Night ride a bust

I had another one of my great ideas. I called Jamie and said " Let's do a night ride at Syncline" so it was on.  Beautiful weather, good pizza, glaring at the toll guy , met up with Carlyle , geared up and up the hill. Truck dies and then we realized it was low on fuel. OOPS! 4 and a half hours the tow truck got there and I got home at 2 am. At least I won't have to charge my lights . Poor Raul will now have a demerit on his license. O could have been worse. I'm not sure how though.

Week day ride

I got off work early today (real early) and that means ride.  So I grabbed Louis and Otto and we headed for Browns camp.  It's finally clear of blowdown and snow. I rained and hailed really hard on the way so thought it was going to be a death march but it ended up real nice. The trail was probably 60% dry and the greasy parts were really fun. No crashes and the kid's made some good climbs. I think I'll try it again this weekend.

Riding with a bunch of punk kid's

It was supposed to be 70-ish on Sat so I figured we should do a mountain bike with our whole family. Even Olivia. As a good parent I thought I could pull her on the trail a bike on the single track no problem. Well, it was no problem for me but she ended up getting a little scared when we were going to fast and ridding over log's. It was Solomon's first REAL mtb ride and he did great. We even had Jim and all his kid's and Brian(king of flooring) . So that was like....9 kids and 4 adults. Quite a show. When some of the smaller kids were tired they climbed trees.  as usual ,  everyone had a good time  and someone wrote in the dirt  on my van again. At least this time it didn't say " Free Candy Inside"
