    Yeah, that is boring......round and round and round the same course. One big loop makes for a much nicer ride.

    Soon. I have been trying to piece one together without too much pavement.

    Next time, try a 4-man relay in it to win it. Talk some sh!t to the rider in front of you on course, and hot box the tent with your team while you wait for your next lap. Good times!

    Utility ride 'round town. Hit up the library, the in-progress skate park, the University, and my mom's where I went and dug up a trash bin full of aloe vera plants for her. Beautiful evening out, great to be on a bike!

    2018 Share the Road Ride. I believe it's my fastest century to date. Almost broke the 6 hour mark. Next time.

    We did 10 miles out at that place in Murietta. Tons of cars and a bunch of people at the top of climbs but never ran into a soul while riding a trail. We had planned several more laps but had a guy go down on Jumping Mouse and had to bail to get him some stitches on his forearm.

    Late start for a really fun ride. The boy wanted to do a road ride, so I acquiesced but had to include a little bit of dirt to keep it interesting. Did a bit of exploring, taking back roads and semi-closed (I didn't see any signs) roads. He's just about outgrown his 55cm Poprad CX, so I guess I need to start looking for a 57 or 58 frame.

    Fun times on a bike!

    Beautiful, well thought out, incredibly comfortable. What's not to love!
    Actually toying with selling this one, as I don't ride it much anymore.

    I just moved to Fountain Valley two weeks ago. I've ridden the SART many times after work, but now having it 1/4 mile from my garage means lots of sunset rides ahead.

    ...and shouldn't have :(
    First day back at work, and figured if I could do that, I should be able to ride a bike, amiright!
    Bad decision making there. Headache from riding, or maybe from work. Who knows.
    Yeah, definitely shouldn't have.

    Seemed like a long recovery of two weeks off the bike! I picked up a virus last week, and it's been a bit rough with coughing a lot. That's why I felt so aful when I posted the above! But today was my first real good day, so I hopped on the townie and did a quick ride about the neighborhood. It Felt Great! So going to ramp it up over the next week and try to get back the fitness that I had before Hell Ride.
