Another wonderful shot at a ride, Started off at the park and ride without much plan, found myself looping around the mountain. Finaly cleaned climb to twisted sister since the monsoons rutted it. Then on up the Alpe, Gidro is running very sketchy. There in the middle of the trail was a tortiose! luckily in a good enough spot for me not to crash. I took a few pictures, such a cutie. Off I went on a clean run and worthy ride for the day!
Some sweet clouds rolled in and provided nice cover for the morning ride, still very sweaty but slightly cooler. I did two laps of RMR and then went to look for a friends tube he lost on Iron Goat. Looking for it was very distracting while paying attention to not eat dirt, didn't find it, 3x alpes and plenty left in the tank!
It's that time of year, it has now been 20 years since the towers have fallen. It still upsets me at the gross negligence that it was not able to be stopped, I looked at the timeline from the plane from Boston and communication and the second plane, it's incredible to think this was possible. Those moments before so many lost their lives and thos who didn't but forever changed, my heart and prayers go out to them. I went on a ride, a big ride, I guess I should have kept going, I would have covered all the trails on that side of the mountain. I still had plenty of leg in me, I really want to do some big rides, I can't convince my wife though.
