Stellar Weekend!!!

So I took Friday off work to go ride(mountain) with someone (a guy ) in Colorado Springs. 17 miles of pure fun!!! We had a great time together and he even made me a sandwich. He rides single speed and well Im still a gearie, had a fun time just riding.

Saturday, I rode with my girls (roadbike) 72 miles. OMG, I was completely exhausted by the time I hit home. I had to cancel my Sunday mtb ride with the girls but we all were feeling the same so it was no biggie.

Taking the next few days off the bike my legs are dying, but none the less I'm having such a great riding year!!!

Glad to see you had a blast, snowy!! What kind of sandwich was it?



I get to ride with Jon, his pink tights and his rainbow socks today. *sigh*
At least it will be on the new bikes, though.

Siu,
He made us turkey wraps and after the ride we finished the sandwiches with some beers. It was very chill!!!

Air, I got you text on Friday we were actually getting ready to ride when you sent it. Yes I had a wonderful time. It was only the second time I actually put that many miles on my mtb bike at one given time. I was worried at first but by the time we were finished it didn't even seem like we rode that many miles. Plus the company was just too much fun. We both took pretty hard spills but we laughed them off and kept riding.

Siu, I know Jon will keep you entertained!!!

Oh did I mentioned he is a FIREFIGHTER!!!! YEAH BABY

KT, no the last guy I got him to purchase a road bike. He was already racing mtb when I met him. And a DAMN good racer at that.

I'm both a roadie and mountain bike chick. Maybe one day I will give the singlespeed a try but for right now I'm loving the gears

I know he was already racing mtb, but I remember you joking around out be cheating on road biking and getting into mtb because of him.

I didn't know he bought a road bike too, but it doesn't matter...it was just for teasing fun.

Well he helped me find that love again for the mountain bike and encouraged me to race. Last year I was riding alot of mountain and no road. But this year and especially after the break up I'm been riding 120-140 miles a week both road and mountain.

I've lost so much weight I had to go down two dress sizes, its amazing the therapy the bike gives you when your broken-hearted
