Mid Sept

Here we are, now mid September and heat advisories still being posted. I am pissed, I have had enough of this heat, a break is coming wednesday, maybe even rain, I am looking VERY forward to it cooling.

Not all too bad

Legs started off very wonky on this one, they warmed up shortly though as they do by the time Friday rolls around, slightly more upbeat on this ride but nothing off the charts, a good roll on the dirt and looking forward to two days off the bike.

Nutmegger

CT has been on my mind ALOT, those green trees outside the window, cool air, birds chirping, owls hooting, bugs more chirping, winding country roads, homes with yards, and most importantly sweet sweet shaded tree filled moist dirt trails. For now my home is here in Puke Valley, sometimes harder than other times to step back and remember how good I have it even here in Phoenix, still I yearn for rural life, anyway thats where my mind was on this ride and has been for some time. Riding is good I can't complain, but dang that sun is always blasting......

Steel Beast

I got the belltown all switched over which only consists of putting my wheels on from my Trek, they're two slightly different bikes both with fnatastic ride qualities. It's always fun to make the switch over, I forget how lucky I am to have two bikes!

New Lost Sheep Trail

Went on a ride over at Usery, passed a new trail a few weeks ago that read lost sheep, I haven't ridden it yet but this ride out of curiousity checked it out. Turns out it wasn't too shabby, its a direct and decent route to the nature center, narrow and good, theres so much more room for beter trails at Usery but they still do nothing.

Pick me up n take me away

Another Monday in the saddle, another Hawes ride, got buzzed by some US military on my ride, was freaking awesome! Still not feeling the valley right now, lots of shaded trees and crisp fall air on my mind, ofcourse I am not talking about AZ.

Hawes Mix N Match

I ran threw some trail route ideas in my mind, it changed on the fly as I went and ended with a good result, now on day 12 of rides, feels totally fine I must say, body or mind was in no way looking for a break in the cycle, but I do feel this binge needs to coe to an end on Saturday since I need to stop sometime right. This ride was fine and dandy, getting time for tires soon, dreaming of fall in the northeast or somewhere in Utah, for now I keep dreaming while understanding how extremely fortunate I am for all things in my life
