Last day of school....

.... and my little girl is now officially a 1st grader! Wow how time flies. Glad to see kids are taking advantage of the bike rack @ school and are riding their bikes to school! If K gets the transfer to E's school, they can ride their bikes to school! What a great way to start and end your day... together... on a bike!

This weekend we're heading to the Frio to do a little camping, and a lot of rope swing adventures! Let's see if the old man can handle the high swing this year!

Government Canyon

Went out for a little ride on Government Canyon, when I called the ranger station to verify that the trails were open, they said yes, but that the front country was going to be a little wet, so we skipped the warm up on the front country and rode from parking area "C" to the main loop @ Joe Johnson, then hung a right to Recharge and began the climb up Far Reaches. I hadn't been out there since before the Terlingua trip, there were only three of us, Jeff29, BernieMac, and me... It was a nice casual pace with rest stops to let everyone catch their breath. I felt super strong and cleaned all of Far Reaches save for one bad line that left me high centered on a ledge. By the end we got in 13 or so miles. It was a great day to be on the trail with temps in the mid 70's and a slight breeze.

Need to get more long rides in. The Wednesday R&I is fun, but isn't doing what I need it to for me fitness wise. Looking to work in a Friday after work ride @ Government Canyon & Flat Rock Ranch.

Don't be a Jerk!

The first part of the video reminded me of Kent "the Mountain Turtle" Peterson... not because he's a jerk, but rather because of the bike. Looks very similar to Kent's little red Dahon. Why is Kent always right about stuff? May have to look into picking up one or two of these as "fun" bikes for the family.
