    I wish, but this is a very busy weekend for me and I have little time to play. Therefore, I got my fix through others who were able to ride today, like you. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the thought. In the past year or two, I've done the screening down the front side and up the backside but I haven't had blood work done in at least three years. That's what I need to take care of as well as this crazy pain in my left wrist/hand.

    I rode my bike today with a few other hoodlums somewhere near Mt. High. Details in another thread.

    Some say 20 miles and 4200'. Beautiful day. Bikes are fun!

    Yikes! This sounds ominous. I hope all is well. Actually, that's a strange thing to say. If all were well, you wouldn't be inside the health care spin cycle.

    Thoughts and prayers for a positive outcome.

    With my bike out of commission while I wait for parts, I thought I’d head up to the YT demo, and take along the 12 year old stumpjumper for old times’ sake. But I was unprepared for the price of admission; no way am I going to drop $55 for a pedal-only pass, plus judging by the enduro-chic fashion show in the parking lot I expect I was under-biked.

    So I headed towards Skyline, but decided to stop at Rim Nordic instead. I didn’t choke quite as hard on a $10 trail pass, but I can see why they aren’t as busy as SkyPark—The trails are as anachronistic as my Stumpy. They were fine, but my 640 mm bars, long stem, short wheelbase, 70* head angle, etc, felt way too at home. Still, the folks were nice and the trails seemed well cared for.

    Usual Sunday morning ride with Rusty except for a couple things.First it was hella windy and second was the stubborn rattlesnake.Came around a bend and he was stretched across the road just soaking up the sun. Tried to see how Rusty was going to react but he seemed clueless that the snake was even there. Hmm now how to get it to move. Roll some small rocks by it and over it,nope. Try the @herzalot jump up & down and even bounce the bike up & down, nope but Rusty thought it was funny. Finally my tried & true find a stick and help him along from behind method, tricky to perform when holding a bike and dog in your other hand. Yep this one worked, except it spooked the heck out of Rusty and he about yanked himself out of his harness and drug me and the bike over. Got him calmed down and re attached and we continued on.

    Hey @Voodoo Tom, maybe you've already done it, but if not I'd recommend rattlesnake prevention training and vaccination for @Rusty. :) I got it for Rufus and he usually stayed about 10 feet from any nearby rattlers, once he caught their scent. Occasional deviation if he was lured closer by a thrown tennis ball or pile of steaming cow :poop:.

    I asked but didn't receive a rattlesnake vaccination for myself.. would've paid double but the vet wouldn't budge. :stop:

    Met a buddy for an early morning spin at the Weed Patch in San Clemente. I haven’t ridden there in a couple of years. The trails are in good shape. Lot’s of fun twisty single track and enough elevation to get a decent workout. Had the place to ourselves with the 6:30 am start, but a lot of riders on the trail at the end. 11.4 miles, 1,961 feet.

    Yes he’s taken the avoidance class and a refresher last year and had the vaccination every year. Wind was blowing hard to our backs so I don’t think he picked up the scent. He usually knows the are there before I do.

    Went out this morning for a solo, easy pace, no hurry ride. I accomplished that. :thumbsup:

    Up B* to the golf ball, over to Sierra Peak, back down B*. Great morning on the mountain. Hit a couple of the singletracks on the way down and got PRs on them, which surprised me. Tons of people out enjoying the weather today.

    23/3,600.
