So I didn;t ride Wdnesday due to a dr apt and schedule so Thursday was the day. I did something slightly different for my 20 mile spin, it was pleasantly cool start, borderline goosebumps, once I got level and uphilling that was gone fast, definitely nice breath of fresh air. Nice 20 miles of Horsey trails :)

Thinking of being somewhere else, not to get away from my family or anything, I just want out fo this valley! Next week we are planned to go to Pinetop so that will be nice. I hope to bring my bike but we will see. Nice ride around Horse trails, not much to report.
I got the Salsa back up rolling to mix things up and as usual it was a quick adjustmen since it's so similar to my trek. The plan today was to hit Hawes trail but from the good side. I like that trail alot, still just 1 -2 hike a bike section but those downs are so money. I filled in the blanks form there, solid stuff.

Tuesday came with a surprise. I was going about my normal hawes 20 mile business and while on High Noon I found a rattler with a little something hanging out of his mouth. I stopped in awe, the snake was pissed and I nervously walked by and took a few pics and off I went. Seeing that scene was a little uncomfortable as a many of the snakes prey run all over the trails, but to see that life lost in the hands of a nasty rattlesnake with venom left me uneasy. Was a good share for the internet that day though.

It's getting pretty summer up here in the AZ and I am getting grumpy about it too, not a good enough reason to be grummpy but man I am dying for some trees and rain. The Covid is still raging but things are starting to get back to the new normal and for me not much has changed at all. Hope this summer goes quick! This ride was early and nice as always.

Friday is here and am ready for the weekend off the bike. It seems that I could ride 7 days a week but my mind and body likes those two days off. I was connecting the dots for 20 miles and I on that awkward section for pedals on Magic Mountain I found my foot heavily clipped the rock on the right and with weight in the wrong spot I was instantly thrown to the ground. It hurt I lay face down not moving much for fear of anything badly damaged, after 5 seconds I got the bike off from the top of me and felt a good bit of burning coming from my arm. Turns out just some scrapes and cuts to my right arm and shoudler, and a brused side on my ribs. A little upset at a silly crash but I charged on as the blood dried itself and I looked forward to washing it out. I guess I got my once a year craash out of the way, seriously I never crash and so grateful to not be badly hurt.
