    Had to ride my road bike to work today. Nothing will wake your butt up like the insane descent that leads to our office.

    2 miles
    668 feet elevation
    4 minutes
    Max speed - 51.9 mph :D

    No. A pair of high top skate shoes my GF hates. I realized I had no riding shoes about an hour before the ride.

    I rode this again last week, and crushed it uphill, with speed. Was pretty pleased with myself...

    Hope to repeat tomorrow.

    Finally got in a ride after a week off the bike. Felt good to get out for a spin. 15 miles later put me over 1000 MTB miles for the year.

    Sprinted around the back side of the lake at Bent Creek on Explorer Loop. Legs felt strong and I never dropped my seat down.

    Didn't feel like a real hard ride, which is good, because I've been off the trail bike for 3 months until last week.

    Did Cheesy again, with two good guys. We pushed it for a 2 hour tour, and probably doubled my last ride distance there. I was also hanging like a plant after too many rum and cokes.

    Did my commute here in Anchorage on my fatbike. F-ing sucked this morning with the ~foot of new snow and no plowed sidewalks. This evening it was amazing though, took some trails back, etc.

    That sure ain't Texas. There isn't a single cedar tree.

    the west has made me soft. It just snowed, and I have no desire to ride until the trails are clear again...
