    Finally! Another ride! And, one during the week. I almost felt like I was cheating...

    Did a nice little spin on the Leona Divide Truck Trail off of Bouquet Canyon with Joe Mac and my old boss Ken Busse near the summit across the street from 5 Deer. It's a great after work ride. SOT needs some serious trimming! Yah gotta wear arm protection...

    Ken had to bail but Joe Mac and I went out and then back down a trail. No record breaker, just a cruiser.

    On the way back we took a couple little side trails that only go a hundred yards each that just drop you on to the same fire road but below. Joe decide he wanted to slide his leg for about 10-15 yards on decomposed granite under his bike in slow motion. It was hilarious! Well, I thought it was hilarious. Next day at work he had some most excellent gauze and white medical tape on his leg to prevent the oozing through his slacks. I don't know WHY I didn't get a shot of it...I still thought it was hilarious, he said it just hurt...Silly Joe Mac.

    That's the "Picture Slot Machine." It pulls pics randomly from the ride report and "I rode my bike today" threads. Click on one and you are transported to that page, often in the relatively distant past (for a site that started in 2014).

    That, or, after you've healed, just post up a ride you've done. Then it will be in rotation.
