Well, this ride was cruddy compared to all the others this year, but at least it’s still riding… It was dusty, I got a flat and had given my tube away the last ride, I was sweating like a pig and Nate and Zac must have thought I was going into cardiac arrest so they kicked me off my own tire and took over changing it… or they didn’t trust me with their tools, either way I appreciated it. Then when I put the tire back on, somehow I didn’t get the brake rotor in-between the pads, went about 100 yards and about went over the handlebars when I tried to use the front brake and the pad flipped out and got caught in the spokes… bent the crap out of the inside pad and ripped off most the pad material. Once again, Zac and Nate helped me get it apart and bent that pad back to factory-straight and put it back together. Finally we were able to ride the rest of the ride.
It was a pretty big group. Zane brought his girlfriend, Katie, and she could ride! *Not that I’m sexist or anything, I’m sure there are tons of girls out there that could kick my trash all over the trail… you just don’t see them out in the wild very often 🙂
