    I get an entire day to ride this Saturday. It’s one of only a few days per year I am alotted due to family and work, neither of which I would trade for the freedom to plan and execute all-day EPICS at will. I find myself sacrificing deadlines and time with family just to train for this weekend, training without which Saturday would be far less enjoyable.

    For those of you who do back to back to back 50-milers mottled with 25-mile mid-week rides, my hat’s off to you for making it happen. A few days from now will be just another Saturday.

    My precious Saturdays usually get taken over in the fall... with two kids, the fall is double duty.. the wifey just can't take both to different places.. at the same time... so no fun Saturdays.. still trying to ride short quick rides during the week or whenever I can.... but the floop gets old quick!

    It was fun. I hit it hard. Safety, beer, mileage. Feels gooood. Saw Zilla’s A-Team, @Grego and The Trail Slayer, and @Kanga. Probably a few more and I forget. Sorry. I botched my Strava after 7 miles, so I’m piggy-backing on @burt ’s ride. Thanks dude for chillin’ with us. It was a good day. Only two photos.

    I didn't get to see it because I was a ways behind, but Dante testifies that @burt was endo-ing switchbacks in the area of The Hunting Grounds while whistling dixie. :whistling:

    Also, a funny story about what the Epics do to the brain of a rider who's typical ride is 12 miles. I received the following text from Nate yesterday: "Boys. When I got home last night I was physically and mentally buckled. Last thought in my head turning into my street was don't enter the garage with the bike on the roof rack. Proceeded to enter the garage with the bike on the roof rack. Horrific sound. Popped the rack mount off the car, scraped off a good amount of stucco from the building. Bike is fine save for a few minor scratches on the stanchions."

    Just another Saturday, I say!

    I have witnessed @burt doing that little endo manuever on the Millennium loop, with the switchbacks of death. NFWBTW!

    I did not hear him whistling, though... :thumbsdown:
