Right now I’m waiting for the weather to happen, to find out if I’ll be riding the White Rim this saturday with Chris and Dave. Waiting, and waiting…… I’ve never been very patient. In any case, I need to track down some better shoe covers, if the ride goes on it’ll be COLD. I do…
Hauled myself out of bed at 0505, ate breakfast, and rode up to work. Making this a habit will be fabulous training, in the ~15 miles up here (a very rough guess) there’s almost 1.5k of climbing, and about 4oo’ of descent. My legs are still roughed up from skiing saturday, and never really loosened…
Found the north Kaibab FS map at a new outdoor store in the area, one which nicely is open on Sunday. Some good options for the northern part of the loop, it’ll be a bit until I can check it out. This is turning into a fun project.
(Yeah I’ve got a lot of energy this morning. No training, maybe a hike later, and I really am not keen to start the days necessities of grading and laundry, ergo lots of posts. But that’s why this thing exists anyways.) In the interest of hoping on the diy/enduro/curiakstyle race/ride bandwagon, I propose the Kaibab…
New World Order?
One of the small pleasures in life I’ve adopted recently is following national politics on television. There have been numerous times in the last few months when I’ve lamented missing The News Hour while on a ride, and I try to catch This Week sunday morning whenever I can; sundays usually being slow or off…
Just read the Dave Harris and Lynda W cranked a 4:26 double lap of THE LOOP near Hurricane. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t match their split for one lap, though I think I’ve done it in 2:30ish early last year. Good to know what’s possible.
Had a truly idyllic morning playing in the snow; I’m impressed with the quality and beauty of Flag’s ski trails. I’ll have to get back up in the summer and ride there also, and hopefully ski a couple more times. In three and a half hours I didn’t ski all the trails, more than can…
Weather for a White Rim next weekend does not look so good; will have to see what materializes. I’d love to go, but too far to roll the dice with rain. The Flagstaff Nordic Center, however, got 4+” of snow today, so tomorrow is sure to be excellent. Contemplating selling a kidney to get some…
Too much going on in my head right now, a lot of which wants to make it’s way here. This is the quick and dirty solution. (West Wing reference for ya.) Riding TodayHauled myself out of bed at 0515 and rode the ~15 miles uphill to work. Pushing the TIv3 gear (34:16) up the steady…
My parents and sister are in the Pheonix airport, and Meredith and I are off in a few hours to join Freezefest for the next three days. Christmas may have been run of the mill, albiet in a good way, but new year’s promises to be excellent. Freezefest started with a stupid idea amongst outdoor…
