So I was under the weather on Friday and decided to take a half day to clear my head and sweat my cold. I ended up riding Government Canyon which is very rocky and technical, with some of the best climbing in San Antonio. Things started off well, and Tig one of the Houston Mojo's and I got started around 14:00. On our first climb, my hands were feeling rough, I could tell the difference between the aluminum and ti bars for sure.
Half way through the ride and still plenty of climbing to do, but Mary had a different agenda. I was struggling, my hands were killing me. By the time we reached the end of the ride, a nice rocky downhill with the best vista's of the canyon, my hands were toast. I could barely hold onto the bars. When we reached the truck, I had to show Tig my hands, cause I think he thought I was just a slacker... I have two huge blisters on each palm... Mary and I have since parted ways. I'm back to my EC90's, so much more comfortable.
