Good to see that everybody is getting some nice rides in. I'm getting absolutely shelled at work and am lucky to get in one ride week.

I managed to beat the heat and get out for a night trail ride Saturday. I was about 9 miles in and thinking about my next move when, ambling across the trail in front of me, was a big-ass black bear. I figured that discretion was the better part of valor and headed for the truck.

Whole-lee-shite.

Dude that is freak'n impressive. My training schedule has me doing a 1000 K a month. You pulled most of that off over a weekend.

I thought I was riding a bit. I got nuthing.

I went on a loop of Fountainhead this AM. Was supposed to meet a buddy... showed up. No one. Pulled the 15min rule and left.

Fountainhead is one of those places that EVERYbody goes. There's only one loop, so if something happens, it won't be too long before someone comes along. I don't feel too sketched out about riding solo there.

Had a decent little loop: 1:20ish of getting to know where the rust ends and skills start again.

In the process of getting up/ready/eating/etc I didn't turn on my phone.

Guess who'd left a txt that he was bailing?

Oh well. I had a good little ride anyway.

The dog was giving me the stink-eye for leaving him here today. I'll take him running tomorrow.

WOW. I'm just happy with my 20 mile rides. RTR

Outstanding! I'm glad you were able to achieve that.

Thanks for the kind remarks and encouragement. Just got home to PHX - I'll try to put a trip report together later. I only have a few pics but the organizer took a few which I'll post here when he puts them up.

This one was taken near Big Rock Candy Mountain early Friday evening on the only bike trail that we encountered. This one ran beside a river and in the coolness of the evening, it was the best part of the ride.



More later - It'll take me a few days to recover from this plus I need a new pair of shoes. I did the second day with one shoe wrapped with duct tape. I need a new seat pad too. I got to ride on a makeshift seat pad for the entire ride.

Oh - when I came through Flagstaff, I saw a few RAAM teams. Mark my words - unless something bad happens, I fully expect a Bacchetta team (there are two teams on Bacchetta bikes) to win the team portion of RAAM.

Cool2 My first 'Expert level' trail ride

Following last week's abortive attempt and decision never again to try one of the 'Expert Only' trails, I had a change of heart on Sunday and decided to give the Sinkhole trail at Santos another go. This time I actually made it through, and without much drama. I still think you'd have to be a masochist to actually enjoy these kinds of trails, though. Unfortunately I didn't have my video camera with me, but this is what Sinkhole is like. Unfortunately none of these videos convey just how steep the climbs are, or how rough the ground is.

Aurelius: if you thing that's rough, don't come riding in VA or anywhere north of here. You won't like the rock gardens that go with the tree roots.

Yup, you'd hate to ride in New England. That didn't seem that rough to me

Come riding in Baltimore. If you're clipped in we can teach you to bunny-hop junkies.

Is there an actual Sinkhole on the trail?

I ask because we have a trail named 'Sinkhole' in Western NC that brings the gnar.

Here's a video (not mine): http://sirbikesalot.com/includes/pop...j=&w=492&h=276

GOOD STUFF!

Edit: And keep in mind that the camera distorts the steepness. I've ridden lots of stuff and this trail (where it drops off on the left) freaks me the f**k out. This is the only trail I know that a couple of my buddies won't ride.
