Sunday AM Ride

Finally got out for a long dirt ride. Cannot beleive it took til JUNE to happen. DEA and I met at his house at 7 am to start and as I arrived at his house his kids met me at the door to tell me that he'd overslept. Apparently DEA texted all his friends for the ride and they all showed up. SO the two of us set off for a good ride. We explored some new trail and rode some old favorites. All in all it was pretty good. I decided that since DEA was running a 2x9 I would not use my granny gear. As a result we both did our fair share of walking. Have to keep the walking shoes in shape for the SS.


These shots are mid way down the Red Tail trail. Behind me in the distance is Mt Washington. Behind DEA is a bunch of scrub.

The ride was inside of 4 hours which was good since we'd both be in the dog house if we were out any longer. Ended up with a rolling time of a little over 3 hours, about 26 and a half miles with about 3000 feet of climbing.

Works out to about 3 laps at the 24 hour race. Boy am I in trouble.

that has to be one of the best pictures I've ever seen of myself- no really I'm serious.

CHiP's watch out.
