And that is because, lo and behold, the flowers are up…
Never in my time living in Park City have I seen such a late summer, such a large snowpack, or the trails this far behind.
Besides working on getting peoples bikes built up and forks serviced, I actually rode this weekend. Friday was a dirt flavored day. Flying dog was full of wet spots…and people. Good to see people out there, little hard for me because I could spend all day out there shooting the shit…if I had all day. Oh well, nice day for a ride.
Speaking of dirt…the Dirtburger happened. I know its late to post…but hey, its in IA….and those of you in MN already knew about it….so fuck off.
Next year that sucker will be in the crosshairs…because I most likely will not be doing RAGBRAI three years in a row…unless I win the lottery and hire two more people at the office/shop. You pick the odds.
Sunday brought another great day of riding….this time on the touring bike….tackling the 15% short grades and gravel of Silver Creek. One of these weekends I”m going to see if those backroads can get me to Tollgate.
Should be a blast….with the training diet/etc I”ve been sticking to, my staff will be two cans high while I’m asleep on the couch.
NOTE: Trailside party to celebrate the opening of the bike park. SATURDAY, 11-5. DWC tent and Bon Scot bar 2-5.
