Don't you get bored????

I have probably ridden from my house, to the zoo, on the shoreline, to Red Butte, To Dry creek and beyond close to a 1000 times. No exaggeration either. It is just that convenient, There are countless different options to ride in multiple places on the trail, I can get in 2-5k of climbing in 2 hours and 20 miles if I choose to, I have the trails so dialed in I can fly on them and not break a sweat. I do tend to get bored with it in say May, when other trails start to open, but they are too convenient.

Today, due to an early start, I got off work early, I was kitted up and out the door by 4:30 (Head to toe in SaltCycling gear I might add, MASHer Jersey, New bibs and Fly socks) Didn't notice that till I was on the trail.

I headed towards the Zoo and Emmigration, hoping to have at least a few minutes on the trail before I had to turn around due to mud, riding up the canyon was the plan, Well I never had to turn around. Total HERO DIRT from the Zoo to Dry Creek (Which, of course is a slushy mess) I had a shit eating grin on my face the whole time, even as the SUn went behind the clouds and the temps dropped. Exhilarating, really.

Nope, I don't get bored.

Dirt-Afternoon-Salt Lake County

Made my way down to Draper to find some dry dirt riding, Mission Accomplished, retraced my route a few times, lapped on the double track with some one-track thrown in. Nice evening ride, the sun was behind the Oquirrh's by the time I got back to the car, a bit chilly.

Better than a 4 hour drive.

Pickin Up the Trash Talk

So, Not his real name has already tried to get me to wear his shorts on the podium, well I gotta get on the podium first, and since I am once again returning from a week on the east coast for work, followed by, in 2 weeks heading to Asia for 7 days, and then being home for 5 before the first "Race".

On top of that, I ran into She, who is being most affected by 'The Mistress" aka Rush at JFK as we were getting ready to board this flight home, seems her and Daughter 1 spent the week in NYC for some birthday fun. Well, she decided to give me a cupcake, and I can only imagine it is part of her husbands, and Ricks, and BK's and hell others evil plan to make this season more 'interesting'

Tweety Chair, here I come!!!!
