Banner Forest, 4/30/2011

Great ride today out at Banner Forest with Jeff, Dru and Allen.  We worked our tail off keeping up with Dru, but we must have done well since we all ended up with a Blue Ribbon from Pabst!

Best day so far for a bike ride! Sun, 60 degrees, and almost dry trails. Hit Greek row, K2, Banner Alley. What a blast.

Gold Mountain, 4/16/2011

Great ride today with Jeff. Rode up to Gold Mountain again, but today we rode to the back side, then a couple miles over to what I thought was the CenCom towers, but I think it was the wrong hill. Was a great view for 5 minutes, then a fog bank rolled in. I will post some more pics on the Facebook page.

Thanks for kicking my ass today Jeff. Like I said, I can bring you a 25 pound weight vest to even things out a bit next time.

Gold Mountain, 4/10/2011

Today is one of those days where it takes a bit if extra motivation to get out, wet, rainy and cold, but I know all I have to do is drop the whimp bomb on Jeff and there is no getting out of it. Rode a nice mountain road near Gold Mountain, not as much elevation gain as the summit, but enough to make you work, but stay on the bike most of the time. Thanks for the motivation, sorry if I pushed you to hard (that will teach you to not drink Crown and Coke till 0830.

Time 1:01:39, 10.68 miles, see http://j.mp/f2TBuO, 10.39 MPH average.

Ocean Shores, 4/8/2011

Another beautiful day down at Ocean Shores. I wimped out a bit, rode to Ace Hardware to get a bicycle tire pump cause I think my tires are a bit low (at least that’s my excuse for how hard I have to pedal), but they were out. My chain keeps hanging up at the rear de-railer, assuming it’s about time for the break-in tuneup. When they suggested the tune-up after 60 miles I assumed it would take months. Well after riding 20+ miles a week it I am already there.

Time: 21:11, 4.48 miles, see http://j.mp/eG3oYd, 12.69 MPH average.

What a great day for a ride! Sunny and cool, still had to push myself to get off my camp chair and climb on my bike but glad I did.

Time 37:16, 7.52 miles, see http://j.mp/gSU0KU, 12.10 MPH average.
