, etc.), but yesterday had me wondering.

    Nice

    That's my kind of Sunday service. Thanks for the pics.

    Seems like I've seen that blue bag somewhere before, though...
