|Thursday's night ride in the hills left my legs feeling a little tuckered out. Seemed me and Fritz stood around more than normal shooting the breeze - maybe because we were both feeling it.|
|No bird in the tree.|
|Just one in Fritz's hand.|
|At the end of the ride on Friday I was starving, so I gobbled down whatever I had in the bottom of my bag. Cliff Builder bar was remarkably good! But then again, when you're starving the arse end of a dead rhino would be appealing.|
What I found interesting from Sunday's ride was the rolling speed I had compared to Peter and Tanya. Peter was on a 26'er, Tanya on a 29'er and me on the fattie. Conditions were hard packed - so much so hat Peter was running studs. On the flats where the two skinny tire riders would coast, I had to peddle just to keep up. Not really a surprise considering: I had a heavier bike, I had big fatter tires and contact patch, my gut is bigger than the two of theirs combined. That being said, I think that I still had more fun!
Do you read Bike Rumor? I usually go there two or three times daily to get updated on new bikes, parts, industry news, etc. I thoroughly enjoy the site. So much so that I even sent in a photo from a recent ride that Kristi posted up - check it out.
