Shorelining Monday

     I love starting the week with a Monday ride, no better way to get off on the right foot and work towards riding at least 3 days a week. The schedule is not easy for me to ride more than that but I push and push and ride in darkness and get myself in hot water with my wife but I push with eagerness to get out to where I love to be.
     So I was up early in the morning and on trail with my headlight, I picked a starting point at Hidden valley which has a few hike a bikes but offered a change of scenery. It was quick spin to the Corner Canyon trials as I flowed along shoreline trail, the light came earlier as we are getting more into summer so more sunlight which is sweet since I have a feeling when LuAnn goes back to school I will be doing mostly all rides in the dark.
      Anyway the plan was to see or far I could get in an hour and then turn around and head back. As I was nearing the turnaround point something felt funny, I look down and found my crank arm just about  falling off. This is the second time I have had this happen, turns out this bikes bottom bracket shell is just slightly wider and that coupled with a stripped plastic shimano cap thinger was the last time it would wiggle loose since I know knew exactly what was going on. I hit 10 miles and was stoked since I was going to make 20 miles in under 2 hours. Turns out I guess starve was lying to me and subtracted 2 miles off my route back although it was identical, oh well.
