Got home from Sudbury at 3 am (a collision at the French River shut down highway 69 so I returned via North Bay, which added about an hour to the trip) and was awake at 6 am as usual. I suck at sleeping in.

Spin class 55:00 [3]


I honestly worked harder mountain biking yesterday.

Mountain biking 1:45:00 [3] 11.0 km (6.3 kph)

Kivi Park in Sudbury
Another rental bike...a Kona...27.5 wheels

I had skied and snowshoed at this new and awesome park in February.

The single track was, well, made Marquette look like a pump track. A lot of hike a bike. But with totally amazing views. The skate ski trails are actually wonderful gravel roads, winding their way over the Cambrian rocks.

Definitely need to allow more time next time.

Jogging (In town) 25:00 [2]
shoes: Hoka

Hopefully not the last warm evening jog of the year.

And I didn't even stop for ice cream. I should correct that next time.

Mountain biking (Trail) 1:48:00 [3] 25.75 km (14.3 kph)

This is the last weekend before my son goes back to University, so I asked him what he wanted to do today. His reply? Mountain biking. OK!

We made an afternoon trip to Island Lake (the one off I96, not the one we camped near in the Hiawatha National Forest). Blue trail first. About half way around I convinced him to try my 29er.....yes it is small for him, but really, his 26" bike he's had since he was 13 years old or so is small too. He appreciated how it climbed up the rooty hills better than the 26" bike. I waited and waited for him with about a mile to go on the blue trail....then turned back to look for him. "Mom, I broke your bike". Well, bent a place that isn't receiving a seat post without some delicate reconstructive surgery. Somewhere along the way, he stopped to raise the seat higher than what we set it at when we swapped bikes. Yup, past that place where no bike seats should be raised, as it turned out.

I didn't want to bash it with a rock to bend it back, so we tucked the seat/seatpost in his hydration pack, switched bikes again, and rode back the trail head without sitting down. That wasn't so bad after all, so when he said he wanted to keep riding, we did the Yellow loop. Me, without a seat. It wasn't that bad, but it is nice to have a seat to brace against on some turns (didn't realize that until I didn't have one.....).

On the Blue trail, there's " The Place Where W4J Dropped Her Chain", "The Place Where Cousin Lisa Broke Her Chain during December Chill", and now, "The Place Where Milton Broke My Bike".

Considering I've ridden there maybe 6 times......that's a lot of memories to sort through on each ride around from now on!
