Back from Hiatus
Well, between work, vacation, and all the work from coming back from vacation, riding and blogging have taken a back seat. But now after a lovely 21 mile spin this morning, I can give you an update. We had a lovely trip down to Arizona making a large loop to Tucson, then north to the high plateau exploring Flagstaff for a few days. Then north through Zion National Park to Cedar City where we enjoyed two days of the Shakespeare Festival. www.bard.org.
In riding news, I have decided to sign up for the Cache Valley Century on August 26th. http://www.cvveloists.org/century.htm This should give me a good focus goal to work towards for the next 45 days or so.
On this morning's ride, I caught up with a fella riding a nice Rans V-Rex. First 'Bent I've seen in a long time on any of my rides. We had a nice few miles together as I was on the inward leg, and he was heading out for 50. Wish I had would have had time to just continue along with him. He is also expecting to ride Cache Valley, so we might be able to pace each other.
Here are a few pics from our desert adventure. Enjoy!
