Not sure of the trail names or whatnot, but I did these last Saturday and Yesterday they were quite different after the deluge this past week. Phoenix Mountain Park received quite the refresh after the storms. Many sections damaged with new rocks replacing old ones that were washed away. Super nice tacky singletrack. Got my bike ready for an upcoming bikepacking ride out near Picketpost this weekend. Stoked.
3 rides including the last one since 12-26-09.
Nice cross bike ride up to Cave Creek and a really fun ThNR this past week and a SATMORN ride yesterday. I need to ride more.
Of course, these represent only real rides where I actually use cycling shoes and a full pack of the necessities for a real ride farther from 3 miles from the house.
It is interesting that the Schwinn Tempo has become the ride of choice. I put a pair of incredibly old Shimano (I believe the original DX) flat pedals that I had on a BCA Classic MTB when I was a Junior in High School. It is nice to have something from the past that was used and is used again without any complaint.
Brooks saddles. We have a sickness.
I like them.
