FINALLY, THE SUN COMES OUT, THE TEMPS RISE, AND WE CAN GET OUT FOR A GLORIOUS ROAD RIDE...WITH A COUPLE OF ISSUES.

I AM ADDICTED TO BICYCLES. AND TODAY WAS THE REASON WHY. THE PACK, JONO, CHARLIE B., BRENNAN STEGE AND MYSLEF DECIDED TO CELEBRATE THE PARIS-ROUBAIX LOCALLY BY RIDING THE 80 PLUS MILES OF DIRT AND ASPHALT ON THE BURNS-ROUBAIX LOOP. NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKY ALL DAY, AND DESPITE AN ISSUE OR TWO, WE HAD A PERF DAY BACK ON THE BIKES AS THE WINTER FROM HELL TRIED TO SHOW HINTS OF WEAKNESS IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS OF COLORADO.
TODAY WAS THE FIRST MOUNTAIN STATES CUP MTB RACE IN FRUITA...A SERIES WHICH I DEDICATED MYSELF TO LAST SUMMER, BUT YOU KNOW, INSTEAD OF DRIVING THE HUNDREDS OF MILES, PAYING WAY HIGH ENTRY FEES, MAKING MANY PODIUMS AND GETTING NOTHING FOR IT, I DECIDED THIS YEAR WOULD BE BETTER SPENT RIDING WITH THE HOMIES AND LEAVING THE RACING TO THE PEOPLE WHO FEEL THERE IS SOME VALUE IN THOSE OVER PRICED NO PRIZE GIVING RACES.
TODAY WAS A GEM WE DUBBED THE "JAWS OF LIFE II" RIDE. YOU HAD TO BE THERE.

A LESSON LEARNED ON HIS FIRST LOOOONG RIDE. EAT MORE, DRINK MORE, EAT A BIG BREAKFAST, AND GET RID OF THE SPACE SHIP DEBRIS SADDLE THAT WILL NOT ALLOW YOU SIT DOWN FOR A WEEK.

  1. It was an awesome day, perfect for climbing as well.

    F-ing hilarious. Nice choice of parts, Bren. Is your gramps sending you some creme and Tylenol now?
