The wacky internet connection at the campground I’m staying in has prevented regular blog updates while I’ve been in Moab. Riding solo I don’t have much bike porn to share anyways and it’s nice to take a break from the
beast blog for a few days. I finally seem to have a strong connection so I thought I’d fire up a pic and a few words to make sure nobody calls out the search and rescue folks ;)
The riding has been great and I got to go all the way up to 11,600′ to ride The Whole Enchilada which has been a goal of mine for years. :) Without a bike buddy photos have been minimal which has allowed me to focus on just riding. Although I’d still prefer to have a partner in crime on a MTB trip – going at 100% my pace sometimes is fun and it’s amazing how fast to ride when you have no reasons to stop.
I’m at the end of my 4th full day here in Moab. Sadly I have to leave tomorrow around noon. After a few days of tweaking I have my bike’s suspension dialed to the faster chunkier terrain and my body is finally adapted to the higher elevation just as I have to leave town. :( Next time I’m here I’ll make sure I have 2 weeks to enjoy the amazing trails the area has to offer so my bike and body will be at 100%.
Now the hard part – deciding what trail to ride tomorrow AM before I leave town???
BTW – the blog will be back with regular updates starting next Monday.
