Saturday morning Camp out

Saturday morning was a ride out at the South side of the Camp again. Signed in was Casey Dean, G-Ted, Bidwell, Deerslayer and myself. Bidwell was a little late but signed in anyway. We chose to pedal on gravel over to the South side to get some needed miles in on my lazy legs. We took a couple hot laps and waited for Cuz when the call came. "I'm here, driving a minivan but I am here." By the time we found him he was a little in the dumps due to loosing his Blackberry. Long story short, we found it by making 10 calls from my cell to his. Lucky for us Deerslayer found it. I knew the guy had the lungs for cycling but who knew the guy could sing. This was the highlight of my ride Saturday...watching and listening to Rob belt out a stage worthy performance.

If the link works you will get to see a little of what we saw out there on that cobweb infested super fast single track.

Hope you all had a weekend as good as mine.

Hot Lunch




Spent the lunch hour riding Tuesday. It was nice being able to clear the mind and get some fresh air. I didn't realize how hot I would get with such a little effort. My shirt was soaked by the time I landed back at my desk. I think I'll do it again next week. Maybe an hour and a half instead of the hour. They'll never notice.......right!

Ride when you can folks cause the summer is about over. But hey, that's when the good riding starts.

Tomassini




Look at what I am riding now. Yup. Skinny tires again/ Still a 29er though. This will be a nice ride that I hope to put a lot of miles on. Nice comfy steel. Gotta love that. Might even make it to some of those goofy road rides that leave Bike Tech during the week.....just maybe.

Sounds like the Bike Tech racers had an awesome time at Leadville. Good job folks. Our buddy Kerkove kicked some butt too. Nice effort Jeff. Great finish.

See you all soon I hope.

Not much riding in the past few days for me. Pam has been on call so I get to be in charge of the twerps. I did have a chance to enjoy this fine sunset with my two little sweethearts Friday night. Just love the colors of a sunset. Madee and Ella have come to really enjoy just sitting back and admiring them too.

working for the weekend paid off






Busy week at work and home sure made for a nice weekend. I still ripped down all of the old dryall in the garage so we can get ready for new insulation, electrical, walls and drywall. Ok! Ripping down drywall stinks big time. Totally stinks!

Ok. Now for the fun. We started of Friday night with
the kitty parade. Good times. Madee rode her bike and pulled Ella in the Burley. They had a blast. Then, we headed over to where the parade ended at Chapin's Park. There was lots of games and events for the girls to enjoy. Face painting, bean bag toss, mini golf and a few others. Hot dogs were being eaten by all. Good stuff. Lots of fun. We headed for home after that for some rest time. After we all rested for a couple of hours and cleaned up we headed over to the South end of town to check out the fireworks. It's a nice area where most everyone sits too. It is in the ball diamond. There are only three exits to the diamond and that leaves the entire outfield for the kids to play safely in. Don't really have to watch them too close either. Good times. Fireworks were good too.

I even got two mini rides in. Was able to blow off just enough steam to relax but not too much. that left me fresh for that drywall project.

It was a nice spending some quality time just hanging with my three favorite women. Not a rushed weekend at all and I loved it.

Hope yours was swell too.

Oh yeah. Does riding your bike ever make you pucker? Me neither but apparently in the last photo I must have that problem. My mouth has a puckered look to it. So does the bill of my Walz cap. Hmm. What's up with that?
