Yesterday was my biweekly PT session. They are happy w/ my range of motion and gaining strength. To celebrate I rode w/ Danny and his dog, Pepper, on Soldiers’ wash trails today. A bit more chunk and ups and downs. There were several climbs that caused me to stop and catch my breath and let my HR drop. Riding on firm red slick rock, other places the tread is red cobble like ball bearings. Amazing what inertia propelling a 26″ dia wheel squishing a 2.4 Continental Trail King tire inflated @ 25 psi filled w/ Stans. My bike is soo much fun to ride. The fork continues to please me. I rode many step ups. The exercise bike sessions taught my legs strength that has gained me confidence to pedal.
9 miles in 90 mins gained 1140′, we rode from Danny’s for maybe 1.5 miles of pavement out and back. truly in Sedona you can ride to the dirt.
Forecast has a probability of showers. Clouds moved in this afternoon perhaps in preparation.
I am giving thought to buying a round trip plane ticket to Kauai and stay in George’s time share. The island has some mtn biking on it. $600 airfare. Stay prolly the 5 days he has the room. I’m happier w/ just 5 days.
Tomorrow is another moonshine party @ BnB.
I am making brownies for the SuperBowl party.
