    Did an early morning (0530) road ride in the desert. It's a standard time during the hot part of the year and June is the hottest month here. There's a section of Rt 66 west of town that has a great descent through a canyon. I was bombing down it towards a section of potholes when I suddenly remembered I was on a road bike and I had to go around them. I'll get it figured out.

    Rode to work on Friday, complete with biblical downpour on the way home. Then 84kms on Saturday morning, complete with damp shoes from night before and sore legs by the end.

    Mate, I'm so glad I didn't ride on Friday. There was about 20 minutes there where I was looking up plans for large wooden boats!

    It was pretty disgusting. There was waves of water across the road at some points and it didn't smell real great and looked a tad brown from my bike light. Storm water overflowing...I decided drinking from my bottle was probably a short cut to getting sick!

    Spent Saturday with the fine-tuned version of the house gravel extravaganza. Added Old Macedonia Rd to make the route epic-er. Part of the Farmer's Daughter ride, only we did it west to east instead of the other way? Anywho, many climbings, many rocks, one flat (me on 26mm tires - Mike I need a gravel bike!) and friends who stop for photos.

    My view for most of the day.



    Met a nice guy who offered us water. House is for sale I think.



    Road shoulder hijinks.
