    Marc,
    Had fun riding with an Austin today. Made a pit stop on the way home to replenish my tube supply in the old Camel Back (your welcome Austin)


    Tim



    P.S. - Isn't Austin a strange name for a lady? I think that was one of the highlights of todays ride

    Great ride today with lots of repairs. Thanks for the tour, Tim! I'm glad I decided not to bail after that first climb. Johnnypoach was in typical crazy form with the bushwhacking. Good to ride with Lady Austin and Marc too. Marc's got skills. Jeff is gaining a lot of confidence. Nice taking that small drop - you too, Brian. Steve - get the derailleur replaced!
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Marc definatly has some skills and was fun to ride with. I am going to try and hook up with him for a ride out in his neck of the woods sometime. The amount of repairs today were just silly today. I have never been on a ride when that many thing went wrong with the bikes. But it was still alot of fun. I was suprised how much of that ride I remembered. The last 30 minutes of the ride was fuzzy but from there on out Brian was able to lead the way. Thanks Brian!

    The AZ bike crew is definatly getting much better. I though you guys were going to kill me during the first 40 minutes of the ride during all the climbing. That route makes you earn the fun stuff on top of the ridge. We will have to hit the Res. again.

    Where we riding next?

    Heh, the first 40 minutes was actually my favorate part of the ride. Techi hill climbs rule. Though a few of those were a bit too steep the last couple were fantastic (before and after the drop footage).

    You guys should head further east for a couple rides a month so I'll be able to join. As much fun as today was I just can't picture myself going that far every weekend to bike when I have some pretty damn good stuff 4 miles away. Anything under 1:30 I would def be able to make it though.

    I was ready to pass out right before that last stretch of hike-a-bike. Hangovers and MTBing definitely don't mix. It was worth it once we got to the top of that ridge though. Despite the dizziness and nausea, I felt like I rode pretty good today; clearing a bunch of rocky sections and a number of logs. I'm almost back to where I left off ten years ago. Still a long way to go - mostly I need more confidence.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Cool riding with everyone today, thanks for waiting for our late asses and not ditching us.

    I think I've convinced Austin to buy a new shifter. His is just plumb wore out. Amazing but true. Next time maybe we can do Case Mountain or... other places.
