I’m excited to say that my bike is finally out of the shop and now it runs like a champ! It’s been over a month since my last ride and I can totally tell… I’m out of shape. I ended up going solo, but that was probably a good thing since I would have been embarrassed at how slow I was going at first, it took a little while to get back in it… not to mention I got my arse kicked on the root going up card, it had a huge hole dug out below the root and I hit it badly, the bike went straight up and leaned against the tree while I went flying backwards down the hill. Everything else on the rest of the ride felt pretty good.
Total trip ended up being 56 miles including road from/to my house.
Saw a few hunting camps, but not too many people on the road or trails. Richards had a ton of cows, it was pretty trampled, dusty, and cow pies were plenty… for how beautiful that trail is in the spring and early summer it’s been a little disappointing both this year and last around this time after all the cattle have their way with that valley :/
This ride will have to tide me over until next week, we’re headed to Oregon for the Labor Day weekend. After that make sure you give me a buzz if you’re putting a ride together!
