Cinco de Mayo?

May have to head out for lunch to get a last taste of swine flu combo before it's all gone.

Went out for an easy leg-stretcher worship session w/Steve Sunday am. Rolled thru Stonehouse to link with North Park trail & u-turned.

Yesterday, I got out for a true spin. Left home at 3:30 & shot up to the big green hill. Shot straight up to the top, rounded Summit Loop & skipped BoR to blast down Rooney Valley trail. Stopped in the Rooney Rd lot to psyche myself up for the climb up Zorro to DR. After dropping DR, I hung a left on RR & passed the chapel on my way thru Morrison. Thought of making the right to Mt Falcon, but better judgement decided against it.........good thing.
Next I wheeled into BCLP & headed ccw to link up with my exit by Fox Hollow & Stonehouse trail to arrive home at 7:20.   

Can't believe I felt pretty good the entire way, even jumped on the Steamroller to make a quick grocery trip immediately after getting off the Monkey.

Signs of spring/summer....

It's Tuesday, wanna fight?

Suis-j'en France?

Went or an easy spin on the backyard creekside trail under a gray, dreary sky. It made me think of '99 in Caen, pedaling around under the same conditions on a Saturday morning - chilly & a constant mist in the air.
Got my hopes up for Primanti Brother's.............never found it.

Back on the homefront, some dirt & plants met for a lifelong partnership of good tastes: tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, basil, cilantro.......mmmm, mmmm good.

Had a great pedal out at Buffalo Creek last night for the weekly, which I've missed the last 4) T.I.T.S. ride. 12 started, Jeremy lost a crankarm at the start, so we were down to  9 riders. Baldy-Buck Gulch-Strawberry Jack-Charlie's-Sandy = 22.8miles. Niiiiiiiiiice!

What's this 69-er shit people been raving about?
Sounds fun. Hell, I'll give it a try.

Swapped out the QR for a solid and threw on my old-ass beat-up flat-spotted 26" XT/DoubleWide/WTB WW 2.5". Dood, that thing is heavy! 1kg for the rim alone. 7.12# for the whole shebang. If it stops raining, I'll pedal it somewhere & see what's up.
