    Good and Bad of Summer Ending

    Good:
    3 hour rides on 1 small water bottle
    Cooler weather
    Less people out on the trails
    Riding into the sunset
    Leaves are starting to change
    Being able to ride with the dogs again in the morning
    No more 6am rides
    Night riding

    Bad:
    Less daylight means an earlier end to a weekday ride
    Goatheads are dried up and sharp
    You have to pack a light jacket
    Riding into the sunset
    More leaves down = more yardwork
    Night riding

    It is all good all the time.

    My apologies for crop dusting my riding partners last night. Tzatziki does a number to me. Actually, anything does it for me. Especially that thing with the monkey....that really makes me laugh.

    Hi Gary

    That's an awesome picture of the SJ riding along the Sunset - perfect pic!
    I hope you guys had a great ride last night and I'm sure we'll be riding soon.

    One things I am looknig forward to is weekend rides with my buddies, like riding out in the Owyhees - I really like those - even if we do have to wear layers.......

    As summer ends...

    My goals are to ride outside more this winter. I spent too much time riding in my living room on my trainer while watching DVDs from Blockbuster. This year I want to be outside riding - somehow.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Dude,
    It was a gorgeous evening capped off with a Lucky Ada session (you missed out on SJ's homemade corn salsa and spinach dip with all you can eat lime chips and Ricochet and PBR buffet)... hehehehe...
    Speaking of layers, I wonder if Cabela will have some cheap first layers on sale when they open....

    we pretty try to ride or run almost everyday last winter (albeit only for 1 hour before the thaw). stock up on the chemical toe and hand warmers and you'll be ok... a bonus is that you can just about go as fast as you can in the lower foothills knowing you'll be the only id!ot out there AND you'll have forever traction.

    Summer sucks. Not enough snow. Fall sucks. Too brown. Winter sucks. Not enough snow. Spring sucks. Too green. Everything sucks. Get an XBox and waste aliens. Lather, rinse, repeat.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    I vote that you check ID's, because you're bigger than me.

    Change?

    You're supposed to give people change? That certainly explains some of my difficulties last year. I thought all that cash was being donated.

    hope we have a stretch like last winter in december.

    inversion with temps ranging from 13 low to 24 high. that was some fun riding.

    it was also when my parents visited from SC...thus reaffirming their belief that i live in an icebox.

    bad:
    I Don't like the cold.
    I can barely stay upright when the road is dry, let alone wet.

    Good:
    No more sunscreen in the eyes (and you thought crashing was painful)
