hype

gary the waterboy, critter and i met at 4:30 am to head to
preskett.
"chased" a lambo on our way outta town.
well the big loop was pretty damn sweet
the climb was tough
when we got to the top we had our doubts - seemed too short
suffice to say the dh was long and fun and we were tired by the end.
tore out my sidewall
critter had tire trouble too
other than that all was well.
gary almost ate it a few times
badgering was prevalent
but what else is new?

SSSS

SatSouthmtnSingleSpeed





























































me and gary the waterboy left tempe around 7 and
rode over to south mtn. we had a rip roarin romp on desert classic on our way to
telegraph for a little hike a bike.
we saw the park rangers ushering out the rest of the car traffic so
we knew we'd have clean air on the road so we killed our lights and rode
by the ambient city light. it was pretty cool and we had a little tailwind so we were at buena vista before we knew it. then we tore ass down the mtn.
30 miles, 2k+ feet climbing and three hours turning pedals.
good stuff. one of the better night rides i've been on tho not much room for error and mechanicals.
