Well the fat lady has sung and the Griswalds vacation is done except for the folding of laundry.
We had by far the best week of weather that one could have asked for in the valley of the sun.
First two days were a bit on the warm side but that was just a good buffer for some mid westerns that
had not seen the sun in months.
We got to spend a lot of time walking in the desert and
watching the flowers open.
I made it up to Flagstaff and rode with Gnome and Thom from Form Cycles on what was an amazing day of single track. With tons of climbing and miles of descending.
The desert was a bloom and nothing is better than a dip in the pool after a long hike in the sun.
The Boy was a fish and spent at time from dawn till dusk in the water.
And single track and lots of it. Thanks again to Yuri I got to ride ride ride and it was a mellow week not pushing it hard just pedaling and smiling enjoying the ride. I got to ride six of the eight days we were out there and got to ride some trails that did not exist when I live in the valley. New trails new faces and good times....
Now time to get back to work and get ready for what is to come. First Wors this weekend although it has been wet and more wet for weeks now so not sure how the trails are going to be. This same weekend here in LAX is a up hill TT and Crit so in some way and shape I will be racing this weekend.. Just not sure where and when yet..
