My epic Saturday

Today I went and did the COMPLETE Indian Creek loop. I had forgotten how much uphill was involved. This is the first time I have done this trail in a non fall/Winter setting. It was beautiful. I left the apartment with the Single Speed, remembering it wasn't to full of hills HAHAHAHA.... yep that was wrong. I was super stoked to make this full loop, I did have a few little issues however. I blew a flat in the rear and near the end my left crank arm started to come loose ( I think from the climb on the 2.2 miles shortcut to the CT). Next time I am gonna bring the geared bike so I can ride more/walk less. Now to the pics!

That is just gorgeous countryside. And congrats on getting around it all. Sorry about the flat, but I'm guessing from your posts in general that you're the kind of guy who doesn't let those sorts of things get to you.
