So, I’m not sure if there are any official rules about passing during a race. But two people who passed me yesterday did it wrong. One guy came up behind me and yelled at me to get out of the way. Before giving me a chance to move, he crashed into my side, bumping into my right handlebar and nearly knocking me over, and then sped off ahead of me. Another guy came up behind me and screamed at me “I need […]
I went on a 38 mile ride for my birthday. I was planning to ride to Alta ski resort. But I got on the wrong trail on the way to Alta, and I had to hike-a-bike for nearly two miles. I did make it to Tanner’s Flat campground and then turned around. The ride down Little Cottonwood Canyon was thrilling.
I wasn’t able to ride on the trail because the snow was too deep. I always feel nervous riding on the road because I’m worried about getting hit by a car. I was particularly worried about getting hit this morning because of all of the fog. But, I made it safely, although my hands were freezing and my feet were cold too. When the winter commuting season begins next year, I will need to buy some ski gloves and wool socks. http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9
So, a few days ago I was riding in a short sleeve shirt and shorts. This morning, there was a blisstery snow storm. I guess that’s spring though – one day winter, one day warm. http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9
I saw quite a few animals on the trail this morning. I ran into numerous deer. I also passed a large quail. Then, towards the bottom of the trail, I saw a fox. I took out my camera to take a picture, but it got away too quickly. Its interesting that I wouldn’t see so many of these animals during the winter months. http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9
We went camping with the family down at Capital Reef over the weekend. It was a fun trip. I brought little Spency on a hike with the rest of the family and I was really surprised that, at the age of 2 and 1/2 years, he insisted on hiking almost the entire way to the top unassisted. I tried to carry him on several occasions, but he kept pushing me away. He’s going to be a great outdoorsman. http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9
