August 2007

Yesterday I went on a short ride on the Triumph twice around slope park. It’s just a few minutes from my house, and has a little bit of the feel of riding through manicured wilderness with trees overhanging the road in some places, and inviting round cement tables surrounded by grass, trees, and shade. It seems like a short ride, but I was actually gone almost an hour. According to my GPS it was 35 miles, took 50 minutes, with an average speed of 43 mph.

Today I tried revamping the Lake Jacomo ride, which also goes through swope park. I had hoped to extend in by riding around the lake, as the rode was closed last year. But there were thunderstorms coming, and muntes after I hit the road, rain started coming down. I headed back and the really hard rain hit just as I was getting home and putting the bike into the garage.
