    It's not too bad as long as you're pedaling. To be honest though, I have some extra motivation. You see my wife does an early morning water aerobics class in an outdoor community pool. Yes the pool is heated but I still can't imagine how darned cold that must be. I figure if she is tough enough to do her water aerobics then I'm damn sure tough enough to ride in the cold and not complain...

    Good ol' Cherry Canyon OTB ride last night. Luckily, Hans "El Presidente" posted up that he wanted to get an early start for extra credit so we rode at 5 and met up w the gang at 6. Ended being a pretty good ride, 14.5 miles and 2900 gain. Was chilly but that didn't affect much as long as we were pedaling. :cool:

    Cathy and I did out Typical Tapia Twenty. We don't like doing the same thing over and over again, but at our house the San Joaquin Fog was so thick and dense that condensation was turning into a slight drizzle. No fun to ride in. So loaded up and went to Tapia for a late afternoon ride. It was 65 degrees with Hurracanous high winds! Yes! I used my made up word Hurracanous! Cathy was cooked before we started. She figured that out once she put leg to pedal. But knowing Cathy... She drove through it. What an awesome trooper! We got Twenty and then hit up El Pollo Loco!

    Another Dead Cow run with my buddy Dennis and a few of his friends. Turned out to be a great group of riders. Thankful to have found some local riding buds.Screenshot_2015-12-05-14-43-30-1.png

    Rode my bike today, it was fun. :)
    Intense was having a demo day, and a cute lady was leading it. I think she may have been a sponsored pro.
    My riding buddy was getting inpatient because I was taking my time chatting with her on the trail. :rolleyes::cool:

    All I had to say to him was "priorities my friend, priorities!".


    edit; she is pro, checked my fly-bys! And fast too...

    I bought a fork, and got a personal tour! We rode two very different areas... Some smooth and flowy, some chunky that kept me on my toes! 26ish miles... Lots of fun. :thumbsup:

    IMG_5863.jpg

    Part of the X-Trail... 6ish miles of new cut trail with a nice amount of chunk, some short climbs, and lots of foliage cover. :thumbsup:

    CarlS showing the way... His two partners hit it as more of a rollover than a jump. :whistling:

    Luis has a pic posted of me with group on the la Tuna thurs group ride with OTB. Last guy on the righ iirc. Check Luis's strava. It's nothing as special as Tatiana photo (which strava has deviously and surreptitiously removed so I replaced with me and croc baby from cabo).

    3 ups, 3 downs in my backyard w/ Danimal. Tons o' fun!!!

    I didn't hate the climbs (don't get too excited, you climbing freaks...I didn't like them either), and I felt pretty "on it" on the downs - good runs. Bike was perfect. Weather was perfect. Fashions were functional. Riding buddy was stoked, as always.

    That is all. Have a nice day! :thumbsup: (waving smiley)
