i had ten confirmations to ride, but somebody started a rumor that the 30% rain forcasted meant rain for sure and that there was muddy spots on the upper parts. no mud and not even close to rain. in fact the weather was perfect for riding.
so only SS cobes and matt showed up
in the parking lot some of my team revolution members were assembling for some long ride that incorperated part of our ride and a lot more.
sounded tempting , but my knee is not ready for more miles than what i planned today.
flying dog this time of year is lush, green, flowery and fun fun fun. it has climbs that are not too steep, but just rocky enough that you don't fall asleep. heart rate stayed around 160-165 and we climbed in a 36x24 for the most part.
here is a pool of spring water in green grass valley. this trail has heavy shade parts as well as sunny climbing single track. once you are done with about 8 miles of climbing ya got another 8 miles of fast flowing, twisting single track that was built by riders that know how to build fun trails. can't stress enough how fun this trail was today!!!
the men in blue were everywhere adding to the ever growing group that was going on that longer ride.
here is the group of tough guys on thier mission.
its great being part of this fast blue trail eating machine.
the ride took us 1:38 which seemed much faster than the 2:24 that i did this trail in november when my bike was a 1x9.
