Today I was a very irresponsible homeowner. The temps were in the lower 60's and the sun was shining brightly. I got off to somewhat of a slow start this morning. "Food hangover" from last nights German cuisine which was served up at Celeste and Ron's. The food of course was all very rich. That along with Beck's, St. Paulie Girl, and assorted German wines made for an interesting evening.
So my choices upon waking up this morning were yard work vs. mtn. biking. Needless to say mtn. biking won hands down. Actually, it wasn't even close to being competitive. My initial desire was to ride Murphy single-track today, but I really didn't want to make the 45 minute drive. So, Elm Creek became the obvious choice.
Bella and I walked for about an hour and then I had some breakfast and was at the park at around 11 a.m. I ended up riding for nearly 2.5 hours and put in about 30 miles on the 29er. What an absolutely awesome day. After riding I stopped at the club to stretch, sauna, and shower.
When I got home a thoroughly cleaned up the Redline and detailed it. It is looking really good right now. I also adjusted the chain tension since it seemed to be somewhat loose and making a lot of noise on the climbs.
The leaves and other yard work will still be there tomorrow along with the school work that I have yet to get done. The weather on the other hand will not be like this for long so I felt that I needed to make the most of it. On the other hand... I'll still ride when the weather is in the crapper.
