Yesterday was my birthday. I thought my long streak of having my birthday off was going to come to an end, but due to a bizzare twist of fate I found myself with the day free. I didn't mind if I had to work; I had the two adjacent days off and I really like my job an the people I work with.
Did I ride?
Well, I guess the streak was broken after all.
I did re-caulk the tub, cleared the drains, cleaned my shop and filled our dumpster so the lid wouldn't close.
But I digress...
Local trails. We all have them. I've written before about how after so many years I'm still not bored riding at the res. I look at it sort of like a puzzle. Half the fun is trying new ways to link the trails to keep them fresh.
Today was one of those days.
I didn't want to drive anywhere but I wanted to get in a decent ride. I could do a TdT, but the weather was not as promised, and I was a little short on time so staying local(er) was the way to go. I could do a Kitchen Sink, but with the construction there, parts might be blocked off.
Then I got the idea for a Super Sidewinder Loop. I'd get the mileage, time, elevation gain, and terrain I wanted without crossing RT44. By varying the order and direction of the trails things would stay interesting.
And they were.
