two whole days off work.
there might be a few moments to blog, make an overdue phone call or two, or generally catch up on some of the things that have been neglected over the past couple of weeks. like the lawn.
trouble is, i'm too busy enjoying all of the hours on my days off to really get much work done. it's just like that sometimes, especially when the weather gets real nice like it was today.
Jen and i joined our friends Chris and John for an "epic ride" of our own- Zion Curtain to Western Rim to Trail 2. That's approximately 50+ km of high desert trails with plenty of climbing and technical moves, just for the record. and the wind was going a steady 50+ km/hr at ride time, just to make it a bit more challenging.
here's an epic jam to go with the images from today's ride. crank it up and enjoy.
Jen shreds the Zion Curtain. obviously, Mike the Hammer wasn't the only one who was going to the gym this winter.
two riders were approaching (Chris and John)
John was enjoying being able to train for his participation in the upcoming Tour Divide epic in some optimal conditions. he hails from Pine Ridge in the Wyoming Territory. they tend to have real crappy weather up there, from what i'm told.
Ms. 650b powers on...
looking down on the Kokopelli trail from on top of Zion Curtain. the mountains in the background are the LaSalles and this is one of the first really clear views of them we have had so far this year.
on to the Western Rim and well past the "half way to cold beverages" point of the ride.
Chris- riding steady and taking in the views.
