Junior ride and cookout

What a day...............................................
Started the ride at 11:30 and had a great time, rode center st. to hoyt, east of hoyt and the dog park(and one of out riders got bit by a dog) around the dog park to the trails in homo holler and back the same way we went. It was a good day, a couple of good crashes by me of course,the first picture was how my bike landed after the first crash. Then the second I hit the stump by the golf course with my crank and it sent me almost over the bars but thank god my boys caught the stem and stopped me.OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The best crash of the day goes to Megatron when she went into the river crossing on the way home, "Do you smell like pooh?"
After we go home we had a cookout and sat around and talked, I guess Bubba must haved smelled the food over buy his house because he stopped by and so did Dr. Dave and Rob after there ride at the kettles.
So all in all it was a go time and we beat the rain. Just looked at the weather and it doesn't look go for the first time trials on wed. as it is going to rain mon. and tue. but the weather for this weekend looks like it will just turn around, lets hope..........

That is what I heard Russall say right after we heard a big" POP" come out of Keith's mouth.
That's right ladies and gents the big man went pop like a cheap bottle of the bubbly on new years eve.
The ride was great and I felt really good after the first lap, really I felt my best on the last lap when Jay turned it up alittle, I had much better control and flow and my power felt good.
So lets hope I can hold it for the season.
Went out for some raw fish after with the Tool, Sug and his #1, Liz and Rick. It really hit the spot .

Had a ride with the Bubster and both losers (Megatron and A'Bomb) along with the Tool, rode the MTB's in hoyt and then over to the dog park and the county grounds. I have a feeling none really liked the county grounds that much but the hills got A'Bomb to close her yaper a little.
I love riding the county grounds because most of the time its dry even when a lot of the other trails are wet and its a good speed run, a run in hoyt then to the dog park, ride the outer loop on the county grounds back to hoyt and then home, its a good test for me .
Two real funny things happened on the ride, first Megatron (on the mtb for the first time this year) couldn't get clipped into her pedals so that was like 5 mins of her almost fallen off her bike trying to get clipped in, then on the way home I ride past a guy on his bike with a laptop on his bars,open(no shit) and talking on his cell phone, I thing it was the funniest thing I've seen in awhile.
Going to try to hit the kettles this weekend as I'm not really up for the beatdown that would be given to me on the Holy Hell ride.
SEE YA...............................

Alittle more time in the saddle

felt great as of late to be able to get some much needed time on the bike. Candy and I road today and yesterday and had a great time both days, yesterday we were on the road bikes and decided to go out to crystal ridge and back, well we turned around on beloit rd as it was starting to get dark and neither one of us had lights. We put in about 25.8 miles and it felt real good as it was the first time the road bike has seen pavement all year.
Today we took out the mountain bikes, we started at the dog park and did two short laps then headed over to hoyt and to our surprise it was dry as a bone, acouple of trees down but good to go. We then did the west loop and it was too dry but alot of land has given up the fight and feel into the river so a little rework of the trail will be in order.
We scoped out the trails along the parkway and it will be awile for those but lest all hope for some dry weather next week.
The legs felt kind of strange today, alittle tired but still had good power, so I'm tension it was just the change of bikes. Still running the 15 in the back for acouple more weeks unless I get more trail time in then I think i'm going to goto the 16 just for climbing.
I added some pics form the road ride Candy and I took, I found my small camera and its memory card so I can take it with me on rides .
Well it's time to go
SEE YA..........................
