Sunshine, Food, Beer & Bike :-) Pics
 
Ok, so most of the pics are not riding related, but sometimes it is not all about the bike or the ride. The whole weekend has be taken into account. Had an insanely stressful week, with angry customers, inept employees and backstabbing peers. Got home on Friday, reached into the fridge in the garage and pulled out the opening act to this so far great weekend. From there it just got better. Below tells the story and I hope your weekend has been equally great.

Friday, 5 PM - Let the Weekend Begin

Friday, 7 PM After shaking off the bad week, I decided to throw together a homemade pizza of fresh mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, portabella shrooms, fresh garlic and loads of spinach. The washdown was a Magic Hat #9 and a Bluegrass Brewing Co, Amber.

Saturday, 9 AM: Ok, finally some biking. Hit my favorite local single track park in Jackson, MO. A grand total of 7 miles of single track and 11 miles to and from the park. (this is a pic from back in the fall).

This was from today. Very muddy but a fantastic ride. I never get tired of riding this park. The dips, drops and switch backs, along with the mud make me smile. Makes me feel alive.

Come on, admit it. The beer and fish tacos after the ride looked awesome. Like I said. It ain't all about the ride for me. The food, the beer & and bike were all part of the ride for me. One without the other would not have been nearly as good;)

Agreed. Yesterday I rode 60mi 30mi of which was into a strong headwind, it felt good to chow down when I got home. And yes those fish tacos look awesome. So does the beer. :beer:

Damned you. Now I want some fish tacos and that pizza looked good too.

I was a distance runner in High School and the best part was always the food. Now that I have traded in my running shoes for a road bike, the food is still the best part.

bdinger 04-11-10 10:43 AM

Oh man, that looks GOOD. I was in SoCal a week ago, and the entire time all I wanted were some good fish tacos. Got plenty of hauty-tauty french food and other stuff, but still haven't gotten a good set of Fish tacos.

Dang you, Jay, now i'm hungry :)

Hmmmm, never had a fish taco but I have to admit they looked good in the photo. Oh yes, a good brew after a ride is quite rewarding. The more full bodied, the better.

breadbin 04-11-10 04:47 PM

wow looks fantastic right up my street with the beer and nice food:) especially the beer and food!! ha ha. never had a fish taco though so might try making one someday. what sort of fish is usually used in them? oh and nice pics of the biking too, that single track looks great fun and its not too far away a bonus;)

I can't tell if those fish tacos are the most disgusting or most awesome things I have ever seen.

I'm a pig so naturally I still want one. *drools....

Great pics! I love me some fish tacos. That pizza looked like a good way to flip a ****ty week. Scallops & asparagus & taters...you're livin' the life!
