Went back to Hawes for my favorite DH session, Gidro Pass I thin the sign reads, anyway I am amazed how well my legs are handling the abuse, the skies were still moody but it was humid and warm, found myself sweating quite a bit on the hike a bike section, didn't bother me, so happy to be out, what a great week on the bike, hope summer never comes!
Another great session on the backside of Usery, looming rain in the distance this morning I was not scared, it was overcast and warm, went for something a little different, a loop I have only done once before, a very nice change of scenery I loved it!
Wednseday I was ambitious, I wanted something a little different and get 20 miles worth, I did this loop a few weeks ago and liked it. The Horse tail trail is a little rough on one gear but its a change of pace. I came across another rigid SS on a technical quiet trail known as twisted sister. I said hi and debated asking if he wanted to ride together, something I never ever think to ask someone. We said Hi and i joked saying rigid SS aren't allowed up here. I went ahead of him and went about my business. The rest of the ride was fantastic, really great stuff, feeling strong and quick.
Cold weather has come in but that didn't stop me, having the sun on those 33F starts makes it sooooo much better, things are still very green out there, the desert is quite happy with flower and grass everywhere! Enjoy this loop, good all around loops.
