so i did 3.5 hours instead and limped home.
here is wastch, my usual warmup routine cause its just right outside da house. another nice day huh.
jeez look at me i'm a "redneck". oh well the start of my funny bike riders tanline.
so i rode from millcreek to corner canyon. yeah yeah, i know i was just there, but there is not a whole lot of dry trails right now. anyways it was a head wind getting over there on 13th. push push in the wind at 21mph. i am getting good aero training at least.
i also filled a 3 liter water bladder and stuffed it in my pack just incase i needed more water and the extra weight is a good workout. really good!! dat is heavy.
although i had 28 psi in the tires today i felt slower on the f29 front shock. even at lock out it still has a small amount of give to it.
uummmm, the same pic as above? i'm such a dork...
then the ride back and more head wind....huh?...again? yes the wind must have changed and i had to push the same wind back home.
last night when switching forks i put on a sram x.o. short cage rear derallier. i had this one laying around just waiting to on this bike as i run it as a 2x9 and sometimes 1x9. with the new cable on there it didn't really shift as fast, but once it stretches out a bit should get me the usual click/shift that i like sram for.
i just liked this shot. its like having a camara on my knee. hey its "kneecam"......
just as i was pulling up to big cottonwood canyon my right knee started screaming out in pain. i was spinning all ride, but i could feel it coming on from the last ride. so i skipped the hill and just rode a couple of laps on wastach with the million other cyclist. its such a parade on the weekends there.
along the road there a rodie on a very fancy TT bike went by sooo fast that i almost didn't see him. he past without even making a sound. which was puzzling me as i seemed to be flapping in the wind like a loose sail on a ship. he even had a TT helmet and lycra booties. boy he must have been really cutting the wind to do that.
