Lets goooo

Got my work all done for the week and got a great ride in the morning and then we packed up and headed for a snow adventure up in Munds park to celebrate LuAnns birthday! I really don't mind the break in riding anymore, which is really good so I can really relax.

OK ok

I managed to talk my wife into a Tuesday evening ride which are the best! The kid caught wind of it and wanted to go, that was fine so we hit the paved trail he likes and all was well.


I guess by now I burned off most my mental issues and 5k of climbing can do that, kept coming close to 5k rides this year but I wasn't putting in the final effort, and usually short on time ya know, but finally got a 5k for Febuary I guess.


It was one of those very very wndy days on the trail, which is just fine it doesn't bother me. Everytime I left the ground I was quickly reminded not to, luckily I didn't eat any dirt.

Nice n cool

I had a really rough weekend after returing, alot of emotions were stirred up and I was not as happy as I would have liked to have been to be home. In a short story, I really don't like living in Gilbert AZ, its not bad, it's just not what I want. I thought I would have some relief by thursdays ride but I was still feeling depressed, oh well, life goes on.

CT Mountain BIking!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh man, the brother provided my old bike and the weather prevailed and I was off for a ride! It was sooo nice out and once I got pedaling I forgot how much I like that bike. All steel, all old, it felt so good under me also that 22t cog was amazing. I coud have rode all day but with only two days to spend with family I kept myself under control. Wish I went out the next morning but this was one and done for me.

NYC walk

I finally got to visit my parents in CT, transfering form the airport to the house I had to take some trains and took a nice morning walk in NYC, place is still a mess but central park is my favorite!

Ride with my favorite two

We finally got out on bikes, everyone enjoyed themselves and great doing something all together outside on Sunday.

Hawes to myself

The Mesa marathnon was back at it again and the pass was closed so I figured worst case scenarioI woud start at the commute lot, however when I got past the light I followed the buses and couldn't make it to the pass parking lot so I started at the bottom of scorpion and pedaled myself on up for a good run of trails. I had to take the boy to swim at 8:30 so I was done early, early enough to not see one single person! yep had it all to myself, mostly in the dark though..... The wonderful smells of the desert are trickling in, smells awesome!

Morning circus

Man for a Friday the place was a mess with hikers, horses and ofcourse bikers. Not too bad once you get out away from the parking lot, its an amazing trail system and it shows, definitely changed alot the last 7 years! Such a beautiful day!

Loathing these winter morning going away

Man I am enhoying the trails right now!

Got yelled at from behind going down big sister, that was pretty lame, I always move over for anyone behind me, even ebikers, oh well.


Classic friday, not much to report.

Mountain South

It's been a long time coming for a south mountain ride. I got a later start this morning due to schedul so that meant no traffic on the way over there going west so I did. Always a humbling experience going up national with one gear, sure I could have put an easier one on but I am lazy, walked a few sections but very rideable. I had to decide between corona and geronimo, cornoa won today. After that was rode then I decided to go up to helipad and phew I didn't have a clean pull unfortunately, I guess I got to want it more, excellent ride.
