Chili Ride Recap

#3, Brent, and I made a trip down to Lake McMurtry for the annual Chili Bike ride. It's our first time doing this ride. 

The challenge is to ride all four trails in 6 hours.  An additional challenge is riding the 7 miles between the trails.  We skipped this so we wouldn't be home too late Sunday evening. Each trail is about 7 miles long with a variety of trail types.  The trails were muddy which made riding them a bitch and the fact we all were on single speeds made the day particularly enjoyable for our knees.  But all was fun, the weather was beautiful.

No significant injuries to report.  #3 bitched about bruising his ribs, but neither Brent or I saw him wreck, so he might just be a wuss.  No equipment failures either!

#3 pissed off again. Nice socks. 
#3 on SW trail.  These trails feature out and backs, which I think is UnAmerican.

Brent hated seeing markers every .25 miles.  This about sums up his thoughts.
This isn't bike related, but an awesome shot of Toure Murray blocking a shot from behind during WSU's crushing win over Creighton last week. This appeared on Sports Illustrated's homepage and needed a spot somewhere on this blog.

  1. Well it is a little hard to have equipment failures on a SS, which is the beauty of it isn't it?
