I had this long drawout post on this past sad weekend. But after I read it and after the memorial ride we took to the crash site Monday nite I deleted it. Slowly life will go back to normal. Some sooner than others and some not entirely. So I thought about something normal to do and write about.
And that was grab the MTB and head to the local trails. I hit up Greenbush for a rocky ride of a little over an hour. Its quite a bit more enjoyable for me when Im not in zone 5 and ready to go over the bars at any moment. Still, too many rocks out there but manageable when I can take my time over them. It was a month gap between riding the Superfly and thats just not right. I got out Sunday morn too. Its going to be late July before I get to race the thing. So I have awhile yet to put in some more time on it. I do better racing a MTB. The tough efforts are shorter. I can push some good wattage for a short time but put me on a long drawn out climb and Im off the back. Plus I do have a little bit of skilz in the woods. My background in motoX helped with that. So I do look forward to later this summer to spend some quality zone 5 on that bike.
In the back of my mind today is a small tour I want to take up to our yearly week in Northern Wisco. The week I call Secret Training Camp. That will be the week starting July 7th.
As of today. I will be planning to leave 3 or 4 days before the fam and ride up. Its about 245 miles. Thats only three weeks from today. Sounds like a long time but will go fast Im sure. Im planning. More later.
