Summer Training Rides

This is my busy time.  Therefore, I don't get to do much riding.  The riding I do get to do I don't consider very "exciting."  Hence, there has not been much written here lately.

I hate riding the same trails over and over again.  I like variety.  Lucky for me, we have a lot of trails around here.  So many trails I can easily go a season without duplicating or even riding the whole list for that matter.  However, most of these trails are a bit of a drive and are relatively long rides.  They are all day affairs.

My busy time dies around Labor Day.  It is then that I REALLY get to start my riding season.  Which really works best for me as I love the Fall.  During the Fall I get to go ride all the epic, all-day, high alpine singletrack that fills my dreams during the rest of the year.  I live for these challenging rides out in the wilderness away from everyone else.  But until then, I drudge away at the same old trails close to town.  Each time I go out I get a little more bored with the same choices, but try and challenge myself and build endurance and work on techniques for the adventures coming soon.  These training rides will prepare me for the dreamy Fall rides that await.

Some views to fill your mind.
