A few from a weekend ride. It was nice to shake off some of the cobwebs. Ended the day riding pretty aggressively for me. I can't believe I waited so long to do a proper suspension upgrade.

Nice Video Eddy, I love the almost traffic free roads and relaxing music ( although at the start, 0:40, I thought the Mexican Cops were after you...lol )

You know how a lot of the time we justify riding instead of some other mode of transport because being on a bike is objectively better and more fun?

Not so for me today. I planned on riding up Boulder Canyon to Nederland and then along the Peak to Peak Highway to Estes Park with maybe a detour through Rocky Mtn National Park. Within the first 20 miles I could feel some serious heat. At 50 miles, I felt dizzy. I stopped up Little Thompson Canyon a little ways to shorten my trip and cool off a bit. Drank a bunch of water, ate some sugar, sat in the shade for a bit.

After soaking my shirt and neck gaiter in the river, I continued toward Estes Park. It worked for a while, then I ran into standstill traffic, I assume from a wreck up canyon. It got too bad and I was worried about whether the bike or I would be the first one to keel over. The temp on my dash thermometer was 120 at one point. Even while moving at 60 mph and up, it never got below 110. So I turned around, avoided a couple near wrecks in Lyons and went right back home.

Radare and I took a little ride around Loveland today. Rather than a particular destination or route, we just figured on a rough area and kind of went where the bikes pointed. I knew of a mural in town, so we killed a bunch of time looking for it.

It was really nice to ride sort of aimlessly.

That was a really nice ride. I haven't been out on a casual, go nowhere ride in a long while. We'll have to do it again, soon, maybe exploring some of these forest roads.
