It’s been a great weekend with lots of hangout time and the riding is getting better. I got out Friday for an afterwork ride and it was the best yet since finishing Tour Divide. I’m reaching a point where I experience spurts of “oooh… I feel strong on my bike again.” I still get tired on a long climb, but am starting to feel MUCH better. I don’t think I’ll go riding with the guys just yet, but when I’m ready, I think it’s going to be good.
Brendan and I also changed the oil in the Karmann Ghia and washed her. He’s had lots of real rides this weekend, but we’ve also had lots of chill time. I had to work Saturday, but it’s just nice to be back in the home/work routine.
I’m sure I’ll have more adventures soon enough to post up, but until then I’m working on my daily writeups from TD, which I will provide links to (they will be a section on our siren site) and I will have a pic of the day here with a little something. I don’t know if I can do a pic every day, but want to start sharing and talking about some pics from the TD.
The photo above is from the drive up. Matt, Brendan and I drove together from Tucson. I had began the no-hairbrushing-phase of my journey a week in advance just to make sure it would work o.k. 🙂 This was a quick stop at the Glen Canyon Dam on the way up.
