Good ride

I spent a good part of the day in the car as I had a client meeting in Bar Harbor, about 220 miles (one way) away. I got picked up by my boss early this morning and we picked up one of our designers in Bridgton and then headed up the Maine coast. Beautiful day for a drive, and headed to a pretty spectacular part of the state. The meeting went well, got to go out to lunch at a good restaurant in Southwest Harbor (had a killer lobster roll) and then we jumped back in the car and headed home. I figured a day that had nine hours in the car could only be capped off by getting out for a night ride. JJ was game as he had had a similar day spending time in a cramped space down in Concord so we hit the trails at 9pm. I got in about 1.5 hours total (I picked up about 20 more minutes then JJ as I had the ride to his house and the ride home)- it was good to get out into Davis Hill and we got to ride the new section of Two Bridges and then headed over and climbed Nasty before turning around and riding back down.

Tonight JJ's legs were more of what I had expected on Saturday and I was seeing pretty crooked as I tried to stay on his wheel going uphill. I've descided that my goal this summer is get to the point where I can ride clean up Nasty on the SS. I'm not there yet but it's doable.

Rumors are flying around (or at least I'm trying to start them) that PJ may come over this weekend for either skiing or riding. I'm voting for riding as I really don't have any interest in skiing right now. Time will tell!

That's it for me- midnight is only a few minutes away and I need to go snag some sleep. But maybe I should check for ticks first.
