Scouting pics

Only one flat, one bee-sting, a little rain, a brazilian scratches, lots of big tire grabbing obstacles, hardly any real trail, way too much bushwacking. Not the best route, but any day in the woods is a good day.

This is how it started out

















A brief respite...can ride for a bit





















Eddie would make a good adventure racer ;)


















Hmm, interesting discovery


















Woohoo, no big rocks or deadfall in my way, for a few minutes






















We found a waterfall, though you can't really see it in the pic. I posted this one for me, this cute boy will be my husband next week :-)

















Only one flat for the day, it was mine, but it's starting to rain so Eddie graciously volunteers (again) to change it..a lot more quickly than I would have. Thanks baby (again).

















We made it out of the woods..not too far from the car. We were pretty close on our nav this time. It helped to have a map to use with the compass!! Duh.


















P.S. The new Ride424 jerseys are awesome!! They do run small, but the material is so soft and comfy. I think I will have to get some matching shorts now.

I'm making sure that Scott sees the picture of Eddie changing your tire!

I can't believe that you guys can still wear shorts while biking. It's so cold out today I actually rode on the trainer. That's just wrong!!

hmm, I'm very intrigued by this whole 'scouting mission' thing. What could it be? Can't wait to find out!

Brazilian scratches? Is that some sort of sassy Latin American scratch...extra fiery and hot?

I couldn't resist. Yes...you can tell me just how lame that joke was! Danielle you can chime in.

Jeff won't change MTB tires for me...but he's being nice about the road bike until I get used to it.
