Did a 200K Brevet.

That was an event.  A great re-introduction to road biking.  I have not ridden a regular old road bike enthusiastically for more than enough time.

Der Hammah, trigoatdork, Flo, stealthyhoneypot, Noel and my self did the ride.  It was 10 hours of awesome.

Did a rainy ride on Mt Elden.

I miss riding in Flagstaff.  When I first moved to Phoenix in 1985, I started riding on Mt. Elden in the summers from the first incredibly hot  one on.   Because every summer is pretty fricken hot,  I have missed very few if any since.  Some of the most memorable biking has been done on Elden.  I don’t go nearly as often every year because doing other things in life are just as memorable.  Not much has changed – with the exception of more trails.  Taking you more places.

Trails are good.

 

Built a set of wheels.

Man, a tubeless set up is the only way to go.

 

ThNR

 

I keep doing the ThNR.   In the middle of the summer, it is what keeps me on the bike.  A different ride and group every time.

You simply owe it to yourself to go to Fatso’s.

Order a skinny – but with cheese.

I put some of the skinny on the cross bike.

out for a loop

After numerous bikepacking events from my house that were usually out and backs, a rare 2-night loop presented itself to Yuri and myself.

Headed out of the house around 11 on a Friday and back to it at 9 on Sunday.

about 125 miles of bliss

South from the house to the Russian Compound. Out to Tempe via canal and Papago Park.   Swing by Daves Electric for some non-hops and over to a bush pusher for a round or two before heading up a hill to camp out.

Next morning, a drop down some local sweet, a quick review of pump track lines, a greenbelt ride, a nice singletrack in Paradise, some road riding, a picture of me at a bikeshop and some final miles to camp #2.  My local favorite.  Spur Cross/Tonto.

OMG. I am sold.

camp. I ended up sleeping right next to the fire.

great night for sleeping under a full moon

Out the next morning in a leisure manner.  Once on the road, we pinned it at ‘go fast’ and I was greeted at home with some fresh coffee.

 

Truly, good stuff.
