“A weekend spent riding is never a weekend wasted.”


Weekend ride

This weekend is set to be busy. I was expecting to go with the SLMC to Huntington Canyon on Sunday, but turns out Sunday Mass is this weekend, so looks like I’ll be busy.

I really want to get out and take some photos though. I need to head back out to Wolf Creek Pass, Monte Cristo, and maybe Johnson’s pass to do so. I also need to take a trip down Mirror Lake Highway, but one at a time.

Below is the ride I’m planning on this week. Lots of Canyon roads, minimal highway, and a stop at an awesome reservoir complete with cliff jumping that I’ve always wanted to go to. I’d love to have some company, but I will be making random stops for photos… but I also don’t want to be gone ALL DAY. So I’ll be quick. I plan to leave no later than 8:15 from the Chevron start location on the map. Hoping to be at Causey by noon, might buy food to take and eat there, or stop at Red Cliff Cafe. Might stop at the Shooting Star on the way home.

Hopefully I’ll have some friends to ride with!! Meet me at the Chevron on the map, KSU 8:15 AM!!

Riding in a group? or Alone?

I struggle between wanting to ride alone, and wanting to ride with some friends. On one hand I really like group rides (small groups of 3-4), but I don’t have the same kind of control. I can’t stop to take a photo of gorgeous scenery, or take a quick break. I have to ride with the group and wait with the group, not something I’ve ever really been fond of. Sometimes I get pretty anxious just waiting around at a gas station while everyone smokes and chats, I just want to get back on the road. But I do love the company and security that comes with a group.

I really want to do this ride and take photos but I REALLY don’t want to go alone because a lot of it are less traveled, dirt roads miles from any town. What to do, what to do?

What do you prefer?

Sorry for the absence

Sorry for the absence everybody. I have been dealing with a personal tragedy. I lost my favorite riding buddy, Rebel.

Riding has been helping me deal with the loss, I will be writing an update about my recent escapades soon.
