    *Yawn* Another Auburn ride.

    Well, at least Johnny Freeride had a good time.

    Early into the ride, Steve (Big Boulder) crashed with me hot on his skewers, and when he fell, I had no alternative but to lay my bike down on top of his, bending his derailleur hanger. Poor bastard. He stopped several times to tweak it, and finally it worked well enough to use. My fork was losing air from the get-go, so by the end of the ride, it was topping out with a horrible metallic clunk that scared me. I bypassed my favorite part of the ride to ride the road down. Damn Marzocchi. Damn me, for not bringing a fricking shock pump. It's George Bush's fault, I tells ya.

    It was real nice up at Auburn- overcast, with a bit of humidity in the air, but I'll take that over what it could have been. 22+ miles. Many cyclocrossers on some portions of the trails- that was different. They were all stuck up.

    Here's a couple o' boring pics. Didn't have the camera out much.

    1) JFR
    2) Big Boulder
    3) Scenic w/ JFR. That's the Atlantic Ocean down below.
    4) My leg after an encounter w/ prickly bushes. Hope none of that's pizen oakley scratches.

    Wish I was there I like the one of Steve. Very action-like.
