    Default Weekend Ride Reports 11/16-18

    No snow in the forecast this weekend, I woke up to 32F temps, so I went for a ride! That is down right balmy at 8500' in November.
    The trails were perfect. The dirt was frozen, incredible traction. Just hammered so I could make it back in time to head down the canyon to work.




    I started a tumblr of pics to: robonza.tumblr.com . It's like a blog but with no words and more pics of dogs.

    I hit up some single track in my back yard. The dirt starts less than a half mile up the road from my house.

    Bumped into a guy last night who was wearing a World Champ costume and riding an orange Strong. Scott "srenda" was about two weeks late for Halloween but it was good time nonetheless.

    85 miles of pavement with a couple miles of gravel for good measure. Strava BMC 79 Challenge complete, fueled only by Hostess products. And a Mexican Coke.

    It's my birthday.
    Me and the wife, my parents, bro and his wife. 2 bottles wine and 2 growlers Half Acre.
    My present was pizzas flown in from NJ with my folks. Also had: homemade pizza on the Egg last Sunday and Petes in Arlington on Tuesday. Been a damn good week.

    Our guests leave 8am Sunday and thereafter I am burning off all this glorious excess. Then start it all agin for turkey day and multiple long rides in NJ. I'm a lucky guy.
    my name is Matt

    Ride cut short today with an icy torrential downpour, so I only got in an hour and a half or so. Probably not a bad thing it was cut short, though, as I'm pretty sore from a kickball tournament at work yesterday. Hopefully the weather clears up for the next week or so. I'll have some down time for Thanksgiving and plan on spending most of it on the bike.

    Happy birthday, robin...sounds like an awesome way to celebrate!

    Absolutely beautiful day out. And I rode on rollers for an hour this morning before anyone else woke up. Hope to take it outside tomorrow.

    I rode 83 miles to complete Strava BMC 79. Foggy and cold at the begining, there was a wonderful sun shining on a flat road loop so I rode it several times. When I was arriving home, rain began pouring down. Now it's time to have fun.

    Forgive me father, for I have sinned. It's been one week since my last confession.

    Did a variation of my city loop to open up the legs. Going no place in particular, in no hurry at all. The park was a nightmare, so I chilled out and tried to have fun. Chatted up some people, waved like an idiot at everyone I saw. On the first lap, a construction worker was mean-mugging me and talking shit about our kind. I let it go. On the next lap, I noticed his mood had not improved. I had my bottle out, and noticed his work boots looked a little thirsty, so I gave them a little blast. I did not complete a third lap of the park, thus robbing him of the opportunity to show his appreciation for my charity.

    Heading home, I rode in front of a wedding photographer, taking pictures of a bridal party standing in front of warehouses in Williamsburg. Recognizing the tackiness of the situation, I rode through, waving and grinning like a dunce.

    Explored some western Mass. dirt today, and Kinnebrook Rd. in Huntington may be even better than Green River Rd. That's saying something.

    Rode 38 miles today on a perfect fall day in NE Texas. Single digit winds in my face on the way out and a nice push on the way back towards town. Overall, I felt better today than I have in a long time. I had a nice average of 19mph with an average heartrate of 140, way better than a few weeks ago. Our house in the PNW is sold and our furniture is on its way to Texas. As much as I like the GT, I really miss the BLE and Argonaut. The Argonaut is in my hard case and the BLE is broken down to the frame. Emma needs paint so I don't know if I'll build it back up. I'm also eyeing a carbon Argonaut.
    I heart brown bikes.

    Easy ride out to our local sustainable fish restaurant where I met my 39 week pregnant wife and son. Crab is in season so we enjoyed crab and some lemons, mmmmm. Great family time.
    Feeling very thankful.

    Awesome weather today. Did 80 miles on the Spooky, about 50 of them on the regular Sunday hammerfest ride. The big guns showed up today too, so it was really fast. Followed that up with 30 more solo enjoying the sunshine and looking for a lost dog someone asked me to keep an eye out for. It was a good excuse to keep riding and pretty funny when the police found the dog chasing ducks on a golf course. I'm now going to proceed with eating everything I see.

    2.5 hours with a couple of Michigan beer drinking buddies and hard men. Every ride now is a gift and one ride closer to springtime. Beautiful day for a spin. Rare weekend ride for me. Long shadows even in the middle of the day. Grand Rapids to Rockford up the White Pine Trail. I need to lose 25 lbs.......

    I just did not feel like riding waking up this this morning.


    So the pups got to go for a hike, I had ambitious plans but turned around when the black pup looked too cold.
