Another weakly ride report.
It's getting easier.
I started riding in late June when it was finally dry enough to go outside without a lifejacket and rowboat. I was doing short rides, coming back with sore "seat regions" and aching legs. My goal for the summer was to work up to 50 mile rides with no major drama. I think that I made it.
Monday- 25 miles solo, around town with some hills. I pretty much followed the route that Darthweasel and I had taken a few days before.
Thursday- 31 pretty quick miles. DW and I went mucking about some parks and trails. In a hundred yard stretch I narrowly avoided a toddler, a squirrel, a squirrel, and a squirrel. All four had walked right in front of me and stopped. I took that as a sign to slow down a bit.
DW was making the hills bow to him. We went back to the fast narrow twisty trail and endangered our lives a couple of times.
Saturday- 48 miles. I had been wanting to ride the Banks to Vernonia state trail for quite a while. I had ridden it once in 1998 and there had been huge improvements since. I took some pics for your viewing pleasure. Not that kind of pleasure. You sicko.
The ride back to the car was mostly downhill, fast and fun. Watch out for the horse's (slightly used) breakfasts though. They are hard to spot.
On another subject. Fucking Drummers, How do they work?
