My Favorite Nut

Plan: Ride 2-3:hours. On trail. Tempo pace. Emphasis on technique.

Result: Walnut Bend was the trail of choice today. Before I begin... prepare for heat.


Essential cold for a hot day. Good shade out here, tho...


Bone dry. Luckily there is enough natural lime in the soil here to keep the dirt from turning into powder...


The creekbed.
I take a brake to fill bottles and my stomach.


Potato chips taste better during rides. Fact.

It's a great ride today. Good emphasis on technique. My main focus... using Keith Code's recommendation of completing turns in one move. No mid-course corrections. This is not easy. Have you tried it?
