Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Park Pointe: Happy to be bruised and not broken. Two days ago I took my first fall in a very long time on an invisible slime-slicked wood boardwalk at Duthie. Hitting the hard wood (wood hard?) resulted in a few bruises. I was worried that I had cracked a rib, but I had no problems with it today, so it must just be bruised to go with the other ones. GR was in good shape, but Duthie was pretty muddy, so I didn't venture to Soaring Eagle. Left in sun but rode the last 30 minutes in rain. Last 7 days: 6 solid rides, 18h 36m ride time, and 21,208' of climbing. Time for a few rain days.

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: First time for everything, both good and bad. In the almost 1300 times I have ridden over and back through Grand Ridge, most of the time I also ride over and back to Soaring Eagle. As I was riding across the Duthie boardwalk for about the 2500th time heading to SE, my front tire washed out and I went down hard for the first time. The wood was so slick with invisible moss and slime that I could hardly stand on it to get back on the bike. At first I thought this must rank high in my all time stupid moves, but I've decided that will only be true if I do it again! It also might be the first time I've done the hard GR-D-SE combo 4 days in a row, but I am not going to look back through 10 years of logs to find out. I'm bruised (including a rib likely cracked) and tired from 5 straight days of riding totaling 16 hours. Time to sleep in. Bruised right rib/right hip/right upper arm/left calf muscle

MTB 3:15:00 [4] 33.4 mi (10.3 mph) +3738ft
ahr:119 max:144 weight:147lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Binge riding with "new" bike fever. After a great road ride on Saturday, it's been hard MTB rides the last three days. Conditions are great for this time of the year, and my new fork makes it feel like I am riding a new (and even better) bike. There are still a lot of leaves where KCP hasn't blown yet, but they cut out all of the trees that fell over the weekend. I only saw one other rider, at 2h 38m into my ride.For the second day in a row, it started raining two minutes after I got home.

Monday Nov 1 #

MTB 3:25:00 [4] 33.7 mi (9.9 mph) +4029ft
ahr:117 max:145 weight:147lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Ferrari now on steroids. I've always thought of the Rolling Rocket as my two wheeled, human powered Ferrari (Daytona? F40? Dino? V-12 F1?). With the addition of my new RockShox SID Ultimate SL Race Day fork, it feels like the bike got a steroid boost.

Sunday Oct 31 #

MTB 3:20:00 [4] 34.2 mi (10.3 mph) +3899ft
ahr:128 max:153 weight:146.8lbs

Grand Ridge Rt-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Feel another year younger day. Actually, it's another birthday where I still feel 35, health and fitness-wise. Knock on wood, I don't even have any orthopedic issues. Thanks to the mountain bike, a lot of the time I still feel like a kid! My BD present from Tracy is an outdoor pizza oven. Perhaps we should wait to use it until her birthday in May, since it was certainly not on my list! No problem, I got myself a new XC race fork for the bike, and its inaugural ride was today. Looking forward to a pizza dinner and desert:)
