Visual distractions

Pretty tire these last few days, can't stop me from riding though. Got to earn those calories burned to pound some chocolate! Got sprinkled on just a minute and a double rainbow appeared, stunning, also ran into my buddy.

JUly

The fish hook catus has bloomed, this little one was hidden under a bush, I thought it was trash but found the surprise. Summer sucks, I wish we were somewhere else.

Morning sweat

Bit of the same on this one, humid, hot and dang pretty!

Gripper

Some overnight storms made a little difference, the clouds and moisture felt fine, body was great, noticed I have been gettign slower, must be the heat, great ride!

Clouds!

Some ncie clouds rolled in, supose to get some monsoon action, I guess we will see! Nice for a change in light n scenery.

Hawt N heavy

Family is in town, doesn't change too much but I am happy they are here. We don't have family nearby so whenever we get visitor its kinda nice. I did my regular thing, yes that includede a rattlesnake, I took a spin over on TRW which has been a long long time. It's hot, it sucks, I'm over it.

Sun n clouds

More clouds hanging around for the early morning, made some really nice light, its wild how much of a difference it changes the landscape, doesn't cool it though. Again I was hopeful for 40 but pooped out and called it good!

h20 for the soul

I had the idea of checking out the river, turns out it was a great idea, it was absolutely beautiful. I really need to bring swimsuit one of these days and hop in!

Not too bad

Well it's official, 1/2 way through my least favorite month. I find the heat comes full on in June and I have to submit and usually get over it, so that's what I keep trying to do. Decided to get some mine action, I got absolutely smoked by a hard tail rider, nice work! Can't wait for October!

Toasting my buns

Those hotter rides are taking a bit more of a toll, I was cooked after thinking of doing 40 miles, I lost my desire and can't compain about 36!

Happy for some clouds

I was surprised to find some clouds for friday morning, very welcomed, didn't do much but make it pretty but I will take it!

Beat some of the heat

Every year I tell my wife this is my last year here, every year I’m proven wrong 🤦‍♂️ I saw a first today, a woman on SS! And going up alpe 💪

E bike apologists

Click click, dead battery on the VW, 4am successful solo flat ground pop start the Dub. Too much climbing, 2 rattlesnakes, some circus characters, got an apology from some young gun ebikers on my climb, don’t know why but maybe cause it’s a motorcycle 💩 great morning 🤘

OK OK

Gettin a bit grumpy about the heat and living here, I know better, such a lamanite. I still would rather be riding than hiding in the air conditioning I should shut up.

SOMO

I finally marched on over to SOMO for a workout. I now can thu-sat early mornings available which is really really nice to beat the heat! I chugged up mormon and national for some fun. Could use some gear in spots but I mde 32x18 work 99% of the way. The plan was Corona and thats what I did. I can't help remember reading forkandshreds experience where he mangled his leg and got lifted out. I made a clean run and then a smooth ride back. Obviously I hadn't had enough abuse so back up mormon and down national. Rough on my bike and body but I love it! Ofcourse a fricken snake, this one looks different, maybe black, tiger or speckled I dunno. It was very quick to run away, not like those diamondbacks.
