    Default VSalon Member Ride reports Sept 4 to 10 - Cool Mornings #CrossIsComing

    Labor Day Dawn Patrol.

    Spotted: one car, 2 deer, 23 turkeys, and a large radiant star rising from the horizon...

    It's becoming my job to get up early — not to ride bikes — but to scour the house in search of rodentia that may have found their way into the house via cat and/or dog.



    Got a ride in on the dadmobile afterward. Crazy about those Crazy Bob tires. I went fast yesterday, so today, comfort.



    found some new roads




    Life, uh, finds a way.

    I rode 46 miles this morning on Emma. If I had left earlier I probably could have done 60+ but it felt good to sleep in. By the time I got done it was in the low 90's with high humidity. Now I'm waiting out the heat before heading out to the garage to do some more bike building.

    Pictures, dirty Emma, I like the blue but it shows dirt, temps coming up before the turnaround, stopped for some refreshment where I filled up a bottle with ice and coke, and my project. I need the bleed kit arriving tomorrow to finish the assembly.

    Early morning Labor Day coffee ride with the usual suspects. What a gorgeous day to be doing anything outside, especially pedaling a bike.

    As things cool down a bit here in Southern NE...I am riding the Crockett CX more than ever.
    I'm a roadie at heart, but the quiet of the trails, going harder on dirt, is working in my head.

    Seriously...I decided to hop back in the saddle today for the first time in a few weeks, maybe I shouldn't have. It was fun though. Started out not too bad but the nastiness moved in from the SE to cover Portland before I got back home. The last two pics were taken in the exact same spot, one right after the other. The first is looking North and the second looking South toward Portland.

    62.5 mile metric century with my wife - this route was an altered version of our northern route

    Trying to ride piano, pianissimo even.


    But this was made loud to play loud.


    Often I ride a mountain bike on those little bumps in the distance.


    Found a tranquil spot.

    Beautiful day but feeling sluggish so just headed up and down PA side of Delaware River. This shot is at the bridge to Frenchtown. Unfortunately, hit a pothole on the way home about 15 miles later and shattered a relatively new rear Bora. Expensive junk miles.

    A great ride after my mini bike riding break. A ton of smoke haze in the air.

    Last weekend of the summer and I hit the trails with two friends. I chose to punish myself on my hardtail while they were riding on their seriously pimp 150mm endure sleds. There were several Black Diamond sections and mostly I walked down to make sure I could walk the next day - it was over my head! The rest was fun and exhausting and reminded me how much more work riding a hardtail compared to FS. Still, I loved it!

    The other photos are of my team, wrapping up summer with a swim in the icy Pacific Ocean up here in BC - it was a great way to prep for grades one and three :)


    Sorry they are all rotated. You get the idea. It was a great weekend.

    The smell of burning paper and my first asthma attack in twenty-eight years did me the favor of keeping my shakedown ride on the new bike, fully loaded for a four-day bikepacking jaunt in a week and a half, pianissimo. It did confirm that I will be wearing boots that are made for walking on my high altitude single-track social event. It was a grand five hour tour of the local single-track, Kelpie Cycles world headquarters, and REI. I am a frame bag and liquor store run away from being ready for lanterne rouge west of Salida on the 2017 Kelpie Kampout.

    The Harvest Moon is tomorrow night, but the forecast calls for rain.

    I don't mind riding in the rain on occasion, but my general formula for full moon rides is: Rain / Decent Mobile Signal / Singletrack - Pick Two.

    So I went out for a short solo ride tonight (sans precipitation).

    Perfect late summer evening, perfectly clear, low 80s, and an almost tropical breeze.

    Watched the moon rise over the Charles at Cutler Park.







    Wish I brought a real camera. Could have stayed out much longer.
