The weather man was calling for rain last night into this morning and they were right for a change. The plan was to do 2 laps of the French Creek race loop - plan was canceled due to weather.
Fortunately Dan posted up a Sals ride for 2pm, after the rain and let it warm up a bit. The ride started out at Dodson with 5 or 6 of us, Ian was lagging off the back after a long winter of not riding. We sent him out the road before the switchbacks, now the group is really starting to break up as Luby Jr broke his freehub - another one bites the dust.
Somewhere between the Boulder Trail and the Three Bitches we picked up a really strong SS Redline rider - this guy was rocking the climbs! Finishing the loop back at Dodson for a refuel and lap 2, unfortunately the others had to head off to other Sunday things. Dan, SS'er, and I headed back toward St. Lukes at a fast pace, dropping off the SS'er for his commute home. We then went out to finish the 2nd loop at a very brisk pace.
Earlier in the ride was saw some assclowns riding dirt bikes and ATV's at Constitution, as we rolled through again the police were there questioning/arresting? the ATV'ers. Dan was running on empty both time and legs, so we boogied the Spanky bypass and took the road up from there back to the cars.
Just as I was driving home it started raining, what great timing! I got in just under 3 hours for the day and was really digging the new bike, while trying out some lower tire pressures with the Stan's wheelset.
Bed time now.
