Gold Goodies

The day had come when I got to show Robbie around Gold Canyon. After riding National with him so mnay times I wondered if it was going to be dull for him. We chugged on an absolute beauty of a morning. Lots of pictures and trails were had, but no recording for y strava. I showed him alot of the goods. I had a realy scary moment on Technical trail where I took a rocky line that ended in a drop, I never remembered the left line being a drop I stalled and had nowhere to set my foot without falling over and breaking it, I cleanly ejected over the bars in a last ditch effort and landed off camber onto my hip/side. It hurt a bit but could have bee SOOOOOOOOOOOO much worse. I pedaled out a bit sore but now it's Sunday and I feel good and ready for the week ahead.


A nice ride with Robbie on Mormon/National. A slight breeze offered relief for the climb. On the descent it was mega busy, it got quite annoying for all trail users I am sure. I followed Robbie down, he got alot faster and it was nice for a change for me to follow him. Hottest morning yet, but still in one piece and looking for more.

Loopy loops

Hawes was the deal for Wednesday, happy and healthy the pedaling was great and mission complete. Really busy out there.

Getting hot in here

It's heating up and man these mornings are getting sweaty. Still way better than riding later in the day that's fierce, we are now past the solstice and closer to getting thru summer thank goodness.


We had a bumpy wekend without AC, we survived by an window ac unit I bought for our bedroom. Also an incident occured to LuAnn that was unfortunate and saddened me. She is fine but scareed from an auto incident. My head was veyr busy on the ride but the ride went down no problem.

Corona "de loma"

Friday was game day, scheduled to ride Corona at South Mountain with Robbie. He seems to like South Mountain and challenges so off we went. It was a clean fine morning, getting to corona was the same, a grunt up Mormon and National. Robbie cleaned alot for Corona, I cleaned all of it nicely and bike was in one peace making me a happy guy. It was a speedy spin back to the lot that I wish I had a different gear for but it was fun trying to catch Robbie. He left and I threw in some extra miles, got home to find that we were about to start a 5 days weekend of no AC in the house in lovely 109F temps.

Sprinting to the Solstice

While this summer has not been bad at all for me, I am however very much looking forward to the future and cooler weather. I have been tearing up the pool with Landon which has been a blessing, lots of rides too, I am so grateful. Rode around the horsey trails and started climbing further up Usery pass to ass more elevation.
