I have been hating my bike lately because riding has felt like a chore. I've been exhausted from work and class, and haven't had much time or energy to ride. I've been stressed about my lack of hours on the bike, and that has made riding even worse. I've been training mostly alone, also, which I am not used to. My normal riding partner is busy with his schedule and has been putting in serious saddle time. I was basically kicked out the door Friday afternoon so I could go ride. I meant to go to Fort Yargo but I missed the exit so I headed to Chicopee instead. It was quiet. The air was crisp. The trail was smooth and flowed perfectly. Riding solo was a good decision, it turned my attitude back around.

Today, Eddie, Marc and I rode at Bull Mt. I had my way-too-big-for-the-mountains gearing still on so I definitely worked hard. We rode the Fool's Gold singletrack, that is some tough tough singlespeeding. Anyway, it was an awesome day 65 and sunny. Hopefully tomorrow's forecast for rain changes...but if it doesn't then I still have plenty of studying to do.

BTW, I heard that there was SNOW at the start of the 24 Hours of Old Pueblo in Tucson, AZ. SNOW! Is that for real?

This is the only pic I have of all three of us idea what I'm doing in the back? BTW, notice Eddie is sportin' the SIX up front.
