Today was my last chance for a big XC ride, at least for a while. I took The Wife to breakfast, assembled an infant car seat then met some dudes at Heil Ranch. We climbed then descended, climbed then descended. The climbing felt good — comfortable and strong. The descending — well — BRAAAP! The book is done for now, and we’re pretty much ready for the kids. What a treat to let it all go for a few hours: railing turns, pumping rocks, seeking good lines but riding whatever appeared in front of me.
Whoa that’s a big rock! Might as well go straight over it.
