I miss my riding partner

Sigh...my favorite riding partner has been working out of town this week. That means riding solo, which is not always my favorite thing to do. Lucky for me today, though, TFML (aka Mike Livingston) gave me a call and suggested a lovely trail ride. We hit Dauset trails and had a decent low-key ride. I did end up with one scraped elbow though...damn this one creek crossing. It's tricky, but not really not that hard. Well, about my 5th or 6th time through it (trying to find the best line), I finally clean it and am already patting myself on the back when...uh...my rear wheel is spinning but I'm not going anywhere. Out of the saddle...spin spin, and....fall. On rock. Ouch. I don't know what happened other than my rear tire found the last possible root it could to spin out on. Ah, well. The rest of the ride was awesome. Can't beat mid-week dirt riding.

I'm planning on doing one of my favorite rides this weekend. I think I might just have to break something special out for it....and then we're celebrating Eddie's birthday on Sunday! Beers!

Don't worry, we're taking good of your hubby down south. I guess we'll have to do a warm-up to the birthday celebration tonight!

Congrats on your recent wins. You're killing it!

Hope your booboo gets better soon in time for your "weekend" ride. Perhaps we might just see you randomly out on the trail too, eh? We'll sing Happy Birthday to Eddie:)
Look forward to seeing you!

that creek crossing bites until you find the line. I know that as the hours go on at the race my chances of cleaning it will go down exponentially!
