    Good job! The alarm buzzed at 2:30am this Sunday...

    .... I wanted to try to beat the heat for a ride and almost made it. The temperature was 85f at 3:50am as I pulled into the trailhead, I was happy with that because there was no blazing ball of fire staring down on me from the sky. It was 103f when I finished.

    It was only me and the donkeys at 4am.....

    It's a thin "lycra-type" material that I use mainly to keep the sun off my skin and feels nice and cool with a splash of water

    Ha ha. I wonder that sometimes too. I ride and ride and ride almost every day. Will I wake up one day and just walk away like Forest Gump? In fact, that scene from the movie flashed before my eyes every once in awhile. I guess if I do... I'll know I rode enough.

    Nice work Matt. Great passion post. I got up a 5:15AM ( again ) to beat the "heat" (It's been in the 90s here ) this morning and had a Gumpish moment as I sat in my garage trying to decide which trail I wanted to ride. It's only half way through the summer riding season and I'm already getting bored with the usual fare (Time to start building new trail or heading to more distant parts). Once I made my choice and got out there I had a killer ride so no walking away for me yet.

    I cheated today.
    I went to Bootleg via pavement, and after sunset.

    I think that donkey might be the ghost of a glue factory victim...

    Yep, 60 miles in that heat was a bear. I was expecting to cramp but never did. I figured I drank 280oz of fluids in 6hrs. I'll be putting together the Blue Diamond Century Tour when the weather cools off a bit...ok, when it cools off a lot!
