    But you've already made up your mind and that's cool, whatever...

    Thanks for the kind words guys. My legs are cooked right now. On a couple of those breaks I really had to catch my wind. migs, thanks for the peer pressure. It certainly did make me pick up my pace.

    I don't know the names of the areas like you guys do, but there were a couple of fast downhill sections were I was flying. Jeff, it was that section were we talked about the little rock hits that we flew over. To me that felt like mountain biking. Very fun. That A frame was cake. I should have tried it a few more times but didn't want to press my luck.

    Now if I could only get on my bike more than once a week I would be in sick shape for ski season. I have definitely caught the bug.

    What was migs heckling you back there the whole ride?

    That fast section was at the end of B street. You were also moving along pretty good when I got sucked into the muddy stream and you almost blasted me with a good shower.

    The stretch leading down towards the logging area is a fun downhill. Not steep but consistently down. If you liked that, we gotta get you to the Devil's Kitchen by-pass. That's a fun smooth downhill. Or better yet the Cornwall to 69 downhill on the big loop. But sorry, brotha, to be rewarded with those DHs you gotta do the climbs. They will come easier and easier. I love climbing now. You're definitely ready for the big loop.

    Oh and that's right!!! Major props on the A frame. I forgot you rode that without even hesitating. You got one up on Brian and Jeff now.

    If that dude wasn't walking his dog, I might have thought he was in search of some pickle park action.

    I think my wife is starting to hate you. Actually she looks at it as me getting out and exercising which is a good thing.

    That's my angle too. I can do this or hit the gym. Riding is waaaay more fun. Just don't let on exactly how techy it is. Perhaps she thinks you're riding rail trails or something...
